i don't hate veidt. he was misguided sure, but he wasn't your standard comic book villain. and sure he may have been evil, but you can't deny that his motives were good. you could probably say that he is an anti-villain, to mirror Rorchachs role as anti-hero.
even the characters don't hate him in the end, apart from rorchach, perhaps it is only rorschach fans who hate veidt. an interesting thought.
That's a great Idea!
I'm totally obsessed with Rorschach
so I hated Adrian the virst time I saw the movie....
But in time I understood that he did what he thought was necesarry.....but besides the so called God Complex,
I'm not sure if he thought this would end war as it is or just end the thought of a nuclear war at the time?
'Cus he sure understood that self-destruction is human nature....so he therefor just wanted to postpone it.
And I'm sure as hell that there were other ways to do that.
Though I don't see them.
All of them in different mesure have the HERO complex...they feel like they have a duty to other people duty to use their potencials completely.
And his potentials are amazing, bigger than anyone else's.....so imagine what pain it brings him to accept that there's nothing he can do when the world around you is falling apart.
Like Rorschach did, in a way.He gave up on humanity.
We are simple folk, we can't really do much if we wanted to.
That's not easy to live with.
And not reasonable to condemn.
