don't bother if you know the original

It's blatantly obvious that the only reason for this remake was the gimmick release on 6/6/06. Otherwise, a completely pointless exercise as the acting in the original was far superior and the more explanatory parts of the storyline are just brushed over or omitted. The result lacks the tension and cohesion of the original. Best bit: the principal setting is supposed to be London, but the movie was shot in Prague - in the final car chase, watch for the big red neon sign in Czech! rofl

Disappointing. The remake stays quite close to the original, some scenes are almost exactly the same but with none of the tension or scares of the original movie. Given some of the actors involved such as Michael Gambon, and some good performances, (especially Mia Farrow), and the original writer this should have been alot better.

More or less the same as the original...so would beg the question as to why anyone would bother?? But none the less its a good film...if you havnt already seen the original then watch this one instead!!

If you have seen the original no need for this. If you havent seen the original then watch it instead of this. another pointless remake.
