I’d argue that you were influenced by having read the comic first. I felt it was more than a fighting film. There was clearly a very nuanced story about power and responsibility to use it. The flashbacks told the story in a subtle yet powerful way. The characters were amazingly well developed and the ending scene brilliant.
I understand that if I had read the comic first I would probably be let down. But I didn’t read the comic first and what I saw was a strong story that had just enough interspersed action to keep me from getting antsy in my seat.
