Of Note: The script demanded that most of the male cast spend the majority of their screen time bare-chested, as per Frank Miller's original graphic novel. Therefore, in order to adequately present themselves as the most well-trained and marshalled fighting force of the time, the entire principal cast underwent a rigorous and varied training regime for 6 weeks prior to shooting.

Review by: Jason James
To me this film is one of the most anticipated films, I couldn't wait for it to come out. Most of the times films like that disappoint me. This was not like the rest. It was worth every second of hype. The problem was after waiting months to see this film, I then had to turn around and wait months to get the film on DVD. The one thing that I think was great was the fight scenes were filmed in a very cool way. They would slow to almost a stop then speed back up again to normal speed. I really liked this and wish that more films would use this in the fight scenes. They also did a great job capturing this from a graphic novel. This is a great movie, if you have not seen it yet you need to make it a priority. This movie is one of the rare films that can be watched multiple times without losing anything. I could continue to sing praises for this movie or you could just trust me and pick this one up.
