Why watchmen is the greatest cbm ever
You know it
Watchmen had such directors as Terry Gilliam going through it at times but after years and years the prefect one came. Everybody had their mind blowen by 300 and WB was inpressed too. Zach Snyder was anounced as director on June 23 and production began for the best cbm ever.
The first thing I will praise is the directing. The setting was a realistic depiction of 1980's NYC but gave it a magical feel which made you think masked heors could happen. The 80's references were priceless, such as Ozymendias and David Bowie together or the whole nixon thing and so much more. Another thing I loved was the lighting. I loved how it was very dark but had flashing instances, such as the whole smiley face thing or the scenes on mars of the transformation into Dr. Manhatten. He also stayed very very true to the graphic novel.
The next I will praise is the cast. I for one think Jackie Edward Haley's portrayal of Rorschach was as good as Heath Ledger's as The Joker [please no negative comments on that], he played it so well and just how you imagined when you were reading it. I also love Patric Wilson as Nite Owl, he played almost in a nerd type way and made him seem like a normal guy but when he got out as Nite Owl he completly changed. One thing I did not like was The Comedian in the movie. In the book he seemed like a cool guy but a little bit of a jerk and in the movie he was more full on jerk, it was not the actors falt but more the writing. The rest of the acting was pretty good too, I especially liked the casting of Malin Akerman who was not quite like silk in the book but was still good and not a big name actress like some they were conidering.
I loved the script writing and how close it was to the graphic novel. I loved how it swerved things from the graphic novel subtly.
I just want to say this pushed the envelope and is all around the best cbm ever.
