Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Comic Action


 

Superman's aid to society comes under question after the fallout of his confrontation with General Zod, and continuous collateral damage he leaves in his path.

For all its scale and enterprise, "Batman v Superman" falters under the weight of a rudimentary plot. It seems any form of character progression was better served in previous films. In this outing, a large proponent of the running time is spent building upon the uninspired grudge at the center of story. The rest is occupied by heavy CGI visuals and extensive action set pieces we've become accustomed to. While the film never descends into boredom, it's frustrating that so many key elements are lacking, considering its size and promise. The dawn of further spin-offs.
