Critics trounce ‘Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice’ with scathing reviews

Critics can be brutal, but this is a new level altogether. Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice has been taken to the cleaners by film reviewers and critics. Here’s what the leading magazines and English dailies had to say about the Hollywood flick which featured A-list actors such as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Diane Lane, Amy Adams and Gal Gadot:-

Batman v Superman” reviews are in, and the general verdict is that the DC blockbuster could be subtitled “Din of Justice.” There’s so much sound and fury and dazzling special effects, but in the end, it signifies what, exactly? That resistance is futile and that we’ll soon have a dozen sequel and spun-off solo projects on the horizon?– The Washington Post

What happens when the stuff that’s supposed to break you out of the monotony is just as monotonous as everything else?– Vox

No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose. It grumbles along for what feels like forever, jinking from subplot to subplot, until two shatteringly expensive-looking fights happen back to back, and the whole thing crunches to a halt– Telegraph

Superman remains something of a work-in-progress. (If nothing else, it’s strange to see Clark Kent cast a more brooding figure than Bruce Wayne.) Daily Planet scenes are even more perfunctory this time around, and Adams’ Lois has plenty to do but little to say– Variety 

Batman v Superman is not so much a superhero movie as it is a story about two mamma’s boys measuring the length of their capes, finding that they disagree, and proceeding to poke each other with threats of ‘you wanna go first?’ for a solid two-and-a-half hours– The Hindustan Times
