Batman, the billionaire Bruce Wayne who is a hero that oversees Gotham City fighting crime vs the world wide Kryptonian “God” who dissented from a planet on another galaxy. With the much anticipated Batman vs Superman movie finally here, was it worth the wait?

The movie starts with a continuation of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel with General Zod attacking Earth fighting Superman, and in the midst of the fight, the battle impacts places worldwide, affecting places like Gotham City, destroying the Wayne Enterprises building killing many of Bruce Wayne’s colleagues and fellow workers. This sets up the rage that Batman now has towards Superman. Superman’s dislike towards Batman begins when he sees the news portraying Batman as a “criminal.”

For those who are fans of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, you will be unpleasantly surprised in the transition that Snyder takes in terms of the new violent and brutal ways Batman takes in dealing with criminals in Gotham.

One of the biggest issues is that every scene was incredibly longer than it should have been. As Ken Hanke mentions in his review, Snyder felt “compelled to take what is actually a fairly simple story, [and] drag it out for two-and-a-half hours”. The character development of Lex Luthor (main villain) throughout the movie was also kind of mediocre, and incomparable to other villains like Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight.

This movie isn’t for everybody. For those people who like unnecessarily long movies and are willing to sit through a movie with very little comical or emotional moments, then yes this movie is for you. this was a horrible way to begin what seems to be the beginning of a sequel, and all that we can hope for is that Snyder has learned from his mistakes and won’t implement them in the following movies.

Final score: 5.5/10
