A Disappointing Continuation
At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
Each character in this movie — down to the smallest one — is an individual rather than a type, prone to spontaneous changes of mood and sometimes amusing outbursts of pettiness or ill humor.
Zack Snyder's Watchmen is an underrated movie and it is easy to see why it is loathed by some. Based on Alan Moore's hugely influential graphic novel which is incredibly multilayered just to bring the book to screen would seem an arduous task. Snyder brings his usual visual flair and the characters are given the best possible content that one can put in a feature film of a certain length. All the actors are very good and embody every character in the best way imaginable. The film is bleak and the morality of many of these "heroes" can be questioned on so many levels. Regardless of the general consensus I suggest you watch this film with an open mind and make your own judgement. This is a very good film in my opinion.

I like the characters, their complexities and dilemma. I would say I watch the DVD every couple of months. One of the more pleasing action-fantasy films out there.
Always problems filming a cult classic. Always. Purists will pop blood vessels. The ignorant will scratch their heads. I am a purist, the graphic novel blew me away. I also love this. Close to perfect.It captures the slime of the world in the comic. The depression, the sadness, the grim realism. As an adaptation, it is close to the oh so perfect Dredd. This is a work of beauty that the graphic novel lovers should not dismiss. Very, very, very good.
An interesting sort of a "through a glass darkly" look on the cold war! An amazing adaptation of the graphic novel, but no wonder screenplay is by Solid Snake himself(David Hayter). If the ending was left as it was in the book, this would have been PERFECT! Jackie Earle Haley is amazing as Rorschach, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan isn't far behind as the Comedian! The rest of the cast does a good job as well. The soundtrack is AMAZING! And the best opening credits sequence ever for sure! Seriously just check out the opening sequence if nothing else..
