    I don't understand, for the life of me, why they didn't divide this movie up into 3 parts. There are so many interesting characters I would've loved to dive deep into their nuances and get to know them better instead of breezing over every single one of them. I've never seen a movie before where character development takes presidence over the central plot.

    I give the movie a B-, mostly because the special effects were great and some of the characters were interesting. The overall storyline was rushed and terrible. But hey, gratituitious nudity of hot chicks never hurts!

    Havent seen it yet, but ive been watching "The Watchmen" motion comic book videos, and i realized by the 4th episode, there is way too much info for a simple 2 hour movie. Still cant wait to see the movie though.

    In comic book form it was 12 parts, released one per month.

    It is a very complex story, I haven't seen the movie but I know the story quite well.

    I highly recommend the motion comic format. Its in 12 parts and has sound and movement. Its basically a souped up comic book. Very cool.

    Yeah, the shop i used is the program "bittorrent" and i go to isoHunt - the BitTorrent and P2P search engine to find them. Yeah, im one of those guys that likes free entertainment. :razz:

    At isohunt.com, just type in "the watchmen comic" in the search engine and you will see all those motion comics come up. Theres 12 of them.

    Im still waiting to find a good copy of the movie at ISOhunt. Often times you can find dvd quality copies while the films are still in the theatre. You need to read the comments on the item you are looking at to find out if its a good copy or not.
