So I just re-watched “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” on BluRay last weekend and I still see nothing wrong with the film. Yes, the film is still the most hated film in Hollywood right now. After I re-watched it, I can’t understand why. The film is not bad like everyone is saying. Actually, I think the film is pretty fucking great and I really mean that too.
Reasons the film is great for what it is ’cause it was pretty faithful to the comics for the most part. A lot of the movie was adapted from “The Death and Life of Superman”, ya know that famous story about Doomsday. They finally brought the “Death and Life of Superman” to the big screen. Also, “Batman v. Superman: DOJ” had many other comics adapted to that movie too like it had a lot of “Dark Knight: Returns” mixed in there as well ’cause the film was pretty much about an aging Batman. That’s where they got the idea of Batman and Superman not getting along too well at first ’cause they borrowed that idea from “The Dark Knight Returns” graphic novel/animated movie. So technically, the “Batman vs. Superman: DOJ” film is a mix of “Death and Life of Superman” and “The Dark Knight Returns”.
Plus, I think the visuals and the action scenes in “Batman v. Superman: DOJ” are out of this world. Sure all the action scenes don’t start ’til the second half of movie ’cause I’ll admit the movie started off kind of slow in the beginning but that’s good. It leaves room for more story. Everybody expected “Batman v. Superman: DOJ” to be this big action movie but when you actually see it, you’ll realize it’s something different.
I thought the Doomsday battle was incredible. That was probably the best part of the movie, in my opinion, that’s when Wonder Woman jumps in.
I think the only reason that the film got so much negative criticism is ’cause people don’t like Ben Affleck. Period. If they had a different actor to play Batman instead of Ben then maybe the film would have been received more positively. Isn’t that messed up? Anyway, I thought Ben made a great Batman. The way Ben’s mouth looked wearing the Batman suit, Wow. I thought Ben looked badass in the Batman suit. Ben will never be a better Batman than Michael Keaton and Christian Bale but I thought Ben did a great job.
With all this being said, I can’t wait for “Justice League” movie. The “Justice League” film would be even better than “B vs. S: DOJ”. Seriously, you should give “B vs. S: DOJ” another chance. It’s not a horrible movie like most people are saying. While I do have a great deal of respect for Mel Gibson, I’ll have to disagree with him of calling it a “piece of shit” ’cause it’s not.
