I'd rather watch this than a Samuel L Jackson version
I don't know about the rest of you but I thought for all it was a little campy and stuff it was fun to watch. Hasselhoff ha a reputation that precedes him in most his works but i thought he definitely looked the part. He was just about the exact spitting image of Fury in the comics and i've yet to see a marvel movie or series that truly shows an actor looking exactly like the character in the comics.
To be fair the film was made for TV and couldn't have benefited from a great budget but they still included the hellicarier, hydra and James bond like gadgets that made the character fun in the comics in the first place. I think it's unfair to compare it up against any of the big budget Spider-mans or x-mens because clearly this was intended as a pilot for a series and didn't have a great polish to it but why are comic fans getting so serious these days what happened to opening a comic book and just getting sucked into the fun and adventure.
Compared to what they're doing now in the ultimates with fury I think this ain't as bad as everyone says it is. What a cheap shot to draw a character to resemble a famous actor just in the hopes of roping them into maybe making a big budget live action movie. it makes me sick . The magic I remember as a kid of high adventures written and drawn by Stan lee and co seems lost forever. All it's about now is making cash by having 10 issue arcs that go nowhere but instead tarnish our beloved characters. I'm all for change and progression in comics but why change fury to be an African American simply for racial equality. What happened to creating new multi racial characters it all seems a bit pointless. But sorry I'm straying from my initial point. If you haven't seen it, try and give it a look. If you like it great if not then thats a shame because personally I'd rather watch this than a Samuel L Jackson version.
