Ending With a Whimper, Not a Bang

The Watchmen poster campaign has mostly kept a coherent visual style and used well the fascinating characters. This poster gets all of those characters together and keeps the same visual style, so I guess I can’t complain about it too much. Still, it’s sort of a dull ending for a campaign that had a great source material (composed of still images even) and that did manage to produce a couple of terrific posters.

The main problem is that is a uninspiring, run-of-the-mill “team” design for a movie whose top selling point is stunning and one of a kind visuals. The creativity and energy that is expected to be seen in the actual movie is missing, even if some of the elements of it (the background and the character designs) are there. And that is just too bad.
