This review is from: Alfie [DVD] (2004) (DVD)
Generally not in favour of remakes,
they are often pointless and very often the original was still the best anyway. However, this is one of those exceptions, and it is very good.
The original was very much a film of it's era, and belongs in the 60's, this one has been updated and moved to America.
The female cast in this film is very strong, Jude Law comes over as a more sensitive Alfie than Caine. But with the impact of Women's Lib he is up against women who are more stronger today.
I wasn't expecting too much from this film, and surprisingly found a remake that was certainly worth watching. But try watching it without thinking too much of Michael Caine 1966.
