I know that a lot of hardcore Watchmen fans really hated the film, and on the other side of the coin are the people who didn't read the comic and just didn't get the film at all.
I personally really loved the film a lot-- and I'm a fan of the original graphic novel as well.
It looks like Play Arts Kai are also fans of the movie because they'll be doing a line of action figures from the film, starting with the roguish Rorschach. I really like the edition of the scene specific hairspray "flamethrower".
