I had the pleasure of watching the Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice film in 3D yesterday courtesy of Qatar Airways and Capital FM.
Two things, Christopher Nolan is a genius and I am not a fan of Comic books or movies based on comics books characters. Now that we have that out of the way, you should go watch the movie Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and see the two heroes muscle it out. The movie premiered Wednesday at the Planet Media Prestige. If you are a fan of the Superman, Batman and Wonder woman you are in for a treat.
Zack Snyder, the director has done a good job by digging into the emotions of the main characters . However, one could not but help feel like there was so many sub plots that led up to an unnecessarily long fight scene that is actually an anti-climax. My heart literally tanked at the end. The effects were also a bit too much at some point. Beauty of having a $250 million budget.
Having a soft spot for words, the occasional jokes that were well delivered, will be a good distraction from all the drama. Ben Affleck gives a good performance for Batman/Bruce Wayne and if you love psychotic characters then Lex Luthor (Jesse Einstein) is your guy. Wonder woman (Gal Gadot) steals the spot from the two heroes when she shows up for war all armoured after seeing her as a lady earlier on in the movie. I cannot say where, no spoilers.
The intensity of the effects in the movie is best felt as a 3D experience though it will get a bit graphic at some point ( Monsters are scary). The movie is rated PG13 and there is also some subtle nudity so you might want to leave the little ones at home. The movie runs for 2h 31min and you are bound to get exhausted. Is the movie worth watching? Yes it is. No promises to your mind being blown but it is Batman Vs. Superman so make a date and buy lots of popcorn because you will be there for a while. Enjoy!
You can watch the movie at Planet Media Cinema at Prestige and Westgate.
