This new remake of The Day the Earth
Stood Still has added a lot of drab no-brainer waste-of-time
updates that look cheap and phony, especially the so-called special
Plus, they left out the cool flying saucer.
I've noticed when making a re-run of a
classic masterpiece, they run the risk of embarrassing themselves
-- like a disaster waiting to happen.
And they did just that for me.
Action speaks louder than words in this
tepid remake of an American science fiction classic, complete
with a watered-down script and an incomprehensible plot.
It turns out the aliens ARE green -- ecology
They're here to destroy the humans in order
to save the Earth.
It's a complete mutalization of a truly
great film, and if there's a cautionary message here, it's to
stop messing with the classics and start making some new ones.
The original movie, released in 1951, is
a classic science fiction drama called The Day the Earth Stood
In the new remake (of the same name), I
found this film to lack inspiration and to have a weak script
The beginning was interesting, but soon
fell flat and boring (in my opinion).
