Dylan Dog, 2011
About 10 minutes in to this movie, I turned to my viewing companion and said, “This has GOT to be adapted from a comic book.” And indeed, it’s based on an Italian comic series with the same name. I haven’t read the comic myself, but I can only imagine its better than this movie.
The movie tries, really. The idea of putting a hard boiled noir-style detective in a world with vampires and werewolves and zombies is pretty awesome. Unfortunately for Dylan Dog the movie, the script is terrible and the directing is amateur.
Also, this poster is terrible. (It’s the one used on Netflix, too.) It’s a movie with demons and murder and mystery and hot chicks in knife fights. Nothing against Brandon Routh, but an entire poster dedicated to him standing there looking curious sells exactly zero of these features.
In conclusion, Dylan Dog had great source material and pretty much everything else was mucked up. Skip the movie and read the comics.
