If Watchmen doesn't earn comic-book movies the utmost respect, nothing ever will.
November 4, 2019
The essence of what made [Alan] Moore's tale a work of genius is up on the screen for all to see, and it looks phenomenal.
August 29, 2019
The world is ready for Watchmen, and I'll certainly be lining up to watch the Watchmen again.
July 23, 2019
When given a great story and told that his job is to simply adapt it, Snyder more than rises to the occasion.
June 6, 2019
[An] obnoxious, bloated, ghastly piece of brightly colored pop trash.
May 16, 2019
For the most part, Watchmen is an engrossing and very adult entry into the comic book genre.
November 4, 2018
Even with [its] failings, Watchmen is still atmospheric and entertaining.
November 1, 2018
The failure of this very faithful adaptation highlights the fact that to capture the spirit of a comic book, a film must do more than bring a collection of still frames to life.
October 26, 2018
You pay for the inventive frontloading, however. Most of the rest of the movie stretches out like the Gobi Desert, one hell of a plod between oases.
September 18, 2017
The only way to truly adhere to Alan Moore's vision of Watchmen would be to not make the movie in the first place.
September 12, 2017
Watchmen isn't your typical caper flick filled with kickass effects and gunfire and no premise.
September 8, 2017
[Zack] Snyder's Watchmen is mechanical, heartless and, tragically, hollow.
August 31, 2016
A remarkable film, in many respects.
June 10, 2014
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.
June 10, 2014
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.
June 10, 2014
I truly wanted to love Watchmen, but I never warmed up to it and ended up only liking it in parts.
June 10, 2014
Undeniably, skilfully and wholeheartedly realized by Zack Snyder, the impossible now exists: Watchmen isn't just a movie, it's a great movie.
June 10, 2014
Snyder has done a good job of staying true to the source material.
February 17, 2014
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.
July 16, 2013
Snyder's film is a breath-taking epic, a compelling thriller and an ensemble character piece, far beyond our expectations of the genre.
