100% agree on your comments concerning the gn (obviously); and also thought the movie was pretty good. Usually I go into something like this expecting them to screw it up and just count the minutes until I'm sure. But I never felt that for this flick. I think they made the best movie we could expect them to make. That is to say, make a movie that reflects the gn while ensureing that half the audience doesn't leave the film crying for their mother. They made a film that would make money. You have the figure out the killer cliche, sort of love story, the comic side kick, and the sort of chase scene at the end. But interwoven is a great deal of texture that comes pretty close to some of the feelings and themes for the gn. The final killing came really close to the energy of issue 7. So all in all, they gave it a hell of a try.
