This movie was LONG. 3 hours, and most of the time it’s pacing was perfect. Except when it wasn’t. I had decided to start this movie at 11pm, so I finished it around 2am and I was pretty sleepy. This movie has a lot going on, and I probably would have felt very lost if I had not read the graphic novel (okay, okay, “comic book”).
