"They don't punch through walls." -> proven wrong "Well that's no true wall" You also complain about "stupid one-liners" in superhero movies, ignoring this: Comparison: Not only does Snyder change this kill to be much more violent for some reason, he also gave Rorschach a fucking one-liner. And that's basically the point, the movie is fine when it sticks to the comics. The parts that are faithful to the source material are the saving grace. It goes down the drain when Snyder gets carried away and introduces what he thinks is cool. Gratuitous slow-motion, exaggerated violence (I realize the comic isn't exactly tame but the film takes it into exploitation territory), "stupid one-liners" and of course the obligatory Big No! I mean, why? And remember the prison fight? Daniel and Laurie gleefully smiling at each other before and after slow-mo-punching their way through a hallway of goons is so out of character it hurts.
