T he world is a garbage fire in the most literal sense. At the time of writing, climate change is melting the polar ice caps, bringing unseasonable warmth in the middle of winter; Britain is careering towards a No Deal Brexit; and Donald Trump barely manages to go a day in the White House without having a tantrum. As such, nostalgia is on the up and up, as we look to the past to try and make sense of our present. Watchmen, the fourth Moore adaptation, arrived on screens after spending 23 years in development hell, with Terry Gilliam, Darren Aronofsky, Paul Greengrass and Tim Burton all having been attached at various stages. Although not the first R-rated superhero movie, Watchmen was arguably the most risky up to that point. With a hefty budget, a whopping minute runtime and a cast comprised of jobbing bit-part actors and relative unknowns, its release came at a time when superhero movies were growing in popularity but still largely considered the preserve of younger viewers. Additionally, the complexity of said characters, from the literally and figuratively blue Dr Manhattan to homicidal abuse victim Rorschach, required a certain deftness.
