FYI this review contains spoilers! You have been warned!
First off I just want to say for the record that this movie was epic! There were several aspects of the movie I did enjoy. However several things annoyed me.
First, why are we still revisiting the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents, I feel like at this point in time everyone knows how Bruce parents died, why are we still providing a back story for this character? I felt like it was a waste of time.
Secondly, with all the competition around here with Marvel movies, I was hoping that DC would kick it up a few with the action. Man of Steel had much more action than Dawn of Justice. We spent about a hour and a half with a lot of back story and dialogue before any action happened. Superman didn’t do much until the end of the film during the epic battle with Doomsday.
Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenburg….. I don’t really know where Zach Snyder is going with this casting, I thought this version of Lex was a little over the top, reminded me of how the Joker would behave. I am still optimistic about this version of Lex because we all understand now that this movie is the Dawn of Justice and we are seeing first hand of how the Justice League kicks off.
Close to the end of the movie there was a scene where Dianna (Wonder Woman) is looking at some top secret files uncovered from Lex’s computer archives by Bruce. Batman and Wonder Woman both discover that there are some other “Metahumans” amungst them. The metahumans that were discovered were The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman.
During the epic battle, Superman was “killed” by doomsday, or so we think. During Superman’s funeral (which was too long) right before they cut to credits, and after Lois drops the dirt over the coffin the dirt starts to gravitate away from the coffin possibly indicating that Superman may be coming back to life. I mean we already know its quite difficult to kill Superman.
Overall I think that this movie was amazing, I know a lot of people were happy to see Wonderwoman on the big screen, and we are all excited to see how her movie will unfold. For Dawn of Justice I think this movie will pave the way for more amazing DC movies , I can’t wait to see what they will do next.
