Great podcasts guys!
Went to see the film last night.
While I did liked the film, I left the cinema quite dissapointed. I wasn't looking for a frame by frame reconstrution and while it was so faithful to the original book, I found it lost a lot in translation yes all the characters ar there and all the major plot points but I felt a lot of the humanity was not forthcomng and I thought that would be one of the strengths of adapting Watchmen to film.
I thought Comedian was quite one dimensional, I remember really feeling for him in his last days knowing what he did in the book. I found the sex scenes intention a bit of I always thought that part should have been more fetishistic (is that a word) more fast paced as Dan got off wearing the suit not the slow motion shagging we got in the film and I thought the fight scenes whike quite spectacular got a bit Buffy the Vampir, which I think goes against the premise of the story of real people in costumes, I almost with that the film would have been shot more like a documentary to relfect the realism that was portayed in the book.
Don't get me wrong there was a lot to like in this film and it really could have come out worst but I think it needed a more inteligent director.
