After reading review like the one given by Tom Charity of CNN, "Fails to Connect", I decided to give another view or opinion on the movie.
Personally I was committed to watching this film several weeks ago after seeing the trailer on my AppleTV. They had me sold from the moment I saw World War II atmosphere mixed with beautiful women carrying automatic weapons. Ok I'm the typical simple male. But I know what I like. The movie didn't let me down, a little confusing at the beginning but an absolute beautiful stroke of paint on canvas. Mr. Snyder had total control of CG and film as they appear to fade between real and fantasy at the blink of an eye.
I cannot say enough about the artistic merit of this film, and as you reach the final moments of the film it seems to all make sense. Personally I loved the film, and several of the other people with me as well. I recommend that people take the time to see the movie and don't be swayed by the negative reviews that people are posting...I wasn't.
For those who enjoyed 300, Sin City, and Watchmen 'out of the box' style movies...grab a popcorn and pull up a seat this is going to be a great ride.
This movie is a definite Blu-ray purchase, well at least for me it is, but I'll let you be the judge.
Oh and BTW - Bring on the video game.
