I don't always agree with lwright, but I sympathize in his feelings for it. It's one of the greatest packages ever made (production design, special effects, costume design, film score), but there isn't much on the interior. And its many adherents cannot fail to notice that a whole lot of the up-and-coming film fans are bored stiff by it.
The original was a money-loser of mammoth proportions, and a primary investor, who put a ton of money in it when he could have made a fortune in other investments, held it hostage for decades. It might have enough fanatical devotees to support a sequel, but its leading lady is not exactly a box-office draw anymore, and Harrison? Maybe.
This could be Serenity all over again.
