  1. Beatriz Menezes Castro's rating of the film Watchmen

  2. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film Watchmen

    There is way too much in the film to really give a proper review in under a few hours. An intricate and accurate re-rendering of the graphic novel. Among the best films ever made, think Godfather or Indiana Jones level of quality.

  3. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Watchmen

    Pretty much perfect translation of the graphic novel. The extended version is even better.

  4. Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film Watchmen

    * 1/2 I'd like to quote from Matt Connolly: "If Watchmen’s opening credits carry an unexpected poignancy upon repeat viewing, it comes from the knowledge of how illusory their artistic promise ends up being."

  5. Z's rating of the film Watchmen

    I give it three stars because Zack Snyder did not fuck it up and at times almost adds to the narrative visually (opening title sequence). His achievement is dubious in that he seems intent on trying to turn the material into an action movie. The color scheme is wrong, not true to the graphic novel and neither is the ending. At least Snyder got it made with some of it's themes and ideas intact. Could have been worse.

  6. Anderesu's rating of the film Watchmen

    It's a great comic but sadly a very wrong adaptación.

  7. Superfrog's rating of the film Watchmen

    Poor in how so many way, becomes a parody of a parody, which could have turned into a good super hero flick but instead drags on. The drawn sections are pretty good except for the script. The rest is embarrassing to the extreme. On the plus side, it feels like this is not a delivery problem, the director wants to deliver something and pretty much manages, just that what they try to deliver is not palatable.

  8. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Watchmen

    One of those rare films that's both brilliant and awful at the same time. I can't decide if Snyder's direction is hindering or helping the film; sometimes I think he's sense of style helps the alienation effect of the rest but then those other bits have those flourishes as fell. A frustrating film.

  9. Elia Canevascini's rating of the film Watchmen

    Non bello quanto il fumetto, ma merita una chance.

  10. Claudia Negrea's rating of the film Watchmen

  11. Paolo Utili's rating of the film Watchmen

  12. thejslewis's rating of the film Watchmen

    Bringing Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ masterful graphic novel to the screen was no small task, but this ambitious yet faithful adaptation realized my wildest reveries. This epic morality play about superheroes (and the humans within them) positions a juvenile genre into deeper waters. The nominal ensemble was cast with considerable risk for some truly rewarding performances.

  13. ricardo ssj's rating of the film Watchmen

  14. Rowan Ah-See's rating of the film Watchmen

  15. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Watchmen

    An object lesson in the failings of attempting replication/reproduction from someone who seems to know exactly what's going on.

  16. Stefano Leone's rating of the film Watchmen

    Fight scenes are dull, overlong and inspire the existence of superpowers (punching through walls? gravity-defying jumps?) that completely betray the spirit of the source material. I can see why Snyder decided to avoid the Giant Squid ending but if "the Superman exists and is American" how can the whole premise work? Opening credits are spectacular, as some of the costumes and scenes coming straight out of the novel.

  17. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Watchmen

    Most of the film takes the visuals of the comic and Ctrl+V to the screen, but the massive variations from the source material are the ones that are either ultraviolent and pornographic... undermining the overarching moral of the tale, and making the story feel like a hollow shell of itself. I have no clue why people think this is so 'faithful' an adaptation when its core is so illogical.

  18. dyinguniverse's rating of the film Watchmen

    Ultimate cut is pure kinography, fam.

  19. Mariana Mara Nascimento's rating of the film Watchmen

    3.5 for the ultimate 215 min cut | while it preserved a significant part of the comic, it lacked some of the distressed and internal conflicts that made these characters not your typical superheros.

  20. panduabi's rating of the film Watchmen

  21. Andrew Sax's rating of the film Watchmen

    One more star only for the gorgeous Silk Spectre!

  22. ceknklsn's rating of the film Watchmen

  23. apriccot's rating of the film Watchmen

    Best comic book adaptation to film ever.
