Quick Watchmen Review
It was fine. It would have been even better, and possibly excellent, if someone had lopped 20 minutes from it. It wouldn’t have been difficult, since Zack Snyder let quite a few scenes drag a beat (or two, or four) longer than they needed to, possibly from a misplaced sense of textual obligation. Zack, dude, Alan Moore will hate you no matter what you do, and you’d’ve placated the fanboys with your DVD Director’s Cut. It wouldn’t have killed you to pick up the pace a snap or two for everyone who won’t angrily confront you at ComicCon. That said, it had its moments, mostly involving Rorschach, and Snyder and his screenwriters really did cram most of the graphic novel in there. It’s hard to complain.
