Bryan Lienesch91 - Of all the films in the DC Comics genre, this is probably my favorite. There is simply nothing else like it. Wholly entertaining and done with a visual style that is just jaw-dropping.

Steve Habrat85 - The more times you see it, the more that is revealed to you. A beautiful and ornate study of the superhero.

Usman Ashraf75 - Here's the thing with the Watchmen, the complete movie ran way too long so they had to cut some key scenes out of the movie (trimming it to around 3 hours). The complete cut of the film is amazing, whereas the theatrical cut is often confusing for people who haven't read the book. So if you can, try watch the complete director's cut, definitely worth it!
