WTF is Watchmen?

With Watchmen now in the cinemas Landline TV asks some people why it's so awesome.

I saw it last night and it was good, if not quite as awesome as I was expecting it to be. I think the main problem with it is that it felt a little bit thin compared to the comic, but I don't see how it would have been possible to have all the the richness of the comic in the movie, partly because the movie would have been extraordinarily long (and it's already close to three hours in length) and partly because the structure of the comic simply can't completely lend itself to film. The music was also distractingly obvious. That said, it's a good movie and it does justice to the comic--you'd have to be Alan Moore to be disappointed by it.
