Actors’ words didn’t always sync perfectly with their lips, nobody even tried to capture room ambience to match the settings, and the lines often sounded dubbed — delivered as if into a microphone while reading hurriedly from a script, as they probably were. 90210 had more convincing acting.
The effects were great, but I couldn’t bring myself to care all that much. Really, nothing special, and, of course, drastically inferior to the original movies.
I’m planning to see it Tuesday night with my dad. I’m still holding out hope that my take is more in line with the many glowing reviews.
