I forgot how this version ended, but the original one with Arnold was better.

Unoriginal, hokey, and lackluster.

You'd think the FVRLibrary would have the "credits" listed...duh...

Remake or not it was long and boring...or maybe it just seemed long because it was so boring. Characters that I couldn't care less about and Kate Beckinsale was just plain annoying.

Just another totally unnecessary and LAME remake that explicitly says that it's too many people in real life and all of them need to be exterminated and kill themselves right now to save the Earth period.All of the POLITICAL ZOMBIES in real life like or LOVE this movie because they say it's action packed with good special effects.The action scenes and special effects in this extremist political propaganda REMAKE are really distractions aka more excuses for our elite slave masters in real life to DEPOPULATE us in real life right now more than ever before period,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The key to enjoying this movie is treating this movie as a new movie, not a re-make of the original. Then take your brain and put it on a shelf. Lots of senseless action, terrible writing and stupid story. From a sci-fi point, there are some cool ideas and all visuals are done very well. I didn’t fast forward this movie but I’m not going to remember it either.

While the multiple high-speed chases, detailed futuristic technology, and nonstop action will probably appeal to many, I view all that as window dressing for an altered story line which, in my opionion, is not an improvement over the original.

( 3 out of 5 stars ) Worth seeing,.. but not as good as I had expected ! And I LOVE this genre. Fast and loud and expensive. Its O.K., but try to see the first one,.. for the much better story-telling. ...P.S. I just saw it again ! (on 1-10-14) ,.. and its better the second time around (lower expectations ?). Mostly its a lot of chasing,.. but with very well done CGI effects, etc. ( ...changed the rating to four stars.)

If you think this is a simple remake, you are mistaken. Story line is different. Beautiful cinematography throughout, the movie was better than I anticipated. Action throughout.
