Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice

Okay InnMates

Last night I went to a late night showing of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

My intent here is to Not Provide Spoilers for those of you have Not seen the movie.

There has been a lot of negative reviews, so a large portion of the viewing public is riding the fence on whether to go see this movie or just ignore it.

First, you need to make sure that your bladder is drained because after all the Previews, the actual movie runs 2 hours and 31 minutes.

My friend and I attended the 11pm showing and walked out of the viewing theatre into the hallway at 1:49am.

If you are expecting an Avengers type movie, then you should wait until May 6 for the opening of Captain America: Civil War.

Public Service Spoiler If you decide to watch all the credits (I enjoy watching them while other movie patrons crowd their way to the exits) and are expecting to see a 'Preview Clip' like most Marvel Super Hero Movies, then you are wasting your time, because there is No Preview Clip at the end of the Credits.

Again, this movie is not a Marvel Super Hero type movie.

It is a bit similar to the 'feel' of the current Daredevil Season 2 on Netflix (I have watched 3 episodes) but again, it is a DC Movie and Not a Marvel Movie.

However, if you enjoyed the Frank Miller type Batman comics, then you should enjoy this movie.

It may get a little tedious, but it is well worth watching this movie, because the Script from start to finish sets the stage for the future Justice League and Wonder Woman movies.

Ben Affleck is both a grittier Bruce Wayne & Batman.

The first Super Hero Comic that I ever read was 'The Brave & Bold featuring the Justice League vs Amazo'.

Marvel Comics were consistently better reads for me when I was in High School.

I prefer the Marvel Super Hero Movies, but I would probably watch 'Dawn of Justice' again sometime.

Also, for the record, last night while in the theater lobby, I told my friend that I was looking forward to seeing the DC Comics 'Suicide Squad' movie more than I was looking forward to watching 'Dawn of Justice'.

After seeing 'Dawn of Justice' the 'Suicide Squad' movie is now a 'Must See' as my Expectations are Much Higher!

Last night was Not a Waste of My Time Nor My Money!

If you have not seen the clip of the upcoming Wonder Woman movie then check it out here:

I will definitely go see 'Wonder Woman' and the future 'Justice League' movies when they are released.

Agree

It is definitely worth seeing. It isn't the Avengers but a darker universe.

Loved Wonder Woman. I didn't realize she was such a kick ass. Loved it!

Yeah there was no after credit scenes as DC likes to give you all the little bits at the end before the credits.

I wont elaborate what came out of the ending as I don't want to post any Spoilers here.

So go see it! Nuff said!

Blah

It may get a little tedious, but it is well worth watching this movie, because the Script from start to finish sets the stage for the future Justice League and Wonder Woman movies.

You've actually just convinced me to avoid this one. It's something a lot of superhero movies do that really grates on me - they make a two and a half hour slog of a movie that doesn't do much except set up another long movie that potentially sets up another one, all while forgetting to make THIS ONE any good. It's also possible to make a movie worth watching that also sets up a long line of sequels (See Iron Man, Mad Max, Captain America...)

The fact is, a Justice League movie - ok, ANY movie, ought to be able to set itself up in the first half hour, especially given the protracted run times we've been dealt for the past decade or so. Especially superhero teamup movies. "Big Bad - Can't beat. Get Wonderwoman, Superman, and Batman. Heck, get Squirrel Girl. We need the whole crew." Boom. Done.

I think this is why I enjoy origin stories as much as I do. The filmmakers have to build an audience from almost nothing, and as a result they make a captivating movie. When the audence is baked into the franchise a la Batman & Superman, they can get away with murder.

Ok, rant over. Obviously enjoyment is a very subjective thing and it isn't my job to tell you what's good. This movie clearly isn't for me though.
