-LIGHT SPOILERS--LIGHT SPOILERS--LIGHT SPOILERS-
This post contains light spoilers describing one scene in the movie and uses that and only that scene to let you know how the transferred the classic graphic novel to film.
Went and saw WATCHMEN today.
It was fucking awesome!!!
I'm a huge fan of the graphic novel and was very happy with how it translated to the big screen.
Basically the movie uses the graphic novel as the script and story board but not in a bad way. It will get you following the dialogue thinking its word for word, then bam something different gets thrown in!
For example, the scene were Rorshach is telling the story of the kidnapped girl and how he became Rorschach. He handcuffs the guy to the stove and if you have read the novel your expecting him to douse the place in gas and throw him a hacksaw. Instead, WAM he hits the guy in the head with a cleaver.
So its true to the book scene to scene and just when you realize its word for word they throw a small change in to catch you off guard.
There are rumors about how the end of the film is different than the novel. That isn't true, it just is more practical than teleporting a giant psychic genetically engineered alien looking creature into time square like they do in the book.
Same outcome, same plot, just different delivery device.
I like the way the movie did it better than the graphic novel.
Bit easier to follow but not dumbed down in the least bit.
Loved the actors too, was unsure when i saw the stills but in action there all perfect fits.
Hope you enjoy the movie too!
Thanks for the watches, comments, and commissions!
