The irony of the movies is that while some deserve reboots, others are best left untouched because they’re flawless in every way. It’s similar to gambling in that you have no idea what you’re up against. The goal is to keep viewers thinking about the original film while giving them something new to focus on. Accordingly, here is a list of the best action movie reboots we admire:
1) Action fan favorite – Mad Max: Fury Road
Although many action movie fans still consider 1979’s Mad Max starring Mel Gibson a legend, the 2015 reboot tops the original. Starring Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, the film’s protagonist, and a distinct feminist theme, it won over viewers around the world, including many who wouldn’t bother seeing a post-apocalyptic movie about automobiles. and weapons.
2) 3:10 to Yuma – The Lesser Known Hit Movie
While this film’s predecessor was a great thriller, the modern adaptation is significantly more digestible and ages better. While the plot is similar to the first, a penniless rancher is tasked with transporting a captive outlaw gangster to the train station in time for a 3:10 train ride to Yuma, the new one is notable for its game play. actor and his visuals. Both Christian Bale as the Rancher and Russell Crowe as the Outlaw are outstanding actors. The eerie portrayal of Ben Foster as Charlie Prince is probably the highlight of the film.
3) The remake of a remake – Rise of the Planet of the Apes
The Planet of the Apes prequel trilogy is fantastic. It tells how a highly infectious and dangerous virus sweeps the planet, forcing apes to become intellectuals and humans to revert to their primordial state. The remake is pretty close to the original in terms of quality, with great CGI and an amazing performance from Andy Serkis as Caesar. Sure, the dystopian aspects of the second and third films are thrilling, but seeing a monkey operating a tank is unparalleled.
4) Internal Affairs Adaptation – The Infiltrators
The Departed is a stylish and dramatic action film based on the Hong Kong blockbuster Internal Affairs. The American remake is very close to the original. However, it’s a far more engrossing examination of character, allegiance, and deception than the original can’t beat. Martin Scorsese’s slick direction and all-star cast, which includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg and Vera Farmiga, are responsible for that. All in all, this is one of the best movie remakes ever made.
5) The remake that nailed almost everything – Ocean’s 11
Recreating or restarting a movie is like reviving an old song. We must honor the original without rehashing it completely. Luckily, Steven Soderbergh and his team reached the golden point with the action movie Ocean’s Eleven in 2001. There’s a lot this movie gets right and so little gets wrong. It has everything from top acting to brilliant editing to a top-notch variation on the classic heist image. If you can get past the arrogance, you’ll find a fantastic crime drama with plenty of passion and humor.
