Watch this instead of the movie
17 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the blue-ray release of this comic first because I had heard the movie was full of plot holes and bad acting. They were right.

I watched all five and a half hours of this and was amazed at how well written it was. Every character was given a chance to get flushed out and become attached to. The alternative universe setting of a Nixon run America was a great idea.

Don't listen to complaints about the animation. This movie delivers exactly what it says in the title, a moving comic. If you watched the real movie and were confused and disappointed then I suggest you watch this and see the author's original vision.
