Watchmen: Complete Motion Comic *PBB

 

Note: Some reviews were written before we just about gave up on Hollywood--just like one of those couples that think, "This time it'll work out." These reviews may not be as bitter as the Bitter Balcony norm, and are noted by: *PBB (Pre-Bitter Balcony).

Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic
Director: Jake Strider Hughes

In wake of Tom Snyder's very good adaptation of A--- M---- and Dave Gibbons' masterwork Watchmen, an animated version of the graphic novel has been released. Matching the novel almost panel by panel, the minor movements of Rorschach across the purple and yellow alleyways of Gibbons' dystopian New York capture the errieness that makes this story timeless. All 12 chapters of the novel are intact, with the exception of the articles and profiles about each Watchmen. Voice actor Tom Stechschulte does the narration and voices all the characters; He nails most of the Watchmen but I would have wanted a female voice actor for Silk Spectre 1 and 2(he also did the voice of the women). The musical score has classic Sci-fi arrangements similar to a NOVA documentary, which works to perfection in Doctor Manhattan's exile and medidation on time in the Red Valleys of Mars. All the additions are incorporated well, but the brilliance of this version is to stand back and let the richness of M----'s writing sink in. His knowledge and gift with words guide us through the darkness like Dr.Manhattan travels through the universe, deep in thought with a slight shade of empathy towards a known outcome.
