    Anyone seen this yet? Any opinions?

    Went and saw it on th eopening night. Thought it was bloody amazing, although so long impossible not to run to the toilet at one point. :D

    Really really want to go and see it, but it's been getting some pretty harsh reviews which worries me.

    Still... I think it's worth a trip to Star City's Gold Class :p

    I've heard a lot of people whinge because it wasn't exactly like the GN. But what is?

    For me, this was the most faithful adaptation I have seen, and the way they brought the characters to screen - especialyl Rorscharch - was amazing

    apart from the ending it was pretty much frame for frame the same as the novel (apparently, never read it all, my friends a watchmen nut though)

    Saw it at Imax last Friday, was very impressed with it! :)

    I read it about 15 years ago, so can't remember it too well, but the parts I do remember were literally lframe for frame and in some cases word for word.

    True, the ending is different, but for the purposes of a movie, I thought it was probably wise to go the way they did.

    I was impressed about the fact they did make it a very dark (and pretty damn violent!) movie, they didn't brak away from the bleakness of the GN.

    The best part is when Rorschach is keeping score.:D
