big money, nice set and shine to it all but a poor film with a cast who under perform and a script devoid of any charm or charisma drag this to the bottom of the ocean so to speak. This is a remake of one of the great films of the past 30 years in sci-fi, the original has a feeling, a jokey sense of brilliance that radiates through and is one of my most watched films in recent years. This can be viewed against that and on its own and neither way does anything other than stink the place out, i felt very underwhelmed at this. Farrell looks like someone who is always looking towards the smiling cheque looking his way if he completes this. Cranston as a villain works in breaking bad, here he fails and my toddler son would be a more realistic foe. TERRIBLE.
