I haven't read the book but I saw the movie last night and really enjoyed it. Whilst fable-like in many respects (a style that has never appealed to me), it was also a gritty and enormously believable portrayal of a near future dystopia. And it always helps having Clive Owen on screen.

Also, sad gaming nerd that I am, I couldn't help but think of Half Life 2 a lot during this movie. Eat your heart out, City 17.
