And what about the actual movie itself? It's visually beautiful, but doesn't it pale in comparison to the series anyway? Sometimes you just can't top the original.

Let's see the original had bad acting, cheesy love stories, horrible fake stunts with a few cool boating scenes. Sounds like the movie is very similar to me! Let's just hope the stunts are better!

Well I can tell you from my personal experience that these movies are tailored for the masses, these masses are what? Thats right, STUPID. All movies are test screened with everyday schmoos and then they are surveyed and screened and poked and prodded. They take all the info and homogenize the movie to make it have mass appeal. They don't get US, only US get US. We live for this chit, the masses live for all the superficial crap that is in movies today, the DVD will be cool, hell most of us have home theaters or at least surround sound so whatever, I think it's amazing they are even doing the damn thing

I will shake the dust off the "Scarface" DVD and be happy.

Jamie Fox and Tom Cruise are on my list of actors NOT to see.

I'd like to know what the hell else Don Jonson and Phillip Thomas has going in life that prevented them from staring in the movie. If a sequil is going to be successful, the original cast is mucho importante!

That sucks, I can understand that they found that they could not use less footage than planned, but wasn't one of the premise's that the cops were also racers.

I remember reading in one of the boat mags about the money and time that was spent rigging the MTI, and the Donzi so that footage could be shot from them.

Masses or not, I can't believe that several really cool race or boating shots would not have been good for the movie, there are so many cops and robbers in car chase scenes you would think this would have helped the movie standard apart from the others.

Very disappointing
