Review of: Watchmen Overall Rating: 10 Watchmen is a brilliant and great example of how a movie can stay true to a story, be artful and free of bone idle Hollywood pandering. I loved it and will watch it over and over again. Everyone should watch this movie it will enrich their lives and make them think. That said there are also some warnings. It does not have a happy ending. It does not have likable characters. It will make you think. Watchmen is not the film to watch if one is expecting a light or fun movie but it is a great film.
