Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) – MR00005 (2019) – 🐸🐸🐸🐸⚪
Eighteen months after Superman battled Zod, Batman is convinced that Superman himself is a potential threat and needs to be stopped. Meanwhile, Clark Kent wants to unmask Batman the Vigilante.
What I Liked
The original premise seemed silly, until you see both Batman and Superman fearing what the other might do, and seeing themselves as the saviour. Diana Prince does a great job managing the two testosterone-filled superheroes. And it is great to finally see a real villain that poses an actual threat — Doomsday is so powerful, he can even kill Superman, and it takes all three of the heroes together to stop him and Lex Luthor.
What I Didn’t Like
Lex seems more like a cliché, and using adoptive mothers as extortionary bait seems contrived.
The Bottom Line
More enjoyable than I was expecting.
