Review: Batman v Superman
Were we the only ones to like it?
Ignore the haters: critical knives were out for this from day one and while it’s not perfect, this is certainly worth your interest. The plot’s right there in the title, but it takes a surprising amount of time before the ninja vigilante and Space Jesus face off; instead, we get a backdoor Batman flick where Affleck’s Bruce Wayne gives a rare incidence of actually being the uber-detective of the comics. His point, that Superman is too much an unknown quantity to trust after the devastation he wrought in Man Of Steel, is well-made, and while there is a HUGE amount of time spent awkwardly setting up future films, their dust-up does satisfy – even though there’s still a third of the film to go after their story feels told.
