Best Remake I've Seen

I think it's a really great movie with drama, action, suspense, adventure. It has it all. 5 Star acting. And A+Directing. Even though the movie is a remake of a classic, I really enjoyed the new added scenes, scenarios, etc. No matter how the sorry it's told, I always cry at the end. Unlike Kong, Skull Island. That's all nother review. This movie is definer worth watching more than once.
