Netflix Review: Watchmen

Synopsis: Semi-superhuman vigilantes fight crime in an alternate 80's timeline during rising nuclear tension between USSR and the U.S.
Pros: Looks well. Story is pretty solid.
Cons: A lot of voice over. Music choice seems a little weird.
Oveview: I like the concept and the story. It was less cheesy than I though it would be and more violent than I thought it would be. However, the main narration can be a bit much as his voice is raspy and dark, like if Batman (not Bruce Wayne) was narrating the film. My only other drawback is that the music choice seems weird to me, as it felt like the soundtrack to Forrest Gump during the first half of the film. Despite this... I did enjoy it.
