Sin -fully delightful (and violent) [8.4/10] – a City to visit.

24 May

This is probably the most faithful comic adaptation that will ever be made. It is, as far as I can tell, frame-for-frame, word-for-word, identical to the comic in almost every way possible.

you might notice that Nancy is topless in the comic version. wtf, Rodriguez?

Unfortunately, that isn’t necessarily a good thing. Comics and film are two completely different mediums with different strengths and weaknesses. Apparently this is a difficult concept for most people to grasp.

Dwight’s stuff could have filled a movie by itself. DTKF as the sequel?

Frank Miller’s dialogue always reads better than it sounds and should sometimes never be taken out of a comic [Robocop 3, I’m looking in your direction]. I think that quite a bit of the wooden noir-talk could have used some tweaking, but it wasn’t so bad that I wanted to stab my ears [Max Payne 2, I’m looking at you]. I also have to wonder how much better and more developed things would have been if they focused on one story [Marv!] instead of several. I liked the intensity of the violence in the film, but this kind of stuff was in comic books years ago. [!] And even though the women were tough and knew how to look after themselves something seemed “wrong” about their portrayal in the film. Nitpicks aside…the only real problems I had were the white blood and the swastika-shaped throwing star. Movies are rarely this good.

btw: Mickey Rourke was Marv. Completely.
