I watched—for as long as I possibly could—and here's what I saw. There was some very good art direction, but also some surprisingly flat scenes. The dialogue is, in my opinion, pretty bad. There's no one I felt obliged to root for or against—which is probably part of the film's conceit—but who cares? Time magazine says the graphic novel is one of the past century's hundred best novels of any kind. Maybe so. But, for me, Watchmen the movie was an overhyped disappointment.
