Stylistically brilliant. I love it.

The sex scenes are choice. The ending they had to make up for the movie was even good. And naysayers, let's face it: it's hard to sell the giant, fake, psychic space kraken to movie-goers.

Very little was left out. The only major thing would be all of the paperstand and the comic book.

I haven't read any of the comic books, so if I saw this movie would I enjoy it or would I not get it, and just sit in the theatre and ask "Who the hell is that guy?!"

Knowledge of the comics is preferable, but not entirely required. Some things will make you go "Huh?".

Does it feel really long? I don't know if I'll end up seeing it.

It felt long, at least that's what the people I took with me said. They'd never read the comic. I read it and have been used to seeing long movies lately (Taken, Benjamin Button), so it felt typical for me.

Now that I've sat on it for a day, I feel that it doesn't seem like the best story to make a movie out of. It's only the kind of suspense a book could have.

It's a good movie. I just don't think you could absorb something like the Watchmen in just three hours.

I recommend the movie and to read the comic if you haven't. Srsly good, but don't see the movie and then never read it.

It's just Watchmen. There's no 'the' in the title.

Forgive me, ass, but it feels very awkward. I'll augment my speech from here on out.

They mention the name in the movie, but not the comic. So it's kinda weird.

What are you talking about? They had that scene where the rioters spraypainted "who watches the watchmen?" on a wall during a flashback.

How do I tongue-in-cheek'd

Actually, though, the "Who watches the Watchmen" grafitti was always either never shown in full or left unfinished; neither crimefighting team was called "The Watchmen," and the only times in the comic that "watchmen" appears fully printed is in the title and chapter quotes.

I'm not bothered by it but all the serious fans of the comic I know are shitting their pants over the movie doing this. And pretty much the entire movie in general.

I don't get that, it's not like the comic itself will be changed or something. I liked the film adaptation of V For Vendetta because it was a good movie, in my opinion, regardless of how true it was to the comic. Same deal with this. If it's good, it's good. If it sucks... I'm lying. I will weep like a baby.

I've gone from extremely sceptical about the whole project to being excited about it. I think it will be a good movie, although it's impossible to capture everything there is in the comic book. Hope I won't be disappointed.

I had never read or heard of Watchmen when I first saw the previews and posters for this movie, and it took me about a month to realize that it wasn't a satire. Actually I'm still not really sure, because to me it still looks like a spoof of Mystery Men.

It is a sort of dark satire of the superhero genre.
