What would happen if Avengers were darker and grimmer?
This movie is your answer. I will not say that this is the best Comic Book Movie ever, but this is one of the best for sure. Man of Steel was an excellent movie but for those who dislike Man of Steel , BvS is so much better, a big improvement.
it is like a poetry
The writing of the movie is wonderful and we see that Terrio is a guy with a great intellectual baggage, even when writing a super hero movie. I appreciate the different direction DC has taken with Batman V Superman,after the barrage of Marvel same same movies ( Ironman/Antman for example ), It's refreshing to have something more serious and actually dealing with the ramifications of a world inhabited by super powered beings. This movie isn't for everyone,It's not a action packed popcorn set and forget film but it's also not the Dark knight. Somewhere in between spectacle and drama it sits.
All the actors exceed your expectations. Laughed at the absurdity of Jesse Eisenberg playing Luthor? Laughed at the pathetic Ben Affleck playing the Caped Crusader? All of you fanboys are so horribly wrong. Eisenberg is at his best. He's the most sinister and brilliant Lex we've ever seen. More a conniving weasel than a real estate mogul. Affleck gives one of his most thought-provoking roles. Also kudos to Zimmer, his score is both haunting and epic at the same time. Oh and not to forget how hot this Wonder Woman looks.
The direction is absolutely fantastic. Zack masterfully blends shots in a poetic way. The pacing is absolutely better than other comic book movies; we see things build up to this great, epic, brawl instead of getting bits and spurts. It makes the overall payoff much, much better. This movie feels like a Greek epic come to the big screen. Terrio's writing style and Ben Affleck's assistance come shining through the screenplay, which will silence the Man of Steel haters. The flow of the narrative is smooth. There is humor, there is wit. There is mythos, there is sadness. There is even a lot of subtle political commentary that Terrio sneaks in. You will feel many, many emotions while watching this. I also have to mention that the third act is easily the apex of comic-book-dom. It feels like a hodge podge of some of the greatest moments in comics brushed onto the canvas of this movie.
Zack's done it guys. He's made a darn masterpiece. We should thank this man. He's created this year's Mad Max. A blockbuster movie that exceeds even the strongest naysayer's expectations. It's everything we wanted in a comic book movie but more.
P.S. Marvel's movies don't hold a candle to this one. D.C. has their Empire Strikes Back.
Batman V Superman may not be the superhero film that we want, but its sure as hell the one we need
My rating for batman v superman: dawn of justice
