Batman V Superman brings two of the strongest heroes together but not in the way fans think
Batman V Superman is a movie that tons of fans have waited a long time to see. Many times work began on a film that brought these two heroes together for a grudge match that would change both of them forever, but sadly it always fell apart. It has been seen in animated form, but never in live action until now. This writer was able to see this movie early and here is what he thought of it.
It has been almost two years since Superman (Henry Cavill) had his battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) that damaged many parts of Metropolis. The loss of life and extensive damage left many people feeling angry and helpless, including Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). After this horrible event Batman decides that Superman is a threat to humanity and it is up to him to end his reign on Earth. Meanwhile Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) has his own dastardly plans for the Man of Steel. How far will Batman go to stop Superman? Which of his own rules will he break along the way? And how will this battle affect both of them once it is all over?
Batman V Superman is a pretty good movie. As much as people think that Ben Affleck is a bad choice to play Batman when they see this movie they will be impressed. It is also an interesting take on Lex Luthor, not necessarily bad just not the direction this writer was expecting. The rest of the cast do a splendid job in this movie and no role is there just to fill space. The movie does have some surprises that are pretty cool that fans will be happy to see.
Batman V Superman does have a few flaws though. It is not really the movie that the trailers let on. There is a lot happening here, and therefore it is not always easy to follow what is going on sometimes. The movie also made a huge error that is sure to annoy some fans and for this writer it hurt his image of this movie a tad. Overall it is not an awful movie but at the same time is not as great as it could have been.
Batman V Superman has earned 7/10. It has a ton of action, some great costumes and sets and a few things nobody will see coming which make it for a pretty good picture. At the same time it is missing elements that had they added them or fine tuned this film a bit more it would definitely have made it worthy of a higher score. Most fans will be happy with the end result, but there will be those who will like it but not be fully satisfied with how things go.
If you are a fan of darker superhero films, then you will want to check this one out. If you are like either of these heroes you should definitely run out and see this movie. Batman V Superman comes out this Friday.
