If you're reading reviews to see whether Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is worthy of your time, you're probably shaking your head in confusion. A handful absolutely loved it, others thought it was so-so, and some even abhorred it.
The varied discourse has even reached the cast and crew, causing them to respond to the reviews and set the record straight, once and for all.
Henry Cavill, who portrays Superman in the film, told Yahoo!:
“The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions. And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything.
“What is really going to matter, I believe, is what the audience says. Because they’re the ones who are buying tickets, they’re the ones who want to see more of this kind of story or not and so the audience’s voice is loudest and after this weekend the audience, at least partly, will have spoken.”
Ben Affleck agreed with Cavill, but did not elaborate.
Amy Adams, on the other hand, offered her opinion:
“I know that Zack [Snyder] doesn’t make the movies — or none of us — are making the movies for the critics. You can’t go into it with that perspective. I know we really hope the fans like it and so far the reaction has been really positive on that front.”
Director Zack Snyder simply left us with:
"I'm a comic book guy and I made the movie as much as I can on that aesthetic."
I suppose the best decision is to watch the film for yourself and form your own opinion. If anything, you know you're in for magnificent fights, stunts and epic flying sequences.
