.. I dunno. The first hour of this is one of the most brilliant head turning 60 minutes of film I’ve seen in a while. So much energy. I love the drab noir tone Snyder captures. I love the random pop music choices. The editing is perfect. The almost anime looking colours. I’m assuming a lot of the stuff I’m mentioning is straight out of the graphic novel right?
Meanwhile everything after the set up and world building kinda went down hill and lost me. While the visuals remain very good, it kinda wore out it’s welcome and the plot became very generic and by today’s standards tropey to me, which is completely the opposite of what the first act did but whatever. Some great ideas, I hope Lindelof captures everything about the first hour of this for movie for his series.
Question: How is the series gonna be any different to the movie? Isn’t there only one Watchmen novel? Is Lindeloff gonna take these characters and the tone and do his own thing?
I believe the series is set 20-30 years after the book / movie
