1. Who watches the Watchmen?

This movie is an adaptation
of a comic-book WATCHMEN directed by Zack Snyder.

PLOT : " WATCHMEN is a group of masked heroes in America who fight crime but are later banned by the government,trouble starts when one of them is killed and the investigation grows suspicious which reunites the super-heroes to seek out the motive for the murder "

Well i went into the movie with great expectations after seeing the ratings and reviews .The movie started off really well with a fight scene picturised superbly "Don't miss out this scene " . The camerawork of this movie is awesome throughout which captures the mood aptly.

The movie is set in the backdrop of the 80's during the period of the cold war where world is in the brink of nuclear catastrophe.The special effects are of top notch with mesmerizing music.If you haven't read the comic like me you should engage yourself with every scene of the movie and shouldn't blame the movie for so many flashbacks for each character,the flashbacks also form the central core of the screenplay.

The actors have performed well especially the character played by Rorschach,stunts are really cool so are the costumes for all the characters but animal lovers wont be having a good liking for the movie.Special mention has to given for the make-up who resembled many personalities like Richard Nixon,Fidel Castro and pulled it off with panache.

The story itself is a pretty straightforward mystery , inside of that, there a huge plot that has international intrigue and a super-villain and everything you want from a superhero story.

Most of the people who actually read the book thought that it was unfilmable but kudos to the director as reviews by people who have read the book are clearly a testament for his accomplishment.

Fans and those previously unfamiliar with Watchmen should go in with an open mind. Snyder has performed what Doctor Manhattan might deem a miracle, so it may take more than one viewing to truly appreciate this unique adaptation.

Even though the movie runs for 160 odd mins i had a good time of it with getting my money worth.With successful movies like "DAWN OF THE DEAD" & "300" to his credit Synder has not disapponted his fans like me.

Remember the fact that its not easy to adapt such a hugely successful comic on screen but Zack Snyder has proved himself once again.His previous two movies have also been remakes and won him rave reviews and also did the numbers in the box office.

Be warned, those expecting a Ironman or Dark knight kind of superhero movies will be very much disappointed because this movie explores an alternative and bold type of screenplay like just imagine a serial killer type of movie with a superheroes being murdered !!!

  • Rating : "A"

P.S : This movie has been given a "A" rating but i still can't understand how certain scenes made out through the scissors of the indian censor board especially the scene where Patrick Wilson[Nite Owl] and Malin Akerman[Silk Spectre] make love to each other.
