After a rousing setup, this visually striking remake falls back much too heavily on its action roots, with one chase scene after another and another. After a while, it's tedious.

Decent review, he didn't hate it. Hopefully this movie will land somewhere in the 50s.

It's always funny to hear about someone list action as a critique in an action movie no matter how justified they are.

He's not saying there shouldn't be any action, just that there should be a balance between action and story, whithout having the former overwhelming the latter. Also, how you execute the action is important. Terminator was basically a two hour long chase movie and yet the story - while simple - was so effectively told and the pacing so tight that it never felt boring or repetetive. I'm not sure if that's the case here.

Wow, way to drop the ball on that one...

Can't wait for this to fail epically

Why are your other 2.5 reviews fresh, but this one is rotten? How come?

Wow remaking a Arnold film that did not need to be remade. Brilliant Hollywood. How about you make a movie that is original and don't let those butcher producers touch the film itself.

This crap isn't visually striking in any way.

Ppl talk like the 80s version was a classic. Sorry, but it really is not. Although I do love verhoeven as a director. Black book is an amazing film! Like to see him come back to America!

While I'm not sure whether or not you could call it a classic, the original was a very entertaining film with a decent amount of twists and foor for the thought added to the action. It was also a film where for once Arnold managed to come off as someone vunerable.

The took down the review! is it that bad?

Well, that's Conan and Total Recall. I guess Predator or The Running Man will be next. The only Schwarzenneger film that should ever be remade is Hercules In New York. With Kevin Sorbo.
