New Watchmen Webisode
Exclusive: Rorschach's mask

06 February 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

The eleventh Watchmen webisode is now online, and this one is focused on Rorschach's character and, in particular, how the filmmakers accomplished the effect of his perpetually shifting inkblot mask.

For those who haven't read the graphic novel (whoever you are at this point) Rorschach is a vigilante with a particularly strong sense of right and wrong and a particular lack of mercy or willingness to compromise. He wears a mask that resembles a Rorschach test, hence the name.

Watchmen is, say it with us now, out on March 6. If we were any more excited we might fall over.

RE: Rorchach a midget?
L: davieboy isn't rorschach ment to be this very tall terrifing character? in the webisodes he appears to very short, shorter than the guys who he is beating up. Personnaly i don't think rorchach looks threatning enough sp; In the comic books he was only a a few inches tall. on the cinema screen he'll be 50 foot high (depending on the screen size) More

RE: Rorchach a midget?
No he was always a short man who boosted his height with inserts in his shoes, it's explained when he's arrested after being set up. More

Yes
The backstory is important to all of the characters. To leave those out you would not have a movie. Snyder looks to have hit the money with the evidence so far! As long as the prison sequence with Rorschach and the dwarf makes it i'll be happy! More

Looks great
I thought things like Rorshach's childhood, or his psychiatrist, or Hollis Mason scenes would be cut, but Snyder seems to be doing his best to fit everything in. That's all good, but i hope that doesn't mean insanely fast editing, with him trying to get in as many of Gibbons' panels recreated in film and as many boxes ticked as possible to the detriment of the movie.

very cool!
getting Rorschach right, both in character and design is essential to this film. Looks like they're on the right track. More

RE: New Watchmen Webisode
That was one of the best webisodes yet, good stuff. It also gave away a few more of the sequences that will definitely be in the movie, I'm glad to see that they seem to be showing a lot of Rorschach's childhood, I was really hoping they wouldn't skimp on that. Four Weeks to go More

Hmmm
Whether it turns out to be a disgrace to the comic or not remains to be seen but Snyder really does have the style sorted. More
