Friend of mine bought this for a few bucks at a second-hand hand store the other night so we sat down and watched it together last night. Now, I'm not too much a fan of the character (this particular genre/type of hero/anti-hero/comic character doesn't much appeal to me) and I've seen the 1990s Stallone movie which.... Well the less said the better. (Though I'm curious now to give it another look.) Anyway, I really enjoyed this new Carl Urban movie and take on the character/world. Interesting premise and story and good use of a female character/hero without exactly making her pure eye candy. Overall I liked the movie and thought it was good fun, shame the movie apparently wasn't too much of a financial success making a sequel unlikely.
