WATCHMEN – (7.5 / 10)

16 12 2009

I know, the movie seemed to be “so yesterday” but I just like to share my thoughts here.

Very tricky indeed.

Great twists and a moving plot.

And wow, steamy scenes, just when I thought I was watching something children could also watch. I even though at the beginning that this would be very similar to other superhero movies like “X-men” or “Superman”. But no, it maybe in the same bark but it eventually grew a branch of its own.

It’s about a team of masked vigilantes, wanting to do good for the society. Just like “Justice League”, only, more human. It highly involves dealing with relationships in a complex system and society.

The theme is definitely not shallow and you’ll have a lot of thinking going on while watching but I believe that this sort of setback could also be a reason why it’s so good. It makes you think . It makes you wonder. It makes you feel that you’re a part of the investigation. The only downside is at some point, I was more analyzing stuff rather than enjoying the movie itself, which is for me a little of a hassle.

The director really did a great job with the creative shots which were mostly moving. Vivid visuals and exciting fighting scenes could probably be it’s second best asset after only the plot. It’s got a brutal slack on killing and slashing and gorging and everything else violent which made me remember “Kill Bill” without the black-and-white effect.

All in all, I’ll give it a more than decent rating.

I’ve got a final question once you’ve watched. Will the end always justify the means? … 😉
