Note : Of course, it is not better than the original version but it was honestly a nice try. The action scenes were pretty neat and it has been a while since I have seen such an impressive vision of the future. However, they should have focused more on the pyschological and emotional turmoil lived by the main character and not so much on the action scenes."
The $25.5 million opening of this remake starring Colin Farrell was almost exactly the same amount that the Arnold Schwarzenegger original earned in its debut. Of course, that was in 1990 dollars; adjusted for inflation the original opened to over $48M. The remake has just barely cleared its reported $125M budget. "
