- Batman V Superman: Sad Affleck… oh it made me chuckle.: Contains Spoilers
I watched it yesterday and enjoyed. I read the critics reviews and if they couldn’t keep track of what was happening they must be a bit on the slow side. It is very much in the style as Man of Steel as you would expect. Ben Afleck was pretty good Batman comparable with Christian Bale. Only gripe was with Batman’s nightmare sections which seemed a bit unnecessary but after reading the fan’s comments afterwards there are a lot of clues to other characters in these but not being the big comic fan these went over my head. It doesn’t feel like a 2hr30min film when you watch as the story progresses well to the end.Posted 3 years agoistoMember
Still think Kick Ass is the best superhero movie ever.
Have you seen Deadpool? It kicks Kick Ass’s ass.
I liked bits of the film. As has been said it is nowhere near as good as the last 3 Batman’s. Superman is incredibly dull in it and Louis Lane is annoying in that she takes accident prone to a whole new level. Wonder Woman is pretty damn cool though.Posted 3 years ago
I saw it with the missus…
Individually, the characters were quite enjoyable – I liked the different take on batman from the previous trilogy.
As a film it was trite. I mean, the best bits were dream sequences. Where/why/how did the weird monster from the end come about.
Like “let’s grow a monster from Zod’s body and my blood and it’ll do exactly what I need it to, and it’ll be finished when this 1 hour timer goes off”.
I can’t bake a cake to that level of timing accuracy, let alone grow an alien…
Mah, makes me angry, wish I’d watched batman begins again.

Took my eldest (14) to see it last night. We even watched Man of Steel again just before going to make sure we were up to speed. No spoilers here but it failed the numb arse test after just 45 minutes. That’s a record btw.
As these superhero/fantasy movies get more ‘real’ this was a throwback to stupidly unbelievable and a real disappointment for me as a fan of the genre. My boy thought it was rubbish which also surprised me. I think my youngest may have enjoyed it but he’s only wee and doesn’t care too much about characters or plot and is too young to go see it anyway (8).
There must be something going on behind the scenes – it can’t be this crap on purpose.Posted 3 years agoMrSalmonMember
That monster stuff totally ruined it
Agree that was the weakest bit. It started to get less interesting when all the wacky stuff/lighting etc started at the crashed ship.
With stuff like that the ‘bigger’ the action gets the less interesting it is, it’s just flashy crackly light and you can’t really see what’s going on.
Also looked a bit too much like the cave troll from the Lord of the Rings to me!Posted 3 years ago
