... yesterday, along with my daughter (home from school for a brief visit), and enjoyed it a lot. While there were a couple of scenes which seemed to either go on too long or just felt a bit superfluous, and some really unnecessary (in my opinion) over-the-top bits of violence, as a whole it was extremely entertaining. It certainly held my attention for the entire two hours and forty-three minutes. It's quite a beautiful-looking movie, with some great performances and memorable characters.
I purposely held off re-reading "Watchmen" before seeing the movie (the last time I read it was when the original comics came out), and with that caveat, I think it was a fine adaptation. Now I'm planning to read the graphic novel and see if the film left out -- or added -- anything substantial. And I'll probably go to see the film again after that. -- PL
