I enjoyed it quite a bit.
As a fan of the comic I’d say it hit about 90% of the points it needed to. Not a perfect adaptation, but true to the spirit of the book, for the most part.
What I find interesting is the Christian attack on the scene where the TV show host (his name escapes me at the moment) has Evey in his basement, and she asks him why he has a copy of the Koran, he replies “For the beautiful imagery”.
They cry out, why give false praise to the Koran, with no mention of the Bible? They must be liberal lefty whack-jobs who hate Christianity. (this is only a subtly re-worded combination of comments from two different people).
Well, the obvious answer is that the society shown is an extrapolation of Britain, where I’m reasonably sure that Christianity is the dominant religion. In such a society, the Bible would not be a banned book, but the Koran could very well be.
Hence, no need for Evey to go out of her way to ask about the Bible, because nobody in this fictional society would be dragged off to a secret prison for owning a Bible.
This is also labeled as the bashing of Christians, because a largely Christian nation is being shown as being brutally oppressive.
Poppycock! The society shown is not oppressive because it’s Christian. It’s oppressive because it’s being run by oppressive people. The reason that it’s a Christian society is because Britian is currently largely a Christian society.
Anyway, glad to get that off my chest in a hopefully mostly sympathetic arena.
