Batman Affleck by donchild Batman Affleck by donchild
Having seen Batman v Superman three times now, I can recognise that whilst being undeniably flawed there's a few gold nuggets in there. First and foremost Ben Affleck's spot on performance/s as Batman & Bruce Wayne, also all scenes with himself and 'Jeremy Irons Alfred' worked a treat and give's me strong hope for this solo movie that Affleck is supposed to be directing. The main problem with the movie as far as I'm concerned is the somewhat haphazard manner in which scenes seem to be slapped together! I get the sense that Zack Snyder and his writer's overloaded the script with so many subplots, resulting in a final cut that feels as if scenes have been yanked out all over the place to bring the running time down. Yep the tone was also pretty relentlessly downbeat and for many that's a glaring issue, but that doesn't bother me so much (I'll expect more humour with the Justice League).


Being a longtime, huge Batman fan my primary concern was Affleck's work, and he didn't disappoint in the least. Bring on that solo Batflick!!

Excellent work Don! The detail in the armor had to take some time! I'm not an Affleck fan, but I thought he made a very good Batman. I felt like the movie was shot like a music video instead of a movie. I hope they get a better director in the future as the cast is great!

Appreciated Karen. I liked the film but agree that it has it's problems, particularly the disjointed nature of the story. Hopefully this solo Affleck Batman movie will turn out well!

i was also one of those people who was concern about ben being batman but he nailed it. i just wish they didnt make him ( bruce ) older( i know they did that because of the whole dark knight returns thing) but that bugged me ..  awesome job tho

Thanks, I personally like the older, more weathered Batman, if only from the point of seeing a different kind of cinematic take on the character.

Surprisingly, I liked Affleck in the movie. The rest was just a cold, sometimes boring movie - very technocrat (if that is a word).

I can see why so many people didn't like the film, but I enjoyed it quite a bit myself despite it's problems

what I really don't like about it, was that they all (even Superman) seem to be a bit demented
