Watchmen

This city is afraid of me. I've seen its true face.


Watchmen
Set in an alternate-history 1985 in the USA, this comic book adaptation faithfully recreates the feel of the original. The lead character, now a retired SuperHero, must convince his ex team-mates, now also all middle-aged and retired, that he has uncovered a plot to murder the remaining superheroes — along with millions of innocent civilians. Even reunited, will the remnants of the Watchmen be enough to avert a global apocalypse? Note to the innocents: the film features plenty of violence and nudity. This is not a kiddies comic book adaptation.

Tomatometer quote iconVisually powerful, intense and uncompromising, Watchmen is an epic comic-book film whose technical and thematic strengths are tempered somewhat by its narrative shortcomings.
