Anyone seen it yet? Good? (No spoilers please)

Going to see it tommorow, can't wait - there are so many things that could go wrong with this film but everything I've seen/read about it is positive, other than the whopping 3hr running time.

I haven't seen it but its already shit in my mind due to the terrible My Chemical Romance cover of Desolation Row that plays the film out. :down:

Oh my god, I hope this is a joke.

Saw it at a preview on Wednesday at the Vue, It's quite long. It does follow the novel closely which I have only just started reading if truth be told but I can see where the movie can lose you in parts. It's done well, Don't listen to those who have said theres not enough action and theres too much blabbing because thats nonsense.

Even before I started reading the novel just as a film on its own I don't think it misses anything out, it has alot in it and I thought though the ending seemed rushed it was neatly done.

By far best new film I have seen this year.

For some reason I'd never even heard of Watchmen before the hoo-ha about this film started. Is it worth reading (even a bit) of the graphic novels before seeing the film?

Yes. I started re-reading it last night and will go see the film after I think....it usually comes in a single graphic novel, it's a fair read, not the shortest graphic novel.

I finished reading it for the first time this morning and saw the film this afternoon.

Amazing!!

I do recommend reading it first though. I don't think I would have enjoyed it so much if I hadn't.

I love the book, and I must say I thought the film was excellent. Didn't hurt that the Silk Spectre was smoking hot either...

It was meant to be! I thought that the alternative American history montage at the start was just brilliant.

I'm so glad they used the 18 certificate to full effect.

I still can't get the sight of bone ripping through skin out my head. Beautiful!
