The author writes:
Frank Miller's Holy Terror is a thinly-veiled Batman expy that's little more than an excuse to conduct unsubtle revenge fantasy against the people who conducted 9-11. What could've been a parable of the futility of fighting ideological concepts deteriorated into a blotchy incomprehensible widescreen rant of little re-readable quality. The fault comes from the failure of imagination of a man incapable of accepting a worldview that falls outside his noir sensibilities, and facing a threat that can't be resolved by simply punching terrorists in the face. Having fallen into ugly caricature and self-parody, Frank Miller could probably benefit from some creative editing of the text. Lord knows that humour is not his strong suit.
