t manages to capture much of the essence of the comics, it's beautifully shot, excellently choreographed action scenes, good performances, and deep and interesting characters. I still prefer the comic, but the movie is also very good.
It has excellent action scenes, an epic soundtrack, well-developed characters and plenty of exciting moments. However, I don't consider it as good as the rest of the fans do. It's just good and entertaining.
This film breaks out of the clichés of sports movies in which the American dream is extolled. It also has excellent performances (highlighting Hilary Swank's performance) and a very good direction by Clint Eastwood.
