I will agree that the opening sequence was amazing and had me really pumped for the movie. I loved Rorschack, and the complexity (or lack therof) of The Comedian. I also thought the movie was extremely aesthetically pleasing. Other than that, it was horrible. I guess I should have seen it coming from how "artsy" the intro was. I could tell who the killer was after the scene was shown, and was sure of it once more background info was given. My issues with the movie were:
Man junk: I understand staying true to graphic novels, or doing it for a certain effect, but would it have made the movie worse for him wearing the bronze "underwear" or whatever the whole movie? It takes nothing away artistically to do that. Do you think they could have gotten away with some blue chick walking around with her "meat curtains" hanging around all movie? No way. Forgetting Sarah Marshall wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be, but this movie made it look like a "G" rated movie.
Movie length: You could have cut out a big chunk and never missed a beat. Went to the 10:30 showing which began at 10:45 p.m. and got out at 1:30ish. Not too bad,... if it wasn't already putting everyone to sleep.
No constant "style" or "direction": The movie starts off "dark" and semi-"artsy." Then it switches to storytelling mode, then a small bit of action, back to artsy, back to too much storytelling, then to the corniest sex scene I've seen in a long time (complete with close-ups of the guy's ass as he thrusts into the woman,) back to too much storytelling, then action.... etc., etc., .... I like where the movie could have gone, but it didn't, it was all over the place.
I'll watch Daredevil before I'll watch this one again
