It is not faulty logic that derails The Hills have Eyes, however, but faulty drama. The movie is a one-trick pony.
I can't really trust Ebert when it comes to horror films. As a remake, this is better than the original. It's quite terrifying and its purpose is to disturb and disgust. Ebert also reviewed the recent remake, Last House on the Left, and gave that a higher score. I don't know, in terms of pointless violence and disgust, that movie is actually worse. Especially considering how serious it takes itself.

I don't trust him in this department either, especially since he gave John Carpenter's The Thing a bad score, that review btw was pretty weird, I think Roger was a little confused going in to that one.
