    This movie looks good but i miss the cast from the first film. They should have returned. While most of them shouldnt and some could easily be replaced such as cobra, The rest should be in the movie and sumhow, they arn't So we dont know if this is part2, or a stand alone., Even tho it brought parts of the first film, such as the president. But really.. i bet there wont be no mention of cover girl. scarlet, ridcard, breaker, gr.hawk, anna? lol
    Anyhow, this better be worth it other wise get Stephen Sommers back so he could bring back his roster.
