You can’t doubt Vin Diesel on this one – sequels do NOT have to suck! Maybe this man will begin a trend, and a better one than the current remake-all-of-the-great-movies-from-years-gone-by. Trust me producers, actors, backers, etc. – you shouldn’t touch some movies for a remake. No matter how good the re-make may be in your head or even in the theater: It isn’t going to be as good as the original.
Come on folks! Where is the originality? Has America dumbed down its citizenry so much there is nothing new and original out there to write or movie to make? I refuse to believe this. I think it is just pure laziness on the part of the film industry. You don’t have to work as hard on a re-make of a great story because the hardest part is already done – the story.
