A new kid is 'Home Alone'
on 31 December 2014
It would be very unfair for me to say that they should have brought back Macaulay Culkin for 'Home Alone 3', yes, the kid was a genius and yes he would have been better, but by 1997 he was simply just too old to play the part, so he could never done it. Besides, the actor here: Alex D. Linz isn't bad.
It's a enjoyable enough comedy, but lacks the charm of the first two classics. After stealing a top-secret computer chip, and, to fool their customers, four spies hide it in a remote-control toy car. It's young Alex's job, who is 'home alone' to spot them, and although he's ill, he's prepared.
Pale in comparison to the brilliant first two, 'Home Alone 3' is still much better than the fourth, which was a movie too far.
