It is true that [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) was one of the most awaited movies of 2016, but we can't say that it has been the most critically acclaimed one. Critics has not been the best fans of Batman v Superman; and also majority of fans has disliked it. People say that they didn't get what they have expected; but I honestly think that they just haven't really understood it.
So, this movie has a mature and dark theme, it is safe to say that it is not for children. Don't take your 9 year old to the theater and expect him to enjoy this movie as much as he enjoyed Avengers or Age of Ultron. This movie has content that is not quite appropriate for kids. For example; extreme violence and some sort-of-sexual content. Anyways, you get the point.
People don't understand how this movie is awesome and enjoyable. They don't understand how much it reflects the comic book universe of DC and how great and artificially did the actors portray the characters. So, here are what people REALLY need to understand about this great movie:
- The actors' greatness. I don't know why people keep saying that the actors did a crappy job as their roles, but honestly almost all of the cast was flawless. Almost. Anyways. Batfleck and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and not to be underestimated. Ben Affleck really is the Batman that we've been looking for all this time. And as for Wonder Woman; a DC character's cinematic debut has never been better and more amazing. I mean it. She killed it. Killed us. I died. Who didn't though? You already probably know how superior and great Henry Cavill's Superman is. Most realistic -and by far, most charming- Superman ever. Holly Hunter, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne did great as side characters. Jeremy Irons did one hell of a job as Alfred. He was so cool and very badass for a butler. Note that he was also more than just a butler. So cool. Amy Adams as Lois Lane was a-okay. Lex Luthor... Well, he deserves his own paragraph. We'll get there.
- The art. People seemed to not to understand how beautifully and artificially the story has been put into the big screen. For instance, the scene in which Martha Wayne and Thomas Wayne dies is pure art. I have not seen the simple death of Bruce Wayne's parents being visualised so great. The scene in which Superman was reaching out to the victims of a flood was pure art. The movie had included many scenes in which I told myself; "Damn Zack. This is pure art." Had hoped the critics could've understood the beauty in this movie as much as I did, but I don't give a damn about a critics website which gave Sharknado a better score than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
- The loyalty to the comics. This movie is a perfect example to how a comic book movie should be, dragging the action scenes, characters, costumes and art right out of the comics. The story moves on slowly but so gracefully that you don't even understand how slow the story moves on. Bam, that's how a comic book story goes. Also, each line spoken by each character reflects the character's personality and purposes so well. That's a job well done and this one is one of the very few comic book movies that have stayed loyal to the actual version of the character's personality and have reflected it throughout the actions and the lines of the characters.
- The action. Majority of the audience thinks that this movie has been really dull compared to what they have expected from the title. They complain about how Batman vs Superman was just actually 8 minutes. Well, those 8 minutes have been so exiting and action-packed that we didn't even freaking care about the duration. We were too busy getting all that hype, you know? Batman punched Superman to death. Superman kicked Batman's ass to death. Batman pushes him down 10 floors and leaves him to die. Superman breaks Batman through walls and lets him bleed. Those shallow sentences are not enough and pretty much insignificant to describe these scenes. You gotta see it. Really.
- The emotion. Okay, okay; so let's stop right here. Not only that the whole world has made a meme out of that 'Martha' scene, but they also complain about how it's being a insult to the history of emotional scenes. I wish people were as mature about this stuff as they were when Captain America saved a brainwashed soldier with a line: "I'm with ya till the end of the line." Nobody made a damn meme about it. So ignore the "Martha" scene whatsoever. That meme is dumb and you know it. Both lines had something to do with the character's current circumstances and had emotional connection to their past. Think of it: For someone whose life is connected so much to his parents' death and had spent years thinking about & acting according to it, it was fair enough of him to overreact to someone saying one of his dead parents' name & talking about saving her.
I think whatever negative thing that people have thought about all this, were wrong. But there actually some things that the haters were actually right about:
- Doomsday. I cannot even put into words how much I disliked him. Not only the unrealistic CGI and childish "giant-attack-powerful-character-while-roaring" cliché. Or it is just me. I don't know, there was just this weird thing about him that was a little off.
- Jesse Einsberg as Lex Luthor. From the moment that I learned he was cast as Lex, I told myself: "There goes a waste of a character." Lex Luthor was supposed to be a powerful, serious-mysterious, dark and villainous guy; not some high-school alcoholic hippie. He had his moments though, he had some remarkable lines but the way he said them was so not-Lex-Luthor that he made those stuff seem weird and hilarious. I wish we would've gotten Bryan Cranston or actors like him instead of Jesse.
Overall, these are the points that people do not understand about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Do you agree, or disagree?
