A letdown Oct 6, 2003
I rushed to pick this up after seeing the movie, loving every second, and was happy to see the entire film being a one volume comic adaptation instead of a 4 part mini-series or something. After getting past the awesome cover, replicating the film's poster, I was happily surprised to see the art style being that of film-image duplication for the majority of the book. These panels were lifted right from the movie, which itself is rare with adaptations of this sort. However, some panels were overly scratchy and rough, the art style intended of course, but regardless it left a lot to be desired, especially in the slapdash way the final 20 minutes of the film were compressed to a page and a half in the comic.
Overall I'm still happy to have it, and I smile whenever I see the book, its just that I likely won't be reading it again for a very long time thanks to the artwork, which is a shame what with the adaptation being spot on with the film.
