I really wanted to like this, but...,
This review is from: Watchmen (1-Disc) [DVD] (DVD)
Unfortunately it seems like (graphic novel writer) Alan Moore may have been right: the graphic novel IS the best format for this story and no other medium works quite as well. There are great things about this movie - every scene featuring Rorshach for example - but other times it just doesn't work quite as well. I'd read and loved the novel before-hand but I got the same feedback from people coming to the story fresh. Great in parts, slack in others and is only good and not the great movie it deserves to be.
