One word of warning, this movie is NOT FOR KIDS! DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN TO SEE THIS MOVIE EVEN THOUGH IT IS ABOUT COMIC BOOK SUPER HEROES! Brutal graphic-violence, more than one explicit sex scene (including a partial rape scene), foul language, nudity to include full frontal male nudity (he's a computer generated character, but you can still see his wiener), lesbian kissing, and a very morally ambiguous ending.

So, this is not going to be like Spider-Man where you can watch the movie with your kids and then go to McDonalds to buy the Happy Meal toys. It's rated R for a reason.

Regardless, I would highly recommend this movie to anyone over 18. It's one of those films that, after it's over, will make you think "What would I do in that situation? Would I make the same choices? Would I stick to my values, if doing so guaranteed my destruction?"

As far as I could tell, Rorschach was a perfect translation from the comic book character to the big screen.

Full frontal male nudity and it is only rated R? Wow.

Well, the guy is blue and glowing and the nudity isn't presented in a sexual way. He just has no need for clothing, so he walks around naked in several scenes. Plus, it's not like they ever focus in on his genitals, but you are aware of them in the wide shots. So, the same rules apply as when you're in a male locker room: just block it out and maintain eye contact.

Never ... EVER.. use the term wide.. when talking about male genitals... unless your referring to your own,...

I meant wide-angle shots.

I figured typing "lesbian kissing" would draw you like a moth to the flame.

It really is in the movie, though, at the very beginning.

It was phenomenal. My brother & I saw it as soon as he got out of school Friday (he's a teacher). As nerdy fan-boys, we were most pleased!!

I could make a Smurf-penis joke here, but I think I'll leave it alone.
