Watchmen


I went into this movie with no knowledge of Watchmen and fairly low expectations.

Loved the opening fight scene...wow.
Visually impressive.
Morally inconsistent (in a disturbing way).
Intellectually Contradictory.
Multiple Ripoffs (nearly every character seemed to be a remake of another comic book hero).
Political Propaganda galore.

and lastly...it was a very slow and BORING movie. (Nearly 2 and a half hours long!)

Obviously a tremendous amount of work went into this thing and at times it had flashes of greatness, but was just too long and too slow to really enjoy. The contradictions, especially on the part of Dr. Manhattan's intelligence, among many others, was the biggest distraction and it kept popping up throughout the movie. This is not a movie for children.
