Not the most original response, but Rorschach is definitely my favorite character, with Nite Owl getting pretty close. I think the most memorable moment for me was originally the prison scene where Rorschach burns the other prisoner and says “I’m not trapped in here with you, you’re trapped in here with me”. After re-watching, though, I would say the scene where both Rorschach and Nite Owl have a great friendship moment after the prison break stands out to me now, since it really speaks to how both heroes differ on how to dispense justice, but respect each other enough to care deeply about the other. I disagree with the decision at the end, mostly because I don’t think it would really fix things in the long run. Either way, movie or graphic novel, it feels like using a scapegoat “evil” to draw the countries together, would only be a temporary solution. The fear of Dr. Manhattan/Aliens would only lessen the longer time goes on, then global issues/disputes would resume like normal. As an adaptation, I would say that Watchmen is really good at trying to portray all of the events, but it fails in some ways by sensationalizing some aspects of the story. Comparing the movie to the novel feels like comparing the 2010 Clash of the Titans to the 1981 version. Both tell essentially the same story, but one feels like it relies on modern technology more than it really needs to. Overall, I would give the movie an 7.5-8 out of 10.
