(This is for Watchmen
This actually wasn't so bad. Except for the corny Die Hard On The Statue Of Liberty
opening. And the Comedian's nonpresence
. And the cheesy one-liners. And "Night Owl"'s utter unlikableness. And the lack of Ozymandias awesomeness. And the "Civil Terrorism Unit"
(really guys?). And a little plothole involving cigarettes. And Laurie's lack of personality. And Manhattan zapping Ozzy
with lightning, turning him into a charred pair of boots like in the cartoons. (There wasn't any slow-mo sex set to "Hallelujah", though, that's a plus).
The biggest thing, though, is the ending. Time traveling, really
? I could accept Ozzy messing with timelines but dropping the surviving "Watchmen" into the real world is totally unnecessary, cheesy, and dumb beyond belief. If there was a Crowning Moment Of Narm
trope I would pothole it, and it would be the crowning moment for the entire history of film (I might be speaking too soon, I haven't seen Batman And Robin
yet. It would take a lot to out-narm this, though). I think the Watchmen should have held hands as they watched the time rupture destroy the universe around them set to "Where Is My Mind?". Yeah, I would have been ok with that.
