I saw this last night (Projectionist friend at Storm, Belfast let myself and a few friends into the 3 day early staff screening ) and was totally blown away by it. Its definately the best film i've seen so far this year, and its equally as good as The Dark Knight. I fully reccomend you go and see it on Friday night when its released (in the UK), and do go asap because you want to get the full dolby surround and best picture quality possible for this movie... no sloppy seconds reel thats been ran through the projector a couple dozen times by the second week its out! Its just an incredible experience to watch it. Zack Snyder is a total genius. I havent been so impressed with a Director since Michel Mann blew me away with Heat and Miami Vice. You dont just see the fight scenes in Watchmen, you feel them. 100% my favourite film at the moment, until something better (and its gonna take a lot of bettering) comes along! Any questions about it please ask and I will answer them!
