Im in two minds about this. Technically its very clever & looks impressive. BUT it has its limitations - some of the skin tones are ridiculous - Flash looks grey on some of the shots. Plus whatever AI they have used cant deal with fast moving action so the colours swing wildly during action scenes....

The reboot succeeded, partly down to its over colourising.


I think it is good some originals are touched up, removing the 'period ' cinematography from the product and confirming the original is timeless.
