The way this movie differs from its re-imagination has both positives and negatives.The movie tries to describe the plight of its characters verbally in this movie where as in Sorcerer its visual.
Prospero
The tension and suspense is palpable during the driving scenes, but what raises this movie to a whole other level is that it takes the time to familiarize the audience with these men.
