From reading some reviews and blogs, a lot of people are coming away disappointed in the new A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET film. I am not one of those people. I am actually coming away pleasantly surprised at just how good this film is. I LOVE the original film, so wasn't expecting too much out of this "re-imaging", which was probably a good thing. My expectations were low, and my satisfaction after seeing the film was very high. As everyone knows by now, Jackie Earle Haley is the man in the striped sweater this go around, taking over the Freddy reigns from the original Freddy, Robert Englund. Jackie does a great job as Freddy, and really brings a fresh take to the character. Jackie plays Freddy with a much darker, serious vibe than Englund did, but don't worry, the new Freddy still has his famous one liners for you to enjoy. Except now when he says them, it is more creepy and sinister than just silly like the original Freddy.
Overall I loved this film and hope you will give it a chance if you haven't seen it yet. For those that have seen it already, please comment and tell us what you thought of the film!
