I have no clue as to how comic book enthusiasts took this movie, but as someone that isn't let me just say that I so love this movie. I've only seen it twice now (with plans to catch it tomorrow too) and both times I end up sitting in my seat pretty much in awe of the entire thing. The story is just told in a way that really appeals to me...quietly.
Most of M. Night Shyamalan's flicks are like that and why I'm a big fan of his movies, except for The Village. That one I can leave. It's a beautiful movie, but it bores me so badly I have yet to see the entire thing.
