I just came back from the first showing of the first day that the movie “Watchmen” entered our minds and movie theaters (+10 nerd cred), and I think I liked it quite a bit.
I don’t want to force too much of my own oppinion into such a highly debated movie, so I’ll just say this: When transporting a book into film things will be taken out and things will be put in…I’ve accepted that unavoidable fact. This movie does a fantastic job of staying as true as possible to what the graphic novel means to everyone who’s read it over the years. The only people who will nit-pick it based on the source material are the worst kind of fanboy.
That said, the guy who played Rorschach, Jackie Earle Haley, was fucking awsome.
