Watchmen Hits Theaters - Review & Movie Trailer

The spring box-office season got its unofficial start this weekend with Billy Crudup in "Watchmen".

Based on Alan Moore's famous comic book series, "Watchmen" is a story set in an alternative 1985, where the world is edging closer to the brink of nuclear war, and a plot to eliminate a band of retired crime fighters is under way.

But by whom? And why?

It is up to these ex-crime fighters to investigate the plot that seems to go beyond the unbelievable.

The story begins with Nixon in the White House, the Cold War growing hotter, and the Watchmen sitting on the sidelines. Dan Dreiberg (Patrick Wilson) has retired his Nite Owl costume; Laurie Jupiter (Malin Akerman) no longer dresses in spandex; and Adrian Veidt (Matthew Goode) in now a businessman.

Looming over everyone is Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup), a nuclear scientist who's been transformed into a godlike figure - radiant, omnipresent and disinterested. Together, they must find who is trying to eliminate them.

Along the way, they uncover a plot that shakes the very foundation of our way of life.

The film is rated R for strong graphic violence, sexuality, nudity and language. There are lengthy sex scenes and a lot of nudity, as Dr. Manhattan never wears any clothes. The soundtrack is powerful and syncs well with the plot.
