What really pickles me off is that they had all the storyboards down for a sequel to the book, Bruce Willis was going to be the older Rico and it was going to encompass the actual Mobile Infantry in their powered armor. From what I saw of it it looked really good, kind of dark and "heavy" future acion with actual substance - then the go and do Armagedon instead
What a waste of time that movie was, the only thing kewl about that movie was that we got to go to NASA and dive in the pool before they started shooting! The room they suck all the air out of to test their helmets is actually real by the way, it is as close to "empty" space you can get here on earth...
Enough rantings from me, have a good one!
