Watchmen: Motion Comic (2008) Reviewed

This is an abridged 12 segment take on the comic book with bad voice acting. There are mentions of an island, despairing apathy and charmlessness. This has portentous doom and gloom. Nite Owl II has wide-eyed indignation at the ultimate consequences of people playing at being superheroes. Did Laurie and Dr Manhattan hook up when she was 15? Ew. Deliberately amoral types do amoral things. Rorschach had oh-so-fun formative years. The grinning jackass Adrian Veidt is crazy. Laurie is vapid and has no aura of menace. Rorschach and Nite Owl II ride scooters through the Antarctic. The shrike Laurie annoys, Vedit is devious and this was good. But as horrifying as the giant squid is; how would anyone ever believe it was alien?
