I’ve never seen the original, so I can’t comment on how this remake compares, but I thought this was an excellent movie. Liev Schreiber was creepy, Denzel Washington was disturbed, and Meryl Streep was ruthless.
My friends and I debated the meaning of the ending… Did Denzel not hear the instructions correctly because the bell rang, or did Liev manage to use their spiritual connection to make Denzel kill Liev and Meryl rather than the newly elected president? I feel it must be the latter, but considering the strength of the brainwashing, it seems amazing that their spiritual connection could really be that strong. And did Liev mean for Denzel to kill both of them, or was that just a “happy” coincidence?
