The movie had a number of flaws like Dr.Manhattan having a boring physics lecture for almost 50% of the movie (which also made the movie more longer) and him being naked through most of the movie, like I want to see a human sized blue smurf naked with his lipstick showing, I mean my little sister saw that part and I had to make her leave the room after that. The Comedian seems to be a insane anti-hero not superhero, he think nuclear war is funny, that's not funny cause that makes him look like a tool for believing in that sh*t like that. I don't get Nite Owl's 2 and the Silk Specter's 2 relationship, first Owl has a school buy crush on Silk,but she sees him only as a friend and decide to go with Manhattan, and when Manhattan stops having sex with her or stop paying any attention to her, she decides to go with Owl because he 's giving her the attention. Ok is I the only person who thinks this is messed up or what. Also, I don't get why they (besides Rorschach) don't the world it was the guy in the purple suit who killed Innocent lives out of fear of war, but no they decide to keep their mouth shut about it. So that's the flaws, now let me skip to the review.......
The storyline is mostly dark,depressing, and boring. Most of the time they are talking about things not pertaining to the movie or the mystery of the death of the comedian (again minus Rorschach) and again most of the movie theres Dr.Manhattan giving the audience a boring physics lecture that makes the movie more long and boring.
The acting like the storyline was too Dark, depressing, and boring. The only person I can respect enough to like his acting is Jackie Earle Haley who I believe he delivers good enough acting while he plays Rorschach, because he makes Rorschach a real homicidal vigilante with a mixture of Batman and Punisher.
The special effects was crappy. The purple tiger, or jaguar look too fake and those antlers or ears of his looks too fake and creepy, Dr. Manhattan CGI is alright again he looks like a giant human Smurf too me.
The characters are not that interesting enough for me to like them, but Rorschach is the only hero with common sense enough to actually be a hero or anti-hero, Rorschach too me is a mixture of Batman because of his nice detective skills, Batman's nice fighting style and The Punisher because of his homicidal tendencies and those too combination is a nice fit for Rorschach.
So the ups of the movie is the steamy sex scenes (If look real close you can see Silk Specter's boobs), the nice stylized fighting, Rorschach being a bad ass and the mystery of The Comedian death is all pretty cool.
But those ups don't change the fact the movie has too many flaws and too long and boring to convince me it wasn't all that bad, but it was bad.
