A Brief Review of "Watchmen"

Rorshak (1313)'s Journal: March 09, 2009.

Saw Watchmen this weekend. Enjoyed it. Nowhere near as good as graphic novel. Didn't expect it to be. Even cutting out subplots, still a long movie. Almost three hours. Might make more sense if familiar with novel. Good soundtrack. Actors fit roles well. Beautiful effects. Pretty good action scenes. Ending changed. Not bad. Considering original wouldn't have made sense without subplot. Biggest complaint is Ozymandias. Made less ambiguous. Minor, but it annoyed me. Overall, probably best that could be done. Even if bad, would have been worth seeing for my namesake.
