" @Everyones_A_Critic said:I did read the book first, and I loved it. It's the only graphic novel I've ever read, but I couldn't put it down my first time through. I admire Zack Snyder for having the balls to try to film such a masterpiece, and I think it came out beautifully. I wish they kept the original ending but other than that it was 100% faithful to the source material. Hell, I even bought the "Ultimate Cut" for like $40 when it came out..." @JokerSmilez said:You really loved Watchmen that much? Out of curiosity, did you read the book first?

" @Everyones_A_Critic: I disagree that it was 100% faithful to the book other than the ending. I mean, they left out a lot of stuff and changed quite a lot of little things that added up to a lot. The 3 biggest things that bothered me besides the ending were: 1. How they altered the setting which completely changed the motivations of Ozymandias. 2. Ozymandias himself wasn't true to the book in just about anyway at all when every other character was spot on3. They altered the "breaking point" moment of Rorschach which completely changes him from a morally ambiguous character, which is kind of the whole point. Originally I wasn't disappointed in the changed ending but the more I thought about it, and the more upset I got with the other things mentioned above, the more I was just disappointed in the lack of the true ending. The best parts of the movie was seeing the iconic moments and images recreated on screen and they missed an opportunity to show one of the more iconic scenes from the entire book. When I really thought about how awesome it would have been to see the books ending on screen, the more upset I got at the changed ending. I was really disappointed with Watchmen. So far, there's only been a small few comic movies I really enjoyed. Dark Knight, Sin City, Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man are probably it (in that order). I also liked V for Vendetta but I know a lot of people who have read the book who didn't like it, so I can only comment on it as a standalone movie, not as an adaptation. "I enjoyed V for Vendetta as well, and I haven't read the book. No matter which way you look at it, the changed ending just stinks of something Hollywood did to "dumb the movie down". As much as I loved the movie, upon repeat viewings Malin Akerman's performance as Silk Spectre II was wooden to say the least. I also thought Matthew Goode's turn as Ozymandias wasn't the best, and I think he may have been miscast. Even with these flaws, though, I still think the amazing reproduction of the most iconic scenes and the performances by Jackie Earle Haley and Jeffrey Dean Morgan elevated the film immensely and made it my favorite comic book movie ever. I recommend watching the Director's Cut of the film (Note: different from the "Ultimate Cut") because they did add a rather significant amount of extra footage that helped flesh out some of the more vague aspects of the film (Hollis Mason's fate to be exact). It's not going to inspire a revelation in your opinion, but I think it might be worth it. The Ultimate Cut has the whole Tales of the Black Freighter film woven in, and as a result adds some book-ending scenes (no terrible pun intended) that only the most die-hard fans will ever care about. Not to mention that it's like....nearly four hours long. So yeah, The Director's Cut is worth a look if you ever feel so inclined.
