Plot Outline:

Based on the graphic novel, Watchmen takes place in an alternate 1985, where costumed vigilantes have been outlawed except those working for the government. When a masked veteran is murdered, heroes unite to find the killer, but as the truth is revealed a far more sinister plot is uncovered. -- Chris Kavan

I really like Zack Snyder so I've been wanting to see this for years. I might have been expecting a little more, but Watchmen does not disappoint at all. It's not even close to being perfect, but it certainly has MANY good things going for it...

I never heard of The Watchmen until I watched this movie so I didn't know what to expect.I think it was a great movie.There are so many reasons why I think this movie was great if I named everything I'd be writing forever.The action, storyline, the colors, The Watchmen, etc, etc, etc. There are some comic book movies that suck but this isn't 1 of them

Who watches the Watchmen? I don't know, but I wish it hadn't been me. I HATE THIS MOVIE. It's pointless and silly and messy and confusing and the acting is terrible and I do not CARE if it follows the comic book loyally because it is a MOVIE and needs to hold up as a MOVIE and no I will not read the graphic novel and then say, "Oh yeah, the movie WAS great." Not many people have read the graphic novel, so the movie needs to make sense as if no one knows anything about the story.

The titles of the night.

'What happened to us?' a startled and confused Nite Owl II asks as he stands in the middle of the aftermath of the carnage that used to line the street. 'What happened to the American dream?'
Blake only chuckles, his mocking smile peering out from under his mask. 'The American dream? It came true! You're looking at it.'

Not all are admirers of Zack Snyder's work, but the ones that are rave about his supposed flawless visual style and method of storytelling in his visceral comic book film adaptations, which stay extremely close to the source material. And it seems I am having a good week, as I for the second time appreciate a film more after a second viewing.

What makes Watchmen fascinating is its devotion to the world it creates. It is directed (as I mentioned before) flawlessly by...

Pales Badly t

This is a review written within the larger perspective of the mythos of the Watchmen universe. On the surface, Watchmen is a visually-arresting, thrilling, and strikingly unique super hero film. Until you read the graphic novel source material and realize how vacantly short the film adaptation falls in terms of tone and theme. Watchmen nails a lot of the visuals and Zack Snyder has a kinetic way of choreographing action powerfully. (Though a lot of the film's best stills are ripped directly from the plates of the graphic novel; so a lot of the credit for the film's visuals is due to Alan Moore.) In content, however, the film struggles and doesn't quite know how to portray the novel's complicated and crucial themes of corruption, redemption, and postmodern responsibility in a decaying ...

"Watchmen" by Yojimbo

Based on the Alan Moore graphic novel, Watchmen is set in an alternate reality where costumed "heroes" were created as state-sanctioned vigilantes to fight the mob and who helped the US win the Vietnam war and get tricky Dicky elected for 5 successive terms as president. Another superhero movie with a difference it sticks firmly to the moral grey areas, showing these "heroes" as human and fallible; who is the more heroic, a violent sociopath obsessed with punishment through vengeance or an emotionally detached self-appointed guardian willing to sacrifice millions of lives for "the greater good"...? The core of the film is provided by charismatic anti-hero Rorschach's Noir style investigation into the murder of fascistic black ops hero The Comedian, set to the backdrop of a skewed history ...

I agree, it's not a film you can sit down and watch lightly, but I think it works well.  It's good to see an alternative Super Hero movie.  Rorschach is by far the best character, poor guy!

I'm not a big Comic book fan & I should've read the reviews before watching it, but I took a risk and watched it last night thinking it was going to be an action movie along the lines of Iron Man or The Dark Knight. But of course, I was wrong, to an extent. It is Rated R for good reason. Lots of nudity, sex scenes & violence, so definitely DO NOT take any kids in there. My favorite character was Rorschach who dealt my favorite line out of the whole movie saying "None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with me." You have to see it to see what I mean. But yeah, I have mixed feelings about it.

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly has a good cover story on the upcoming release, including a piece of information that shocked me: the "giant squid" is not in the movie in favor for something different. I'm avoiding Internet spoilers, but hmmm, I wonder if this different thing will have the same impact.
