A boring film which has well shot action sequences with decent performances, the stand out being Robert Downy Jr but the film fails on pacing and especially the plot. The motivations are clear but there isn't enough conflict for me to think they really have a vendetta against each other.
Also characters such as Ant Man and especially HawkEye were just blatantly forced in. In addition to that Spiderman also felt placed in just for the airport fight which you saw in the trailer, he was there for the fight and then just left, the actor of Spiderman (Tom Holland) was good as Peter but as Spiderman he falls flat and this primarily the scripts fault, they force joke after joke and they all fall flat.
Overall this isn't the worse film ever, has a decent opening with some good action sequences but the plot and pacing lets the film down.
This review contains spoilers. (NOT FINISHED)
Right let me get this out of the way, I am not a bias marvel fan, this is my truthful opinion of the film.
I wasn't a big fan of Man of Steel but I still had some expectations for Batman vs Superman because first of all, just the concept of Batman vs Superman could be an epic battle of two of the greatest comic book heroes of all time and second of all Ben Affleck as Batman.
So first before I go into the negatives there are some positives to take away from the film. Ben Affleck is perfect as Batman and his portrayal was amazing. From his broody voice to his stern body language, he embodied everything Batman should be.
The best scene in the entire movie is when Batman goes into a warehouse where there are multiple crooks and to out it simply, Batman had no mercy and brutally killed everyone. People say this was out of character of Batman but the film does give us visual hints on why Batman has gone more ruthless in his older age.
Also the way Zack Snyder handled Batman's origin story was the deinstitutionalises of cinematic and had his unique visual style but the origin isn't to long, it's not a drag, it's perfectly paced and was the perfect way to open the film.
Right now that I have gone through the positives of the film I now must go through why this film is a piece of shit.
The story was so jumbled and the way Zack Snyder constructed the film was dismal. The film is trying to set up the entire DC universe so it can catch up with the Marvel cinematic universe but it cramps to much in but at the same time has some of the most pointless scenes of all time.
The nightmare sequences were pointless to continue the plot, it didn't show you why Batman is more ruthless, it's just an excuse for an action scene because the film is such a bore that the executives at Warner Brothers were like this film is boring as, add some nightmare sequences.
Wonder Woman was only in this film just to set up the Dawn of Justice film and the Gal Gaddot who played Wonder Woman did a fine job but she was just a connivence like when Batman is about to die from Doomsday, out of the blue Wonder Woman comes into to save the day. Convenient.
Jesse Einsberg as Lex Luther. Before I say anything I'm a massive fan of Jesse but in this film he was so miscasted, he reminded me more of the riddler than Lex Luther and people are making excuses that it's Lex Luther, NO, that's just an excuse from the filmmakers because no one liked him.
Right now I never thought I would ever say this but the music by Hans Zimmer just wasn't special, it was good but it wasn't like The Dark Knight trilogy where you would walk out humming the music. To be honest I can hardly remember any music in this film.
Superman sacrifices his life to kill doomsday and so Metropolis honour him but in a newspaper article we clearly see it state that Clark Kent is dead and then we Clark Kent grave with him in the grave, so who the hell is in Superman's grave because they would have got Superman's body and would have to put him in his grave so why the fuck is he in Clark Kent's grave. This film defies logic.
An exhilarating action film from start to finish with fantastic action sequences. This new instalment is helmed by Christopher McGuire who shoots the action sequences perfectly by using wide shots and not doing hyper cuts or shaky cam. The acting by the
whole cast is amazing but the two that stand out are Tom Cruise who doesn't seem to age because some of the stunts he does in this film were shocking and Simon Pegg is a comedy genius. This is my favourite Mission impossible film and I can't wait for number 6. I give this film 10/10.
A movie about hope and how to never give up when the odds are against you. With some of the best scenes in motion picture history, great cinematography by Roger Deakins, a captivating story by Stephen King with a great script by Frank Darabont, beautiful music by Thomas Newman and the best performances from Morgan freeman and Tim Robbins. My personal favourite film of all time. I give this film 10/10.
Not the best of the unofficial corner to trilogy but it is still one god damn good film, with smart snappy writing, great action sequences and great performances by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Hilarious from start to finish. Watch it a second time and you will hear more jokes which you didn't hear the first time. I give this film 9/10.
A fantastic film which is able to mix multiple genres together to create one of the funniest horror films of all time. With intense zombie scenes but filled with jokes which you might not hear the first time. Great acting by the whole cast but the chemistry between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost is uncanny. I give this film 10/10.
This is my biggest guilty pleasure of all time, I know this film is God awful, from the directing to the writing and the stereotypical villain but I honestly don't care it was just popcorn entertainment and seeing Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills is always good. The plot of this film is basically the plot of The Fugitive. This film is so bad it's good and that's why I give this film 6/10.
The sequel which could have started off one of the best action franchises of all time but ultimately fell flat. The movie is poorly directed by Olivier Megaton who over used shaky cam, the writing is cliched and stupid but to be honest I can't help but like it for being so bad, there is some redeeming factors like Liam Neeson who always puts in a great performance but overall the film is stupid and that's why I like it. I give this film 6/10.
Liam Neeson plays a badass who must save his daughter. A simple but very effective plot. This film started the trend of Liam Neeson being an action hero and I can tell you one thing if I got a phone call from him I would shitting it. The acting was superb especially Liam. Neeson who was able to show both his dramatic chops but also his action chops. The movie has great action scenes which leave you on the edge of your seat. I give this film 9/10
A great satire of all the old Bond films. A story about believing in yourself and getting the best out of yourself. Fantastic action sequences especially the first fight in the Pub. Filled with humour which pull all the right chords. The acting across the board is amazing especially Taron Egeryon as Gary he shows his transformation from a low life crook to a civilised man fantastically. I give this film 9/10.
What a piece of shit, this is the worse possibly way to end one of the greatest horror franchises of all time, the film felt like two films in one and was a complete mess. The acting was dreadful, the traps were poor and unoriginal. The ending was ok and the only redeeming part of the film. Honestly lets hope that they make a Saw 8 because I don't won't the saw franchise to end on this shit storm. I give this film 1/10.
