Batman v.Superman Dawn of Justice Review: Brave and Bold!
Following the events of Man of Steel, Batman v.Superman centers on the stories of Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Seeing the destruction of Metropolis first hand, Batman fears that another incident created by the Man of Steel could lead to a worse event. So the Dark Knight does everything in his power to find a way to challenge Superman. An opportunity presents itself when Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) discovers a mineral that can weaken Superman. This revelation leads to Batman finding the kryptonite so that he has an edge over the son of Krypton. However the Dark Knight's objective only falls right into the sinister plans of Lex Luthor.
Batman v.Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a typical superhero film; nor is it your everyday blockbuster. I would go as far to say that Dawn of Justice is the most ambitious comic book film that Warner Bros, DC and Zack Snyder have ever created. From the narrative to the direction, this superhero film came off as something different; and while its ambitious nature did hinder the movie's presentation, it did not prevent the movie from standing out. This film may not have been what I was expecting, but Batman v.Superman debuted the DC Extended Universe in a dynamic fashion as this blockbuster was indeed a rare cinematic experience.
