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).

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.

Great book, mediocre adaptation.

Watchmen left me looking at the exit far more often than at the screen.

Zack Snyder's film version of Watchmen is a grim and grisly excursion into comic-book mythology.

[T]there are problems both with the tale, which was an awful lot more subversive 20 years ago than it is today, and the telling, which in contrast to Moore's radical experimentation is disappointingly staid and straightforward.

[An] obnoxious, bloated, ghastly piece of brightly colored pop trash.

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.

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.
