Conclusion – Personal thoughts and recommendations
I saw this movie back in cinemas mid last year and thought that perhaps it’s time I made a blog post about. This movie deserves all the appraise it was given and quite frankly, in my opinion, I think it deserved more attention. It an absolutely beautifully directed film with aspects that could label it as artistic. It’s definitely a favourite of mine, I thought it might let down the original which was a great film too but I’m very pleased with how it turned out.
I would recommend this film to anyone who was a fan of the original one as it incorporates many of the old movies flairs and direction. It truely is a good series I highly recommend.
To conclude, if you do decide to watch it, a good thing to keep in mind is it’s a reboot of the old one so give that a watch too. (I recommend the first cut!)
If you choose to see it, enjoy! And comment your opinion on the film in the comments or on my in-depth review of the film (warning: review contains spoilers from the film).
