See the original!

I can only imagine that the positive reviewers here have not seen the original film. This version has squandered the perfect casting of Russell Crowe by twisting the storyline. Here, Bale's character is a bum dad - falling into that all-too-common trope with today's movies where kids know better than their dads. Completely different from the respectful father/child relationship in the original. Furthermore, they make Dan's son an important character with his own subplot, which is not only unnecessary, but degrading further to the Dan character. I was terribly disappointed. If this is the way to "update" this story, I'll embrace the "outdated" one - it's filled with strong morals and role models unlike this remake. Skip it - and find the original 1957 film with Glenn Ford and Van Heflin.
