  • Stumbles and sometimes falls on its top-heavy ambitions. But there are also flashes of visual brilliance and performances, especially from Haley and Crudup, that drill deep into the novel's haunted soul. show more

  • Part conscious and part unconscious, Watchmen tells us of a world without hope and then makes us wonder if we're already living in it. show more

  • In the canon of comic-book movies, it's not as campy bad as the "Batman" starring George Clooney, but nowhere near the caliber of the Spider-Man movies or "The Dark Knight." It may have more style, but it's only a jot more entertaining than "Catwoman." show more

    Zack Syder is not a film editor, don't let the title Director's Cut Fool you. It is just a cheap marketing gimmicks thought up by the Warner Brothers Department of bad ideas.
