|A Parental Review of "The Watchmen" for Concerned Parents:|
This was a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE movie! It is really really NOT appropriate for people of any ages in my opinion. The violence was over the top gratuitous, including violence involving a child, a rape attempt and shooting of a pregnant woman and a pretty graphic depiction of President Kennedy’s assasination. There may have been more but I walked out 45 minutes before the end of the movie and seriously wanted to throw up. None of the characters were sympathetic so that the hour and a half I did see, I didn’t much care about anyone. The plot was all over the place but I’ve been told it comes together in the end. I wanted to scrub my brain afterwards and ask for that hour and a half of my life back. Very disturbing.
Please don’t be fooled by the “superhero” comic book thing and make the mistake of taking your children really of any age. I personally don’t think it’s appropiate for humans. I don’t know when I have ever seen a movie that actually made me angry all the way into the next day.
