    Not in the same superhuman way though. And I don't remember Rorschach being able to leap halfway up the side of a building in the comic.

    The outcome is the same in either medium. Same number of asses kicked. How does this make one version any more superhuman than the other?

    Snyder captured Watchmen as perfectly as would be possible in a commercial movie. I mean, fuck the squid monster.

    Its not the outcome. It's the abilities. Nite Owl did some flying leaps which are humanly impossible. Cinematic license.

    He also omitted the subplot of the artist who eventually gets blown up. I didn't miss that either. I'll tolerate the excessive gymnastics.

    Yep, and yep. I'm no big Snyder fan, but I do like this movie. I can watch that title sequence all day...

    I thought the changes from the comic to the film were good. Doc Manhattan was a better deterrent. The parking power stations were better as an epilogue (why was there a crisis in the comic anyway?)

    I'll stick up for M'rk here. I don't think it's quite that obvious in the movie, but the movie has a distinct lack of credible suspects for the "mask killer." What Roger Ebert termed "The Law of Economy of Characters" -- movie budgets and story demands mean that no character is extraneous -- really makes Ozymandias stand out as more significant that he appears to be.

    I think the book almost gets away with its lack of red herring suspects, because that plot gets pushed to the background and simmers for a while. It's a bit more foregrounded in the film.
