An interesting start
21 October 2019 | by rudradebrajSee all my reviews

I never read the comics. Only saw the zack snyder film. I am writing this after watching the pilot.

Watchmen is about a different world than ours. Here the police force wears masks to cover their identity. In the pilot the main threat was a white supremacist group in rorshach masks. If the movie i watched closely followed the comics i would say this series is going to be different. There are many easter eggs and callbacks though. The pilot revolves around the main characters finding out about the threat and gearing up to stand against it. The way that happens kept my intrigue. They didn't let the story fall flat, there was always some momentum. It had some aptly handled tense scenes. Not too flashy action scenes but they had a punch, held interest for me. Acting was as good as it can be. There wasn't any scene that called for amazing, stand out acting. The actors and actresses did the best that can be done. There were competent character interactions inbetween. Also good tease for things to come. So, all over i wasn't bored at all. Along with the satisfying character interaction and up to the mark action and tense scenes, i was enterntained. I was hooked enough to want to see what would come next. Would definitely check out the next episode. The production is really good. Aesthetic is eye cathing. I liked how it's edited, i specially liked some transitions. The music is very well produced. There's a synth track i would like to get my hands on. So, an interesting pilot.
