I really loved the Watchmen film, and this DVD (as well as the Complete Motion Comic DVD) make for a really wonderful way to experience this extraordinary world.

It provides another angle on the Watchmen universe we might not otherwise get.

Buying this disc is a bit like buying a disc consisting of special features only! It all feels very slight . . .

I'm really glad that Tales from the Black Freighter was put into a medium that made me enjoy it. While it was my least favorite part of the comic, this is really a great cautionary tale/horror story. The animation is beautiful looking and matches the style perfectly. Gerard Butler's outrageous Scottish accent is perfect for something like an animated movie about a deranged Scottish sailor; who'd of thought? I also thought the retro "Under the Hood" tv special was really well done, especially for a glorified special feature. It really helps you get that sense of a believable world.

It wasn't bad. I enjoyed each of the separate parts but it just left me feeling somewhat...unsatisfied. The film and original graphic novel were of such high-quality, this often felt weaker by comparison. However, it is essential if you want to fully get the experience - the Tales of the Black Freighter were well done, and the Under the Hood was very funny at times.
