I have read the novel actually....

Yes the ending was changed however all the themes presented in the novel's ending are maintained in the movie's. As I said, the movie is as faithful as it could be in the running time... and this isn't even counting the director's cut.

Compared to just about every comic to movie adaptation I have seen this stands out as being most faithful to the source material... hell it almost seems as though it was copied and pasted to film. This is not like V for Vendetta or anything...

Even though the ending was changed and some things were left out because of time constraints I feel it was an excellent adaptation.. can't wait for the extended version and Black Freighter dvds.
