I saw it 3 times in the theater (twice in regular theater and once in $1.50). On Tuesday me and one of my roommates each bought a copy. Why? Because this movie is an instant classic. Yeah, it's based off a graphic novel, but it holds it's own. The message is wonderful as well as the acting. If you haven't seen this movie yet, I highly recommed it and you should check it out as soon as possible.
