…was loosely based on a graphic comic novel by Mark Millar. You’re better off reading it than watching the movie; it’s more ballsy.
I’ve heard the film bears no resemblance to Mark Millar and JG Jones’ comic book. I can’t speak to that. I purposefully avoided reading it before seeing the movie knowing full well (thanks to the early buzz on it) that if I fell in love with Millar’s book then I’d be pissed when I saw the movie.
