I hope they don't swap it for something shit, it actually makes the movie look badass, which parts of it were. I have a feeling ITNOTK-2 will be a little like DC.

Wow even Dolph wasn't fond of DC?
No wonder the proof is in the pudding as they say in the states.
The film is not without it merits though.

A fair review here that most Dolph fans can probably agree with

I'm even sure he ever saw the finished film, when I asked him (a couple of months after its release while visiting him on location for TE ) if he had seen it he replied with a laugh saying "I don't want to!"

The script for this film is probably only 40 pages.

Dolph seems to be going through the motions in this one.

The shooting script was 94 pages and rather fun to read for what it was.

I only have a hard copy.

By the way, your review says
paper-thin rehash of other films in the Nu Image cannon. In fact at times it looks as if this film is composed of stock footage from other Millennium films. A shot of a tank appearing from a snow covered base is used when the scene is taking place on a spring day is just one of the many odd inconsistencies.
As a matter of fact, the movie is edited from at least 7 other Nu Image/Millennium titles such as http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1182609/movieconnections (and it's not as if they didn't shoot enough original footage) :wink:
