What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden The ambitious Watchmen is no disaster — like the heroes themselves it's merely flawed.
Niel Bekker Watchmen is perhaps one of the first truly worthwhile films in the post-Oscars pack.
Tomatometer Visually powerful, intense and uncompromising, Watchmen is an epic comic-book film whose technical and thematic strengths are tempered somewhat by its narrative shortcomings.
