Starring: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Holly Hunter, Gal Gadot

Plot: Fearing that 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 (IMDB.com).

Rating: 6/10

Overall: So… I waited a while to see this film and read all the reviews from my other movie snob friends. This film had an overall 98% “letdown” rating. I could’ve told you that the moment they casted Ben Affleck as Batman…but whatever. Going into the film, I went in with my standards very low. With that being said, I left the film saying, “It was decent.” For what it’s worth, there are some really good parts. I really liked the incorporation of Wonder Woman – though I think it could’ve been included a little more smoothly and definitely delved into more. I also really loved the character of Lex – though, again, I don’t think it was delved into (which, yes, I know was probably intentional for future films). I didn’t like the “bad blood” between Superman and Batman… it just seemed poorly set-up/developed, which would be on the writer’s end of the film. There were also a few parts I didn’t quite grasp – particularly Lex’s “evil plan.” Overall, I gave it a 6 (like giving someone an “A for effort”).

  1. I still remember being SO excited to go see this one, only to almost fall asleep halfway through the movie. It was definitely not what I had hoped it would be, the first half was messy and it felt like it was missing scenes, just very jumpy. I did like Wonder Woman though, I think Gal Gadot shut up most of the critics with her portrayal (at least I hope so). Nice review, are you currently sharing your work on any other movie/tv platforms?

      • Well, if you’d be interested, I’d love to introduce you to Moviepilot/Creators and to help you get your work seen on there. Let me know if you’d be interested in that. You can find my contact details on my blog.
