Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice hit the box office today and it has proven to be one of the most divisive blockbusters out there. Some critiques hate it and yet others love it! What is going on? We decided to take a look for ourselves and we honestly can’t see where all the hate is coming from? Seriously! And not just because we’re huge Batman and Superman fans (we are) but because in our opinion, the negative criticism really doesn’t add up or even accurately portrays the film.

Are you ready for some honest feedback on this highly divisive movie? Then here are 25 Reasons To See Batman V Superman: An Honest Review.

A spectacular Batman
Let’s begin by talking about Ben Afleck’s Batman…hands down the best Batman out there! We were very skeptical when we heard that Ben Afleck was dawning the cape and mask of the Dark Knight. But Afleck really captured the severity of the persona that defines who Batman is. The brutality that he is capable of and most importantly, the fear that he is able to instill on his enemies. This is truly the Batman we’d hope to see on the big screen.
The cinematography is mind blowing
That’s not an exaggeration. The visuals are absolutely stunning, crisp, sharp. It’s a feast for the eyes if anything else. We did not watch this movie in an IMAX theater, and that was a HUGE mistake on our part.
It’s not a secret that the score can either make or break a movie. Here it definitely makes it. Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL have anchored this movie in what we can only describe as a raging river; taking the audience on a trip through intense rapids. Prepare yourself for an adrenaline rush.
Batman fight scenes
Ok so we already mentioned that Batman is on-point in this film. But one of the highlights to Batman’s success is his athleticism. We can guarantee you’ve never seen a Batman move, fight, flip, grap, punch, like this Batman. His fighting scenes are borderline genius. Again this is not an exaggeration. Former Batmans are notorious for being restricted by their suits; but for this Batman, Snyder employs some practical effects and CG which really paid off.
Hard to not give spoilers here, but let’s just say that Batman V Superman sets up what will eventually be the Justice League team, and it truly is an exciting thing to see. We’ll leave it at that. BUT, where critiques have said that this aspect of the movie is poorly done, we disagree. Maybe a bit ambitious, but definitely not meriting the inflated negativism that it seems to be getting.
