I saw that a new TV series for this same story is coming out soon on USA Channel. I remembered I saw this movie and although the story is interesting it's not very believable, so if they actually make a full season of it it's probably not going to be that good since the movie was just okay.
I'm not sure how there are so many good reviews but I guess some people like boring DC comic movies with no action? Sure it is violent and not in the comic book way but more realistic which was a plus, but why couldn't they make a movie that was violent and action packed? By the halfway point in the movie I was sick and tired of Joaquin Phoenix laughing all of the time. He literally laughs throughout the entire film. I get it, he was mentally ill. But it got old fast. Joaquin Phoenix was okay, obviously Heath Ledger would have been better but may he rest in peace. I do think Phoenix did a decent job acting like a psychopath however. They still should have hired Christopher Nolan to direct the film, it would have been a blockbuster if he directed the film.
The movie was unique in the sense it was not your normal comic book movie which has never been done before. However, I judge films by whether or not I'd like to watch the movie again. I would not like to sit through this movie again, would not be worth my time.
It started off slow but it really picked up after they introduced the main little girl. It was a little different from how I remembered the Shining, but I was intrigued because I am a fan of "vampire" type of movies. And the main bad chick being very attractive helped a lot too.
Not worth the time wasted watching. There are some funny lines and good action sequences, but for the most part it's kinda boring. Think Mission Impossible with Deadpool humor.
