My favorite movie of the superhero genre
We live in an era there the superhero genre is big, and since Iron Man (2008) begun the Marvel Cinematic Universe, superheroes have been seen on the big screen more than ever. Marvel and DC are the rivals who dominates the cinematic world, but Watchmen is neither Marvel nor DC.
Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons and John Higgins, the movie adapts the story close to the original source and have a great cast. Especially Jackie Earle Haley as the dark and brooding Rorschach steals the show, the man is born to play dark and intimidating characters.
What I like very much about Watchmen is the unconventional and dark tone. What if superheroes existed in real life, who would they be and would they be so sympathetic and likeable? The Comedian is seen as a hero, but he is a really bad human being and more like a villain. Ozymandias is considered a villain, but feels in some aspects more of a hero than The Comedian.
Some people say Watchmen isn't really a superhero movie, it is more like a mystery and crime drama which happens to have superheroes in it. One of the greatest adaptations of a comic in my opinion, this movie is an underrated master piece to me.
