** In a meta sense Matthew Goode gave a similar (though much more profane) rant to critics of the film, telling them he doesn't "give a fuck" what they think and can "suck my dick" if they don't like it.

* The entire opening credit sequence, set to "The Times They Are A-Changing", explained virtually ''all'' of the backstory of the comic book that we needed to know in about two minutes. Awesome.

** How about the baffling reveal that he was the [[spoiler:Ginger with the 'End is Nigh' sign none of us noticed.]] Very ninja.



** Another good one is when he breaks up a demonstration during the police strike:

to:

** [[spoiler:Veidt's]] response to that scene is pretty damn good too, as [[spoiler:he picks up an object while staring down someone who could kill him and ruin everything with a thought]].
---> "What's that? Another ultimate weapon?"
---> "You could say that." ([[spoiler:switches on all the international news stations]])

** I liked it because Ozy seemed to be opening his arms for a hug. "I'm not going to fight back; I deserve everything you're about to do to me."
* "Your turn, doctor. What do YOU see?"
* A bit obvious but a giant, naked, Dr. Manhattan marching on Vietnamese soliders, with Ride of the Valkyries music playing, and in slow motion, one by one, his pops the Vietnamese soldiers with his mind.

* Say what you want about the creative liberties, Manhattan's digital body was like staring directly at God while the comics' cyan colossus garnered a bit to much empathy at times.
* The sex scene in flight between [[spoiler:Nite Owl and Silk Spectre]] after the flame thrower is hit, this troper's entire theater applauded to show how much of a crowning moment that was. Several other scene's were applauded as well (having been mentioned already). One not mentioned were some of the names of the characters in the credits (Fat thug and Dumb thug being among the names). After talking to other movie goers, it was agreed that the movie as a whole was a crowning moment of awesome in and of itself.

** Not to mention that [[CrowningMusicofAwesome Mozart's Requiem Aeternam]] plays in the background, perfectly symbolising [[spoiler: exactly what is going through Veidt's mind]] without the need for any dialogue.
* "I'm disappointed in you, [[spoiler:Adrian]]. I'm ''very'' disappointed." Cue giant Dr Manhattan smashing through Ozymandias' roof. And this badass boast.
--> '''Dr Manhattan''':I have walked across the surface of the Sun. I have witnessed events so tiny and so fast they can hardly be said to have occurred at all. But you, Adrian, you're just a man. The world's smartest man poses no more threat to me than does its smartest termite.

* The special edition features Hollis Mason fighting back futilely yet heroically against his murderers, scored with the theme from ''Raging Bull'' to make it even more emotional than in the comic.
