History has shown that Hollywood knows how to take a classic and completely rape it of everything that made it special in the first place... there's
only one exception I can think of that improved on the original. War Of The Worlds but I attribute that success to Spielberg.
This is a case of 'just wait and see' for me. Keanu Reeves seems like a cliché and somewhat passé choice for a protagonist. Honestly!
Will special effects and a barrage of orange explosions and bullets win out over storyline and character development? Will it be turned into a sub 90
minute, substance free cash-in that's over before you finish your popcorn? My money says yes - but I hope I'm wrong.
