It’s taken me awhile to write this review on the movie “Dawn of Justice”. A lot has been going on, and I just haven’t had much time to write here in this blog. However, since the DVD is supposed to be released sometime next month, I figured I would do a review of the movie for anyone who might be considering picking up that DVD.
I’m going to start by reminding everyone that I wasn’t a big fan of the movie “Man of Steel”. However, I still watched this movie because it had Batman! Now, I was one of those people who from the beginning said this movie was going to suck because Ben Affleck was playing batman! I was wrong! Don’t get me wrong, Affleck was a HORRIBLE Batman, and the movie sucked, but it wasn’t because of Ben Affleck! He just added to the suckitude! In fact, I would say that the movie sucked mainly because of Jesse Eisenberg who played Lex Luthor! He was a horrible choice! Between Ben Affleck and Eisenberg I have to wonder what the casting crew thinking!
Lex Luthor is played like a whiny lunatic! Less like a billionaire criminal mastermind and ultimate nemesis to Superman, and more like a whackjob who should be committed to Arkham Asylum. It’s like they wanted to make Lex Luthor similar to Batmans typical rogue gallery. Someone like the Riddler, or the Joker but with money! It’s horrible!
Like I said, Affleck was horrible too! However, I expected that! I just HATE this version of batman so much! To be honest though? No actor could have made this version of Batman enjoyable. He even has a lame costume! This was hugely disappointing, because Superman and Batman are the only 2 DC characters that I enjoy! So, I really should have liked this movie, and I didn’t! This is the first Batman movie that I didn’t like, so congratulations Zack Snyder! You ruined Batman for me!
In fact, oddly enough the only saving grace of this movie was Wonder Woman! Her character seemed pretty well done, and she looked bad assed! Which is insane, because I don’t even like the Wonder Woman comics!
By the end of the movie I was bored out of my skull. I spent the last 30 minutes thinking about what I wanted to do when I got home. I can’t recall the last time I was that happy about a movie ending! When the credits began to roll I bolted! I was up and gone! I didn’t even stick around to see if there were post credits because I have no intention of watching any movies set in the DC cinematic universe. Except maybe Wonder Woman….If Snyder isn’t attached to it.
