Reviews have been pretty bad on Rotten Tomatoes. I'm generally not fond of Rotten Tomatoes, but the number of bad critic reviews are overwhelming.

I'd normally go see this on Friday, however school holidays mean the cinema will be packed out. I'll wait till next week.

Yeah I'm going into this with an open mind. Rotten Tomatoes doesn't always have the most reliable critic sources for their reviews. I loved Man of Steel and I know Collider Movie Talk and certain reviewers that I like enjoyed most of the movie despite a ton of problems. So going to give it a fair shake and see what all the fuss is about.

It's still going to be at least week until I see it, post school holidays (empty cinema).

Yeah, he was good. I don't know if he bettered Christian Bale, who is my favourite Batman, but he certainly played the part well.

Even today having sat with the film in my mind for a day now, I still thought it was excellent.

I really don't understand the critics slamming it. Was it perfect? No. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Solid acting, solid story, solid characters etc.

Saw it Friday afternoon and the first two thirds of it is very messy. Bizarre storytelling and editing. But the last one third of it is just a great knock down drag out similar to Avengers. Loved seeing Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman interact with each other.

I think Ben was phenomenal as Batman. I would love to see stand alone movies with him.

This movie has a kind of a darker tone than the normal superhero movie. It explores some interesting themes that relate to flaws in the characters such as:

Hidden Text:

Batman is essentially driven by his need for vengeance for his parents, but can that devolve too far if he is pushed enough by 20 years of chaos in Gotham? Superman is an all powerful alien who always does what he thinks is right, but what happens if he is wrong, and why does he have the right?

The pacing at the start is a bit weird, and you need to have seen Man of Steel....but aside from those comparatively minor issues, I really throughly enjoyed it as a Batman fan.

It's bizarre to me how people are disliking it.

Definitely agree with this. The beginning was such a mess. I remember people complaining about the way Nolan edited the Batman movies, but at least he can tell a coherent story. There was none of that in the beginning of this movie. The end was very entertaining though.

I read somewhere the directors cut of the movie on BD will be 3 hours long....so perhaps that explains the awkward editing at the start - there's 30+ mins missing.

So this is similar to Watchmen with less violence/sex/swearing? That's how it sounds.
