“Everyone HATES Batman v Superman? – The Know”


“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Reviews – #CUPodcast”


It’s not as bad as some people are making it out to be…but I agree with many people, that they seriously need to change the direction of this series…Otherwise, it’s going into the toilet.

They’ve already blown through the “one, two” punch, of reboot Superman, and then reboot Batman [fighting Superman]…And they’ve never managed anything more than a lukewarm movie, each time.

Having seen Man of Steel…my expectations were not high…and I left, thinking I’d seen an okay movie…But that’s the problem…This movie should not have been just “okay”…It should have been phenomenal.

I think the best element was Batman…a character I really liked, in this version. It was nice to see Wonder Woman, also.

Beyond that…the storyline isn’t terribly coherent…And there are things going on, that just should not have been. I think there were too many dream sequences…and not any real exploration of them…They are just there, as something that gets salted into the main movie…They largely feel disconnected from the rest of the movie…which is my major gripe with Man of Steel, also…Where it was as if they put two or three separate movies into a blender, and came up with one…And it just did not work, as an over all movie. Batman V Superman suffers from the same syndrome.

Their fight is not terribly epic, either…And it’s over with way to fast, and way to simplistically…It’s just not believable…For a warped vigilante who hates Superman…Batman should not be acting like he and Superman were friends, by the end of this movie…That is some type of spite, which should linger, flair up and mellow…over two or three movies…not be quickly done and forgotten…On the contrary…If this series manages to go ten movies, they should still b a bit snotty with each other at least going into the fifth movie.

Doomsday was just…senseless…I don’t see why they felt like this was needed…because it made the movie jumbled…and I think they could have made a great movie, solely with Batman and Superman at each others throats…Wonder Woman could have been the peace maker…And the vicious rivalry could have spilled into a second movie…which then could introduced more characters [Luther…Doomsday, etc.]…

No spoilers here…but, I’m glad they made Batman come off as strong as he did…And I’m glad they let the movie end where it did [if they was going to pursue the storyline they did]…and that they didn’t do any last minute swerves, to set everything right again before the movie ends.

I would still recommend going to see it…because it wasn’t a bad movie…It just wasn’t as good as it needed to be.

They’re going to have to step up their game…because if they do a three-peat with this formula on Suicide Squad…they might not have enough momentum and political capital left, to justify a fourth movie.
