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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Intoxicante ejercicio visual que se aleja completamente de la cinta tradicional de superhéroes para adentrarse en el dilema moral de todo héroe que se sabe finalmente humano.

Buckets of gore, truckloads of angst, hot superhero sex, full-frontal radiation-monster nudity, soap opera machinations, pulp fiction voice-overs, weekend trips to Mars .. and enough back stories for the next half-dozen superhero movies.

Zack Snyder's direction is both strikingly beautiful--he and his crew obviously went to great pains to re-create the incredible art from the graphic novel--and strikingly brutal.

The brilliant writer of the comic books that this is based on, Alan Moore, is well known for bisexual characters (women mostly, of course), in his work.

Synder has achieved what many said was impossible; he has in-fact filmed the unfilmable, and arguably done so as well as anyone could have.
