Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
Let me just say, I did NOT like this movie. SO if you are going to be highly offended that I didn’t like it, then don’t read on.
First of all, I am a Superman fan. And a Batman fan. So putting them against each other was not something I enjoyed.
Second, the movie was SO random. The story line was all over the place. Is it supposed to be Batman Vs Superman? Because that took about 5 minutes of the movie. They fought then decided to work together. Real intense stuff.
The real villain of the movie was Lex Luther. Jesse Eisenberg did an awesome job creating Lex into this twitchy, psychotic, Heath Ledger as the Joker type person. He was almost creepy to watch.
I thought the movie was dark. I didn’t like that they tried to make Superman into an anti-hero. He’s a hero. He is good. He is perfection.
I didn’t like Batman’s moody self loathing state. It took WAY too long for him to start acting on something.
Then, add in this alien creature that is invincible. Oh, and Wonder Woman. Because she was totally needed. And Lois Lane who is always getting into trouble. And BAM, you have 3 hours of stuff on a screen.
I don’t normally hate movies. I have a high tolerance for “stuff on a screen”. But this just didn’t cut it for me. I’d much rather watch Superman by himself. Henry Cavill is always a reason to keep watching (The Man from U.N.C.L.E. anyone?)
What were your thoughts on the movie?
