Damn, I wanted this to be a must see reboot! Then again could anyone top the great Peter Weller? I guess I should wait for it to be free on HBO?
It's really not a bad movie. When it gets stuff right, it nails it. It's just very flawed, particularly the pacing.

The important thing to remember when watching this is that it isn't the original movie, nor is it trying to be. In that respect, it does exactly what a good remake should do -- take the source material and spin it in a new direction, rather than tread ground that's already been done.
