Jackie Earle Haley,
Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own.

"Soul Survivor," set in Toronto's Jamaican community, could have been a revealing film with an unusual setting. What it turns out to be is a routine street drama, with faded color, grainy photography, and stereotypical characterizations. It sheds no light on genuine human relationships among these people, only standard action-type fare with run-of-the-mill involvements. There is nothing new or enlightening about this drama, only more of the same. While the cast is talented, though not particularly attractive, it is limited by its mundane and unoriginal script and direction. In all, a disappointment.
