A solid improvement over the original yet the source material still retains its disadvantages. The editing is faultless, as is the sound design but I feel some more poorly acted scenes could have been removed such as the cliched and poorly acted/directed opening argument with the estranged wife. Removing this scene and cutting directly to Ben’s first night as a security guard would have added to the isolation and loneliness of the main character.

All the other scenes removed are done so for good reason. There is a cool extra called “Those Darn Mirrors” that breaks down the faults in logic of the original version. I also liked the colour correction, which brings a much needed coldness (and crispness) to the image. 8/10
