the movie is a lot different, the first couple of episodes a lot of the scenes they used from the movie, like Pope carrying Nikki, the whole premise of how everything starts because Jays mother Ods etc. but Smurf is no bad arse in the movie at all it's the brothers that are really in charge,
I won't give away any spoilers in case you want to see the movie, but you will find a few deaths happen early on quick ion characters that are still in the show now. but I recommend you watch the movie, I am Australian so it was good to see a Aussie movie get recognized and then a TV series off it.
Thanks I watched the trailer and it looks good and it's on Amazon. So I will be watching. The mother in the movie is played by the mother in silver lining playbook. I love that movie and she is a good actress
