I've never seen the original all the way through so I don't have a comparison for this entry. I need to rectify that though. Overall I found the film enjoyable. I knock it mostly cause I found the child Jacob to be an annoying modern spoiled kid who doesn't get the danger of the situation. Just hung up on himself and seemingly is existing outside the actual moment. I find Keanu to be a competent enough actor and felt this role was up to his talents. Jennifer Connelly always seems to have her A game on. Maybe I've just not seen her "off films" though. Kathy Bates was a tough nosed Secretary of Def that I bought into. Good acting imo. Maybe a bit preachy on the "save the earth" message, again it may be in the original also but it felt a bit heavy handed here so it's another tick down on my grading.
