Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is getting overwhelmingly NEGATIVE reviews

Recommended Posts

Based on the overall review score on Rotten Tomatoes and the reviews on YouTube, I will still see it... just not this weekend, or next weekend, or anytime soon.  The movie has just been downgraded from "must see ASAP" to "maybe later".

 

Two of my three most trusted movie critics on YouTube:

We all saw the trailers, right? We knew this was going to happen.

I'm in no hurry to see this or any other superhero movie. I'll just wait until they're released 6 months or so down the track when they come out online and watch them then..

Fans are always positive after prescreenings.

I'm guessing someone wanted to do Dark Knight returns or a similar slant on the story and was shot down by the studio. That's what I saw in the trailer, even down to batman's plate armor style. In Dark Knight Batman is basically Dirty Harry fighting to win no matter the cost, Superman is a 'yes man' taking orders from the president. So they set themselves up for the recreation of one of the best Batman series ever and of course people were disappointed.

 

I haven't seen it of course, but they were probably too careful in maintaining the image of their prized possessions for anything interesting to come out of it.

Critics are dumb. News at Obsidian. I'm looking forward to it. better than the crappy overrated Avengers.

I saw the trailer with Jesse Eisenberg just interjecting himself onto the screen and then just rambling on for a not insignificant amount of time a while back. I was pretty convinced it was going to be garbage after that, but, you know, I could've been wrong.

It was "maybe later" for me when they announced Zack Snyder was coming back.

It's like they keep trying to push the emo goth dark envelope with these films.  Makes me miss Val Kilmer as Batman.  

 

I think Deadpool has ruined all superhero flicks from here on out.

Zack Snyder made a bad movie. Absolutely shocking.

I wonder how bad it must be that even the "critics" couldn't swallow it.

И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

Ben Affleck killed Daredevil. Killing the Batman franchise, now that would be impressive. Anyway Superman always sucked, nostalgia can't change that.

They should make a Booster Gold movie  :dancing:

Actually, sounds like the concensus is that Affleck's Batman is the best thing about this movie.

The common complaint that I'm reading in the reviews linked at Rotten Tomatoes (and I'm only skimming to avoid spoilers) seems to be that the movie takes itself too seriously in all its broody darkness.

 

Which was pretty evident from the trailers and Man of Steel, to be honest. Expecting a tonal shift in a sorta-sequel is probably the wrong way to approach the movie, IMO.

Kind of sad for the guy if this just tanks.  He always got too much credit for Daredevil being terrible, and now he could be front and center as the DC movies go into a tailspin.

Yeah, if they had Daniel Day-Lewis playing Daredevil it still wouldn't have helped. That director didn't know what he was doing and he proved it by making Ghost Rider just as bad.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has just been downgraded from "must see on opening week" to "maybe later". So this is my suggestion if you still want to see the movie.

 

Disney's live-action The Jungle Book will come out in three weeks on April 15. When The Jungle Book comes out and gets decent reviews, buy the ticket to see that one, and then slip into a theater to see Batman v Superman after the Jungle Book.

 

Or you can wait another two weeks for Captain America: Civil War on May 6.

Why?  Haven't you realized that the Hoonding trademark is to be unimpressed by everything?

I still haven't seen Avengers 2.

I watched it casually a few weeks ago while it was airing on TV. Was pretty bored to tears - way too many characters doing way too many things at once, way too much constant, pointless-seeming action. Would not recommend it. But then again, superhero movies aren't for me, and similarly, I'm not a Marvel fan, so I wasn't exactly the target audience. :shrugz:

I liked the first Avengers movie well enough, but the second left me pretty cold as well.
