Watchmen

Saw this at midnight.

Not sure what to say about it.

If you're not a fan of the comic, you might not like this film. Rorschach steals the show, as one might expect. A lot of the actors needed to put something into the lines… reading the comic would have helped.

The sex scene is awkward and Snyder puts way too much fetish nonsense into the movie. Not really sure what his tone/theme was supposed to be, but he misread a lot of what makes this comic great.

I'd be interested in hearing what non-fans think.
