Yeah, but the movie is utter shit.
For a while I think I was Ok with the film. Second viewing proved it was slightly less ridiculously terrible and disgusting than I remembered it.
But then I re-read the book last spring, and it became even more clear how terrible (seriously, completely FUCKING ridiculous and insulting) the movie was. Holy shit. Insulting to the world, to Moore and Gibbons, to Leonard Cohen. All it had going for it was some nice sequences, but my god it fucking nearly killed Watchmen for me.
It also got Snyder the longstanding DC films job, so... y'know... fuck it.
