Movie review: Watchmen

Now this movie came out a while ago but re-watching it in this time of comic book titles being released every few months can give you a new understanding of the movie. Unlike a lot of people I haven’t had a chance to read the graphic novel series but I did like this movie.

From the time jumps and the looks into the dark parts of even a hero’s life. While it was a deep commentary on how heroes are perceived and just what society and government spins, it is at heart and comic book movie. The villains are bigger than life and not necessarily who you think they are. That no matter the monuments life is more than good and evil, right and wrong. Well worth watching from a new perspective as an older and maybe wiser movie watcher. The best part is of course the final scene with the reporter picking up and reading the journal.
