Watchmen - Review

I am a Watchmen fanatic. I just decided that it would be better to come right out and say it, get it out in the open. I first read the Graphic Novel (one of the most celebrated graphic novels of all time, by the way) when I was 14. In the years since then, I’ve read it many, many times. I find it to be one of the most creative, dark, intense, and beautiful works in the comic world. For years, I dreamed about the possibilities of seeing my beloved Watchmen come to life on the big screen. My heart nearly stopped with excitement upon hearing the news that Zack Snyder, the visionary director who brought to life 300. All seemed to be going well. Word was that there was a great script out there, and Snyder became such a big fan of the graphic novel that he was hell bent on staying true to the source material. Great news. Then, my heart nearly stopped again, during the whole “lawsuit fiasco,” which I will not get into here. It had been called “the movie that will never get made” because of all the failed attempts to bring it to life over the last 15-20 years. And with news of the lawsuit, I feared that the prophecy would hold true, that Watchmen would never come to be. But, by the grace of God, the lawsuit was settled and the film completed.
