A Reddit user has posted their review of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice online. It contains mighty spoilers. Is it exciting? Yes. Is it true?
You have to take this with a grain of salt because stop me if you’ve heard this one: you can’t trust people on the internet. Upon first glance at this I thought “Yeah right, this dude is playing with our minds. He didn’t see anything.” Then I read it and to be quite honest I kind of believe the guy. Maybe I’m just trusting.
(Read this in your Liam Neeson ‘Taken’ voice) I’m about to post the review below. There will indeed be spoilers. If you do not want this movie or it’s possible contents spoiled for you, do not read below this giant picture of Liam Neeson. You will not be pleased. You have been warned.
Hey DC_Cinematic, i’m using a throwaway account for obvious reasons, but I saw the movie last night! I use a website for advance screenings and I got tickets for a mystery film and it turned out to be BvS.
The movie was very long, as long as TFA if I were to make a comparison. It didn’t drag though; every minute of the film was used effectively.
Performances were all great. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex is way more complex than what the trailers show. By the end of the film, you will HATE him, but at the same time, you can’t help admire how capable this guy is.
Ben Affleck as Bruce/Batman is definitely the standout performance. I was surprised/scared how different he became when he put the mask on. This Batman will come across as a villain to some viewers; he enjoys inflicting pain on criminals. There was a scene where he was branding a criminal, and he had the biggest smile on his face. I don’t know how fans will react to that, but I felt it worked with this version of the character.
Everyone else was great too, even the new supporting characters played by Jena Malone and Scoot McNairy. Jena Malone plays a crippled Barbara Gordon. She doesn’t have much screentime, but she does make a Killing Joke reference about an amusement park incident involving her now retired father. Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen who was injured during the events of Man of Steel. He does not blame Superman like the others, but supports him and views him as a hero. He has a popular blog about Superman.
The third act was mindblowing. The Doomsday reveal in the trailer is just the tip of the iceberg. There is a lot of action, and I loved every moment of it. The first and second acts are the “Batman v Superman” parts of the movie, while the third act is entirely “Dawn of Justice.” You will see a fully assembled Justice League by the end of the film.
All in all, BvS is the greatest comic book movie since The Dark Knight, and I can’t wait to see it again come March.
If anyone has questions, i’ll be glad to answer.
Boom goes the dynamite. It’s all a question of whether or not you believe the guy but it’s still a fun concept. If he speaketh the truth I’m just happy to hear the movie is good.
That Barbara Gordon/Scoot McNairy talk makes perfect sense from everything we’ve heard about the movie. Then again this could just be a smart theory. If you remember shots of McNairy on set had him with CGI stuff all over his legs which fits this theory.
I also like how the reviewer doesn’t quite spoil everything saying The Doomsday reveal in the trailer is just the tip of the iceberg. That gets me fired up.
I am shocked to hear that Eisenberg was so impressive considering how far off his portrayal was for me in the second trailer. That’s a good thing though if it turns out to be true. While I don’t have high hopes for him as Lex I truly am hoping to be dead wrong.
Ok spoiler lovin’ human beings! What do you think? Should we believe this fine fellow? Is this the real life? Stay tuned to GeekNation for more mystery.
