Wasn’t it already a remake? And hasn’t it already been remade?
I think the original RED may have been one of those very unique comic-based movies where absolutely nobody cared that it departed from the source material quite a bit.

Original zombies, Bruce Willis’ hairline recedes four times, Batman versus Reagan, and more found footage.
This looks a LOT better than the first one. Helen Mirren is guaranteed to be a better Bruce Willis foe than whoever’s in Die Hard 5.
I could be wrong, but seems to me the appeal of Die Hard lay in the fact that John McClane got the shit beat out of him constantly, yet still kept coming back, not unlike Indiana Jones. Unfortunately, this new iteration is also imitating Indy in a different way – by introducing a charisma-vacuum of a son as franchise back-up in case the star ever decides to quit.
