Batman and Superman are at war in this dark superhero film.

A story of revenge and a struggle to fit in are the fuel that drives these heroes to battle.

This film is a continuation of director Zach Snyder’s “Man of Steel” movie series.

Superman, portrayed by Henry Cavill, has been shunned by humanity for his ability to destroy whoever and whatever at his will.

The United States’ government and LexCorp CEO Lex Luthor, portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg, want to find ways to keep Superman from destroying humanity.

Superman has also attracted the attention of Bruce Wayne and his vigilante persona of Batman, portrayed by Ben Affleck.

Batman blames Superman for the death and destruction that occurred in Metropolis when Superman battled General Zod in “Man of Steel”.

Batman’s actions in this movie had me questioning his hero status.

The movie even nods to a more criminal Batman when Bruce Wayne tells Alfred that he has been a villain for over 20 years.

The thought of Batman being a villain and Superman being an unchecked god helped the underlying theme of the movie stand out.

This theme is the humanity in all of us. Everyone is human, therefore we are not perfect.

Varying parts of the movie were what I expected from a superhero film. Action sequences were well crafted.

Batman and Superman were both roughed up in their fight.

The character portrayal by both actors was also good, although the casting of Jesse Eisenburg as Lex Luthor was not the best decision.

The introduction of Wonder Woman, portrayed by Gal Gadot, was a fresh sight to the big screen.

She has been noticeably absent in recent years and her addition to this movie was well received.

Though the reason she was in the same city was a weak reasoning.

Some plot devices were weak.

Certain major character decisions were determined on such minor actions.

I felt that these weak decisions would have drastically changed the outcome of the movie if they were not present.

The movie was a good portrayal of the characters in a whole.

Action sequences and the actor’s ability to make the characters seem authentic helped make this movie one worth seeing.
