Watchmen

Zack Snyder directs this raw and disenchanting film based on acclaimed Alan Moore's graphic novel. It tells us the story about a group of superheroes that are part of everyday life in an alternate 1985 America.

    "I liked the book better (which I always do anyway) but that definitely doesn't make this movie bad by any definition of the word. I thought the movie was well directed and the acting was pretty good, but I just can't help myself from nit-picking all the differences I find throughout the book and in the movie. If you're like me and you constantly nit-pick all the differences between film and novel, I'd say just give the book a chance. If you haven't read the book, you'll probably enjoy the movie more."

    "The Watchmen comics were a thesis on the genre of superhero comics, but the movie had to look at the meaning of being hero because it couldn't use the theme of the comic. Still, it was quite engaging and this movie was really well made. More superhero movies should try to have the type of depth that Watchmen achieved."

    "There's something about superhero movies that just fascinate me. I like battles of good and evil, but also scenarios where the lines between good and evil aren't so clearly drawn. The movie Watchmen, adapted from a graphic novel, is just such a superhero movie. And not coincidentally, it's one of my favorites."

    "This movie is probably not a solution for DC movies even if it is a DC property. It does not exist in the same universe as the main DC heroes which is a little confusing for casual fans. DC movies should be Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Justice League.... or other characters from their shared universe."

    "Bringing Watchmen to the big screen was no easy task but with director Zack Snyder on board, this Dave Gibbons adaptation really brought the graphic novel to life. The movie has more of an authentic feel than any of his previous work, this is adaption is Dave Gibbons at his best."

    "This was an amazing superhero movie. It was probably the most faithful comic adaptation I have ever seen. That may be a turnoff for some people because it is long and sometimes slowly paced, but overall the imagery and characters were amazing. I loved this movie."

    "After being turned on to this graphic novel while I was in college, I couldn't wait when I heard there was going to be a film adaptation. It isn't perfect (what adaptation is?), but it certainly does the source material justice. In my collection now."

    "This movie was suprisingly close to the original source which was very refreshing. If you like most people today like the comic/suprehero genre today this movie and the graphic novel its based on are fantastic."

    "I was looking for DC movies and came across the Watchmen. It is an action-packed movie from a DC comic strip that was out in the 80's. If you're looking for DC movies, the Watchmen can definitely help."
