A GLORIOUS EXISTENCE

WATCHMEN (2009)
–  4 out of 5 stars

Watchmen is set in an alternate timeline in America, where costumed superheroes exist to help fight crime. However, in the 1980s, they have been outlawed and were forced to strip off their masks and lead normal lives. When The Comedian is murdered, Rorschach (member of The Watchmen) suspects that someone might be killing masked superheroes and enlists the help of the other retired Watchmen. The scenes can be rather violent and bloody but the action scenes are good. Silk Spectre II can really hurt people and Rorschach’s mask is really very intriguing. He’s my favourite of all the superheroes featured in the film. He may be extremely violent but somehow, I think it is all justified.


Rorschach: I’M NOT STUCK IN HERE WITH YOU! YOU’RE ALL STUCK IN HERE WITH ME!

Rorschach: The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout ‘Save us!’ And I’ll look down, and whisper ‘No.’
