brilliant
29 January 2009 | by fonergSee all my reviews

It is something everyone should see. I don't understand why isn't it more advertised. I think this is as close to books as it ever will be.

The animation is fantastic. The production values a high. Just watch the very first scene where the camera zooms out from the comedian's badge.

Nothing is missing from the real watchmen experience. I will be honest I never liked comic books. Maybe because growing up I did not read just occasionally one or two. But if you are like me who appreciate style and great story but cannot be blown away by looking at small pictures in row, you are in for a treat.

A must see! A must experience! I think it is superior to the soon to be released movie. We will see. I will.
