Ok, the darkness of this movie is obviously the main problem for some people. It was dark when I saw it in the cinema, but I personally didn't have any gripes with it, I could still see what I needed to see. The reason the movie is so dark was the BS intention, they wanted the thing dark and moody. It ain't Pearls fault, he's amazing at his job, it's just what he was told to do. Whether it will be too dark in DVD awaits to be seen, but after seeing those screen caps the thing looks ridiculously dark. As in the verge of annoying.
