Dawn of Justice was exceptional! I am glad that is out-of-the-way now as I have said it out loud. I came to this movie with a bad sense of what I expected and immediately I was caught up.
The Superman hero was played extremely well by Henry Cavill. I really love Christopher Reeve so I find that I always arrive expecting the actor to never be capable of living up to his standards. I was impressed by Henry in the last movie, but he outdid himself this time.
Batman was played by Ben Affleck in this movie. Ben has received mixed reviews but by the end I was proudly stating that he is one of the best to play the dark character. I was so impressed; I came home to look at other Ben Affleck movies to go over his acting career.
The surprise stand out for us was Wonder Woman. As a young girl I remember having a Wonder Woman outfit and I was very proud to wear it out as much as I possibly could. I also remember how sad I was when I grew out of it. She played the strong Amazonian woman that would be expected and Gal Gadot was stunning. I can see this girl creating a need for a whole new generation to buy their costumes for the kids or for the next Supernova Pop Culture Expo.
I think that the inner nerd in all of us has been waiting for an excuse to get out there and be seen. If the Avengers movies are not your thing, then the Justice League should fill your quota. The heros are heroic the bad guys are really bad and the scenery used is so incredible that you forget that you are watching a movie. The fight scenes really tear the place up and make you feel the impact when someone gets hit.
For those of you who know the Lex Luthor character, played by Jesse Eisenberg is quite amusing. As with the usual bad guys, you kind of want them to live so that you can see what else they get up to.
I did feel that they could have possibly cut out an hour and adding in the characters of the future Justice League was too much. The story line was more than enough on its own without sidelining to what felt like a trailer for the next movie, within the current movie.
Overall I loved it and can’t wait for the next Justice League movie to come out. The critics are crazy. Batman Vs Superman was fantastic.
