Watchmen [2009] - Intro

Follow by Email
Watchmen's opening credits. Not to be confused with the upcoming HBO show based on the same source material.


Nikodimos Triaridis : I don't care what anyone thinks of Zach Snyder or his work, you have to admit, this scene is unfuckingbelievable.

Trisket : It's a shame Magneto couldn't stop the Comedian from shooting JFK.

Chapter Master Valrak : 00:03 is Bruce Wayne's parents, right?

Gabe Zia : No wonder movies don't have opening credit sequences anymore, it'd be impossible to top this.

malak as : 4:53 Notice how the credit names are slightly altered through the camera. Magnificent.

Mighty Raccoon : 4:43 Rest In Peace David Bowie....... :(

Jakob Sanchez : This is the best version of "The Times They Are A-Changin'" I can find on YouTube.

GSS765 : Zack Snyder is a genius. The visuals of this movie are still stunning 8 years later....

Hakeem Alhakeem : Watchmen is a masterpiece :)

John Ivan Taro : 2:14 It's sad that a random John cared more about Rorschach than his mom did.

gods laws on man peace : i do not care what anybody says but Castro looks bad ass 3:44

Diabetic_T-Rex : Easily the best opening in movie history.

IronPiedmont1996 : 2:30 That's a very good Kennedy they got for this movie. Seriously, that's a great choice of actor.

Tommy Cipriani : Zack Snyder's Watchmen will stand the test of time as underrated, but one of the greatest superhero films of all time. Watchmen is more relevant today than it was almost ten years since it's been released. Say what you want about Snyder, the man is ahead of his time. Darren Aronofsky loved this film, Doctor Strange director Scot Derrickson called Snyder's Watchmen "Ahead of it's time masterpiece, the Blade Runner of comic book cinema", Christopher Nolan told Snyder this movie was released "too soon", and James Cameron has said Snyder has invented a "new cinematic language". The creator of the first two Terminator's and the man who brought Aliens 2 to say you have invented a new cinematic language, is the ultimate compliment. Talented people know how great of an artist Snyder is, unlike these fuckboys on the internet who don't know shit even if it hit their face with it.

Anthony Sanchez : I noticed recently (and by that I mean the past 2-3 years) that this film picked up traction again, especially with the director's cut. It's good to see the resurgence and re-discovery that this film deserves.

Jazzmery Illidari : Batman's father killed JFK

M4L Animations : This is the best intro to a movie ever in my opinion

Ninja Is Cool : 1:11 that sailor was the original guy that kissed the girl

Jacob Heine : I don't care what anyone says.....I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

Jack Van Kirk : 4:29 I just now realized Dr. Manhattan is holding a camera

BabyBoomerChannel : The Watchmen opening credits are more interesting than the whole, damn JL movie.

Movie Geek : This is probably one of the most amazing opening credit sequences of all time.

Cherry Bomb Studios : 3:52 You know what would be pretty dark? If those MPs shot the hippie right when she puts the flower in the barrel. 4:04 Oh...damn...

Vicious Zero : The first five minutes and I was already at awe at how epic this movie was.

Luciano Gug : How 1 intro is better than most movies in cinemas now.

Ben McDonald : It’s really amazing looking at how much has changed from the Minutemen to the Watchmen, the Minutemen, when it comes to their looks and how they acted when they stopped crime was very reminiscent of the superheroes of the 40’s and 50’s, very bright, colorful, and the poster child for good, clean role models, like the kind of heroes that would tell a little kid to look both ways when crossing the street or always eat your vegetables, the kind who would stop a robber and be like “It’s all in the days work chief” then fast forward to the Watchmen, who are much more like the superheroes of today, more human, flawed, darker, and not always doing things in a clean fashion, the kind that would tell you “Sometimes you have to fight dirty to get the job done” and that big contrast is really well realized, which is also why the song fits so perfectly with the sequence

Damien Johnson : honestly the world didn't deserve this epic interpretation of one of comicdoms best novels

N : This intro alone is better than all the marvel movies. Way more of a story

Make Way : This was really dark and messed up.

Red Hood : It's very sad how the Minutemen all gone out, they didn't deserve what happened to them °^°

Nostalgic memories : most underated movie of all time, such a shame it didnt get awards it deserved... it should be example how to make comics movies legit and awesome... visuals, dialogues, lenght, acting, intro and ending everything was perfect.

ihsan halim : Come gather ’round people Wherever you roam And admit that the waters Around you have grown And accept it that soon You’ll be drenched to the bone If your time to you is worth savin’ Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone For the times they are a-changin’ Come writers and critics Who prophesize with your pen And keep your eyes wide The chance won’t come again And don’t speak too soon For the wheel’s still in spin And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’ For the loser now will be later to win For the times they are a-changin’ Come senators, congressmen Please heed the call Don’t stand in the doorway Don’t block up the hall For he that gets hurt Will be he who has stalled There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’ It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin’ Come mothers and fathers Throughout the land And don’t criticize What you can’t understand Your sons and your daughters Are beyond your command Your old road is rapidly agin’ Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand For the times they are a-changin’ The line it is drawn The curse it is cast The slow one now Will later be fast As the present now Will later be past The order is rapidly fadin’ And the first one now will later be last For the times they are a-changin’ Copyright © 1963, 1964 by Warner Bros.

Klaus Fawkes : Best intro ever! A masterpiece!

Miguel Ayala : I'm a huge MARVEL fan and I've got to say that this film is one of my favorite DC films, next to the dark Knight trilogy. When i saw this film for the first time at the laundry mat, i thought it was just a super hero film from another studio. I was laughing because the suits looked weird. Then a few years ago, when Suicide Squad premiered, i saw a video of a WATCHMEN easter egg, i looked up online and learned that Watchmen is a DC film. My mind was blowned that heroes with funny suits belonged to them. So i watched it again this year, many months ago, my second time watching it i learned about what the film was and is about. Even heroes have problems. And it became an instant favorite. Have it on DVD today.

Skyline 2942 : Who came here after watching the Justice League intro?

The Joker : Say what you want about Zack Snyder, but his intros are masterpieces!

thebluedragon07 : Hmm, I've just realized that at 1:31, it looks like their own version of Da Vinci's Last Supper.

Tom Guam : The greatest opening credits of all time

Los Carnales : 2018. Still think this is a great movie

Eddy Que : zack snyder can't tell story he's only good for visuals... lol this whole scene tells A LOT of stories and carries so much emotional weight on it... say what you want about snyder or watchmen rogert EBERT called it "a powerful experience" yeah LMAO EBERT LIKED A SNYDER FILM well LOVED more like it

MrMortsnarg : So much about this opening is fantastic, even to the little references like Nite Owl saving the Wayne's, and The Comedian being in Judas' place at Sally's retirement party.

SEaster IslanderS : An amazing intro to an incredibly and criminally underrated film.

Left Hand : The loser now will be a winner later. Zack knew the critics wouldn't understand. The wheels are still spinning and I know that this movie will stand the test of time! Don't critisize what you can't understand.

Jesse Hernandez : Best intro ever......end of story. This intro to a movie is beyond astonishing and is the most perfect way to start a great movie. Watchmen is so underrated as Snyder shouldve received much more credit for his hard work. This is also by far Snyders best project to date.

WesternWOLF : You know how people are making really cool Logan, GOTG 2, Justice League, and Wonderwoman styles trailer edits to other movies? I want someone to make a Watchmen intro edit to another movie like Civil War, X Men, Etc.

Arkham Gamer : Ahhh, my favorite intro of all time, Watchmen is a classic in my opinion.

A Bear with phone 408 : I'm literally at this moment getting the Comedian's pin tattooed on my arm.

Mr.gentelman : I don’t know why but I genuinely cannot get over this movie intro, there’s something bout it that’s just so good!!

Hai Anh Bui Thi : 1:09 : notice how the two women next to them stopped smiling
