Poll: Watchmen(movie) misunderstood masterpiece or does it suck? (44 votes)

Misunderstood masterpiece 34%
Good popcorn movie i watch for the action 25%
I dont really like it but its watchable 20%
Watchmen sucks 11%
I want to see the poll results. 9%

I remember seeing it at the theater and being a total fanboy. I was mad that i did not get to see the giant squid monster on screen.

Honestly it still bums me out but everytime i watch the movie it blows me away. It was perfectly casted and i thought zack snyder nailed the tone. The opening title sequence was genius and the action is top notch.

Snyder is hit and miss but at least he stuck to his guns. This movie is a misunderstood masterpiece imo and its grown on me.

Can't say it was a masterpiece. Can't say it was "just good popcorn action movie", because it wasn't that either. It's something in between. But in top 5 DC movies all time in my opinion. Still no masterpiece.

Watchmen was a low scoring, flop. trash film is totally overrated by DC fanboys.

It has problems, certainly, but as someone once pointed out to me, Watchmen was a story that was very much meant to be a comic book. All things considered it was probably one of the best live-action adaptations we could have gotten. I don't think it deserves all the hate it gets.

It's definitely a really good movie, a lot of underlying themes.

Its a good film, but a disappointment compared to its source material, which is a classic. It doesn't suck, but its no masterpiece either.

Watchmen the Comic book is one of the greatest comics of all time that being said the movie sucked compared to its source.

Solid movie but not a masterpiece. It's my favorite Snyder flick.

Misunderstood masterpiece. To this day I put it in my top 5 superhero movies of all time.

the director's cut makes it over 3 hours long but very well worth it. it will be the Blade Runner of it's time.

OT:

Watchmen is my favorite CBM.

I wouldn't call any CBM a masterpiece, though. But to me it's TDK tier.

I like how easy he is to spot.

Thought i was the only one, lol. This guy is unkillable.

Why does this guy have so much energy to hate on anything DC related on a comicbook forum?

He's probably 12 years old and has nothing to do with his life.

It was technically fine. Just not something that grabbed me.

The "misunderstood masterpiece" joke died awhile ago. It should stop.
