I saw it tonite with some buddies and was quite pleased. It didn't blow me away like Dark Knight, but then again the source material is totally different. It was a very layered and intricate movie, as close to the comic as you can get, which I guess is its strength and weakness at the same time. However I'm 90% sure if Snyder deviated from the comic in any significant manner, the fans and critics would be screaming murder. Overall I think it was pretty good...I'll prolly purchase the blu ray to get the extra material (the Black Pirate ship story, the other extra bits that were cut out).
And I don't know if this is a spoiler thing or not, but I'm going to disguise it anyways. Just highlight to read or skip or whatever. Be kind rewind.
[The thing I found the most surprising/delightful was the soundtrack! I really liked it. And I especially liked the opening montage set to Bob Dylan. I think that whole sequence was the best part of the movie. Followed closely by the prison riot scene. Hee!

Rorschach was just a bad mother. I couldn't have asked for a better Rorschach. I definitely give Jackie Earle Haley an A++. He was able to make him not look so Howdie Doodie.]
Yup I agree, the soundtrack was awesome! Everything from "All Along the Watchtower" to "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" (80s classic!), the soundtrack was kickass
and speaking of zack snyder, I was on youtube and randomly came across this
