I'm not a big DC fan but I went and saw this movie with an open mind anyway. It's unfortunate that it was an intriguing idea, executed poorly. In Batman vs Superman, Gotham City is torn between letting Super Heroes have "free reign" over the world and are fearful that someone as powerful as Superman could do virtually whatever he wanted, and the city would be powerless to stop him. Batman also doesn't approve of Superman and views him as a dangerous foe. The main villain, Lex Luthor sees this issue as an opportunity for himself to gain power and pits Superman and Batman against each other, while secretly working on an even greater problem-- a monster that puts everyone at risk. The Good: This movie was very action-packed and shows the awesomeness of both Superman and Batman equally and Wonder Woman makes her first live-action debut. The final battle at the end is exciting. The Bad: Right from the very beginning it felt like I was watching a dark and "artsy" movie in slow motion. The drama is WAY overdone to create a slow "heartstopping" feel that just DRAGGED ON. For about 60% of the scenes it was hard to tell what was a dream and what was reality; both were so RIDICULOUS at times, and I was extremely confused. The Ugly: It's darker than burnt toast. The humor is very fleeting and it felt like the director shot the whole movie in a ghostly, shadowy light. I got really restless waiting for the big fight between the two characters and it was just so SLOWWW. This movie had the potential to be so much more than a film with a confusing plot feebly held together with string.
Pretty good. I liked it, despite many complaints about Batman and Superman suddenly becoming friends. It wasn't because their mothers had the same name, it was because Batman realized all Superman was doing was saving his mother.
