Overview and review of Watchmen Directed by Zack Snyder

This movie was based on a graphic novel. I haven't read that one so I don't know about any alterations or whatsoever.

This movie is set on 1985, the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of their masked colleague is brutally murdered, they were brought together. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot.

It's a long movie and I find it gory but nevertheless I enjoyed the storyline. Great picture and special effects as well. Watchmen is something special though and deserves discussion and wonderful dialogue in between.


Rorschach: You see, Doctor, God didn't kill that little girl. Fate didn't butcher her and destiny didn't feed her to those dogs. If God saw what any of us did that night he didn't seem to mind. From then on I knew... God doesn't make the world this way. We do.

My friend and I were recently discussing about the prevalence of technology in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.
