This unnecessary remake offers none of the charm of the 1987 original, the updated music isn’t anything that special either and at over two hours long, really a bit of a slog to sit through.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, this unnecessary remake offers none of the charm of the 1987 original, the updated music isn’t anything that special either and at over two hours long, really a bit of a slog to sit through. This DVD release by Lionsgate has a couple throwaway featurettes but fine video and audio transfers.
