This is movie is definitely not for everyone and is rated M18 for good reason! Some may call it Artistic and Dark Themed and sitting through 2hrs 43mins of it is no easy feat if you were mentally drained before watching it. This adaptation of the comic book is breathtaking in parts, mentally stimulating in others and dreary in some.
Human nature leaning heavily towards the dark aspects of it, is explored in ‘Nightmarish’ sequences over at least four decades drawing close to an almost self fulfilling legacy of destruction and doom. One may see this movie as a twisted plot to portray what happens when man plays God without a moral conscience and that murder for the greater good is acceptable. Whilst others may see this movie simply as human nature allowing itself to manifest itself through morally challenged choices.
Well if you decide to watch it, perhaps you can share your keen insights of the movie with me. Although I have not read or seen this comic book, I must say that I was intrigued and rather enjoyed this movie’s adaptation. I can only imagine what a monumental task it must have been, to make this comic book come alive they way it did!
