Hello ladies and gentelnerds, and welcome to another (Spoiler Free) Movie Review. Today’s movie..
“BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE”
Now.. Just to be clear. I will not divulge in MAJOR spoilers! But, I will bring up certain aspects of the film, that those who are super sensitive to anything that could be considered a ‘Spoiler’ (Example: Lois Lane was naked in a tub taking a bath) Should be forewarned. I will be touching on those certain areas.. So you have been warned.
THE STORY: Taking place two years after the events of Man Of Steel. The world is still unsure of how to cope with a Superman. Batman’s brand of Justice takes a brutal step up to extreme. Lex Luthor is up to no good. And while all this is going on… Well.. To be honest.. A lot is going on! The story, at times, is very uneven. A lot of plot points are active and.. Lets just say, Zack Snyder is not the man for the job of coordinating such deep story aspects. It’s not a knock on the man.. But he didn’t do a great job at telling the story. However! The Story, at least what I can understand of it, Is really Good! And surprisingly a little fun at times. The most intriguing aspects of the story come from Batman’s side, and the little we get from Wonder Woman. Superman.. Is.. Unfortinutly a pawn! In more ways then one. Both actor AND character seem to just be there for show, while the plot circulates around him. Negatives aside.. The story is fun and intriguing.. But poorly executed.
Allow me to be the first to apologize to Ben Affleck… He.. Was a, DAMN Good Batman! I was very surprised by the gravitas he brought to the role. (I tip my hat to you sir.. Bravo!) Gal Gadot… Breathtaking! Unfortinutly, not given enough screen time. But once she was on.. Oh boy, was she ON!! Truly the major highlight of the third act. Jesse Esinberg’s Lex Luthor was… Interesting.. Unique.. A plesent surprise! The three people I worried about most.. Blew my mind! And, were the most entertaining parts of the film.
THE NEGATIVES/POSITIVES: Negatives- Poor Story structure, Very odd Editing, Too much, too soon, and too overstuffed! Not enough focus on the Batman/Superman relationship. Positives- Great Actors portraying great Characters. Action packed. As “Dark” as it is.. It’s Fun! And Visually beautiful.
OVERALL: Awesome! Honestly awesome! A truly good start to the DC Cinematic Universe. A little sloppy.. But a good solid start. In a previous blog post I said I wasn’t feeling the Hype for this movie or the DCCU… Thanks to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice… IM FEELING THE HYPE!!
I give “BATMAN v. SUPERMAN:DAWN OF JUSTICE” 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟8/10
