I actually don't get the hate for Watchmen. It's almost a scene for scene translation of the graphic novel.
Watchmen is the ONE comic in which doing that misses the point completely. It's almost amazing that they didn't realise that.
Exacty! The whole point of the comic is that in this world Superheroes have no sense of grandeur. Other than Doc Manhattan they are just normal people in costumes. They are not cool, ass kicking badasses. They are actually pathetic. It should have had a simple naturalistic style. Its a character drama and mystery, not an action story. Nolan would have been better suited for it.
