Very cool. I liked this movie in the theaters and thought it was underappreciated. With all the hoopla around comic-book translations to the big screen, I would have thought this movie would ahve grossed more.
Nevertheless, I will be picking up at least one of these DVDs whenever they come out.
I hope that they don't mean that you open it up and don't know if it's a limited edition or not. Distributed randomly probably means some retailers will get a few, but I just don't want the hassle of worrying about which one I'll get when I open it up.
Missed this one in theaters (too many movies at the same time), but I'm a fan of the comics, so I'll have to pick this one up. I like the sound of the Garth Ennis prequel comic, and if I can grab the "chase" cover, all the better (although as a comics fan, I've been a little desensitized and embittered against the whole multi-cover thing).
This movie reminded me a lot of the movie Payback with Mel Gibson in it. I am not a fan of the comic and knew almost nothing about it, so that could be why I liked the film. I think that if you dont have any expectations going into this, you'll come out pleased.
Man, this movie jsut didn't work for me, not as a guilty pleasure, or as a down and dirty '70s flick. It played more like a cliched '80s direct to video Robert Norton bore fest (which I usually like, but not this one.)
Except for "The Russian", which was so incredably kick ass, and true to the book, and for that sequence alone, I well buy this at the cheapest price I can find, probably previewed. It's too bad that the whole movie wasn't as rough as that part, which was one of the best fights I've seen in a movie in years. I'd be curious to hear a commentary.
