Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ★★★

Man versus God, day versus night. A good film versus its outer space abomination of a second half and suffers humiliating defeat. Do I like it? Yea, kinda. It's dark and gritty and right up my alley, radiating Watchmen vibes in a few places. All the actors have done a decent job and I appreciate that, especially Jeremy Irons as Alfred I'd love to see more of him. (Gotta find myself a butler who knows how to fly a drone) Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL's score, of course, needs no introduction and has a very strong presence throughout the film.

As mentioned above it's all downhill when the actual fight starts. Without warning, the movie bared its fangs and turned into lazy filmmaking at its ugliest form, even the loud music has failed to mask the overall plastic quality of the battle on screen, kind of pathetic for Snyder to cop out at the last crucial minute, if you ask me. It's like he suddenly realized that the whole idea was way too large for him to handle so he surrendered, and that's very disrespectful to the potential that this film possesses, or possessed.
