User Review

In defense of Dylan Dog

Rating: 7/10


I've been waiting for this movie for many years and I've followed every
news about the production since 2007. I'm not a very obstinate fan of
"Dylan Dog" but I like it. In Italy "Dylan Dog" is a sort of religion
because in the late 80's early 90's every teenager have read at least
one episode of the comic book series. Now, this movie is slaughtered by
Italian critics and fan because of his "infidelity" against the comics:
in the movie there is no Groucho (DYD assistant), no inspector Bloch,
no London and that is enough to cause the terrible reaction of all
Italian fans. Obviously the greatest part of DYD fans decided to
suppress this movie months before it's coming in cinemas. I've seen
"Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" and I must say that it's a very funny movie,
with a good balance of horror/comedy/action parts. Brandon Routh is
able to play the part of "Nightmare's Investigator" and his character
is more faithful than what is said. For reasons of money it was
impossible to set the movie in London but the setting of New Orleans is
the best alternative option that director Kevin Munroe could do. For
the same reason there isn't Groucho, DYD assistant, but the character
of Marcus replaces him with no regrets. I think it's a miracle that an
American production company decided to make a film about an Italian
comic and I'm very glad for this decision and for the result because
I've seen in this project two very precious qualities, very important
to make a good adaptation: passion and respect. I'm waiting for a
sequel and I recommend to everyone to see this movie!
