Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
The title is quite self-explanatory. The all point of this movie is to bring Batman fighting Superman. Since we are referring to the two most iconic superheroes of all time, you'd expect an epic fight between the two.
Therefore, the one and only important thing in the script was to write a good reason for those two characters to fight.
And from the beginning, we can sense that the screenwriters are forcing the story to the characters, where it should be the opposite.
So, the two heroes fight each others over whatever reasons. But the worst part of it all is its conclusion. Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent shares the same mother's name. And suddenly, that seems to be enough for the characters to stop their fight and become best pals. I am of course exaggerating, but I don't think I am that far from the truth.
Lex Luthor, the famous vilain, is portrayed by Mark Zuckerberg - I mean, by Jesse Eisenberg. While I admire his courage to play the character in a peculiar way, it unfortunately does not work... at all. The result is so bad and so far away from The Joker from The Dark Knight or Bane from The Dark Knight Rises, that we can only deeply miss Christopher Nolan for not directing this movie.
Jesse Eisenberg's performance is totally embarrassing and every single second he appears on screen totally reduces the already poor quality of the film.
As for Ben Affleck, many were against him being cast as the new Batman. I must say I really enjoyed his performance and his big look.
Once again, exactly like Man of Steel, the film is having great and undeniable qualities. Unfortunately, by trying to do too much, it fails to deliver properly on a foundational level.
And like in Man of Steel, the soundtrack of this film is quite incredible. Wonder Woman's theme is simply brilliant and fun. This time, Hans Zimmer is joined by Junkie XL, whoever that is.
A very hyped but bad movie. A completely artificial feud. I give it 3 out of 10.
