Watchmen TV Series Review - The Blue Hu-Man
Updated: Jul 26, 2020
For some reason i put this off for a while, and with good shows drying up quickly a revisit of this was on the cards. After watching this, i now repent on not watching it earlier. HBO continues to produce quality result and this one is no different. Damon Lindelof (The Lost) pulled off a stunning remix of the original iconic superheroes comic book (Listed in All-TIME 100 Novels) in his own way. Its dark and diabolical in every sense. Its goes very deep into subject varying from racial discrimination, mythology, sci-fiction and violence which we might not have seen or experienced earlier. With some interesting subplots and character driven development, the director pulled off a stunning concept of legacy in the blood. Regina King leads the pack. Watchmen skillfully depicts the complicated topics with a different vision altogether. It wont be an over statement if i say its a genre-defining show, breaking new grounds. The journey is unexpected and courageous. Some of the tracking shots are complimented stunningly by the BGM score. The songs being referenced and used is so timely and pitch perfect like an icing in the cake. The nested narrative may start off with bit of complexity but in the end every layer is peeled off and concluded beautifully. Episode 6 and Episode 8 are the some of the best imaginative shot episodes i have seen in recent past. In the end, it created an impressive bristling identity on it own. A high recommendation from my end.
Verdict - 4/5(Hooded Justice)
