I don’t often use the word “hate” when talking about films, because I feel that it is too much. In the case of Watchmen I don’t think it’s a strong enough word. It is quite simply a fucking disaster. The source material is perfect; a graphic novel that is so rich in substance, yet director Zack Snyder decides to focus on the visuals, violence and vigilante costumes that he somehow manages to sexualise. Snyder seems to know very little about the source material, I imagine the pages of his copy are mysteriously stuck together having been fucked too many times.
