I hear about the GN back it first came out and wonder what all the fuss was about, but I never got around to reading it. I was'nt sure if this would be any good as it was directed by the same guy who did 300. But it was to put it simply AWESOME.
Thankfully I knew better then to assume it was going to be your avarge super hero movie. As it turned out to be SO much better. The acting ranges from good enough (Malin Akerman/silk specter II) to give that guy an oscar NOW (Jackie Earle Haley/ Rorschach) Jeffrey Dean Morgan was also outstanding. I must also mention the amazeing score/music in the film. I thought it fitted in perfectly. I was very supprised to find out this was 2.5 hours long when i got home as it did'nt feel like it at all.
Anyone who found this boreing or is distracted by Dr manhatten nudity has a bad case of ADD or is 12.
PS the other best Best Graphic Novel/Comic book Film EVER was V for Vendetta, Both of these are VASTLY better then the dark snooze could ever hope to be.
