I am not a comics reader, though I have always had a fondness for superheroes (Marvel > DC). I never read the original graphic novel but I most certainly will now. While it may have gone on a bit long, this was a wonderful film. Deep backgrounds on each character that I'm sure were glossed over compared to the book, but given the time restriction on films I thought they did pretty well. The fight scenes were wonderfully graphic, but did not try too hard to be shocking. Great story and a surprisingly dark ending. This is one of the better movies I have seen in a while. Though having never read the comic, I wonder what those who have thought. My neighbor has a copy and I intend to hit him up for it today. I look forward to an elaboration on backgrounds and more on ancillary characters.
