I saw the original several times throughout the years and it is right up there with it! I was a little hesitant at first with this re-make when I heard it was only 93 minutes long and the original was much longer! One thing it did is take out a lot of the dead space, meaning the boring parts! This movie is non-stop action and well worth the money to go see in the big theater! They should have used China as a realistic scenario for bad guys, I felt they were trying to be politically correct by using North Korea which seemed to me NOT so realistic with today's events.

It was a typical modern-day action flick. Lots of explosions, shaky-cams, overly stylized people in gritty situations. Entertaining in some spots, cheesy acting in others. Still better than other movies in its genre. Wait for it to come out on Netflix or DVD.

There was a lot of action. The story was just ok. You get sucked into the action before you really know anyone though. Ending kinds sucked. I would wait for this to come out on pay per view.

I read all the reviews before seeing it and they all compared it to the original, so I tried to watch it without comparing. It was still bad and it doesn't even compare. It was cheesy and they did all this work at the end which didn't even seem to fit with the rest of the movie. No acting, no emotion but somewhat entertaining.

This movie was poorly deleloped when compared with the original although the special effects were better. The movie left too many unanswered questions and many of the incidents were unrealistic. Russia and North korea invading the US? Red China I would believe but North Korea an Russia lack a sufficient population for the task.
