I’ve never seen the original, and that’s probably a good thing. When the first (1973) version is portrayed by Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, the bar is set pretty high. I’ve also never read the book, so I approached this with a fresh eye. It’s a good story, and I’m a big fan of Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, The Lost City of Z) and Rami Malek (Jumanji, Mr. Robot), so it helped make the movie more enjoyable for me. It was an enjoyable experience, and while it might have been 10 minutes too long for my taste, I have no regrets.
