Obviously you didn't "love" it as a kid since you decided to rent it again after not seeing it for a while. If the movie had that big of an impact on you then, you'd either have bought the film and/or seen it on a regular basis.

Don't worry, I'm not jumping on you there. Just an observation.

I saw it when it first came out (I was an adult), and I loved it. That feeling has never diminished.

If you get a chance, listen to the commentary. They tried making the film as close to the comic as possible, but also to do other things with the story & make it more cinematic.

The set designs, costumes, etc. were very well done. It had that gloomy atmosphere that became part of the story.

Same with the music. The soundtrack is great also. And some of those songs helped move the movie along.

But actually it is a revenge story. Not for him being killed, but rather because those guys not only killed Shelly, they also destroyed their future together. It is about love. The movie conveyed that message throughout the whole film & it did it well (I think).

Oh well.....just a difference of opinion.
