Yet another comic book adaptation!
Again it is based upon an Alan Moore comic book as is V for Vendetta! Weird thing is that he does not approve any of his novel adaptations, because he says they do not do justice to book. However, he has no right to them as he had written them while working for DC Comics.
In a gritty and alternate 1985 the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of the masked veterans is brutally murdered an investigation into the killer is initiated. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot.
Directed by Zack Snyder(300), this nearly 3 hour movie is visually striking. The story is very well switched from the novel to motion picture. This is not a classic superhero movie, actually it is mostly a dark, gory and complex tale of morality. One of the problems with this movie is only that it's complex narrative structure might not appeal to everyone. I have both seen it and read the comic book a few times. To some it may appear slow but towards the end it gets better.
here's the trailer:
I rate it 7.5/10
Worth a watch for sure! :)
(It is pretty graphic just so you know)
