Review:
This movie might be a remake, but they did a good job of making it current from the get-go.
I wasn't crazy about the first film with Patrick Swayze, yeah he was hot, but it just wasn't a blockbuster to me. I think now it might be the unsophisticated technology they had back then making movies. The effects, cinematography and general way it was made was incredible this time around. 
As you can tell, I like this version waaaaaay better. Great actions scenes, and the whole movie was full of anticipation and edge-of-the-seat moments. 
Yeah, there was a couple of deja vu moments... and Chris Hemsworth, (yummy), bore an uncanny resemblance in voice and mannerisms to the late, great, Patrick Swayze. It was kinda cool to see that.
This is definitely one of the better remakes I have seen! Kudos to the director.


4/5
