Default WATCHMEN

I just picked up the graphic novel last night to give it a reread. I read it probably 10-12 years ago. I really hope the movie does the book justice.

I never read the novel and don't even know much about the characters.

However, the trailers for the movie look really good. I want to see it - preferably in IMax.

It's a great story and I think it will stand on it's own as a film. I'm curious ot see how they cut it. As it is the movie would be about 4 hours wrong...

If Rorschach's persona is played well, the movie will be visually stunning enough to make it work for me. He is the lynchpin and the catalyst all in one.
