‘Batman v Superman’: Monstrous, violent and regretful
No one can stop the hyperactive action of the blockbuster “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice“. But the character building in the film caused a lot of regret.
Speaking of superhero films at the moment, no one can deny the dominance of the “superhero movie world” from Marvel Studios and Disney with successive successes in both revenue and art.
However, throughout the history of comic book development, perhaps the two most vivid and memorable survivors are Superman and Batman, the two comic characters of DC Comics.
Historical confrontation on screen
Even Superman (1978) and Batman (1989) are considered pioneers of the genre, giving the genre the status and success of the time.
For the first time in film history, audiences have witnessed Batman and Superman appear together on the big screen, facing each other. Picture: Warner Bros.
Because of this, Batman vs. Superman: Zack Snyder’s Dawn of Justice is especially fond of this year because it is the first time in history that Batman and Superman have appeared, even confronted, in a movie.
Continuing the devastating war between Superman (Henry Cavill) and General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the story of the confrontation between Superman and Batman (Ben Affleck ) who witnessed the devastating consequences that Superman has left behind in the Metropolis.
The contradiction between a superhero of darkness and human emotion and strength is Batman, and an alien superhero with supernatural powers, Superman, is deep. Lex Luthor (Jesse Eissenberg) is a cunning, cold-to-be-machiaw inventor.
The appearance of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) makes the story more complicated. Lex Luthor, by all means, holds the “ultimate weapon” he thinks he can do to defeat Superman.

Zack Snyder’s visual creativity
While the filmmaking scene is not always stable, Zack Snyder’s films have always had the strength to be denied. high image. With Zack Snyder’s close-knit associate Larry Fong, audiences were given 300-year-old celebrities, such as Watchmen (2009) and Sucker Punch (2011).

With Batman v Superman, the Snyder – Fong duo continued to cherish the fans’ expectations of creating a memorable visual impact. Thoroughly shaping the character of the character set in the bleak, cold environment of Metropolis makes the new film atmosphere is deep, emotional, completely different than most superhero movies. Recently released.
Image creativity is a strength, but it is also Zack Snyder’s weakness when some of his films, such as Watchmen or Sucker Punch, have been criticized for overly abusive symbolic images. The connection of the discrete image to the content of the movie, thereby causing the viewer’s emotions to be broken.
It feels like at the beginning of Batman vs. Superman, Snyder has not gotten out of the way when he crammed a lot of segments comparing Superman with the supernatural image, and characterizing the emotional conflicts that were flooding in. mind Batman. Standing alone, these are beautiful segments, cinematic high. But they cut through the rhythm of the film and sometimes make the audience feel a bit short of having to watch so many “movie movies” like that.
