As with any self-respected remake, you take key premise and scenes and mirror them somewhat accurately, stamping your unique mark on them and providing some creative spin. But what Benny Chan did in addition to that, was to throw in lots of space, so much so that it doesn’t get confined to just a particular location, but uses a wide berth which is Hong Kong, from the highlands to the airport, as the playground of choice. While it runs longer than the original, you’d suspect that it either has repetitive scenes, or moments of monotony which would drag it out, since the original was quite compact with wall-to-wall action. Connected has none of that, and still maintains enough moments of thrills and spills, even for those who had watched the original and likely to guess the twists and turns.
