A History of Violence is the original book from where the movie was based. As with most things, I prefer the book. Edie calls Sheriff Frank Carney, who confronts the men and ran their names. The men are reveal to be mobsters with dangerous criminal records. All of them have "a long history of violence." But the mobsters haven't actually committed any crimes, and they are left alone. This lead to Carney questioning Tom as to whether they have anything against him. Tom denies of any wrongdoing and insists that he is not this Joey person the mobsters are looking for. In general I don't particularly enjoy graphic novels, but this is a story I admire. However, I feel that the book doesn't quite capture the devastatingly potent psychological effect Tom’s heroic act of violence has on him and his family members as well as the film does.

They always screw up comic movies, don't they?" : the initial reaction of John Wagner when he heard that his 1997 graphic novel A History of Violence was going to be adapted for cinema. Wagner's first instinct was to "take the money and run"– and it was only when he heard that David Cronenberg was attached to the project that his attitude changed. "I began to think they might for once come up with something good," he told Comics Nexus in May 2005 – a week before the film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. a suspect with a long history of violence; (2) the historical use of violence as a means of settling disputes, and (3) the innate violence of Darwinian evolution, in which better-adapted organisms replace those less able to cope. "I am a complete Darwinian", says Cronenberg, whose new film is in many ways about the survival of the fittest—at all costs. [14] The Pennsylvania-born, Scottish-raised Wagner – a living legend in the world of comics and graphic novels – was understandably wary after seeing what Hollywood did with his most famous creation, Judge Dredd. But events have shown that he was, to say the least, correct in revising his opinion. For this writer, A History of Violence is one of a tiny handful of the current decade's films to warrant the description 'masterpiece' (the others: Punch-Drunk Love, Elephant, United 93.)
