Quis custodiet ipsos custodiet?

"Who watches the watchmen?"
- Juvenal, Roman poet

Well, I most certainly did!

No spoilers here, but I did like the movie despite it's almost being 3 hrs. long. Pretty much atypical as it's a thinking movie, with a lot of backstoriesthrown in. It's a crime for a comic geekzoid like me not to have read the original source (which I will soon), but I was pretty much impressed with the main theme of the whole movie: does the end justify the means? Will you go the lengths of killing millions to arrest nuclear destruction and achieve global peace? A good coffee-time (and blog) topic, if I may say so.

In the meantime, off to bed for me.


  1. The graphic novel is an impressive epic - mindblowing, vast, impossibly detailed - and Alan Moore was really a genius in stretching the comics medium to new possibilities with the story. So I'm unavoidably skeptical of the movie (haven't seen it yet). I wonder how your perspective will be different since you've seen the movie already. Blog about it again ha. :) - Jeline (thanks for dropping by me blog!)
