Ignore the bad reviews I am a film buff and enjoy all types of films and this film easily ranks in my top 10 for its pure genius story line and action sequences and that's rare to get both perfect in one film. I can guarantee every comic book fan will have a headache trying to think who's more awesome between Batman and Rorschach.

Seriously this is one film you do not want to miss because its a classic and a truly epic film.

I had always heard of the watchmen Graphic novels since I was at school,but I had never read any ,so when the film came out on DVD,I thought I'd give it a go ,I thought it was great,just my sort of film and sense of humour,It's about an alternative world ,where superheros are commonplace, and worth geting for Silk Specrtre alone ! pretty violent at parts (well, I say pretty ,I mean, VERY ) "should have a big sticker on it ,saying not suitable for kids" !? derrrr ! 18 certificate ! (I know that was totaly childish but ,Christ !)

One of the best superhero movies I have seen for a while. The soundtrack fits perfectly with the movie. Very gory so dont watch this if you dont like movie blood!!!!.

  Brilliant

It seems like the poor ratings of this film are due to people expecting this to be an action packed superhero film, but they fail to look past the lack of action. Watchmen is an amazing break from the norm on the usual superhero no brainers with a more thriller style take on the superhero world. The actions rare, but makes up for it in quality. I just wish people could have seen past the superhero theme and given this the rating it deserved.

  Absolutely brilliant

I have to laugh at people talking about Spiderman and The Hulk when reviewing this film! This is a very good film that does NOT cater to children. It is clearly an adult film (hence the 18 certificate) so is NOT trying to be the average superhero film.

I'm not into comics or the stupid superhero films that are released these days, but I have to say that this film was amazing from start to finish. The acting, effects and production values were all top notch. It treated it's audience with utmost respect. And who can slate a movie with such a sexy female lead?

Overall, 10/10.

  no good

I watched this having heard many excellent reviews and went into it wit high expectations,but ended up massively dis-appointed.the plot is a good idea,but the film is poor.its very slow moving,the action wasnt enough and whatthere was was poor,for an action film id expect plenty of top notch actions.
as for the "bad guy" i guessed it the first time i saw the character,and only became more convinced as the film drew on.the film itself is also far to long.
if u like action hero filmsgive it a try,but personally,i thought it was to long and far to boring.

What can I say.I am not a fanboy of the graphic comic works. I watched this as a movie fan wanting to be entertained. So disappointing so very boring. It did start off well but frankly dullsville station was reached early doors. I ended up falling asleep so watched it again to see if I had missed a 'good bit'... there wern't any. Avoid unless you know what you are getting/fanboy etc etc

Having read the graphic novel I would say this was really well made, very true to the source material (word for word at times), I thought the cast was spot on, particularly Rorschach and the Comedian. It's not your typical 'superhero' movie, it's a bit deeper, more intelligent and quite gritty at times. I would definitley recommend it (and the graphic novel). It also has an awesome soundtrack!
