no way dude, watchmen is the best comic book adaptation I have seen to date. Read the book too. It's nothing short of a masterpiece. 2nd best comic book adaptation is hell boy imo.
I think I know where you went wrong though. You were trying to wrap your head around the plot without understanding what's important here.The book or the movie for that matter is about psychology of a masked crusader first, plot second... in fact you wont even understand the plot fully without understanding the background and psychology of each character. Understand that the movie follows the book almost word for word, minus few omission because of time constraints... and the book... well lets just say it was not an easy ready... but in the end more gratifying then anything I've read in a very long time.
