The Watchmen
"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" (Who watch the watchmen?)

Kayaknya film bagus banget nih. Sudah main di Amerika. Sebelum nonton lihat reviewnya dulu.

Mick LaSalle, Chronicle Movie Critic, * * * *
Director Zack Snyder is beginning to look like the best thing to happen to the action movie in this decade. His new picture, "Watchmen," achieved a psychological sophistication that "The Dark Knight" aimed for but didn't quite reach.

Kyle Smith, New York Post, * * * *
Despite the burden of a story in which "it's too late, always has been, always will be," "Watchmen" levitates with a prophetic fury worthy of the Jimi Hendrix cover of "All Along the Watchtower" that blasts over a key scene. Other fantasy movies are playing checkers. This one plays chess, with grandmaster panache.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Suntimes, * * * *
The film is rich enough to be seen more than once.
That level of symbolism is coiling away beneath all superheroes. What appeals with Batman is his humanity; despite his skills, he is not supernormal. “Watchmen” brings surprising conviction to these characters as flawed and minor gods.
