Becky and I went to see The Watchmen on Saturday Night, at the Kerasotes theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Rotten Tomatoes website at The Watchmen describes the movie as follows:
” A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the Doomsday Clock — which… A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the Doomsday Clock — which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union — moves closer to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the outlawed but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes…”
The Watchmen apparently was a big hit at the box office this weekend, with crazy people like Becky and me giving this stupid film our money. Sixty-five percent of the visitors to Rotten Tomatoes liked this flick and there were even some people who hooted and hollered at the end of our movie. Becky and I were thinking they had to be excited like we were, that the movie was over. It’s a silly, graphically violent, epic, about unbelievable super hero’s that is three hours long.
Okay, 2 hours and 43 minutes, plus previews, so get ready to sit for three hours, if you decide to go see this movie. It’s not worth it. Watching a guy get his arms cut off, a lady have a bullet blow through her leg, constant beatings is not entertainment unless you’re dull. Over and over, this film has violence combined with a few wild sex scenes and there isn’t a brain cell left in your head, after three hours to think anything good about this film – you’re numb.
As one reviewer wrote, “Watchmen left me looking at the exit far more often than at the screen.” Enough said, don’t waste your time or money on this one.
