This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   Before going to Antarctica to see Adrian, Rorschach tells Dan he must check his mail. He drops his journal into the mail. He drops it through the slot of the New Frontiersman office.
   After they crash on Antarctica, Dan and Rorschach ride on Hoverbikes to get to Veidt's lair. They just walk.
   Adrian brings his three assistants to the vivarium to toast their accomplishments. He poisons them and then opens the glass so their bodies are frozen. He has several workers with him. He poisons them, and then leaves as the reactor built by Dr. Manhattan vaporizes them.
   Dan and Rorschach find Adrian and he is eating. He sees their reflection in his gold serving tray. He attacks Rorschach and whips the bowl lid at Dan hitting him in the mouth. Adrian is watching a bank of televisions and Rorschach attacks and Adrian beats him off. He throws a chair at Dan.
   After beating up Dan and Rorschach, Adrian reveals his plan. He created a monstrous life form and teleportation. The life form looked like a giant centipede. He planned to teleport the monster to New York. But the teleportation didn't work and the item would explode on arrival. He wanted humanity to fear an alien attack. He used a psychic's mind to program the explosion to cause everyone to have nightmares about it. He replicated Jon's power. He wanted to use it to make people think that Jon was responsible for killing millions of people. They would unite against him.
