After, admittedly, a dozen views, I'm pretty certain those who've picked up the comic are going to be pleased as punching with the Matthew Vaughn adaptation. From what the trailer shows, screenwriter Jane Goldman has stayed true to Millar's narrative and dialogue, not to mention Romita's fight scenes. Oh, and unlike some... other... Millar adaptations, there appear to be zero looms in this film, which is a very good sign.
Fans probably won't have a feel for just how violent the film will turn out until it arrives in theaters on April 16, but they've always got the series' concluding eighth issue to look forward to on December 9 via Marvel's Icon imprint.
