Sidewinder’s View: Watchmen (2009)

Years later, I still find this movie to be extremely entertaining.


I still deplore its ending.

Imagine a James Bond flick where the super-villain, during the big finale, turns out to be humanity’s savior…which suddenly turns Bond into a liability…whose extermination is required in order to achieve world peace.

And who can argue against world peace? Come on, now.

Talk about a sucker punch. Maybe that’s why Watchmen turned out to be one of those rare movies which opened north of $50 million and took longer than usual to hit the $100 million mark?
