And liked it. It's not perfect, but I don't think you could make a movie that mirrors the comic and succeeds in any way as a movie. The mediums are just too different. As it is, it's like a talking dog with a lisp. Yes, it has a lisp, but it's still a freaking *talking dog*.

Like some other's the thing I missed the most was the newstand vignettes, not just the vendor and the kid, but all of the characters that cross paths there - getting to know them and their day to day problems adds a great deal to the impact of the ending in the comic.

As for the end, it doesn't bother me too much. Basically any ending other than "talk Dr. Manhattan into periodically teleporting all the world's nuclear weapon program related materials into the sun" makes no logical sense anyway.
