The NY review's not positive about the film, but it doesn't seem any higher on the original story (to the point of severely misinterpreting Moore's work), which casts some doubt on its credibility.
HUGE doubt to my mind. I'm willing to accept that the film might not be all that - although I really really hope I'm wrong, but this review is a complete joke.

Agreed. When I read it it's clear the reviewer seems to hate (or doesn't believe that it's possible) the very idea of a comic book, certainly the idea that a comic book could tell a complex story.

There are other reviews out there that don't like it, but at least they seem to understand the comic...or at least appreciate it.
