Watchmen: Opening Credits

"Watchmen" was an amazing experience! The film was dynamic, epic and a seemless transition from page to screen. Sure things were missing and Synder took a few liberties with aspects of the script, but for a one-shot movie, it's the best we are going to get. Zack Synder was able to deliver a faithful adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons historical work.

One of my favorite parts to Watchmen was the opening title sequence that flashed through the era of the minutemen to current times in the story. If you have not seen the "Watchmen" and do not want to see anything prior to going in, SKIP THIS ARTICLE. The video below is the opening title sequence. All of the images are flawless and come screaming right off the page and on to the screen in vivid fashion. Having the title sequence backed by Bob Dylan's "Times They are a Changing" really set the perfect tone to the film. Enjoy the opening sequence again below....

Update: Warner Brothers unfortunately removed the video, can't say I blame them. For those of you that missed it, guess your going to have to get your butt up and go see the film in it's entirety in theaters.

What say you? What was your favorite part of Watchmen? Strikeback...
