Watchmen Synopsis

A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, the film is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity…but who is watching the Watchmen?

Matthew Goode Knows You Hated Him For Watchmen Matthew Goode Knows You Hated Him For Watchmen
In the US English actor Matthew Goode is most often recognized—and regularly loathed—for playing Ozymandias in Zack Snyder's dedicatedly dark superhero movie Watchmen. Even before the movie came out, many fans of Alan Moore's comic decried Goode's casting, declaring he was not physically suited for the role. At the time, Goode's response was less than eloquent.

Captain America's Red-Faced Nazi And 6 Other Blatant Historical Lies Captain America's Red-Faced Nazi And 6 Other Blatant Historical Lies
The American people need to know Nazis weren’t led by some Satanic warmonger one step left from Jeff Goldblum’s fly. I’d like to think the best of the population, that the average person could sift through these blows against veracity, but the truth is they won’t. Within decades, teachers will be showing this film at the expense of textbooks. Where does it stop?

Fixing Zack Snyder: Less Sucker Punch, More Budget Crunch Fixing Zack Snyder: Less Sucker Punch, More Budget Crunch
Once he's done with the Man of Steel, I'm dying to see Snyder handed $30 million and a shopping mail again, to prove he's still a director who knows how to get out of his own way, who knows his great talents are sometimes even better when we don't see quite so much of them.

Zack Snyder Won't Shoot Anything Without His Wife Zack Snyder Won't Shoot Anything Without His Wife
There are only three different kinds of spouses in the creative world. Those that have no interest in getting involved, those that want to help but get in the way and those that are unquantifiable assets. Unfortunately, most people have a largely negative perception of hands on spouses because of Yoko Ono’s assumed severing of The Beatles.
