Gotta love Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence.
You never offered an 'opinion'. Just stated you think it would be boring because some, like me, lauded the effort to make a complex graphic novel into a watchable film.
Correct me, if I'm wrong...
Which I doubt...
I think you really need to read the book to 'get' the film. It has pretensions to being deep and philosophical, like many graphic novels.

I think you should stop being a sheep and watch it, then form an opinion of your own, never go by what other people say about films.
Probably way to complex for people expecting Spiderman.
I dug it, and I'm down so it's sound.
Could not have put it better!
Watched it Saturday while the ball and chain was at work, and have to say I enjoyed it immensely. Never read the graphic novel, but am a huge fan of the genre which I'm sure helped.
Cant argue that the soundrack was quality either :)
There are other levels of observation that those characters convey.
Dr Manhattan ultimately thinks Human Beings are worthless, with each passing moment, as his own humanity is being purged from him. The Comedian thinks the same thing, but embraces that fact. Rorsach also thinks Humans are worthless, but wants eradicate the worthless by any means. Night Owl II is that worthless Human Being, but even in the vulnerability and flawed state, he still has hope. Ozzy sees the hope, the worthlessness and hate and has to unite them all by any means.
It's brilliant writing, but the released film makes it look hashed and confusing!
