Watchmen can't save everyone

The bad news? An early review of the new Watchmen movie sucks. (grammatical typo, but I'm leaving it)

The good news? The reviewer has never read the original graphic novel and can't even find the humor in the subtle ironies. I mean, superheroes (costumed avengers) who have no real powers? A superhero named Rorschach? And his costume is a constantly changing Rorschach inkblot? Genius! And the reviewer doesn't comprehend how apropos the political satire is to today's current geo-global politics (i.e. Cold Wars with more than just Russia, war being good for business, mass genocide for the greater good, ethnic cleansing).
