I hadn’t read the comic and didn’t know much about this except that there was a sometimes giant naked blue man in it. After watching it I found that it is a bit about nuclear war and a bit about superheroes that all have some kind of problems. Compared to other superhero films it was long and slow paced. Even so I was never bored during it and liked the more adult aspects of the film compared to something like Spider Man. I was going to say it was more gory and more adult than most super hero films, but then I realised Kick Ass and The Dark Knight come close to the darkness of this one although Watchmen isn’t as good as those two.
