• The movie is packed with references – both visual and dialogue-wise – to classic comic lore. Underpinning everything is Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s score. An artillery barrage of action.

  • The non-linear spiel, though busy and fervently active, doesn’t quite enchant because of the frequent back and forth cutting that doesn’t allow for extended concentration. With the central conflict looking forced and out-of-place especially when there’s an irritating villain scheming in the shadows, waiting to be vanquished. The tonal template here is much darker than what Snyder designed for ‘Man of Steel’ and that’s a good thing surely.

    Overall, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is a film that ultimately disappoints despite showing a lot of promise to begin with. As previously mentioned, poor writing and unimaginative direction are to be blamed for it.

  • Two pouty man-children with obvious daddy issues, Batman and Superman fail to ever truly be the heroes they are. And crushed under the weight of creating a Marvel-esque DC franchise, Batman v Superman fails to ever truly tap into the potential that a clash between two of the most revered superheroes of all time should technically provide.
