That looks funny, I don't think I'll be able to parse on this one.
I apologize in advance for everything I say on here. I regret it immediately after clicking post.

For better or for worse, it REALLY looks like the comic. I'm sure the action and tone will be different but it should be worth a watch. It is also going to confuse the heck out of critics, I mean the comic is half fight club and half spiderman.

Just wanted to say that I found some comic con clips that I'm not going to link to... because they are just like the comic. Swearing, Hit Girl chopping off limbs and the titular character getting his butt handed to him in the expected fashion.

I want to see this movie!
I also feel bad because I only heard of the comic early this year.

Just watched the new "Redband" trailer at Newsarama.com, which I'm not linking to. At first I was just looking forward to the flick. But now, I'm pretty darn excited for it.

From what i've heard, once they'd finished the film they couldn't find any companies to distribute it, as it was far too violent. It was only after the film started getting glowing receptions at small screenings that it got picked up. This is just hear-say though.

I saw it - Loved it - Did not know the source materiel before hand. Doesn't follow the story exactly

*edit* I also saw this at full Theater price and did not regret that and would even be willing to pay full price to see it again

This film was very well done.  Lots of Action, A lot of dimension.  Despite the chatter about the Hit Girl character this film is a must see for any age appropriate comic fan.  I am normally very critical of films like these, for the use of hyper violence and language, but despite that the film is very sweet and sentimental. 
At the end of the day all that matter is that I tried, right?

Just got home from watching it. And all I can say is "Wow". Movies drag here and there, scenes last longer than my ADD attention span can handle, but this kept my attention during the entire move. I had no idea that there was a comic for this, until now, when I saw this thread. Definitly something I want to check out now.  :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Well damn. I really wanted to see this but Carmike Cinemas (aka every movie theater in Auburn, LaGrange, Columbus) has a dispute with Lionsgate and isn't showing this movie. I'd have to drive an hour to Montgomery (which I do a lot to play cards, but not to see movies) to see it. I guess I'll wait and just rent it.

I really expected this movie to stink out loud, so I am really surprised at all of these positive reviews.  Color me curious.

She nearly stole every scene she was in "500 Days of Summer" last year so no surprise she stole the movie here.

I gotta say ditto to that.  I was pretty tired, and i didn't feel like drifting off at all...  I kinda did when i watched Solomon Kane last week.

I just saw this last night. It was really entertaining and funny, but it was spoiled by some a-hole who sat next to me and was basically one of those annoying commentator people.

"Oh man, that's HARD CORE!"
"I. WANT. that ROOM!"
"A bazooka?! Holy ****! LOL!"

and of course, repeating jokes seconds after they were said, thus making the jokes NOT funny to me. It was ****ing ridiculous. The text book definition of a d-bag. For me, the movie is forever tainted by that guy. :(

I just finished watching the movie and....WOW!  That was awesome!  Yet disturbing.   Is there going to be a video game related to this movie?  I hope not.  Using kids to kill don't bode well with me, however I really enjoyed the movie.

Yes, the movie has a game for Ipod touch/pad and PS3 (network). They came out in April.
