Does not stray from the original too much. The leading ladies definitely steal the show. If you enjoyed Blade Runner, IRobot and 5thElement, you will enjoy the movie alot.

A great, fast moving movie will keep you interested and on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Exactly what I want in a summer movie!

GReat Move. This was a nicely created re-work of the classic original. The twists that were added actually improved on the "believability" over the original. THere was enough difference, actually, to qualify it as a totally different movie.
The story line kept moving very well. The elevator scene had me holding my breath even.
Definately two thumbs up!

Borrows all the memorable scenes from the original, but, other than special effects, doesn't add anything new or unique. If you're going to remake a successful film, a borderline cult classic, why bother if you can't come up with anything fresh?
As with the original, logic & sense don't have much of a place. The motivation for the villain, Cohaagen, is preposterous, and the threatened "invasion" would be undone if one character would just stop posing for the camera and think.
The one small upside for me was Kate Beckinsale. Her Terminator-esque/assassin take on the role originally performed by Sharon Stone, has its moments, but not enough to turn my thumb up.
Still, if you can enjoy the eye-candy (depending on you bent—Beckinsale, Biels, or Farrell), it's not a complete waste of time.
A borderline No/So-So.

I really liked this movie. It didn't take too long to get to the point and the action was amazing. Not the best movie I've ever seen but definitely worth it.
