Review: Watchmen

Really enjoyable

I wouldn't rank it as one of the best on either paper or film but the movie was way better than I expected.

I read the comics years ago so couldn't remember what happened until half-way through: the ending is still the weakest part of the whole story.

The sense of mystery in the paper version was largely lost because the movie spends a lot of time developing pathos and engagement with the characters. That works in Rorshach's favour as that character really has major impact.
