Speaking of the first film, I tried watching it the other day and (sadly) had to admit it comes across a bit lacking in depth. At least, that's the only way I can describe my feelings. Might be that the excitement has finally wore off or that I'm just now admitting that the movie is almost too fast-paced. Hopefully, JJ can slow things down this time and give us more story and less 'splosions. At this point, I just hope that it doesn't suck whenever it releases.
Well, it's a fine movie but it isn't one for the ages. As Abrams has worked together with Spielberg, somebody who also makes shallow movies but shallow movies that become classics, your hope might get fulfilled.
I personally view the studio's agenda, the success of the first movie and the writers as factors that speak against the second movie being more "meaty" and less "sugary".
