Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Review

Good

After 2013's beefy Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder goes even bigger and darker with this sequel, cross-pollenating Clark Kent's story with flashbacks to the origins of Bruce Wayne and his Dark Knight alter-ego. The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous. But it looks amazing and is relentlessly gripping.

After a Bat-origin prologue, the story kicks off with the climactic battle from Man of Steel as seen from the perspective of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), watching his city being destroyed by Superman (Henry Cavill). This further fuels the rage that began when his parents were murdered. And that fire is stoked by the mischievous millionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Meanwhile, Superman/Clark is struggling with how the world is revering him as a god, which is straining his relationship with intrepid reporter Lois (Amy Adams). As these very different vigilante heros head toward a climactic confrontation, Luthor is up to something seriously nefarious. And the ensuing chaos brings another hero into the open, Wonder Woman Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).

While the various plot threads are fascinating, and Snyder maintains a snappy pace, the overall story centres on the fact that Affleck's prickly, bitter Bruce is easily manipulated into doing terrible things, which makes him rather unlikeable. And Cavill's fundamentally good Clark isn't much easier to identify with. Both are also oddly constrained by their costumes and bulked-up physicalities, which leave them unable to move properly. This allows the side characters to steal the show: Adams adds emotion and passion, Eisenberg provides the nutty nastiness, Irons is hilariously cynical as Bruce's butler Alfred, and Fishburne is all bluster as Lois' editor. But in the end, the film belongs to the gorgeous, clear-headed Gadot, instantly making her stand-alone movie the most anticipated superhero project on the horizon.

Vera Farmiga: 'Negative Mysticism Is Emotionally Taxing'


Vera Farmiga Patrick Wilson

The 42-year-old actress reprises her role as real-life ghostbuster Lorraine Warren in the supernatural sequel. While the tone of the movie is undoubtedly dark and scary, Vera enjoyed lightening the mood on set with Patrick, who plays her partner Ed Warren.

"I’m very close with Patrick, so just partnering up with him is really like stepping into your old comfy pair of shoes," Vera told Collider.com. "He’s a good friend. He’s a very, very good friend. His wife is one of my best friends. So that closeness, I think, lends itself to that familiarity. And we have a blast doing it. It’s dark. Exploring negative mysticism is not fun. It’s arduous, it’s emotionally taxing. But, in between takes, and you’ll see, we’re so silly."

The first film was definitely a challenge for Vera, who is mother to two children with her husband Renn Hawkey. The tales of children affected by supernatural activity proved difficult for the actress to switch off from when it came to her own family life.

Patrick Wilson Lived In Late Grandmother's House While Shooting New Film


Patrick Wilson

The Wilson boys spent their summers in Big Stone Gap, where their grandmother passed away nine months before filming started.

Patrick tells WENN, "Our dad was a TV anchor up until last year and we lived in Virginia as kids. Several generations of the Wilsons have been in Big Stone Gap, so for us it has really been the most personal project I've been a part of. We stayed in the house that my grandmother lived in most of her life. It was very grounding."

"We were on Wilson Road in the house that was more or less the most fun place we could ever go to as kids," Paul adds. "It was named for our family; our grandfather and his brothers and sisters were born up the road. The last living first generation Wilson, our great aunt Opal, has a place there and she'll be 100 in March.
