| Far from the original
watched the original English version of Widows back in 1983 and thought it was exciting, so when this thing came on cable, I actually thought it was the original they were screening once again.

As it turned out it wasn't but I anyway sat through the thing feeling a little disappointed from the start.

The setting has changed from London to Boston, but otherwise the plot and the twists are the same, and it manages to keep a fairly good tempo (it is also a lot shorter than the original, which was 6 episodes of roughly 60 minutes).

Unfortunately the acting is nowhere near the original, which was one of the aspects that made it stand out - and justify the length, because you could get a feel for the main characters. This never happens in the American update, but it is still not half bad, primarily because of a decent story.

Conclusion: 5, but I prefer the original any day of the week.
