Let Me In

Ineffectual streamlining of an already brilliant film.
There is a level of competence along with fleeting glimpses of originality that suggest Reeves should be making a movie of his own instead of remaking somebody else's as a ponderous failure.

  1. While I liked the original I wasn't exceptionally wowed by it and watching this I realised how very little of it I remember. It was never less than very good, I just wasn't particularly taken with it.

    The remake is essentially the same, just with some duff moments.

    If you've never seen the original or, I imagine, read the book then this would be a reasonable, slow paced, moody horror. Once you compare it to the superior, reasonable, slow paced, moody horror original it comes off badly.
