Visually: very well done, true to original source material.
Effects: cartoonish, but intentionally so. Works for the material.
Acting: over the top, again seemingly intentional. Also works for the material.
Story: Frank Miller, 'nuff said.
Pace: Slow in spots. Even the action sequences seemed a bit dragged out.
Stars: 3

Sweet, innocent Eagle - what are we to do?

Lets see, on a less trendy note - I'm watching the 'American Revolution' A&E series right now.  Its early, but its quality stuff.  Thus far tough, I'd have to say the 'Liberty!' PBS series may be better.  Less emphasis on battles and more on the revolutionary process and happenings.  Later volumes could change my mind though.

Better?

Would those be documentaries?  I don't watch tv much, either, but when I do, it's usually a documentary.  And, if so, much better. Cheesy
