The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was, really, well, um ... decent. We watched this film on the first night of release in the theater. I must say it is a rather good adaptation of a graphic novel / comic book done by Alan Moore. The amazon.com link for this movie review will lead you to Volume #1 of this comic series. Unlike movies like Daredevil and even X-Men, I felt this movie succeeded in being a film all its own -- not just a repeat & rinse of a comic title. You witness a lot of action and nice effects, throughout the film, as well. None of the scenes would painfully linger on and on, unlike another recent film!

The ending sort of smacked of an upcoming sequel. I hate that. Although, what comic-based film does not attempt to lead itself into a second release? Not sure if I'd pick up this movie on DVD (even if it is difficult to resist buying, since Peta Wilson is in it...). I personally added the comic itself to my amazon.com wish list. So that says something good about the movie.
