Movie Review: Batman V Superman – Dawn of Justice

OMG! The reactions to this flick have been brutal, weird, funny, unexpected and so so varied, that we didn’t know where to start. Some love it, some hate, some absolutely loved it, while some are searching for Zack Snyder to bash him up.

Here’s what Cinema Paradizo thinks, and we are keeping it real short. Because – we are very ANGRY!

The most difficult thing about all this is accepting the hard fact that this flick isn’t a good movie. But once that hurdle has been crossed, it’s as if the floodgates have opened. Suddenly, nothing is sacred. All your hopes and dreams were destroyed an hour ago in a giant CG fireball and it left you angrier than a recently orphaned Bruce Wayne.

Batman v Superman is not so much a superhero movie as it is a story about two mamma’s boys measuring the length of their capes, finding that they disagree, and proceeding to poke each other with threats of ‘you wanna go first?’ for a solid two-and-a-half hours.

The film has its moments, but there comes a point when you can’t justify it to yourself any longer. Too much time is spent on building up to the clash of the titans, only for the movie to pull a fast one on you when ‘fight night’ finally rolls around. Ben Affleck’s one note performance doesn’t help.

Christian Bale would still have been a better choice. Henry Cavill manages to make Kal-El edgier this time, but in doing so, loses the character’s inherent humanity.Jesse Eisenberg plays Luthor like a psychotic version of his Mark Zuckerberg character from The Social Network…All in all, a forgettable super hero adventure.
