Summary: The film is about a young bullied boy befriends a new neighbor who happens to be a vampire. This movie may not be as good as the original film but this movie was a bit slow but i liked this movie.
Summary: Most things that I wanted to say here is allready said by the other excellent reviewers here on this site. However I do want to share a couple of thoughts on this movie. This movie is put in the drama box, and I do agree to that, however I would absolutely not show this to or watch this movie together with children. The movie is slow paced, but for this one this is a good thing.
Excerpt: This is the American remake of the Swedish film "Let the Right One In". It is difficult to watch this and not compare the two films, they both stand out as great pieces of work and both are fine examples of the vampire genre movie that is firmly miles away from the Twilight type stories. (No sparkling vampires here) Kodi Smit Mcfee is wonderful as Owen, a twelve year old boy who is unmercifully teased and bullied at school.
Summary: Retains everything that made the Swedish film great. The only difference here that I didn't like was the obvious use of CG in two particular scenes. However, that is easily overlooked by the two lead kid actors, who really do make this movie feel more personal than the original. Because of this, I find it just slightly better than the Swedish version.
Summary: Setting is 1983, Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) gets bullied and meets Abby (Chloë Grace Moretz). Abby has a couple of victims including her dad Thomas (Richard Jenkins) who meets an accident. Owen eventually discovers the real nature of Abby. A police offer breaks in Owen’s place and is killed. The kids pick on Owen again led by Jimmy. The score and soundtrack were wonderful while its character build-up was splendid.
Summary: A great horror film that succeeds at being simultaneously scary and having a touching emotional story at its heart. My one caveat is that, of course, it's a remake of a foreign film, condensed for American audiences and, thus, not original. The film is certainly made with top-notch skill involved - from the acting, to the cinematographic/directing choices, to the subtle soundtrack.
Summary: This has to be 1 of the best vampire flicks I've ever seen & I HATE vampire flicks! If I had to choose, I'd pick this version over Let The Right One In any day.I couldn't really get into LTROI & it felt like just another vampire flick but LMI had my interest right from the start & this flick was WAY better
Summary: I am biased without completely trying to be, but it's just no remake can hold a candle to my beloved original Swedish version of this film. However, I think their attempt did it more justice than most remakes I have seen of movies I loved. I'm happy for that, the acting was decent, the cinematography was lovely like the Swedish one, it seemed to try a little more to be creepy/horror than the Swedish one did, but overall it was alright.
Excerpt: "Let Me In" is a thrilling drama which story revolves around a bullied boy, Owen, and his new neighbor, Abby- isn't a girl. Okay. I heard or watched somewhere that this movie was actually a front runner on Oscar2011 nominations for best picture. Well, I must say, this one deserves a nomination. =D At first, I thought it was kinda boring, until Abby (Chloe Moretz) came into the picture. It pulled me and got my interest that much.
