The lack of faithfulness in this loose remake, however, doesn't change the fact that it's a fun way to spend a couple of hours.
The car chases were a lot of fun and the film did a nice job of folding moderately realistic technology into its plot without making us geeks cringe.
The film is safe for those with violence and explicit sex issues (PG-13), and I would say a good choice for people who see more than ten films a year. It won't lose a lot when it comes to video, so if you are so inclined, that is also a good option. With an opening weekend gross of $15M, it is likely to hit the stores early this fall.
