    Who's going to see this movie?

    I've got IMAX tickets for tomorrow and am really looking forward to it (absolutely loved the comic). Reviews seem to be all over the place with high praise down to boredom but I suppose that's expected since it adheres so closely to the source material.

    If you haven't read the comics you really should go get them before seeing the movie (it's only 12 issues or a trade paperback). Best graphic novel I've ever read.

    I am actually looking more forward to it the more I read it, Even considered getting the comics (There's the entire set from Barnes and Noble you can pick up) It has the entire saga.

    i saw it tuesday at a sneak peek. was a pretty good movie, but i can also see why the reviews say its boring. some spots seem to carry on for much longer then they should.

    I caught the first IMAX showing on Friday which was obviously filled with the die hard Watchmen fans who didn't make the Midnight screenings; I watched it with one guy who had read the comics and was highly skeptical of the movie living up to it and another who had no idea what the Watchmen was about.

    Anyway, I felt the movie was a perfect companion to the graphic novel but aside from the ending I don't believe it rised above its roots and I felt like I had seen this movie already just because it was so accurately reproducing the comic. Honestly, I feel like this movie is incomplete until we get to see Zack Snyders Director's Cut which will contain all the deleted stuff and flesh out some of the characters as well as the world around them. Part of me wishes I hadn't read the comic just so I could judge this movie on its own basis.

    The only thing all 3 of us who saw the movie could agree on was that Malin Ackerman is absolutely gorgeous.

    it was too long and at times it was a bit confusing. but, it all came together at the end of the movie.

    Overall, crap movie.

    The action was watered down by too much bullshit.
    The writing was really bad (especially dialogue)
    There was no reason to get attached to the characters
    All the plot points were not strong enough to carry the story

    The only enjoyable moments were when Rorshack was in prision and the comedian flashbacks.


    half way through the movie, I was pretty much like f*ck it. I don't care if everything gets nuked all the superheroes die Hookers take over the universe and the last few frames were focused in on the blue man's wang.

    The movie was so overhyped and filled with hollywood fluff bullshit to make it 2.5 hrs and at the same time it was trying to hold true to the fanboys with an overbearing and poorly written storyline.





    If you don't want to read all that above

    This movie is a waste of time, overhyped piece of cow shit.
