This is still a really mixed bag for me. So much works and yet so much doesn’t. It’s visually amazing but its brilliant ideas and great foundations of character development are so half-baked and too often get lost in the shuffle of the messy plot. It just bites off so much more than it can chew which is a shame because the story has so much cinematic potential and I want to like it so badly. Rorschach is easily the best part though. Jackie Earle Haley was born to play him and he’s such a cool character. Fuck Dr. Manhattan though. Also, the soundtrack¬†rules.
