    Hmm…I agree that this film was not as bad as it could have been, but disagree that it improved on anything from the original.
    The child actors were more aware of their own performances, especially Chloe Moretz, who, so natural in "Kick Ass," was forcing her stillness here. The original included a sub-plot about other characters that expanded the film's world and showed another instance of people needing each other that mirrored the main story line but also felt like it was genuinely concerned with those other characters. The neighbors in this film and even Elias Koteas (about whose acting skill you are 100% correct) felt like devices.
    The direction, with the exception of the fine car sequence you mentioned, is uninspired, relying on close-up after close-up. The original had great long wide shots that established environment and the characters' isolation.
    I felt like this was a good film remade from a brilliant one.
