Now that I think about it, the ending in the movie is a bit more crappy than the one in the graphic novel, but I still think it works in the end. You should really read the comic. :O

The whole "enemy nations laying down their arms to fight a common enemy" thing works really well in the book. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I from what I've heard they pretty much fucked the ending completely, so I'm not surprised it made less sense.

The book ending makes infinitely more sense.

Not so much "based on" as "the entire comic, word for word." It was pretty cool, although it was kind of lame that they only had one guy doing the voices. I watched it so that it would be fresh in my mind when I go see the movie tomorrow. That way, I have more to nitpick and complain about

I'm really excited for the Black Freighter DVD, though.

True, but both endings still work, I think.

[spoiler]

Giant ass alien squid appearing and the world coming together to investigate its sources doesnt make sense at all out of context. In context, it is still far-fetched considering the lack of alien squids at anytime before then. At least in the movie, there is the fact that Manhattan is working with Ozy to develop technology using his own powers throughout, and then he turns around and uses it to destroy cities.

Um, what? The whole point of the squid is that it IS something no one's ever seen before. It's terrifying, it's alien, and it's completely unexplained. That's the reason why the US and Russia are willing to end hostilities: it's something so utterly preposterous that they have no choice but to cooperate.

If that really happened, wouldn't Russia use that alien attack to push forward even more on the US? :O

spoilers too i guess:

i havent seen the movie yet either, but Rorschach was my favorite, he was definitely the deepest character and had the biggest impact on the story and depending on how you view the ending, gets the last laugh. ozy was too full of himself and lost in his own world, doc manhattan was too robotic, and nite owl was just boring. but rorschach and the comedian were definitely the coolest characters.

I really wish they would've done more with the psychiatrist and Rorshcach.
