MOVIE REVIEW: WATCHMEN
I saw the movie Watchmen last night and I must tell you that I wasn’t disappointed.
The story begins with the murder of a member of the group of “Watchmen”. The Watchmen were some kind of masked vigilantes that were protecting the streets and helping America win wars and stuff but slowly their reputation faded and were no longer needed by the government.
The murder alerts the Watchmen who try to regroup and set out to find who the killer is. The story evolves and our heroes find themselves in a race against time to save the world.
This movie is no fairy tale. You will see people getting shot, arms chopped off, arm breaking, leg braking, skull opening, bodies burnt, eaten, disintegrated and splattered all over the place. Add rape and shooting dead a pregnant woman to that and you get the picture.
There were a few graphic sex scenes that were a welcome surprise for me. Malin Akerman steals the show with her tight body and long legs. I certainly googled her when I got back home…
By far the most impressive movie I have ever seen in terms of CGI. The scenery, the explosions, Dr Manhattan’s Character and the way action scenes are made are maybe the most expensive and complicated to date.
Some of them were a bit too much for me. If you are not a fan of the original Comic Book there is no need to worry. The movie spends a lot of time introducing each character and explaining their past. Nevertheless I couldn’t relate to any of them really and I found some of the dialogues long and cheesy.
A cinematic experience for those who love Science Fiction/Comic Book stories with the use of the latest 3D Computer Graphics.
If you didn’t enjoy movies such as X-Men, Spiderman, Sin City do not bother. This movie is not for you.
Malin Akerman is not the only super hero babe we are looking forward to see this year.
