Who Watched the WATCHMEN?

I didn't know much about WATCHMEN before watching it. I assumed that a 3-hour movie would be self-contained. I was wrong, the script is a mess. I had no idea what was going on the first two-thirds of the film. It started to come together in the final section, but by that point I had completely lost interest.

The cast was weird, there were not a lot of sympathetic characters, and the voice-over seemed to be deliberately designed to bore the shit out of the viewer.

The sound design was good, though.

I wanted to like this movie and I did because I was a fan of the hype. I read the graphic novel and enjoyed it a lot 15 years ago, so I wanted to like it. It is almost exactly like the book except for some minor alterations. I felt they should have taken creative liberty and made it an interesting movie and not be so sensitive about altering the content. It was a bore. Yup.
