** In the book, when Rorschach traps the fat henchmen's hands in the bars of his cell, the Big Figure has the goon's throat slit [[GoryDiscretionShot offscreen]], with only the jet of blood visible. In the movie, the poor guy has his arms cut off with a circular saw, ''completely onscreen.''

* {{Expy}}: Minus the long, flowing cape, the one shot of Dollar Bill that we get in the opening credits looks like a stylized version of Golden Age ComicBook/CaptainAmerica 's suit.

** In the graphic novel, Dr. Manhattan essentially winks his enemies out of existence. In the film, he paints the walls with them.

* BloodierAndGorier: Oh, yes. Indeed, it is to modern comic book movies what ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' was to other comics in its day - brutal and nasty.
** Fans of the comic will be surprised just how often the comic uses {{Gory Discretion Shot}}s and the film ''doesn't''.

** Dan punches a Knot Top in the elbow so hard that it breaks and splits open on the other side in a gout of blood and bone. He punches another in the shin so hard it snaps in half and collapses in on itself.
** [[spoiler: Jon Osterman's]] death is shown in graphic slow-motion, as his clothes, skin, organs, and bones are peeled away and vaporized.
** In the graphic novel, Dr. Manhattan essentially winks his enemies out of existence. In the film, he paints the walls with them.
** Rorschach's first murder is far more graphic in the film than it is in the book, and made exponentially worse in the Director's Cut. He splits the child-killer's head open with a cleaver, gives him a [[BondOneLiner one-liner]], then keeps on hacking until his nose and other assorted chunks of flesh are literally dangling off of his face.

Fox originally held the movie rights and apparently never truly lost them, and so they sued (with the threat of blocking the release), but is instead settling for a cut of the profits from WB. This decision, at least, proved worthwhile for Fox.
