We do not have a full review for this movie because it is rated R in the US and we usually only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies.


Based on a comic book, Watchmen follows a group of superheroes that are brought together by their former colleague Rorshach (Jackie Earle Haley) after another of their members is murdered. The investigation into the death of The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) uncovers not just a plan to eliminate them, but also a larger diabolical plot threatening to destroy the 1985 world in which they live.

All I can say is praise the Lord we put the kids to bed first! My husband didn’t pay attention to the rating (and I didn’t bother to check) because we were thinking along the lines of Spiderman and such. Maybe it’s because we haven’t watched many R rated films for awhile but when did it become ok for full frontal male nudity? Apparently if your blue and glowing it’s ok. For pities sake, his only costume is a spedo did they not have enough money to rent it for the full movie or what? You could have taken out ALL of the objectionable sexual and language content and had a much better movie. Then they could have taken the saved time and money and created a phenomenal one.
