I don't read comics. So I can't comment on how faithful this is. That being said, I liked it for what it was. It has some goofy action, some great jokes and an AMAZING cast. Seriously, AMAZING. That's really what holds it all together. Without Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Malkovich and on and on, it's just another mindless action movie. But with them, it's very fun. And I guess that's all that matters. Just don't think to much and I bet most people will enjoy it. 3.5 out of 5 OSNN Stars.
