Goofs

The Spanish subtitles shown on the TV news flash at the party at LexCorp are incorrect. They read "La celebraciones ... fueron interrumpidos" whereas it should read "Las celebraciones ... fueron interrumpidas" (plural feminine). In addition, the O in celebraciones should carry no accent. See more »

Quotes

Amazed, Favourite superhero film of this year.
20 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Once a movie that i was extremely nervous about stepping into, just happened to turn out to be my favorite superhero movie, and probably will for years to come, very interesting aspect of the movie was using the flaws of the first installment of the comic book universe and building upon those mishaps to create a much better - more compelling story, Another aspect that really stood out was the dialogue, which you, the viewer can really tell has been improved, Thanks to Chris Terrio.

Though these aspects of the film were really well done what really pulled me in to the movie was the performances by the the actors, mainly Jesse Eisenberg and Ben Affleck's Performances, they really grabbed your attention through a large amount of the scene's showing really great character development from both, also to add i wasn't expecting much from Gal Gadot, shocking to think, as her performance was fantastic -shocking- also to add she really had some great fight scenes that really hooked me, there wasn't a dull moment through out the hole movie, and also fast paste

The cinematography used in the movie is fantastic, and i believe some of these moment within the film will be with us for some time, Overall can't say anymore great things about this movie, it's left me speechless.
