Well... I did. Last night.
My biggest concern regarding the movie was always how much they would be forced to leave out of it. And the answer is... not much. Snyder has managed to stuff most of the key elements from the comic into the movie with amazing accuracy and style... and more importantly, still manages to make a great movie instead of just a collage of scenes. That bein' said there still is enough stuff missing to make me wait the ultimate-absolutely-final-and-long-as-hell-directors-cut version on DVD.
I'm sure there's people who say that the movie doesn't have this or that and it's not true to the original graphic novel because this or that was changed into something else, but I think it was a DAMN fine interpretation of one of the greatest and most complex comicbooks ever done...
The cast of the movie is also great. Naturally the two leading sosiopaths (the Comedian and Rorschach) steal the show, but the whole cast is pretty much spot-on. The only character I would've done little bit differently was Ozymandias. In the original comic Ozzy seemed very emotional and empathic (even too emotional) whereas the Adrian Veidt of the movie is very calm and stoic and almost expressionless.
The WATCMEN is a great superhero movie for adults. It has violence and nudity (I was happy to discover that even a superhero can have a penis... which usually doesn't seem to be the case. In fact at some point I humoured myself thinking that the main reason for all the frustrated violence in the comics world was because, despite all the muscles and sexy looks and tight outfits, the people didn't have genitals... I know I would be pissed off!) but also a deeper level that provokes thoughts (about Malin Akerman in high heels... NO! No, don't... concentrate... CONCENTRATE!) about the human psyche and moral (YES! That's more like it!)
Also the soundtrack deserves to be mentioned. It really nails the movie to the historical time frame, subtly reminding the audience when everything takes place.
I loved the movie.
