    One of the finest superhero movies ever made. In fact, probably the only one that actually made me think and felt something else than pure entertainment. It just simply isn't your typical CGI-fest with Hugh Jackman flexing his muscles. In that sense, I can understand the criticism from some truly obnoxious people.

    And I have to applaud the fact that the movie tries to turn the tired superhero movie conventions around and do something different.

    (Review for Director's Cut): I can't help but think that this was the best possible adaptation of an "unfilmable" work. It looks and sounds great especially since actual panels from the book were used for the storyboards. But gone is the subtext and the deconstruction of the superhero genre replaced with an "R" superhero movie. Perhaps in ten years (maybe as little as five) this movie will finally get the appreciation it deserves once audiences finally reach their breaking point with the current wave of cape and mask films.

    This was released in a year when Marvel didn't have anything in theaters(!) and was still a few years away from assembling their cinematic universe, so the mainstream audience ignorance was understandable. If this movie came out today (or maybe next summer right after/before Marvel's Civil War), I feel that this would be the superhero movie to end the current onslaught on the movie theaters.

    A superhero movie without a big and hollywood final battle.
    A great point of view, I loved it.
