Watchmen was released on March 3, 2009 in theaters and is based on the 1986, 1987 miniseries written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons. Starring Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earl Haley. Watchmen is set in an alternate history in which superheroes are real and don’t exactly act as if they would in your average Marvel comic book, they are real people with real problems and they generally kill criminals, some have even been in wars. In 1977 the Keene act is passed and vigilantism is outlawed once again, and three of the heroes retire (Nite Owl II; Ozymandias; Silk Specter II); two are working with the government (Dr. Manhattan; The Comedian); and one does not retire of his own choice (Rorschach). The acting was very good on all of the members of the cast’s part, it felt like they all really cared and weren’t acting, it was like they really were their character, except for the actress who plays Silk Specter II. The effects are all really good and are believable, and the art in and of itself is amazing and some of the individual images are very close to those of the comic. This one is a must buy, at the least a rental.
