I remember seeing the original movie (1972) as a kid and being fascinated by it. This re-make is a good modern adaptation.
The actors are great, the dialogue and pre-disaster scenes are good but don't get in the way of the action, which, let's face it, is what people want to see in this movie. Its pacing is so fast and smooth you almost feel sad when it's over as it barely seems than an hour and half has gone by.
The CGI for the most part holds up pretty well. There are a few explosions that feel like you are playing a computer game from the 90s, but it never gets too distracting and for the most part is quite impressive and manages to get its message across in terms of imaginary.
