Who will watch “Watchmen”?

The reviews of the film adaptation are coming in and so far agree in two ways: They don’t like it, and they give away almost every plot detail, right up to the end.

Cases in point:

Anthony Lane in The New Yorker

 The Hollywood Reporter


So if you haven’t read the comic and plan to see the movie, don’t read the reviews. If you plan to see the movie and risk enjoying it, don’t read the reviews.
