I loved it. Was a bit too long yeah but the story is still amazing!! I dont think that it would have been possible to go in depth into the characters like in the book because of time constraints but amazing no the less!

Hey you know I thought the same thing- seems like his face was melting off the whole time. Other than that, no complaints really.

I didnt like the annoying font size or colour of it.

It was awesome, just don't cry when it isn't exactly like the book. Every super geek walking out of the theater would rather complain about what was different than enjoy what was the same.

I've heard so many mixed reviews of this movie; I'm just going to see it when it comes out on DVD.


You know I thought the same thing but it was fun to see it on the big screen. I will ususally only see comic book/action movies in theaters.
#13
I saw it during the premiere, and my friends dressed up as rorshach(sp?) and the comedian respectively; twas a blast, and I definately reccomend it. I have been told that the movie was very faithful to the book (haven't read it yet; is on to-do list) so that's always a plus, and obviously some maturity is required for Dr. Manhattans scenes.

I couldn't stand it. It was boring and slow for the most part and in between there was just some pointless violence and uncomfortably long sex scenes. The whole story could have been done in an hour but they had to drag it out to three. I thought the acting was great however, but just the way it was pieced together, it just seemed nothing was happening to advance the story at all. And why couldn't Dr. Manhattan put on some damn pants?!
what a waste of a perfectly good sig.

Liked: Followed the book incredibly.
Disliked: Followed the book almost too much.

I think i'd have enjoyed the movie alot more if i hadn't read the book. The book is great, it's just knowing what was going to happen in the movie from reading it kind of detrected from the enjoyment.

Other then that it was a pretty good, solid movie. Can't wait for the DVD to come out.

Read the book. It even explains why Manhattan wont wear any clothes.

The Comedian is the man.

If by "man" you mean a raping piece of crap, yeah, I agree with you.

And why couldn't Dr. Manhattan put on some damn pants?!
He doesn't give a damn about what humans think of him anymore.

Honestly it's not even really a "super hero" movie. And i don't recommend watching it with you dad
I was watching this interview with Zack Snyder (The Director) and I thought it was funny how he said himself "This isn't really a super hero movie, if you try to fight one of these guys in an alley they WILL kill you."
The first thing that popped in my head was that alley fight with spider man where he threw a few punches and the thugs just got up and ran perfectly fine


I vote yes, it's an AMAZING movie

I thought that awkward handshake between Rorchasche and Nite Owl was brilliant.
They don't think it be like it is, but it do.
#24
I liked the movie, but

Even though sex scenes are enjoyable in some cases, I feel that they put too many in The Watchmen.

I saw the movie after much anticipation and I have to say that despite a rare amount of skepticism as to whever it was a possible adaptation, I really enjoyed it. It was mostly thorough and looked absolutely as It should! Despite being little shy of 3 hours in length the movie is exceptionally well paced and never once let my attention slip. Huge chunks of the dialogue and narration as supplied by the journal entries were word for word and recited with a degree of ability and a sense of value and importance that I'm sure even Mr Moore would be acceptant of!

That said there were things that have occured that I simply do not agree with. Now I appreciate that the level of character complexity could be exceedingly difficult to portray. For example the main issue that I took from the book is the whole question of moral ambiguity which was sort of addressed to a certain extent but far from a central theme!
However why change the ending? Now it was a subtle change I accept but why was Dr Manhattan fingered as the bomber instead of the beasty from outer space. The result is similair as a tool of unification but what purpose does this change fulfill? I would like to hear an explanation for this.

This film was so good that unless you have read the book I would not advise watching watchmen as you simply would not appreciate the grandiose scale that this movie has undertaken and very nearly accomplished!

This was rushed and probably lacking the desired flow and form etc but I n answer to the original post,.. YAY!

did any body else thank god they put underwear on dr manhattan when he was giant in vietnam? 10 foot blue penis may have been too much

But who cares.. i loved the film

They would have had to include all of the subplots relating to the construction of the beast. They made it a bomb for time's sake.

Kind of wish it was longer as to include some more things from the book. I thought Laurie and Jon's talk on Mars wasn't as good as the book, and the new ending absolutely sucked. Why blame Jon? Why is that better than the squid ending?


My #1 displeasure with the movie: everything that made Adrian so cool in the book....there was none of that in the movie. He was so confident and inspirational in the book. In the movie he was pretty queer
'never a victim,' the role model said,
bang-bang, the bad guy is dead,
always a rockstar on eMpty TV,
the lesson complete, now the child has needs.

I vote yay due to the excellent adaptation from print to film, who cares if Manhattan didn't have any pants? Watching it in IMAX made his balls even more EPIC!!!

Omg yes! When Nite Owl punched the guy's bone through his skin was another amazing part.


Good sex scenes too

Ever heard of a Caricature? The features are supposed to be exaggerated like that. The voice was spot on aswell.

...
There is constantly something happening that advances the story. Just because it's not blunt and obvious doesn't mean it's not happening.

As for the rest.
You just managed to completely miss the point of EVERYTHING. GG.

And the Dr. Manhattan thing is explained in the book. Go read it.

Why is the only thing people talk about when discussing the movie Dr. Manhattan's penis? It's an animated, blue penis. Get over it.

When I saw it most of the audience had some real issues with Lower Manhattan.
Some even walked out!
