Sometimes-gruesome Watchmen extras best for fans.
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.
It's hard to rate this animated horror story on its own, since it has to be seen as part of the whole Watchmen film, where a kid is reading it as a comic and where it adds a certain depth, as pointless as it seems as first. The animation may look dated and basic at times, but the story and monologues (spoken by Gerard Butler) are wonderfully creepy and the solution to the story accordingly unsettling.
