“Fearing the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the man of steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat, Doomsday, is created by Lex Luthor. It’s up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis.”
After what seemed like 10 years of waiting, we are finally here. The level of hype, that pre-dated this movie couldn’t get any bigger, and expectations for this movie couldn’t have been any higher either. So after all of that, could this movie live up to the hype? Nope, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth anything. Batman v Superman, is a movie that I didn’t see coming, its totally not what I expected, and in that, there is good and bad. First, the good. This movie is visually stunning, just absolutely a wonder to behold. This is also one of the more comically accurate movies we’ve had in a long time. And that, to be honest, is both a positive and negative. More on the positive side, the action in this movie is also absolutely amazing. This is the best, THE BEST, the Batman has ever looked on screen while kicking ass, by a long shot. Then we got the introduction of Wonder Woman, who kicked just as much ass, and looked just as great doing it. To finally see that character realised on the big screen like she was, was really something to see (was great to hear the entire audience cheer for her). The Lex Luthor character is really probably going to be the love it or hate it stand out of this movie. His character has some practices and makes some decisions that are either going to really bother you, or you’ll be fine with it. Another part of this movie, that is going to divide fans, is the introduction of Doomsday. I’m not sure I really love that way the Doomsday character came to be, but it could have been worse for sure. Also, some of the motivations for some of the characters, don’t always really hit you when and where it should, but I do think there is more good and than bad here. Sidetone, I was getting pretty damn giddy when the Flash made his cameo, seeing as thats my favourite superhero of all time, really nice to see him get a good spot in there. So all in all i think Batman v Superman is a bit of a let down, that was going to be inevitably so, but I do think it was delivered the right setup up for this universe going forward, and I’m pretty to excited to see what comes next.
Review Score : 8 out of 10
