A Good Story With Bad Screenplay
on September 30, 2013
This is a great story to put on the big screen. Unfortunately the screenplay and acting did not deliver a quality experience. I think this version (2012) is worse than the one from 1984. I think in general - time-travel is intriguing topic and increases the chances of a film gaining acclaim. Still, the basic story here could be told better on the big screen. I thought the acting for the most part was poor – probably due to a poor script. Gina’s character was just not plausible. Emilie’s character sure recovered from the gunshot wound in a hurry.
I think there are many actors who could do a better job all around. I think the screenplay could be an order of magnitude better. I think the technology could be far better to create more realistic illusions. I just think some writer, director and producer needs to come along and really remake this film into what it could be.
