The Irony!
27 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its ironic how the movie is about some who hate superman and others who love him, and the reviews about the movie seem to be similar. lol. Do yourself a favor and watch the movie, at least to see what the whole fuss is about.

I felt like the only bad thing BvS did was they advertised way too much, which made it a prime target for haters to want to see this movie burn.

About the movie itself, Wow!!!! Zack Snyder really experiments with cinematography. If you bought Fandango tickets, and got the free comic books, I highly recommend that you read those before you go watch the movie. Because you will see Zack Snyder's genius, it was so interesting how he made the movie feel like it came alive from the comic books. I know people have constantly been saying, batman is darker... well actually another word to describe it is scarier, certain elements from it felt like a horror movie, because it got that creepy. But in a good way!!! Because that is why Batman even exists, to bring fear in the hearts of his enemies.

How ironic that majority people thought Ben Affleck was a mistake for Batman, and no one is saying anything bad about him now. He was freaking awesome as Batman!!! In fact I am pretty pleased with everyone they casted. Some were a little unorthodox approach, but it was new and clever so i liked it. Don't want to see the same kind of Lex Luther every time there is a new movie, that gets boring to me.

This movie is definitely different then another superhero movie. Any other movie you watch, you definitely know that it's a science fiction and it will never happen. This movie actually made you wonder, what if these superheroes existed in our world, how we would react to it. That's what makes this movie so Amazing.

Please go watch it, and i wish i could rate the critics and give them rotten tomatoes. Oh, and go check the profile of these critics, they are like old grumpy men.. you wouldn't trust them with recommending a restaurant, so definitely don't trust their recommendation for movies. ! lol
