“The greatest gladiator duel,” “man against God,” “Earth vs. Krypton”, “legendary confrontation” – uh, how many enthusiastic words were thrown to the side of the second film Zack Snyder in the newly created kinovselennoy publisher DC Comics. They shouted so much that the authors have started to remake the film (and what they have to lose?), Move the prime minister, to shift the accents, adding new scenes. For the premiere of enthusiastic screams subsided, but the roar of indignation grew. And not without reason.
And while the world went (and goes) crazy about the new epic, Veburg shared the general impatience, and suggested waiting to brighten up, put everything on the shelves, determined by the test, but who are you – the mighty kriptonets or Night Knight.
Zack Snyder – talented man. I will forever be grateful to him for what he was able to move the “Guardians” on the screen, even remake the story, but retaining its essence and ideas. Since then he has become skilled in creating beautiful visual effects and graphics solutions, becoming one of the top directors in Hollywood movies with special effects. But, apparently, even geniuses can not store more than a talent, and the more Snyder developed a visual abilities, the less there is no room for anything else. “Sucker Punch” – it is beautiful, it is senseless. “Legend of the Night Watch” – beautiful, bored. With “Man of Steel” he was lucky, no one expected the film plot saturation, all wanted more beautiful frames and less reflection. Snyder took exactly what I wanted the viewer, and this marked the birth of the last kinovselennoy DC and the formation of “Justice League” series of films, which they say for many years.
After the “Man of Steel” was to be its sequel, but a sequel grew, first to “Batman vs. Superman” as Batman in the film was almost more than Superman, and then to “Batman vs. Superman: At the dawn of Justice” because the producers really wanted to push into the movie as many characters as possible, that they will now remove a number of solo albums: “Wonder woman” (2017), “Aquaman” (2018), “Flash” (2018) and “Cyborg” (2020 ). As a result, references to them and coming “the League” (2017) movie literally clogged.
Because all new job Snyder became similar to some ghastly salad, made of different components, which are themselves still can and would be nothing but a combination of strange happened. To mend the collision of two pivot characters long and filmmaker brings before gradually that sometimes you can even forget that it is about the confrontation and was filmed originally. Enthusiasm by the stories and new characters to play with the picture is very bad joke – from “Batman vs. Superman” can be tired even before it is the opposition going to happen. And when it does happen, it may be that it would be worthless, because before it went limp and a half hours of training uninteresting.
And the idea for the first hour and a half (and the film, meanwhile, is two and a half), you can manage to tell a lot, but the motivation of the main villain of the film, Lex Luther, and has remained a mystery. Reduce everything to “kill all the men, because I had a bad dad!” Worthy series “Futurama”, but certainly not one of the most brilliant villains, whose intelligence is not just won all the superpower of the hero from Krypton. Well, even if we would have dug up the motivation, anyway, any of its plans was a strange and helpless. Well, we was vented and human kriptontsa. Well, we have created Doomsday, which even Lex could not control, and it would destroy the whole world. Okay, okay, thousands of stupid things, but because even they all are not limited to, for the end will still make reference to the “League”, and say, they say, all that you have seen no one values because it will continue to be interesting.
Oh yes, the creators right after “Batman vs Superman” will definitely be interesting as dull than the current movie does not take off work. No acting (Jeremy Irons, seriously, the best of all existing Alfredo and the only really bright spot in the film) or the soundtrack (Zimmer always beautiful) or an abundance of special effects of this are not correct. The story has been rewritten so many times that pieces of paper with him were black marks erased pencil eraser. There are movies that sag in some places, as “Batman vs Superman” makes it almost impossible – he manages not to sag in some places, as in the rest of dull trudge along the rusty rails scenario stories.
Screaming that can be removed better, I will not. “Batman vs Superman” – is not a problem shooting, is a problem of all approaches, concepts and designs. The film is full of silly characters, illogical actions and inappropriately thrown phrases, he focuses on the fact on which in any case can not be accented in the action-packed movie, and all the good that could be in the movie, just drowning, due to inability of the director and producers to find their way. For a start could be removed from the scene of the meta-humans, and then spool the intelligence of Lois Lane at least to the level of “2” on a scale. The film would not save it, but also so many bad things can not be said about him.
Well, just now you can say bad, then myself, I want to throw a couple of rotten vegetables in the marketing of the film and in our dear domestic distributors. Firstly, because they have merged the main enemy of the film, and then clumsily justified, that he was not in charge. As justification, they rolled out a brazen lie, depriving the film one of the main intrigues him, and if you saw all the trailers “Batman vs Superman”, in the course of all the entertainment that was in the picture. The meaning of all go to the movies is now?
Second tomatoes, as promised, is addressed to distributors who, fighting against piracy, we decided to throw our city on a standard premiere on Thursday, and for which tickets have already been sold. Instead, to prevent, for example, 2D-only sessions, or deprived of the right hire all the “at fault” theater, they show a number of deprived urban whole. Say, where is now my personal respect for him? Oh, I will not. It is better to move on to the estimates.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016 Final verdict
Could not a good director Zack Snyder to hold the bar, was not able to do even half as good as the “man of steel” and as a result has created one of the most boring films by DC Comics. Now I’d better go, “Green Lantern” will reconsider, at least it was funny.
