I went to see Watchmen last night. I’ve not read the graphic novel but I was aware of the plot, so maybe that changed how I saw the film a bit.

Have to say I didn’t come away thinking “Wow” but at the same time it was very different to anything I’d been to see at the cinema. Could it have been better? Maybe. Could it have been worse? Oh yeah, I’m sure if they did the usual thing of dumbing it down and removing violence/sex to try and appeal to the widest audience it would have been rubbish.

In the end I think it was definitely an experience and one that might be even better being watched on DVD where you don’t have the expectation of big screen impact and can treat it a little more like a graphic novel…
