Now that I’ve seen Dawn of Justice I finally have gotten around to reading some of the bad reviews that have been posted. I did a right after the movie video review but I guess this is more of a response to many of the articles I’ve read.
The movie was great. The argument that “this isn’t what the characters are about” is moot for comic characters. For over 20 years batman was Adam west and Burt Ward which included such great moments as the Bat-tussi and Shark Repellent Bat spray. Dark Knight Returns made batman the dark knight we know and love today. Zack Snyder is a darker director. . Comic books are always retelling stories. Injustice Gods Among us. Red Son, Superman 3 all have different versions of Superman. Heck Lois and Clark had a superman who’s supersuit got burned and was quite silly at times. My favorite superman is still Christopher Reeve but after seeing this and coming to terms with what the movie is doing i realized it is a good movie it tells a good story about a super human coming to terms with his place in the world. Batman is great and has yes this Batman is more free with his weapons and collateral damage on bad guys but again this is a grizzled older Batman. Go into the movie with an open mind this is like picking up the Vertigo version of Batman v Superman its going to be darker its going to have different imagery and the charachters will act differently than the Justice League TV show. Enjoy it it’s a movie.
