    A brutal film - not overtly, no gore but at the end it sinks in what is done in war to win.

    Never seen the movie but know the plot of the novel. Apparently the plot was stripped down for them movie because the tones of the novel were a lot darker. Usual story!! Not sure about this one, critics haven't been too kind to it

    It was shortened, a film of the whole book would have been at least four hours long.
    There is very little violence and no gore in it.
    If you have read the book then you see the real story. If you haven't you have to watch carefully.

    I know the plot of the novel, obviously I'll post no spoilers. It'll be interesting to see how this is conveyed in the movie

    Agreed. It's a Mondo too and that means quality art.

    I'm with you...so nice to see a different art style on a steelbook. I love the Looper one and this looks as good.

    This is interesting indeed Mondo Gallery commissioned Martin Ansin's artwork for the print so its not really 'Mondo' art. Looks like he may have sold it off to the studios for steelbook artwork...

    Its not his best piece but still looks great, he's one of my favorite illustrators. Not a bad idea at all putting Mondo art onto a steel! At least the artwork has some originality and looks half decent but its personnel preference, you either like it or you don't... :)

    Not much obvious action, I think it works much better if you have read the book.

    Not sold on the film at all, only seen the trailer (which did nothing for me) and read some reviews on RT but it just looks like Teen sci-fi with tons of CGI, a lot of reviews say most of the time it's like you're watching some one play a computer game.

    Nice looking steelbook, a fan of that artwork style, but i doubt it'll end up in my collection.
