Who will watch "Watchmen"?: Tulkinghorn did.

In brief: Awful. Not Heaven's Gate or Matrix Reloaded awful, but why-did-they-work-so-hard-when-they-must-have-known-how-bad-it-was awful. Unless you're interested in coming up with opinions about movies instead of watching movies (see below), I suggest that Michael Holroyd's biography of Bernard Shaw will, on any page, make you happier than the entire eight hours -- subjective time -- of this one.

There is, of course, addiction as a cause to see the film. Sadly, as much as I want to resist -- having a lower opinion of the source material than most comic fans -- I must still see the film.

Quch! A.O. Scott in the New York Times concludes that the entire premise of the film "is rooted in a view of human behavior that is fundamentally immature, self-pitying and sentimental."
