"Excellent companion to the movie"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Tales of the Black Freighter is a dark, morbid story of a man's descent to madness, full of corpses and death and symbolism. It parallels Ozymandias' journey to the same place.

The Under the Hood documentary is Hollis Mason's take on the events of the world of Watchmen. It is self-indulgent and a little pretentious, but so is Mason.

This is a companion to the Watchmen DVD. If you are a Watchmen fan and you have the DVD of the movie then you must get this set. If you aren't and don't then do not buy this one.

"Depressingly bad...."
1 stars"

If you are into corpses and death then this is for you.....on the other hand if that doesn't float your boat, steer cleer and give a wide berth.

This little beauty sails the bloodthirsty seas of self indulgent morbid nonsense. Full of death and despair and dead bodies this is a delightfully cheery little cartoon. Wow.....the anime style animation just lends to the banality of the subject matter, cheaply done with a morbidly dull storyline to boot.

Avoid like swine flu......

Description

They’re in the book. And on this disc. From the director of Watchmen and 300 come two tales from the celebrated graphic novel that do not appear in the extraordinary Watchmen Theatrical Feature.

Tales of the Black Freighter (featuring the voice of 300s Gerard Butler) brings to strikingly animated life the novels richly layered story-within-a-story, a daring pirate saga whose turbulent events may mirror those in the Watchmens world. Stars from the Watchmen movie team in the amazing live-action/CGI Under the Hood, based on Nite Owls powerful first-hand account of how the hooded adventurers came into existence.

Two fan-essential stories. One place to watch the excitement. Watching the Watchmen begins here.
