Watchmen Movie Opens Nationwide

The long awaited movie, "Watchmen", based on the comic series that was later released as a graphic novel opened in theaters March 6, 2009. This is another in a growing list of movies that started as a graphic novel but this one is special because "Watchmen" is considered one of the best graphic novels ever published.

The cult status of "Watchmen" puts such high expectations on the movie that it is likely to disappoint at least some of the fans. The movie has tried to do justice to the original graphic novel written by Alan Moore, considered to be one of the best graphic novelists. He has created a superhero comic that maintains many of the conventions of the genre but takes it to places never tried before.

For those unfamiliar with "Watchmen" it is probably a good idea to check out the website for the movie and/or one of the many books available about the graphic novel and the movie.
