Chaplain-Grimaldus Exactly. They have to make up for it with better story, better acting and good old fashioned fx.

I will watch Chinese, French, Korean films all day any not be disappointed.

I love the fact the budgets are usually pathetic compared to a Hollywood movie, yet they make something 10x more visually impressive and have to concentrate more on that thing...err...story I think they call it

Squire I think it's pretty cheap just remaking foreign films instead of coming up with decent stories and taking a chance with them, but whatever this film is like it won't affect my opinion of the original. Having said that, during the film I think there should be pop ups every twenty minutes saying 'This is just a remake of a Korean movie. Watch the original'

I know that officially, it's based on the Joseph Delaney book series. But I refuse to acknowledge them part of the same universe, let alone a film adaptation of a book. Fuck Hollywood, the first few Spook's books kicked ass. Not even the dignity to put the Bane in the film

Avengers/Marvel films....
Hobbit films (that was 2 and is now 3)....
Twilight....
Hunger Games...
Seventh Son (about to come out, first in a book series)
Pacific Rim (plans to franchise),
Legion (was seen as the first in a trilogy)
District 9 (Sequel currently being made)

They want a proven platform that they can draw the punters in with. Why do you think Infernal Affairs was made into the Departed. Hollywood has been remaking Asian films for years and rumors of an Oldboy remake have been around since about 2004 I think. For years in the mid to late 00's pretty much all Hollywood horror blockbusters were asian remakes, list of them here: IMDb: American Remakes Of Asian Horror Films - a list by fuwwy11139

But the problem is, the Hollywood versions are all terrible.

Wusword77 I didn't like the first one and never understood why people liked it.

All this movie gets from me is a resounding Meh

Tyrannus The Poster looks cheap and terrible.
