    Looks really really creepy... has anyone read the comic? I just saw the HD trailer for it and its very creepy looking.

    I think the movie would be better if instead of that masked guy it was the King from the Burger King comicals with his creepy head. NOW I would deff see that movie.

    I read the graphic novel several years ago. It was a pretty good story. Not sure how the movie is going to compare. The movie seems to focus more on the action than the governmental issues.

    I've no doubt it will be inferior to the comic (as all films based on Alan Moore's work have been). However, it has a great cast, and it looks quite visually interesting. It could be an alright movie. I remain cautiously optimistic.

    The comic book is a fantastic read. Highly recommended.

    The comic is an underrated classic. The movie looks like a pile of guff.

    The movie looks like it's going to be pretty cool. I was actually pretty bummed that it's being pushed back. I'd recommend the TPB to everyone.
