Watchmen Directed by Zack Snyder

Saw Watchmen tonight, I wasn’t too impressed. I understand the differences between mediums and the need to adapt the source material – but I felt the movie lost some of the essential elements that I had most enjoyed. The graphic novel contained a lot of social commentary and psychological development of the characters which has been washed over; and more so, some of the most crucial dramatic scenes were spoiled by less then stellar acting. It wasn’t a horrible movie, just didn’t stand up to the graphic novel, which I had just read. If this movie had come out before Darkknight it would have been groundbreaking. I’m looking forward to the directors cut.
