Perhaps. But plenty of films manage to be based on older material and not seem so derivative.
Don't be an idiot. That's like saying nobody should ever make a movie based on Martin Caidin's Cyborg because they'd have to steal too much material from the Six Million Dollar Man.

I agree with the the OP. I just saw this today and thought it was great. I got the same rush from watching it as i got from reading the original stories, which means that the director knew what he was doing when crafting it.
