    I saw the original about 2 months ago. The best thing about it was the camerawork, so they'll better hire the same guy (which they most definitely won't do). I thought the plot was a bit lacking, or over the top, but perhaps that was the purpose. I don't expect anything good from Will Smith.

    I wish the Americans would leave the good Asian films alone.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I didn't really like the film, so no big loss for me.

    I totally agree about the film. I didn't find the plot particularly touching or insightful or interesting, nor the characters interesting... but I do remember some of the interesting shots. One being the main character's battle down the corridor. That was awesome.

    (Can't be a worse film to remake than My Sassy Girl.)

    Furthermore, I think Spielberg should stop [re]making films. Period.
