All i can say is I hated the original Dread movie......it was so corny and BoBo. But this remake is pretty dang neat. I suggest if you like action movies to give it a watch. Note: very very gory movie
Let me know if anyone else thought is was OK or horrible.....but i know for a fact it is way better then the original that's for sure!

roflmao, and I agree it'll likely be a piece of S&#t, they'll most likely undervalue fight choreography and try to cover it up with lots of "Style", lots of "splosions", slo mo, incoherent cut scenes & camera angles, totally butchering what made Raid so amazing.That movie honestly met everything I wanted in an action film. And I read that there is going to be an American remake....which will probably fail.
But, the same group is working on a sequel.
Personally, I refer to it as Dances with Smurfs.clone wrote:but then again one looks at the success of Dances with Wolves... OOPS, I meant Avatar and then has to ask why bother?
I'm more interested today in watching the original than I am the remake.... while I applaud the growing tendency in films to be darker/more honest many fail to actively pursue the " honest with the material." part.... so now instead of films being campy/cheesy like the First Dredd the new action films are violence fetishes..... both are good and bad in different ways while neither prefers to even try at being ideal.I liked the first Judge Dredd Not because it was especially 'good' in any objective or subjective way, but I liked the cheesy, campy goodbad-ness, to coin a word.
