Recently, I saw the collected Watchmen graphic novel on the shelves of Walmart, and picked it up. I read it at breakneck pace over the course of a week, and was engrossed.
Tim and I just got back from seeing the movie. I’ll say this- it is amazing. the ending changed- I think for the better- the soul of the book, the grit, grime, and skeletons in the closet are there. The action is good- I’d say the action scenes are better than the comic, though that may be stylistic preference. And they kept my favorite line from the whole book (slightly changed, but still there.) In essence, it’s an amazing adaptation, squeezing in as much of the story as possible and doing a great job.
I want to watch it again, like right now. I’ll be picking up the DVD of this as soon as it comes out.
