Which basically means that when we're spoiling it for you 6 months after it comes out, you have nothing to complain about. ;) :p

If they stick to the story (which it appears they're doing insanely well) then this could be better than the Dark Knight.

It'll be tough...but possible.

This is an adaption from the graphic novel right? Who wrote that?

I wouldn't expect anything less from a faithful adaption of the Watchmen. :p

I read the graphic novel for the first time tonight. The movie is still fresh in my mind and I can honestly say they were incredibly accurate in their adaption.

The change to the nature of the ending particularly, I think fit exceptionally well.

Manhattan being blamed for the disasters fits naturally with his intention to leave Earth anyway. Its more explainable than an attack by a 'bio-engineered psychic space alien' uniting the people of Earth.

I'm not sure novel purists would agree. Again, these are the people complaining about the soundtrack, although most of it has been lifted directly from the source material; if you look closely enough.
