REVIEW: Watchmen

Leave a comment

watchmenThe Watchman, piece that most people will agree that is Alan Moore’s masterpiece. Everyone loves the Watchman comic/graphic novel/whatever you want to call it soooo much, except me. Personally I thought the Watchman kind of sucked, it was boring and the art was ok, but far from great. On to the film, we’ve got two side here it seems, people who love the movie and people who hated it. Recently the hated it side seems to be taking over, neither one of these sides seem to have all of the comic fans on its side, they seem to be split as well. Personally I liked the movie a lot, it was a million times more entertaining than the comic was, it was what a comic movie should be. It really felt like you were watching a comic book, the soundtrack left a bit to be desired but besides that it was greatness. Zack Snyder was back in the director’s chair. Previously he’s done other movies people seem to love or hate, 300 and the Dawn of the Dead remake, both of these I also like. Rumor’s were that Zack was trying to stick as closely to the source material as possible, throwing everything that was on the page onto the screen. I tend to believe this rumor as it seems to check out with that ended up being on screen. As far as the actors over all this area was great but Jeffrey Dean Morgan as The Comedian and Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach definitely stole the show. Normally comic movies you’d say if you like comics or if you don’t see this or don’t but I think this one appeals to a wider crowd. I’d say if you’ve got a few hours to burn check it out, you might end up love or hating it.
