“Hello Superman. It’s time you met your doom,” Batman says. With all of the hype surrounding the new “Batman/Superman” movie, I decided to take one for the team and watch so you didn’t have to. Just kidding, I was going to watch it anyway. Unlike most of the general public, these new “Superman” movies don’t bother me too much. I actually sort of like them, even though Superman II will always be my favorite. Man of Steel was so much better than Superman Returns. Next to Christopher Reeve, Henry Cavill is my favorite Superman. OK, Superman is an American hero and Henry is a Brit, but there is something about his look and about him that seems to embody the character. Sorry George Reeves and Brandon Routh. Side note, Brandon Routh is great in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
7. Jimmy Olsen. No explanation needed.
8. The dream sequence. The acting was terrible in this, sorry Ben.

Wonder Woman has been my favorite superhero since I was a little girl. Lynda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me. I wanted to be Wonder Woman, I had my truth lasso, my red boots (knee high socks), my Wonder Woman underoos and I would watch Wonder Woman in my little red rocking chair. Gal Gadot had big red boots to fill, she is not Wonder Woman to me. She isn’t a bad actress, I don’t like Wonder Woman with an accent.
3. Lex Luthor. I don’t like Jessie Eisenberg as a human. I’ve seen interviews with him and he comes off as being arrogant, but boy can this guy act!
4. Henry Cavill with his shirt off.
5. Wonder Woman kicks butt!
I know, I know I said I didn’t like her, but I’m so happy we get to see her in a movie and let’s face it Wonder Woman really does kick some arse. With the box office saturated with male superheroes, it’s nice to see a woman finally take charge. Now future generations have a female superhero to look up to. Having a strong female hero is important for young girls to admire.
All in all, this movie was a fun filled action packed, (with some occasional snooze moments) Batman/Superman adventure. Could it have been better? Of course. Did the acting suck? Why yes it did. Will I purchase it when it comes out on DVD? I most certainly will. If you’re into comic movies, but not overly into the comic book lore, this is an enjoyable movie to watch. This will never be an awarding winning adaption of comic literature and it never set out to be. Just have fun watching it.
I give Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice 3 out of 5 Gerber Daisies. (I should change my Flixster/Rotten Tomatoes review)
