As far as a graphic novel turned into a film goes, Watchmen looks like it’ll set the bar for future adaptations…There’s an enormous amount of attention to the source material, without it trying to be a shot for shot remake. It’s also not chock full of 10 minute car chase scenes, or overdone CGI fight scenes. Based on what we saw, it looks like Watchmen won’t have the frenetic pace of a Spider-Man movie, but will take time with the storytelling.
