    ★★★½

    Excellent first two acts let down by the poorly executed and conceived third.

    With a better conclusion this could have been a classic.

    ★★★★

    Better than the slightly chaotic original, and possessing some of the most novel and interesting ideas in all comic adaptations.

    Animation is the only way to satiate the generation raised by ones and zeros.

    4.5 - Jesus Fucking Christ.

    I have never fully understood awards for sound design and mixing. but the shoot-out on South Flower Street is the best argument for a total ban on assault weapon sales (to the general public) I have ever seen on film.

    In a period where every actor was going on boot camps to add veracity to their various projects, this must be the only time that the 'training' actually was manifested on screen.

    Brutal, crunchingly beautiful action which set the standard for such scenes, but has never yet been improved upon.

    This is like Dario Argento directing a Jodorowsky script. It celebrates diversity in a lurid yet somehow non-exploitative way but also works as a straight ahead monster genesis story a la Halloween.

    Loved it.
