My Take on The DVD
Though this movie is dubbed in English, the movie itself was a fun romp for all. What I loved most was how the movie did not give anything away. You really have no clue where the movie is going, which is really what half the fun is. The movie is beautifully done and the cinematography is simply stunning. On top of this there is some great acting in this as well. There is a ton of action throughout and the movie kept me engaged from beginning to end. In looking further into this movie, I have to say that I had no clue that the movie had a tie to a graphical novel series, but now in seeing this I looked further into this and the novels were great too. Overall, I was really impressed with the movie and the acting and you will be too!
