So as a comic book fan this was a film I was looking forward to this film for quite a while. I may have even been heard saying “best film of 2009” upon watching the trailer. It finally came out today (for those who live under a rock) and I watched it. Basically I thought it was great, it stayed very true to the comic book. It did have some aspects missing (the obvious one being tales of the black freighter but from what I hear we might get to see them) but overall it told The Watchmen story in a fantastic manner and what an epic story to hear. After all it was voted one of the hundred best books of all time ( yes books not comics,books). Now for all of those who had no clue to what The Watchmen was all about before you saw the poster. You too will most likely love this film, as I just stated it’s an epic story and the film does great putting it on to screen. Rightly so, it did take over 20 years getting it there. The visuals are stunning and the soundtrack fits…what’s another word for perfect because that’s the only way to describe it. I really recommend watching this. Although it probably isn’t the best film of the year. It’s definitely a great one that keeps you captured from start to finish and actually makes you think a lot unlike most other films in this genre.
