Not since the egregiously awful 2013 version of The Lone Ranger has there been a worse story surrounding an iconic character than presented in Director Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Oh, should I have said “spoiler alert?” No, the creators of this nonsensical piece of tripe don’t deserve to have their story protected. And, my readers know I don’t give away plot points unless there are gross violations of filmmaking.
Here, there is a mishmash of idiotic happenings that defy any concept of logic. For example, humanity turns against Superman because he, supposedly, killed some terrorists with bullets. Since when would Superman need bullets to kill someone?
Superman turns against Batman, the savior of Gotham, because it dawns on him after so many years that Batman is a vigilante. What is he?
When Batman subdues Superman with kryptonite, he relents because he learns they both have mothers with the same first name. Really!!?
Snyder had so many great performers to work with and he dared to immerse them in this crap!
Look, for the most part, the actors, especially Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Gal Gadot do a wonderful job, as does the Effects crew.
But you couldn’t come up with a more shameful end to Superman.
If Trump has won you over, you’ll probably enjoy this negative look at the world.
For the sake of the actors and crew, I’ll, at least, give Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice a 2 out of 5.
