As fans of Watchmen pray the movie is actually released in March - a lawsuit is brewing between Fox and Warner Bros. - at least one director has already seen the comic book adaption.

And he loves it.

Kevin Smith - who was invited to see the film at Zach Snyder’s invitation shortly after Comic-Con last month - has posted a rave review for it on his MySpace account. The writer/director, who's next film is Zack and Miri Make a Porno, wrote:

I saw Watchmen. It’s f---ing astounding. The Non-Disclosure Agreement I signed prevents me from saying much, but I can spout the following with complete joygasmic enthusiasm: Snyder and Co. have pulled it off.

Remember that feeling of watching Sin City on the big screen and being blown away by what a faithful translation of the source material it was, in terms of both content and visuals? Triple that, and you’ll come close to watching Watchmen.
