Quotes from Time Magazine's Nerd World blog regarding an advance screening of the film:
"Sitting in that screening room and watching the visual world of the Watchmen movie unfold was one of the most powerful experiences I've ever had. Not film experiences. Just EXPERIENCES."
"What will people who've never read Watchmen even think of this film? What will it be like for them to sit through these crazy, violent, colorful three hours and not recognize almost every line – almost every image? Will they be utterly baffled, bored, or totally love it? Is Watchmen even a good or bad movie? I have no idea."
"For me, Watchmen isn't a movie at all. It's a miracle the likes of which my 14-year-old self would never have believed."
