Watchmen Gets the Worst Review Ever

by nathanbloch   April 06, 2009 at 4:14PM  |  Views: 105

A 24-year-old man from Eugene, Oregon recently made the boldest statement a person can make about a movie, during a movie, when he committed suicide during a showing of Watchmen at a Regal Cinemas theater.

The man has not yet been identified, but suffice it to say he was not enjoying the film. Either that or it was the best thing he'd ever seen and he didn't think anything in life would ever come close to it. One way or another it was a traumatic thing for the other ten people in the theater to experience and a tragic coda to the film's weaker-than-expected performance.

About midway through the film some of the moviegoers told the manager they heard a “popping” noise like a gunshot.  A 24-year-old man was found in the rear of the auditorium with a gunshot wound to the head. Police say the man shot himself and was dead when they arrived. The patron closest to the man was sitting two rows away.

It's a horrible thing when someone takes their own life, and even more horrible when this is in any way motivated by a movie, something that's supposed to uplift us and distract us from our problems. Watchmen certainly isn't an uplifting film, and this loss of life is just more evidence of that.
