  Too Long of A Film

| | See all dale2389's reviews (85)

This film started off good and had a lot of potential.. I just got lost and bored and fed up half way... it was way too long for my liking, and the big blue naked guy was a big put off for me. The 18 cert was a good call, way too violent and graphic for children. There were some good scenes but I think it just got too complicated and lost somewhere that I just didn't enjoy it much.

  yawn.. complications

| | See all Ripplaydotcom's reviews (150)

was quite bored half way through, it went on 155 mins. the storyline didn't peice togeather well.

Don't let your kids watch this it is an 18 after all, I think the 18 rating is enough.

a few graphic arm and leg breaks, comic book violence at its worst.
oh and a big blue smurf that is a giant one minute and then human size the next as manhattan

  Rubbish

| | See all neoglow's reviews (10)

The film starts really really well, great soundtrack, great potential. But then around the time the smuf look-a-like superhero sits by himself on a distant planet with some time machine it just went really weird, really bad, really cornie, really quick with a terrible ending. Massively dissapointed. Gave it 2 stars and not 1 for one reason, the first quarter of the movie was quite good, the rest however was utter naff.

I find it funny that one reviewer said that the 18 cert is not good enough and there should have been a big sticker on the front. the 18cert is the highest we do in the uk so you think it would be a bit of a give-away as to what the films like. I guess its people like that that are leading us in to a nanny state. any way rant over. First time I watched the film I found it too long and not that gripping but since then i've seen it a few more time and it's really grown on me. I really like the films style and the soundtrack is really good. The story goes on a bit but there are some good characters in this and Im hoping they make a 2nd film. Well worth a watch!!

Found it boring,lost interest halfway through,didnt find the characters appealing enough,i just didnt like it,i would say try it first before you buy as you may like it,i did give it 1 star due to the overhyped reviews here on play.com which resulted in my total disappointment,but id say its boarderline on 3 star but i do wish the film makers had put a sticker on the front cover in bold capitals saying that "this is not suitable for young children" as the 18cert is not good enough as this film contains superhero sex and dogs eating children,something that doesnt go well together for a superhero movie in my opinion,not the best movie but worth a watch so that you can say that you have seen it.

  A Proper Adult Comic Book Movie

| | See all Rambo456's reviews (1259)

Watched this on, DVD as it did not appeal to me at all when released on Cinema. My expectations were pretty low.
Was badly put off by the Special Effects for the Blue Guy Mr Manhattan. It all just looked a bit tacky. Also the 2hr 30mins time didnt entice me.
But 10 mins into the Film and I was hooked. The story is fairly fast paced, and has a lot to say. The Acting is spot on and the Direction holds it altogether nicely.
The feel and setting of the 1980s is captured perfectly.
The story is VERY VIOLENT at times, sometimes justified and sometimes not so much.
My Review probably is not summing it up correctly, but I really Liked the Movie.
A Sequel seems unlikely, given the disappointment of the overall Box Office.
Special mention also has to go to the Brilliant selection of Music that goes with the move. One of the Best Soundtracks of the past Decade.

  SUPERHERO MOVIE FOR THE ADULTS

| | See all Jordanesq's reviews (8)

Its sensible on some level which is why hardened super hero movie fans will not appreciate it. This films focuses more on the complexities of the characters rather than their super hero abilities. Its a new take on the genre and most definately worth a watch.

  Worth the Watch

| | See all SomethingStellar's reviews (6)

This fantasy boasts a fantastic unravelling story and encapsulates a superb moody atmosphere. It is entertaining throughout and acted well. The characters are strong, interesting and emotive.

The storyline is without fault, never leaves you wanting and keeps you guessing. The action, although sporadic, is well executed and exciting.

The conclusion to the film is fulfilling and completes the story well. Every aspect of this prodution delivers and my only criticism would be that it is a tad longer than it needs to be and some periods tend to drag.

If you have the time set aside to watch this movie you will be rewarded.

  better than the dark knight

| | See all dannymilhouse's reviews (3)

read the comic novel. and it was just so different to anything else. the movie for me just lives up to the comic. zack snyder has been very respectful to the author. not tried to make it a no holds barred action flick with micheal bay cgi explosins. yes it does have alot cgi but they use that to tell a story. if you jsut looking for explosions and fight scens then this is not for you. But if you want to be entertained by great acting and great storytelling with a twist on the superhero genre this is for you. i recommend this to comic fans and non comic fan alike.

the comedian, dr. mahattan and Rorschach are played excellent
