    THIS IS NOT A MOVIE FOR KIDS!!! Honestly, I’m surprised it’s only rated R. This is the strongest R rated movie I’ve ever seen. I am in the military and have seen quite a bit, but this movie is just completely over the top with gratuitous and graphic violence. Show me one time or even just let me hear the sound and I get it, but I don’t need to actually see someone getting hacked in the head repeatedly with a clever and see blood spatter everywhere to know what is going on. Nor do I need to see an inmate get both his arms cut off with a metal grinder. If you’re into gore, mixed with soft core porn, and a weak story line that tries to be philosophical (but fails on so many levels) then this is your movie. I went into this movie with high expectations. I loved 300 for it’s breakthroughs in film technique and picture style. The violence in 300 was palatable to me because it was done with comic book like textures and colors. Intelligent viewers understood what we were seeing and didn’t need it to be spelled out for us. The textures in 300 were completely void in Watchmen. It is in-your-face up-close-and-personal. To say the violence, gore, and sex is “graphic” is an understatement of HUGE proportions. The previews you see on tv are not even close to showing what this movie is really like. Parents, please take my advice and do not take your children to this movie. It is a VERY adult movie and not in any way a child’s comic book super hero movie. While you’re at it, you may want to think twice about seeing it yourself. I was thoroughly unimpressed with this movie. I hope the makers of 300 realize that they have done, and can do, much better than what they are currently offering moviegoers with Watchmen. That’s my two cents. Take it for what it’s worth.

    Thank you, FM. I am seeing the film tomorrow and will make sure to be very clear in my review about the sex and violence it contains. I appreciate your comments, which will be very helpful to parents as a reminder that this is not “Iron Man” or “Fantastic Four.”
