Anyway, the Daily Mail has reviewed Watchmen. Shockingly, they didn't get it. Also, it's a terrible indictment of the world today.
The review complains about the "shocking tastelessness" of the violence. It calls the vigilantes "alarmingly fascistic", which made me laugh out loud - the Mail saying that like it's a bad thing! Maybe they're secret left-wingers! It calls it unoriginal, pretentious, overblown, and hard to stay awake through. And it finishes:
Watchmen is unwatchable - a grotesque squandering of time, talent and technology.
This despicable trash will find an audience among sad sociopaths, deranged pseudo-intellectuals and brutalised, immature men of all ages. I just hope that there aren't enough of them to make it a hit. If there are, God help cinema.
I think I must be a deranged pseudo-intellectual.
Now, what better reason do you need to go and see it?
