Hello everyone! 🙂
I’ve seen the film ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ at the cinema. I was wary about seeing this movie as I heard criticism about it beforehand and I’m more into the Marvel superheroes compared to the DC Comics ones. In the end, my parents and I went to see it and I’m pleased to have done so.
This film follows on after ‘Man of Steel’, the first Superman film with Henry Cavill in 2013. I enjoyed ‘Batman v Superman’, but I’m afraid it’s not the best superhero movie I’ve seen. It has good moments and it was fun to see how Superman and Batman meet on the big screen for the first time.
I’m afraid I did get lost in the plot in certain places. Things were made complicated during the events of the story in what should have been a relatively straight-forward film. My Dad said that this film was a lot of ‘flash-bang-wallop’. And I have to agree. It is a lot of ‘flash-bang-wallop’ with this film.
It was good to see Henry Cavill as Superman in this movie. Ben Affleck (from ‘Daredevil’) stars as Batman in this movie and does an interesting take on the character. It was also nice to see Amy Adams return as Lois Lane in this movie and Jesse Eisenberg plays a very young villainous Lex Luthor.
I was surprised and pleased to see Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s butler in this movie. Wonder Woman also makes an appearance in this movie and is played by Gal Gadot. This is the beginning of the Justice League as Superman; Batman and Wonder Woman appear together in this.
I’m afraid I was disappointed by the ending of the movie. If you’ve not seen this movie yet, I’ll let you find out for yourself what it is and not spoil anything for you. I will say though that there’s a teaser at the end of this movie that was abruptly cut with the end credits rolling that got me annoyed indeed.
So ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ isn’t the greatest superhero movie I’ve seen. It’s obviously meant to start the Justice League storyline as it had been done with the Avengers from the Marvel superhero universe. But it should have been a lot better and the story less complicated in the film.
I wouldn’t mind seeing ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ in 2017, as there was a trailer for that at the cinema before ‘Batman v Superman’ started.
Bye for now!
