I also don't understand all the hate on this movie. It seems nowadays all critics think their job entails is to criticize a movie. This movie is awesome and a fantastic take on a reboot that pays homage to the original. I actually read quite a few reviews from NON-critics who said they were skeptical to see the movie because of critics reviews and were glad they took the chance because they were very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it. I hope more of the public catches on (a la Batman Begins as exampled in the article) and it picks up steam so the next 2 films get made.
