The review embargo for the highly anticipated movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been lifted and the first reactions from critics have been revealed!
The reviews seem to be mixed, with some critics pointing out strong performances, especially from Wonder Woman newcomer Gal Gadot. Read some review excerpts below:
The Wrap: “The movie’s only female non-pawn or hostage, Gal Gadot‘s Amazon warrior saves this sludgy epic from superhero sameness.”
Entertainment Weekly gives the film a C+: “Dawn of Justice starts off as an intriguing meditation about two superheroes turning to an all-too-human emotion: hatred out of fear of the unknown. Two and a half hours later it winds up somewhere very far from that—but at the same time, all too familiar. It’s another numbing smash-and-bash orgy of CGI mayhem with an ending that leaves the door open wide enough to justify the next 10 installments. Is it too late to demand a rematch?”
Forbes: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is one of the most visually beautiful comic book movies you have ever seen. The picture is filled with moments of visual poetry and pure cinema in a way that resembles one glorious splash page after another.”
Uproxx: “I came for the escapism. I looked forward to the escapism. I wanted to embrace the escapism. But sometimes even Superman will let you down.”
