Article about the movie was in the Wall Street Journal last Friday. It stated the issue was the "running time" of the movie--over 120 minutes. The studio had them cut it back and they elected the boat scenes.

On the flip side, the original series wasn't all that boating involved. More shots of the sailboat than the Scarab.
Would be nice to have a boating version though. Sucks for the guys looking to see your boats in the movies.

Oh well.

I've seen several interviews by Fox and Farrel..Both always say they stayed away from the theme of the original....Which by the way is on the STELTH channel on DirecTv.

It usually comes down to the lead actors' demanding more "face" time ( translation: 'character development' ).

As soon as I saw who was cast in the leads, I knew it would suck.

We were looking forward to it but now I'm taking that $ 20 I would have spent & put it toward my gas bill in my boat
