Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: ... an incoherent blitz of noise, chintzy special effects and bargain-basement allegory. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: There's no suspense, no emotional involvement with the characters, and the cynical, sophomoric storytelling is confusing. – Andy Seiler, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A moodily malevolent, anything-goes revenge fantasy that relies more upon special visual and digitally animated effects for its intended appeal than any comics-derived sci-fier to date. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 12, 2010

Rotten: ... a nonstop bombardment that recalls Judge Dredd, but with better diction. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Apr 26, 2007

Great movie but not R-rated version

I love this movie and have seen it plenty of times to know the diffrence between the PG-13 version and the R rated version. Do not buy this movie if you are expecting more curse words and a little more raucher Violater(john liugezemo). All the scenes i watched with him are all dubbed over, like the PG-13 version. Itunes needs to fix this and upload the correct version of this movie.

This is movie is a must have!

Way ahead of its time and the effects were top notch! Great movie! Thumbs up!

An underrated classic.

This movie is good. Its got a bit of both horror and action, with a dark hero. Sure his back story is kinda' lame but this movie is an enjoyable expirience. For fans of the graphic novels/comic books, you may be offended by this movie and for fans of the cartoon this helps tie the stories together a bit more.
