Surprised nobody has posted about this yet. I didn't know much about the comic, until I pick it up the other day. I'm half-way through it, so far it is about the darkest comic I've ever read. Movie looks great though.

Yeah, I'll definitely rent this one when it comes out... an adult themed superhero story sounds good to me...

Almost tempted to see this one in theaters. But since I haven't seen a movie in the theater since "The Hulk" I think I'll wait until..Star.gif

I read the comic a couple of week ago, and I really enjoyed it. Great themes. According to some online previews (grain of salt please), sounds like they were pretty accurate to the comic. I'll be seeing it friday =)

This was the comic that got me into reading comic books in the first place. Rorschach is easily the best anti-hero in the medium. Been looking forward to this for a while, especially since Snyder got the go ahead to direct it. You probably won't miss too much by not seeing it theaters. The action in the story really isn't that elaborate or extravagent, so I can't see the spectacle of the movie being too large.

And if your going to see it in theaters, wait a few months for them to release the extended directors cut in theaters in June.

I'm wanting to go see it this weekend, but the director's cut is tempting clicking in at a whopping 220 minutes long. almost four hours long. The Regular version of the movie is long in itself at 163 minutes. I'll probably end up watching both of them.

saw it tonight pretty accurate to the Book, there were a few scenes that made me wonder if I was watching a Porno, the sex scene's IMO took away from the movie, and I don't need to keep seeing Dr. Manhattan's twigs and berries every 2 seconds, I mean it's the freaking movies you can't tell me that they couldn't have done some tricky photograph to keep me from seeing that.

This just looks like a "wait for rental" for me. I'm not into comic books at all (or "graphic novels" if you want to be a prick) and movies based off comic books, video games, etc etc are usually god awful.

We've been doing well on the comic book front lately, Mesmer lol. But yeah, I'm still waiting for that good video game adaptation to come out.

I generally like movies from Gaphic Novels or comics. The Crow was a very good graphic novel and a pretty good movie. (They could have kept the follow on Superman or Batman movies (Except the Dark Knight ones.)

Hellboy's and X-Men have been good. At least it's not a rehash of past movies or movies from old TV shows. (No more Charlie's Angels, Beverly Hillbillies, Maverick etc.)
