Sort of a remake: old plot, new actors.

I would say this is a (stereo)typical Hollywood blockbuster flick - bad but enjoyable. The plot is messy, cheesy, lacks emotional element and have no signs of intelligent life but on the other hand the film is visually good. One of those generic films for money where they make a sequel/reboot and there is just something missing. Isn't it sad we got used to it and that we find those kind of films actually solid? But I still think it could be worse. 3-/5
