Despite the loads of negative reviews, we took the plunge and went and saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I’m going to get into some spoilers so I’ll banter here for a moment before putting in a page break.
The spoiler-free review is that I didn’t really mind this movie at all. It had plenty of flaws (which I’ll get into), but overall I had low expectations, and wasn’t let down; in fact I rather enjoyed the experience. My wife and I think one of the biggest problems with superhero movies right now is that we’ve seen big and flashy over and over again. Every movie that comes out has bigger and bigger explosions, and when those come at the expense of a decent story, the movie tends to suffer.
You’ve had your warning, because here come the spoilers.
