WATCHMEN is a fantasy film, set in an alternate America in which the Vietnam War was won, Nixon was elected for a third term and costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of society.

Violence

There are a number of scenes which emphasise strong detailed violence and its gory result. In one scene, a man is stabbed through the arm, with it forcefully twisted and broken as the knife is shown penetrating his arm and emerging from the other side. In another scene, a man is struck on the head with a meat cleaver followed by repeated bloody sight of the cleaver striking the head.

There is also an attempted rape scene, some strong language ('f**k') and sexual activity.
