1, 2, boredom is coming for you
Warning: a few spoilers ahead. It's just some details, nothing really
important, but read it at your own risk.
OK, to start with, I've not seen the original "A Nightmare Elm Street",
but I'm sure that I can say that it is extremely superior to this one.
The movie starts with the death of a guy, and after that, strange
things start to happen to his friends while they sleep. They all dream
with a weird guy with a burnt face, that chases them, probably, for
some blood. They try to discover why is this happening, and after
realizing the old man in the dream it's not kidding, they conclude that
if the person dies in the dream, she dies in real life. In the
beginning, the plot and the acting weren't that good, but it was even a
little enjoyable. You expect it will get better and, oh, surprise,
things get REALLY worse.
First, let's talk about the plot itself, and the characters. The story
is dull. Simply put, boring. You don't get hooked to it, and nothing
gets as intense as you would expect from a horror movie. Not even the
chase sequences or the nightmares are exciting, fun or scary. The
characters or, going straight to the point, the actors, are... uhm...
let's say, "below average", specially the protagonist, who just doesn't
seem to be the girl in the leading role. You just cannot relate to
them. In fact, you just hope for them to die as quickly as possible.
The acting is very bad, and the ones who are a little better die soon
in the movie. The rest of the cast are not even good to scream. Yeah,
it's that bad. And about Jackie Earle Haley, who is often a very good
actor, does not receive enough space or freedom to work on his Freddy
Krueger, thanks to the mediocre plot.
This Freddy just didn't work. He is not scary, he is not funny, he is
just as boring as the rest of the cast. I normally like villains in
horror movies, or just hate them, in a good way (when the portrayal of
the character is very well done, and makes you believe he is that
evil). But THIS Freddy is just empty, and ads nothing to this already
The soundtrack is not that bad, or good: it is obvious. That scary
music plays only when you already know the outcome of that scene,
making the scary level even lower.
So, I think this is it. This flick was a huge disappointment to me, who
was expecting something at least more entertaining or, at least, funny.
Instead, what we get is an extremely dull movie and, when it is over,
you'll have the feeling that its 95 minutes seemed like and entire
night of endless boredom..
fajfaj watch Transsiberian movie
its is so amaizing .
Puchaa watch Where Eagles Dare movie
Death stalks the dreams of several young adults to claim its revenge on the killing of Freddy Kruger. Chased and chastised by this finger-bladed demon, it is the awakening of old memories and the denials of a past of retribution that spurns this hellish vision of a dreamlike state and turns death into a nightmare reality..
rexx watch Pluto's Housewarming movie

Oh The Horror?
I saw this movie in the Redbox and had to see it. Of the reviews I've
read on this movie I haven't seen one that likes the changes and I have
to say that I agree completely with them. This is the first time I've
seen a Freddy Krueger that seemed to have downs syndrome. The live
Freddy was scarier than the dead one. When they decided to change
actors they killed this movie. No one will ever replace Robert Englund.
I do think there were a few things about this movie that made for an
improvement but they are overshadowed by the bad. I don't mind cgi but
even with cgi the kills seemed pretty lame. When I saw the original at
the age of 8 i couldn't sleep that night. When i saw this one i could
hardly stay awake. I didn't love every Freddy movie but they were at
least entertaining. This one was just frustrating. From the bad makeup
to the new "scary" voice and lets not forget about the lack of
personality in the new Krueger. This movie was a bust. I would not
recommend this movie to anyone, especially a fan of the original.
If you cant make a movie better than the original, leave it alone.
