Finally, it is here. After reading all the buzz on line and refreshing the memory by watching the motion comics, I finally got to see the movie version of the "Watchmen". Of course, the lousy rainy, snowy, and cold weather outside did help make more people go to see the movie. The first positive thing I would say about the movie is the incredible works that the screen writer and the director did. I cannot believe that they almost pack all the important details in the movie! If you have read the comics, you would appreciate the good works the movie does by organizing the complicated characters and plots into a 2 and a half hour of movie. And they did such a good job that even the people who have not read the comics should be able to follow it without problems.
Since "Watchmen" is more like a murder mystery with all the "batman" super heroes as the main characters, it is not the easiest movie to understand. It is not one of those no-brain summer explosion X-men kind of movies. By saying so, it does not mean that the special effects in this movie are not good. As the matter of the facts, the special effects are amazing and I specially like the way the change the look of the glass castle on the Mars. Anyway, it is definitely a movie worth of watching. The only warnings are the male front nudity of Dr. Manhattan and the graphic violence of broken body parts. Not a movie for kids.
