I am so torn…. I loved the original. I have watched it dozens of times. The scene where the kids are sitting in school, they look out the window and see paratroopers landing yards away from them is seared into my brain. I have lamented about this film before in ‘5 Or more… Military Movies’. So to say I am skeptical of this being remade would be putting it lightly.
I am suspect of most remakes, and for good reason. The majority of films that are being remade… DON’T need to be remade. But I will not prejudge, well, as much as I can because of my predilection for the original. I do have to say, from the current trailer, the action looks good and the cast they have assembled seems to be a good fit. Only time will tell on this one.
