Summary: Watchmen takes place in 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.
Excerpt: '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!
Summary: I watched this film for the first time and I was blown away by visual effects Zack Snyder and his team provide this film with and the powerful characters in this film. The story is very kool and it takes a lot of paying attention to get it. If you loved The Dark Knight then you may just like this!
Pros: Awesome, Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Excellent Special Effects, Great Cinematography, High Production Value, Talented Acting, Underrated
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The plot was good, but the way it was developed left me disappointed. The characters were not well-defined. In fact, on many occasions they were either boring or indifferent to me.
Summary: 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...
Summary: Watchmen is a halluzinogene, sharp and sterile adaption of the comics, which were regarded of being not filmable. But Zack Snyder's creation lives through the pain and insanity the fallen heroes are exposed to. It is probably the best film I have ever seen.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This was a very disappointing book-to-film portrayal. Not only do they include the only stupid element from the book (Jon's ability to see into the future which I fully expected them to keep) but they also changed some things for the worst.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: This is NOT a kid's movie! This is a dark, brooding graphic novel come to screen, and has thematic elements that will sail over the heads of any kids watching it. I saw it in theatres at the time of release and was stunned at the # of parents who brought pre-teens to it, apparently quite unaware...
Pros: Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Excellent Special Effects, High Production Value, Talented Acting

Summary: I wasn't sure what to expect from this motion comic. I bought it with The Ultimate cut edition of the live action film. When I first began to watch it I wasn't sure it was going to be very good.
