Not particularly engaging
22 September 2013 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This short film was directed in 2001 by Paloma Baeza and it features one of Cillian Murphy's very early performances back when he was still pretty much unknown. Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later..." was released about a year afterward and turned him into a star. 12 years later, he's very much known to general audiences, but this film here is still his only writing credit to this day.

"Watchmen" deals with two days reporting a crime and they'd rather prefer staying anonymous while doing so. It's not a totally bad film, but I thought it came pretty short in terms of comedy and even shorter in terms of drama and the tension this film could have delivered with regard to the burglary parts. The dialogs were written and delivered convincingly though, but still it's only worth watching to hardcore fans of Mr. Murphy.
