Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill star in this two superheroes for the price of one film. But is it worth a watch?
The Guardian: *** Andrew Pulver said: “Director Zack Snyder, returning from Man of Steel, applies the degree of visual polish that the contemporary superhero film demands, even if subtlety is not his strong point.”
Empire: ***Nick De Semlyen thought that: “A climax to a climax, it’s CGI overkill, making for a generic and exhausting denouement.”
The Telegraph: ** Robbie Collin summed the film up by saying: “No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured.”
The Independent: ***Geoffrey Mcnab found that there is : “a lingering suspicion that both these superheroes work better when they’re flying solo.”
The Metro: Cassam Looch wrote: “Affleck conveys a monstrous side of Batman that we have never seen before.”
Evening Standard: *** Charlotte O’Sullivan commented: “Batman v Superman nevertheless deserves points for creating a vision of modern America that feels truly fractured.”
Den of Geek: Ryan Lambie described it as: “Explosive, visually stunning and sometimes thought-provoking, Batman V Superman is a feast for the eyes and ears. ”
Digital Spy: ** Hugh Armitage said: “the film is visually stunning, with Snyder proving that he is much better at saying things with cinematography than through his actors.”
The Mirror:*** David Edwards wrote: “Zack Synder’s movie is packed with action stunning setpieces.”
Overall Verdict: perhaps not the strongest blockbuster film in terms of plot but Ben Affleck seems to impress as does the action sequences.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is released in cinemas today.
