REVIEW: Last review in this #ZackSnyder series before #JusticeLeague now - it's time for #BatmanvSuperman .
WHAT I LIKED: Once again - much like in 'Man of Steel,' - the first hour of 'Batman v Superman' is often pretty great; featuring some brilliant action sequences, some iconic moments and a whole host of truly excellent visual effects and sound work from Hans Zimmer. It also explores the odd idea in a slightly more sophisticated way than Snyder has been known for, and grounds a brilliant version of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Ben Affleck along the way.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Sadly though, whilst some seeds are well-planted, few grow properly, and instead of a proper exploration, the film pulls another 'Man of Steel' on us. Yes unfortunately, about an hour in, the plot decides to turn in a new and uninteresting direction, and as a result the entire final act is yet again full of stuff that entirely disconnects and dis-engages. I literally didn't care an ounce by the end, and that was hugely emphasised by a complete un-doing of Superman's brilliantly established character as the film progressed.
VERDICT: 2/5 - Once again it's a case of great set-up, shame about the delivery. Wow is this one boring mess of a film by the end.
So there are my thoughts on 'Batman v Superman,' what are yours? Let me know below.

Lately I'm loving Damian more and more. I mean I've always loved him, but lately his character has been having so much development and I'm living for it!!!
