I admit that I had a lot of fun, too, but I felt that they kind of disrespected the show's original "wholesome" nature. What I loved about the show was the incorruptible nature of team: honor and justice above all else, even their own self-interests.
Not only was the movie hyper-sexualized, but it seemed to be more of a revenge tale rather than a story about protecting the innocent or even clearing their names. I understand modernizing the story and origins, but I didn't like how they changed the drive and focus of the characters.
I would gladly show my kids the classic TV show, but I would not let them watch this until they were much, much older... 26 years old.
Unfortunately, despite my enjoyment of the movie, I recall many of the special effects looking sub-par and I fear that they may stand out even more on "the small screen". Aside from that, I'm sure that the transfer will look excellent, but I'll probably wait for this one to hit the $15 and under bin.
