I picked this up at the library because I really enjoyed the movies. After reading through the comic, I can see the bits that the movie pulled and the bits that it changed. I did really enjoy the volume and the characters introduced. The villain storyline was a bit weak, but that's okay. The villain storyline isn't really the focus. Overall a very entertaining story.
