Who Watches The Watchmen? I Do!!!!

Last night I went to see Watchmen. The very fact that I went to the cinema speak volumes about how much I wanted to see this film as I usually avoid the place like the plague. Full of other people, sound usually wrong, sticky floors, too expensive etc etc.

Watchmen however was different. I had first read the book around 22 years ago and since then have read it many many times. It is the story of a bunch of dysfunctional ex-masked superheroes, only one of which has any superpowers, and how someone is killing them.

This film was pure genius. I would have never thought that they could successfully turn it into a film but they have done it.

If you want to see a very clever, intelligent film that just happens to be about superheroes, go and see this one.

Close enough to the original book to please the fan boys? - Check
Cool throw-away one liners? - Check
Extreme violence? - Check
Very sexy girl wearing latex? - Check

Looks like it ticks all the boxes. :-)

Close enough to the original book? Cool one liners? Extreme Violence? Sexy girl wearing rubber? If the book were 'Little House on the prairie' and the rubber was rubber gloves - it sounds just like another day at our house :)
