So I don't spoil it for you guys, I'm just going to say it was really really good. I read the comic before the film and I'll say that they captured it better than I thought they would. You all should go see it this weekend.

Is this thread open spoilers, hidden spoilers, or no spoilers?
Just want to get it clear up front.

We went to see it last night, and I planned on posting a thread when I got access to a computer Smiley Well, here we are Smiley

The whole movie was quite a ride. From start to finish, it really keeps you hooked and guessing about what's going to happen next. A few of the scenes were a little disjunct and awkward, and I'm thinking to myself "Great, another cheesy superhero flick..." Then they do something completely twisted and, ultimately, cool, and rush my attention back into focus. And once the movie gets rolling, there's no stopping it.

Action packed and lots of Natalie Portman (with an English accent...? She's not Brittish is she? It sounded forced...anywho, shows what I know...). So yea, it's a very cool movie, but you have to pay close attention to what's going on if you want to follow the complex unfolding of the story.

Also, don't see this film if you have issues with excessive gore, homosexuality, and violence, etc. I don't think anyone here will, and I must admit their presentation of homosexuality was very tastefully done (myself being bisexual, I know how it is, and I thought it was very well done).

The film made me cry twice Smiley That's always impressive, but again I get teary in most well-done films whether it's meant to make you feel that way or not.

I'm getting very vehemently verbose, so verily, a viewing of this version is very much vindicated for your viewing velleity.

 :lol:

BTW, Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem, but I'm pretty sure she's American...ish.

I really want to see this movie!  It reminded me of the novel 1984, considering it's a totalitarian England.  Seemed interesting.

An IMDb user praising this "diverse" and "complex" music:
"Look at the incredible variety of themes he does - from Gladiator, a masterpiece, to Matchstick Men, a fun, jazzy style, then Pirates - a theme that moviegoers (however musically inclined they may be) will never forget. These scores are not only more diverse, but more complex as well."    :-\
