My opinion : Watchmen is a 2009 American superhero film directed by Zack Snyder, based on the 1986–87 DC Comics limited series of the same name by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. It stars an ensemble cast of Malin Åkerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Patrick Wilson. Synopsis : In 1985 where former superheroes exist, the murder of a colleague sends active vigilante Rorschach into his own sprawling investigation, uncovering something that could completely change the course of history as we know it. Though its received mostly mediocre reviews from the general public for its dark gritty source material and its complex hard to follow and intricate story that rarely follows its comic book counterpart, I quite love the idea of what would happen if superior beings (such as heroic beings) were to be present during the cold war and how they would affect this alternate history. The dazzling array of heroes in the story are tremendously compelling, each hero following different political views, Rorschach for example is a far right cynical and pessimistic anti-hero who has claimed sees the world in its true colors even though his ideas tell me all he sees is black and white. I’m not going to talk about this beautiful symbolistic experience of a movie filled with striking visuals (he’s Zack Snyder after all) and a compelling dramatic story of heroes in hiding who are asked to be retired and try to fight off the reality that this world does not need them anymore. 8.2/10
