We don't really do movie reviews here, so I'll simply say that I saw it last night, went into with reasonable expectations and was not disappointed, and I'm still chewing it over today. That's about the best I expect out of any film, so I suppose that counts as a two thumbs-up from me. That being said, it's clear the movie is acquiring something between a full-scale audience and a cult following, and that it's failure to deliver the big money studio execs are hoping for could signal a dark age for thoughtful and interesting comic book movies. Given the tripe that passes for good comic book movies these days (X-men? Spiderman? Please.) this would be a truly, truly unfortunate result.
