I kind of think Watchmen + IMAX = match made in heaven. It’s just so… big and muscular and colorful and noisy and violent. Yeah.

It’s taken me a couple of weeks to post this, maybe because I’d never read (not even sure I’d heard of) the graphic novel so I had no expectations going into this. So… whatever. I liked it. I liked the whole premise of an alternate universe full of familiar real-life people and events being tweaked. I liked how bleak and dark it was, and how flawed so many of the characters were. And I liked how big and muscular and colorful and noisy and violent it was.

It got a little complicated and hard to follow in parts, and I had a serious problem with some of the sexual politics, but still enjoyed it very much.
