Those unfamiliar with the work may be completely bewildered, but stick with it -- this is a bold and uncompromising take on one of the genre's sacred cows that stands up to repeat viewings.

Maclean's Magazine

For such an epic spectacle, it's not burdened by a lot of clutter. It's intellectual complexity seems well-earned, not gratuitous. It's also visually stunning.

I truly wanted to love Watchmen, but I never warmed up to it and ended up only liking it in parts.

Undeniably, skilfully and wholeheartedly realized by Zack Snyder, the impossible now exists: Watchmen isn't just a movie, it's a great movie.

Snyder has done a good job of staying true to the source material.

Stop Smiling

Outside of Haley's turn as Rorschach, the cast generally flounders on a raft of exposition-heavy words bobbing in an uncaring sea of ambitious visuals.

Snyder's film is a breath-taking epic, a compelling thriller and an ensemble character piece, far beyond our expectations of the genre.

Deadspin

Watchmen really does work as a film, by staying loyal to the book while still jettisoning the least cinematic elements. Snyder has flaws as a director - big, serious, massive, obvious flaws - but he's working with a goldmine of material here.

Watchmen the movie provides ample evidence that more is more, but less might have been closer to Moore in spirit (that is, anarchic, witty and compelling).

Everything in Watchmen matters: there are no small characters, no false leads, no flab.

The fanboys who have seen the movie are raving about how faithful the film is to Alan Moore's vision - in fact, some have even suggested that what will annoy the notoriously testy writer the most is that the film actually improves on his ending...

If you haven't read the source material I think you're going to dislike it even more than I did. So yeah, it's sort of bad news around here.

This is not just a great superhero film, it's an important political debate.

Watchmen isn't the best super hero movie ever made, but taken on its own, it's good. Snyder and company might not have made it to the bleachers, but at least they aimed for them, and there is certainly virtue in that.

Hard to sit through, uneven but ambitious and inspired, and I don't want to see it again.

A magnificent attempt at Alan Moore's saga and a moving working of art...

The film is a ballsy, brainy, and thoroughly bloody examination of human nature, pop culture and 'the good old days' that never were.

Despite its flaws Watchmen is a stunning film that contains far more substance and intrigue than most comic book screen adaptations.
