This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   Dan, Laurie and Rorschach return to Dan's house to pack some things because they fear the police will come for them. Laurie goes into the living room, and Jon is there reading Nova Express. When the open the door to Archie, Jon is there waiting.
   When Laurie arrives on Mars she can't breath, and Jon points at her throat allowing her to breath. He creates a force field around her where she can breath.
   When Laurie realizes that the Comedian was her father she throws a snow globe at Dr. Manhattan's Mars construction causing it to crumble. Jon touches her and lets her see her past where she realizes Eddie was her father. She runs over and hammers it with her hand, causing it to break.
   A gang of thugs breaks into Hollis Mason's house after Rorschach is busted out of prison. They beat him to death. Later when Dan and Rorschach find out, Dan goes crazy. We don't see Hollis getting killed.
   Dan tries to access Adrian's computer and when it asks for a password he first tries Ramses. It doesn't work, so he tries Ramses II and it does. He first tries Ozymandias followed by Pharaohs. He sees a book about Ramses II and tries that successfully.
