From Zac Snyder, the director of 300, and based on one of the best comics of all time by Alan Moore (V for Vendetta) and Dave Gibbons comes a complex, multi-layered mystery adventure.

The film is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" - which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union - is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes.

As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion - a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers - Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity, but who is watching the Watchmen?

Industry Reviews

'Snyder's film is a breath-taking epic, a compelling thriller and an ensemble character piece, far beyond our expectations of the genre.' - Simon Foster, sbs.com.au

'Watchmen isn't your typical caper flick filled with kickass effects and gunfire and no premise.' - Candice Frederick, Reel Talk Online

'Those unfamiliar with the work may be completely bewildered, but stick with it - this is a bold and uncompromising take on one of the genre's sacred cows that stands up to repeat viewings.' - Jamie Russell, Radio Times
