I figured it was going to be better than your average remake since it has an 88% on RT and a 7.3 on iMDB, but better than the original? I'm going to have to take that with a grain of salt, no offense LD.
it's very true to the original- if you liked the original there's no way you won't like this one. Sounds like a lot of you were really touched by the original so maybe you'll still prefer it, I don't know, but you should go see it. Much of the dialogue is line for line with the original. The changes are subtle for the most part, the story isn't linear in it's chronology and the Locke (i think that was his name) character is replaced with a cop because Reeves didn't think a 1980s American city would let so many murders go uninvestigated. A few plot points changed but nothing helter skelter. Obviously it's glossier (albeit still fairly low budget) and like I said, I thought the performances were better and more endearing. Also, can you really f*ck with a soundtrack that has the breakup song?
It's spielberg meets pan's labyrinth, it's dope, go see. tell me what you think

This movie is about a near retiring detective, Morgan Freeman, who is unhappy with his job and the detective brought in to replace him (Brad Pitt). They have to work together through their own differences to find the source of a series of a suspicious murders, each based on one of the deadly sins. All in all its about 2 detectives looking for a serial killer.
At first the acting seems really bad but as the movie goes on it gets really good. It's a smart movie and the ending is very good.
