Based on the trailer, it looks good.

The director said they stayed true to the novel, hence the 1 hour 40 minutes movie.

I would recommend reading the graphic novel first before watching the movie. Zack Snyder, in his desire to be as accurate as possible, incorporated most of the more memorable images from the comic into a 2 hours and 45 min. movie. It could get confusing for those who are not familiar with the plot. My girlfriend was already begging me to accept her reimbursement of the movie ticket just so we wouldn't finish the film. ;D

i think it was even more riveting than the original, in the same way that jaws the movie was better than jaws the book. malaki ang epekto nung visual element, yet it did not overwhelm the narrative nor the ethical dilemmas in the series' story arcs. great adaptation.
