Watchmen

This is one superhero movie that I actually wanted to see. I read the comic and thought it was okay and the movie seems to track pretty closely to the original story. The version I watched was the director's cut and it definitely could use some editing. There's a bit too much backstory and too many tangents. Still, I thought it all worked well. Fortunately, there isn't too much cliche superhero action but Zack Snyder still manages to inject way too much of his goofy CGI style everywhere.
