Our group of 6 went to see this on opening day, only 2 of us having read the source material. 5 of
us loved it and the 6th was only unhappy with the ending.
This movie was very faithfull to the graphic novel it is based upon(yes, I read it) and while there were some changes they were in keeping with the spirit of the original material.
The Bad reviews I have seen here object to the graphic nature of the movie both for violence and adult situations. However I must disagree.
Though this was a bloody movie, it was not excessive and was very much in keeping with the scenes in the book. In fact, I must say that it was less graphic than many episodes of "CSI" or "House".
As for the sex and nudity, these were also in the book and very authentic. I find that this was very much in keeping with the original art and not at all gratuitious. I believe it was tastefully done.
I will say that this is not for anyone under 17 and you should read the book before going if you are unsure.
