Watchmen. Meh.

I liked Rorschach. At least he had unbreakable morals. Unfortunately, he reminded me of Danny Bonaduce without his mask.

My biggest problem with the movie was they had a cast of virtual unknowns. This leaves someone who doesn't connect with the movie with nothing else to do. Apart from averting your eyes from giant, glowing blue peener. We saw this in IMax. -_-

I already knew I didn't care about the comic. It's been around a while and I've had no interest in reading it.

The main romance was boring and unconvincing. Night Owl/Dan just never did anything that convinced me he'd ever been a hero.

I think the other thing is that this should have been made twenty years ago. The plot wouldn't have felt so contrived and done before. It felt like they were trying to lead you on into something breath-taking, but by the time we got around to it you'd already seen that plot before. Kind of like trying to show someone Monty Python's Flying Circus. It's not as funny because people have now used these jokes in other things.

Overall, just meh.

I knew it wouldn't be that great when my brother - who bought the comic for my daughter claiming it would "change her view of comics forever" - reacted to me asking about the movie with "Um. It's OK". That's when I knew there was no way I was sitting in a theatre for over two hours trying to make myself enjoy this film.

I'll bet that Glowing IMax Peepee was a sight to behold (in a "OMG MY EYES MY EYES" way).
