i've read the manga, watched the anime, and now watched both movies.
if you are expecting a true adaptation of the manga (like what the anime should have been!), this isn't it. what this movie does is remove all of the awful stuff (mindless violence, nudity, awful character traits, gore, cursing) and crams it into a R rated movie.
if you're ok with that, then this movie is great. the director and read more set designer did an amazing job with recreating the hollow world of the manga. one minor complaint is that the characters weren't built up. kei is a complete turd in the manga (but not that much in the anime) and that's completely removed from the movie. characters seemed sorta hollow because of the lack of character development.
