BvS doesn't deserve the hate

Tags: movie film batman

Before I go about defending this DC Film, I'll start by saying I am a HUGE Marvel fan. In fact, I literally will say ironman 3 is good after a 3 am re-watch. So, this means a lot. First, I want to say before the last couple days before the premiere dozens of reporters were giving this film rave reviews. Then something happened, whatever it was caused a wave of "Highly Touted" critics bashing this Movie to hell. Some would go on to say this is the worst superhero film created like X-Men 3 and Fantastic 4 don't exist but I digress. I saw the movie and I'm here to tell you that yes the movie has flaws, but overall it layered the ground work for later films such as Justice League and the members stand alone movies. The problem I feel that is secretly drawing the ire of many moviegoers is that the trailers were VERY misleading, in that they showed the movie as BATMAN VS SUPERMAN: ALL OUT WAR. When in reality it was really, Batman Meets Superman: Dawn of Justice. Part of this i feel was that DC, in my opinion, got a little tight and caved copying the theme of Marvel's highly anticipated film, "Captain America: Civil War." In that movie, the two biggest stars of the film Cap and Stark go toe to toe a lot and fighting is the main theme throughout the movie. And that's where I feel DC dropped the ball, they should've focused more in the trailers on Batman discovering Superman and teasing us on when they first meet. Because when Batman finally meets the Man of Steel himself, it is easily a top 5 moment in comic cinematic universe. Moviegoers also after the reviews went in with the mindset that, this wasn't a Man of Steel sequel at all. Batman is being rebooted I feel like many people are not understanding that the criticism that the movie focuses more on Bruce and the Dark Knight is because we are first meeting him. After realizing all those points, one should see that no this movie was the greatest or perfect but what it did was set the vines and branches for a beautiful universe and hopefully long run. The Doomsday fight scene was absolutely bad-ass and even the naysayers can't hate on Wonder Women's reveal (Her theme music was A1). Cyborg, Aquaman, and the Flash all got their own little easter egg reveal, which yes could've gone better but remember rome wasn't built in one day. Easter Eggs were all over this film, it was like zack snyder knew us comic heads would be able to catch every single one. Darkseid gets hinted in the Batman nightmare sequence in which see his signature symbol engraved in the dirt with The Flash giving Bruce a secret message or was it simply a dream ? I say he was warning him for Darkseid or Superman has gone full heel turn and is killing the Justice League like the injustice comic. I'm hoping for the latter but I'm more sure on the former. All in all, this movie served its purpose, Batman got his proper reboot and finally, by the way we get a perfect Bruce Wayne and I mean it. BatFleck killed his role and made me a known Batman hater give ooohs and ahhhs during his fight scenes. We met Wonder Women and she got her own fight scenes and moments of triumph which, will only boost her hype for her stand alone movie dropping next summer. Superman's story developed more and it seems like Zack Snyder is not budging, going guns blazing with this more dark superman. I love it personally, never liked the original superman almost felt fake and boring, a Heel version of himself adds interest and more depth to his character as he struggles between the lines of living among humans as a god. Finally, we got to meet the other members of the Justice League as I talked about earlier in this piece. Erza Miller is giving me the vibe i got when Ben Affleck said he would assume the role as the Bat himself. I'm totally fine with him and Grant Gustin being two completely different flash's because it is clear that Snyder is going all in on this dark tone, which ironically is DC's tone but lets bash him some more. Aquaman's easter egg was my favorite, seeing the mighty god of the sea send a lex luthor spy spiraling in the ocean with just a little push of his Trident was enough to have me grinning ear to ear. Cyborg's was tricking because you wonder if they showed too much since not many people know his origin but then you see the motherbox forge with him and start screaming like a baby. So, my fellow comic book fan's, go see the film yourself and form your own opinions. Don't read any reviews before going (including this one) and have a free mind to make your own judgements, thats what I did and when I looked at them after loving the movie I knew the math wasn't adding up. This movie is a comic film if there ever was one and that in itself means something, so screw those critics and enjoy the building block to the universe we watched as kids hit the big screen.
