Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

What a movie!!!

First few things we need to know is the film stars Ben Affleck along with Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, so this might be a good film but there are people saying that it is just big but not fun! Let’s check this out then.

An editor dismissively remarks early on in the lumbering steamroller that nobody cares about Clark Kent taking on the Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Warner Bros. devoutly prays that this sentiment is not the case.  The Warner Bros studio has a great deal riding on this battle of culturally imperishable superheroes which is the launch pad for its proposed series of DC Extended Universe tent poles and they hope it will prove viable rivals to Marvel’s vaunted cinematic gold mine of comic book figures turned film franchises.

this dramatically dark and physically gigantic venture is estimated to need to haul in $1 billion at the very least to justify itself financially opening this weekend on roughly 4,000 screens domestically, 30,000 worldwide and physically gigantic venture is estimated to need to haul in $1 billion at the very least to justify itself financially and pave the way for the flood of WB/DC outings already set for release over the next four years. The film may well earn its keep with significantly stronger international than domestic results likely as well. The studio had to know what it was getting with director Zack Snyder that the film may be imposing but it’s not fun after Man of Steel three years ago.

The main issue facing the writers of a superhero smack down like this is concocting a reason why they have to fight each other given all the evil out there as well as coming up with a way to level the playing field when one hero is essentially immortal in this case and the other is just a really buff rich guy with a costume and lots of gizmos.

Chris Terrio of Argo and David S. Goyer are the screenwriters and they have sort of solved this by devising ways to make Superman more frequently vulnerable than he’s ever been before. The But the villain here which is Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor is so intensely annoying that you wish Batman and Superman would just patch up their differences and join forces to put the squirrelly rascal out of his and our misery very early on.

The story does take an epic and rangy perspective as the long setup jumps from one far-flung locale to another to establish pockets of evil while also dramatizing Bruce Wayne’s backstory and here conceived as seeing his parents gunned down in the street after emerging from a theater showing Excalibur.

Seemingly disconnected worldwide events as Metropolis being destroyed as a huge spacecraft with claws hangs overhead and Lois Lane on assignment in Africa, the criminals threatening wider destruction with a dirty bomb are mixed in with Bruce brooding over his place in the world and his legacy, to which his butler Alfred replies with perhaps the film’s best line ‘Even you’ve grown too old to die young.’
