The Don't Watchmen

Honestly.. I feel like I just wasted 3 hours of my life and I can't get it back! I guess there was some story to the movie, but you know what? I didn't want to know. I followed the stories, but the whole movie was way too slow. I can't say I really enjoyed any part of it. Maybe the heroic scenes. Maybe it's the fact that I know nothing about these Watchmen but I just didn't get this movie. To me it is a movie I was better off not watching. There were some good effects tho.. Thats about the only good thing this movie had going for it.
-Didn't care about the story
-3 hours long
-Didn't care about the characters

Final Grade: D and that's being nice.. i'm not watching a superhero movie again that involves someone or some group of people i dont know or care about. end of story

"They say you're judged by the strength of your enemies. "

Well lets see.. Sure I'm going to be a little shaky with this here. I just finished Quantum of Solace. I have to say. yet another Daniel Craig Bond that makes me happy. The action in this movie was pretty awesome. The chase scenes and fighting are always very well done. I was very pleased with that aspect. Now maybe because I was watching it and doing other things a tad made me not follow the story to tell if its really that great of a movie, it just didn't seem like it was a big deal. I know Bond was out for Vespa's killer and such from Casino Royale, but i just didn't get it. Seemed to me he was just out to kill anyone and anything, which yes revenge will do that to a person. All in all I still think this is a movie worth seeing, as all the Bond movies I have seen thus far are.

+Daniel Craig as Bond
+Fighting Scenes
+More Action (get down again)
-Didn't care about the story or Vespa being dead

Final Grade B+

I may have to purchase this one anyway and rewatch it and focus.. but I definitely love the Bond movies. I would give an A overall just because its Bond, but in the end.. The story matters just enough to decrease it to B+ status.
