pros

  • production design; check the home of the father (Michael Douglas) and the office of the billionaire (Josh Brolin)
  • cinematography; the best moments are near the end
  • Susan Sarandon is both beautiful and lovely

cons

  • feels like a desperate attempt to live off the shine of the 80's (overrated) original
  • the slow pacing and stale direction made me go "when does it end?"
  • the story is stale
  • the lead actor is miscast, and exposes his lack of talent
