    Hitting it up tomorrow - can't wait to see how they pulled it off - have a lot of faith that it will work from the trailers alone.

    Uhhhhh... I watched it last night... Not a fan. Way too much slow motion, horrible music and it just dragged on. I wouldn't watch it again

    Just as with any comic book adaptation movie...one will appreciate it more if they've read/followed the comic book before having watched the movie version of it. Watchmen is no different.

    However the difference with Watchmen (compared to other comic-adapted movies) is that the storyline for it is supremely complex to be able to fit into a sub-three hour length movie adaptation. It's storyline isn't as 'simple' as Spiderman, X-Men, Superman, Iron Man, Hulk, Batman, etc. to recreate without doing some sort of injustice.

    I've been a comic book fan as long as I can remember; the Watchmen series was one of the most intense/complex/intelligent storylines I've read in a comic book series. I'm planning on watching the movie tonight; so what it may lack in providing every single detail in the storyline (to appeal to the commercial masses)...hopefully they'll make up for in visual pleasantry.

    I watched the HBO preview show last night and the people behind the movie said those who are fans of the graphic novel will not be disappointed. I'm about to take my 15 YO son and a bunch of his friends to see it. I'll be able to report back what that age group thinks about it, as well as me.

    I DID already see it. We sat around and waited for it to play at midnight. Save your money seriously. Or atleast go to a theatre thatll give your money back if you leave after the first half hour... This would all be fixed if they let people drink in theatres

    Ill be checking it out tonight, despite the negative comments, im still pumped for it. I found that others bad reviews turned out to be totally different from what i expected and received from the actual film.

    *no offense to anyone lol

    I thought it was good. That music backspace hated is from my youth, . It was long, but got a good sense of the alternate world they created. And Malin Akerman is pretty hot

    Thanks latinatwix I thought I was the only sane person left in this thread whew!

    I'm assuming Malin is the chick... What mid 30's? I wouldn't say hot either. They should have saved their money and got Katy Perry, or Amy Smart for the sex scenes. Woulda gone up a star in my books, but thatd still leave it at 2 outa 5 *'s

    According to everyone I know that saw Watchmen; Malin is pretty damn hot in the movie. As for the actual movie itself...I've heard an equal amount of mixed reviews. Since the majority of the people watching this movie have never read the comic book version of Watchmen; there are two things I recommend people to do before watching the movie...1.) Have low expectations for the movie before watching it. 2.) Read up on a synopsis of the jist of the storyline beforehand.

    Oh and I suppose adding a third point won't hurt...3.) re-align the perception of what is 'hot'. :P

    Ouch buddy But by realigning your perception of what is 'hot' you're actually agreeing with me right? You shouldn't have to change perceptions if she WAS hot... Sorry I just didn't find her overly attractive. Not bad but... No Paris Hilton by any means...

    I actually went to the movie with somebody who was a big fan before hand. I wasn't. But we both hated it. And you should never have to go into a movie with low expectations. It still won't make the movie worth watching. It'll just prepare you for a long *** three hours...

    Wow backspace, you seem to be taking it personally if someone disagrees with you; different people like different things, so Malin's too old for you, big deal. I don't remember asking anyone to tell me what I find hot.

    *warning* **spoiler**

    Just took my boys to see it... Hmm... what to say. When I was in jr high/high school, this was a very good graphic novel for the same reasons that made it a mediocre movie... very artsy, very introspective... I think it was kind of depressing as a movie in a way that the novel wasn't... Somehow hearing Rorschach's soliloquies and watching him die... just sucked more than reading it and looking at the well drawn pictures. My son asked why he had to die, and all I could say was that he would have been miserable a) lying about what happened and b) living in a world without bad guys to fight...

    This will be a classic in it's own way... it just... dunno. Not sure why I was disappointed. It had nothing to do with the quality of the film.
