Senator Thomas Jordan: And you bring me rumors and conjecture.
Ben Marco: I started with nightmares. Rumors, conjectures, that's a giant leap forward.
Since I just wrote about the original, I might as well comment on this one.
This remake is actually pretty good. It helps that a lot of great talent is involved. Jonathon Demme serving as director. A cool Washington stepping in for Sanatra. Meryl Streep playing the bitch mother. and Liev Shreiber, who I have always been a fan of, playing my favorite character from the original. Then the movie adds in Jeffrey Wright to play a character further expanded upon in this version, making things seem even better.
The movie works well as a thriller. The update concerning the various forces of evil at work considering the more modern time frame is effective and suitable.
Its definetely worth a watch, but see the original, as it is much better.
