Like all good literary adaptations it abridges and omits thoughtfully, shows not tells, and maintains the core themes and plot. The sexual violence may be too much for some viewers, but it is not torture porn; like the novel it gives you what you need to know without fetishizing it. A wonderful modern detective story that lovingly portrays the research and technology necessary to the chase.
It's slow and talky. The story is interesting, but I really was not in the right mindset for it when I watched it.
An interesting slice of life and representation of a community. It's a slow, meditative film that is worth the watch if you happen upon it. I can't say I may ever have a reason to need or want to watch it again though.
The plot is a nice change of pace for Astaire-Rogers pictures and it has some fantastic dance scenes, but the issues of control regarding Rogers's character will make any feminist uncomfortable.
A total comic book movie, as in the plot structure was right out of a comic book. Not as dark or deep as the original, but still not your average superhero movie. The cast is fabulous and plays their characters well, but Mickey Rourke seems to be too much himself, in a distracting bad way.
