And you will go to see this movie looking for flaws, so let me explain you why.
Others influence us in a good way or bad way. Usually the ratings and reviews are pretty good determining if something is good or not. But usually means just that.. usually . In this case a 29% certified rotten and a 7.3 on IMDB it’s worthless . A lot of reviews are 1/10. How is this possible ? Even if this was a mute movie the visuals and the action itself would make it at least 5/10. Add the memorable dialog, the kickass music and it’ll jump some points more.
So what happened ?
A lil thing called suspension of disbelief. Directly linked to what you heard about this movie, you might be on the lookout for negative things, which directly makes you a bit more oblivious to the positive ones. You’ll scrutinize each scene carefully, and a feeling of mistrust will sneak in.
So how did this affect the viewer ?
In comparison to Nolan’s trilogy, which was more real: shaky hand held cams, aerial shots which some would say added more authenticity and realism, Snyder constructs each scene flawlessly, almost poetic. Day by day how many frames are worth remembering ? A beautiful sunset in specific day, an unexpected chain of events, the emotional reaction of someone dear. So not that many clearly not the majority. So this bugs some people, it pulls them out of their real world and they’re gonna call it pompous, and ostentatious and whatever big words you can think off that. Maybe it gets tiring for some.
That’s why after you leave the cinema you gonna get the feeling you kinda want to watch it again, see what you missed.
What people complain it’s the story. Seriously ? Movie it’s called Batman versus Superman ( means they gonna fight ) Dawn of Justice ( means they gonna team up at the end ) That’s 2 bigass spoilers right in the title. Watch all 4 trailers ( the last 2 trailers are a BIG MISTAKE ) and you might get spoiled more. Now hear everybody bitching about it, go see the movie all weary about the negativity and you might not like it.
So the story is predictable, and knowing superhero movies, you kinda suspect they gonna win too ( You kinda heard about the sequels too )
You know how it’s gonna end already. Imagine you’re on a date with someone you really like, someone new and mysterious – and future you comes to you and tell you you gonna have sex with that person later that night. A bit of the mystery gone, your interest dims. The only real questions are why ? and how ?
The why ? Why Batman does what he does . I’m gonna keep this spoiler free, but if you put yourself in Batman’s shoes for this movie, there is no doubt you understand why . I’m gonna approach only the subject of killing. To be honest I grew up watching Batman animated series, and since I didn’t really understand italian or english at that time. I didn’t get it he wasn’t supposed to kill anybody. I’ve seen Tim Burtons movies a while after and he was killing people just fine. So he kills again ? So what ? A final solution for those criminals. He’s supposed to be american so they have the capital punishment, it’s in self-defense. Why are people getting so upset about this ? Oh wait .. because everybody it’s so goddamn politically correct these days. Well Batman isn’t, his parents were killed by some arab in a dark alley, what did u expect ?
B-b-but wait … what about Superman ? And Wonder Woman ? And Lex ? Superman it’s like trying to be this perfect do-gooder and everybody hates him. So he is a bit off and spends time with Lois doing her good and talks with his mom too like a nice son would !
Wonder Woman it’s the typical over 100 years looking 20ish chick with superpowers, so she’s flying under the radar aloof and amused.
And lastly, Lex Luthor .. He says it himself power isn’t innocent, and he uses it how he wants it. He just wants to stay on top the heap
My only advice is, go to this movie expecting a trilogy. The climax of the movie is definately the Batman vs Superman fight, and it’s hard to top that afterwards, not for the lack of trying.
Does the movie has some flaws, sure but it’s not one bit unsatisfying. The trailers and the multitude of bad reviews are the only thing that drags this down.
I for one can’t wait to see the next two Justice League movies directed by Snyder. Because this guy takes risks, sure he might not please everybody but in the end who can? And what if everybody is wrong and you are right ?
