For once, the trailers don't do a film justice. It looks like you're going in to watch a generically bland CGI-fest like the Superman films but, instead, it's actually brilliant. Fun, exciting, touching. I loved it. The final third is perhaps a bit moviemaking-by-numbers and, yes, there is too much CGI at the end, but the rest was so good I'm going to forgive it. And Gal Gadot is great. Watch it!
Brilliant. It's brilliant. And it doesn't really need me to say it, because everyone else is saying it, but this is so much better than batman vs superman. Not because of its "tone" or because it's funny (though it is) but because it's a great, well constructed film that makes you care about batman. And it's so entertaining along the way. Just great fun. Watch it!
Pretty awful, predictable film with childish humour. Way below the talents of Bryan Cranston, obviously. But all the same, in a quiet movie week it'll pass the time. It's not very good but I didn't hate it.
The critics have a point with this film - it's plot is a bit overstuffed and Doomsday is really, really wasted (not to mention generically CGI) - but I didn't care. I expected to hate this film, I was worried about it, but I just loved it actually. It's fun and zips along at such a pace that, honestly, any faults really do not matter. I hated Zack Snyder before, now I'm glad he's signed on for more films. This is easily his best work, and the best Superman film since the early Christopher Reeve ones.
This is a straight-up propaganda film for the Mormon church. I'm English and you don't really get many Mormons in this country, so I didn't come with a whole load of preconceptions. What I think now is that they must be at least a little worried about their image, to produce such a contrived "documentary". All you learn is that Mormons aren't all white (is that a surprise? The filmmakers seem to think it should be) and say bland things about family (as if no one else likes their families?).
To illustrate, in one section about "missionaries" it's noted that there are even "young female missionaries too!". Well, why wouldn't there be? Why only "young" females? It kinda raises more questions than it answers. Watching it, I became more aware of the preconceptions that the filmmakers have about non-Mormons - and how they think Mormons are viewed by non-Mormons - than anything else. Also, there aren't any sections about the Mormon's rules (you'd almost think they didn't have any rules and it's just a social club for people that buy their clothes from catalogues, watching this) or any voices that are critical of the church, which is odd to say the least. The very fact the filmmakers think this film is a convincing propaganda tool tells you more than the actual content of it really will. Watch it for that reason, but have some electronic device with you too, because it gets pretty dull in places.
