There`s always been an appeal to the concept of the â€œdifferently-abled badass. How do you make a cool character even cooler? Give him or her a disability to overcome. The audience is immediately along for the ride, and given how difficult feats of badassery are to accomplish even in perfect health, the character instantly wins our respect. So, how does a detective go about detecting without the use of his sight? Apparently, very goofily.
Judging from all the reboots, remakes and re-imaginings flooding the cinemas as of late, it would seem that Hollywood either thinks us moviegoers have terrible memories, or they're running low on ideas the latter seems more likely. This film is a remake of the much-beloved 1990 film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, which in turn was based on a book by revered science fiction author Phillip K Dick. The book's title? We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, which the filmmakers seem intent on making into reality. To add insult to injury, the studio behind this one is named... Original Film.
