Have you ever seen the 1984 original with Patrick Swayze? The bad guys were the Russians in that one. It wasn't any more realistic than the remake.
It was a terrible remake. There were a lot of off-camera problems. The original enemy was China, but somebody realized that this may create a dicey situation with them. So, they changed it to North Korea...during filming. It was a sloppy production.
No I didn't see the 1984 original - I wouldn't have high expectations either!
The original worked in a sense that it reflect the cold-war paranoia of the time. The remake felt like they were trying to put together a action film without any real rhyme or reason. It was just...there as a vehicle for tom cruise's adopted son.
Other bad ones: showgirl - I never laughed so hard at a sex scene.
The X from outer space - so bad that they couldn't afford a real title.
House of the Dead - since when did Spring Break Florida look like Vancouver Island (also Ule Boll directs)
The director of Troll 2 truly believes he created a work of art that public is just starting to understand (he doesn't understand that fans love it for being campy), Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? The theme song is still stuck in my head.
