Watchmen

The Digital Fix
2 August 2009
  • Summary: Revisiting Watchmen on Blu-ray Disc was a true pleasure with the presentation here doing a great film the justice it deserves, allowing you to pick out fine details in a richly textured film whilst enjoying the ride it takes you on. As a film the comments I made in my theatrical review still stand, if anything the time that has since passed between reading the novel back in March and watching the film now makes some of (but not all of) the minor quibbles I had seem even...

Watchmen: Director's Cut

High-Def Digest
17 July 2009
  • Conclusion: After twenty years of hardcore fans hearing that the 'Watchmen' comics are "unfilmable", Zack Snyder defies logic and gives audiences the closest we'll ever come to experiencing the novel on film. In the 'Watchmen: Director's Cut', Snyder is allowed to flesh out the details better and create a smoother narrative flow, offering an improved vision of this alternate reality.

Watchmen (2009)

9 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Like Moore and Gibbons' original masterwork, Zack Snyder's Watchmen will never appeal to the masses as readily as films like The Dark Knight and Iron Man . However, it's a smart and faithful adaptation that challenges its viewers, pushes its fans, and makes the most of its every frame. Thankfully, Warner's 3-disc Blu-ray edition is just as rewarding.

Watchmen

Cinema Blend
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: To me it wouldn’t have mattered if it were bad or good. More important in a Watchmen movie is that it’s ambitious. That it tries to say something, to be something, even if it implodes amidst the struggle to achieve it. Better a spectacular failure than miserable, lukewarm mediocrity. Alan Moore’s amazing comic deserves, and gets better than tepid tap water dripped out of Hollywood’s rusty faucet.

Watchmen

Cinema Blend
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: There's a lot of audience excitement going into Watchmen , and not a lot of places for it to go once the movie starts. Apart from a few dark zingers from Rorschach and a handful of slo-mo high kicks, there's no real action or comedy that allows for audience release. Zack Snyder has brought us into the theater in order to contemplate dark things and big thoughts, but unlike Christopher Nolan before him, he's not throwing in a Mack truck flip to thrill us while we're...

Watchmen Review -1-

The 8th Circuit
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: [editor's note: due to the huge anticipation of the film adaptation of Watchmen, we have had 2 reviewers do separate reviews for the movie, part two can be found here ] Watchmen has long been anticipated by us here at the 8th . Hell, at least two of our writers (including myself) went to the midnight screening. So, was the movie worth the wait, did it live up to the fame and hype of the graphic novel, or did it flounder and ruin everything that the comic stood for?

Watchmen

AV Club
5 March 2009
  • Excerpt: In the mid-’80s, writer Alan Moore began to imagine a world in which the superheroes and costumed crime-fighters he’d grown up reading helped shape the Cold War decades that had repeatedly brought humanity to the brink of extinction. It wasn’t a better world. Behind their masks and glowing eyes, the heroes Moore conceived and created with artist Dave Gibbons were hindered, and occasionally crippled, by the same conflicting impulses, childhood traumas, and redirected...

Watchmen Movie Review

BigPictureBigSound
4 March 2009
  • Summary: That director Zack Snyder's vehemently faithful adaptation of Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel is as entertaining as it is counts as a monumental achievement. But that doesn't make it a great movie.
