Overall Review: Batman v Superman is a fresh breath of air in the live action comic book genre. The overall story is well woven. The pacing of the film is little slow in the first half but picks up like a roller coaster ride in 2nd half, giving narrative transitions which flow and keeps the audiences attention. The fight between Batman and Superman was amazing. Cheers to Zack for getting constellations of stars together in one film. Performances are the key ingredients to make this film simply orgasmic. Film has few flaws but are ignored easily. Overall, the movie is a visual tour de force.
Performance & Technical Review: Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman was pure awesome and dark. Cavill’s performance as Superman was pretty much the same as his performance in Man of Steel. Jesse Eisenberg, no words can explain how deep this character is and how wonderful of a job Eisenberg does as Lex Luthor. He is eccentric. Film marks the entry of the fearsome female hero, the Wonder Woman in grand style. The music is thrilling. The story is deep and way darker than any movies (esp: Nolan trilogy). Action is epic; films has managed to balance all emotions: Humor, Action, Drama. The cinematography used in the movie is fantastic. Cavill delivered the dialogues during the fight scene with Batman in a near perfect way. Zack masterfully blends shots in a poetic way. This movie feels like a Greek epic come to the big screen.
PDF Verdict: The movie is a visual “Tour De Force”. A complete EPIC package and probably one of the finest Super Hero Film. Strongly recommended blockbuster especially if you are Super Hero fan (Following DC / Marvel Comics). Expectations are now set for the next awaited mega blockbuster: Justice League releasing in 2017 featuring Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern.
