An honest review of Batman Vs. Superman

An Honest Review of Batman vs. Superman

Unlike many who are so vocal in their criticism of Batman vs, Superman, I’ve actually seen the movie and am able to give a straightforward account of whether or not you should see it.

First, I’ll give the positives. All the actors involved did an excellent job. Especially Affleck whose portrayal of an aging, brooding, angry crime-fighter really brings Batman to life.

In addition, there are some really wow moments that catch you off guard. The action scenes are well done, especially Batman’s, who comes off as far more menacing to criminals than Bale ever did.

Cavill as Supermen is a bit more fleshed out than he was in Man of Steel, and his arrogance, smugness and self-righteousness, make you want to see Batman smack him around a bit

And smack him around he does, and what’s the real case here is that Batman views Superman as a dangerous threat to all mankind, so dangerous that he must be killed. 

On the other hand, Superman views Batman as a murderous vigilante, who not only brutally injures his victims but tortures them as well.  

Great set up for a to the death battle. And had it been left to that, this movie would probably outsell Titanic. But alas that was not to be.

Here’s where it runs into problems and there are a lot of them. First, Snyder doesn’t vary the pace. Fight scenes, romance scenes, suspense scenes, discovery scenes, all run at the same pace and length of time

We get it! Get on with it!

And how many time must we watch Bruce Wayne’s parents get killed? There’s a good twenty minutes completely unnecessary. Then there are Batman’s nightmares/hallucinations, which include a scene of him in the desert, fighting a group of soldiers wearing the Superman insignia. Then some guy in red suddenly showing up on Batman’s monitor frantically warning him about something about Lois


So yes, there are issues and the main one is that the movie is overdone. Too many hints to the next movie, too many villains, too many plot twists, and too little original story.

Still, I suggest you see it. And see it on the big screen. The one real selling point of is the portrayal of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman as real, flawed and immensely powerful characters. They are nothing like the superheroes we’ve seen in previous movies. Affleck’ Batman is a frightening, unforgiving scourge to criminals. Superman is portrayed as almost god-like, looking down on those in need like ants. And Wonder Woman is an Amazon warrior, fearless, battle tested and unhesitant when it comes to killing the enemy.

In regard to the follow-up movie, the only change I would make is the director. Snyder made a grand and spectacular movie but has no idea how to vary tone and pace, which is the criticism most have made about the film. It doesn’t sprint, it lumbers.

What we do have are great characters, and a superb cast that brings them to life.  All this series needs is a director who understands the genre, and can keep its audience on the edge of their seat like those who have directed the Marvel series have.

So there you have it, I await your scathing rebuttals J

Financial Freedom in 14 days.

Financial Freedom in 14 days.

 Written by Zackary Richards for Ari Communications

Yeah, I know you don’t believe it. In this downsized economy everybody is offering you a get rich quick scheme, or some special, magical, software that will generate millions with the push of a button.

And regrettably there are some people so desperate that they will fall for such come-ons.

But what I’m about to show you is an actual job. I know because I’ve been working this job for the last 5 years and I’m presently making 4 times the salary I made in corporate.

And I know what I’m talking about because I’ve written several books on the topic. 

What I’m about to tell you is important so please pay close attention.

The Industrial revolution ended with the creation of the internet because the internet made it possible for anyone to purchase products at the same price as Big Box stores. The internet also eliminated several hundred jobs. Many that required an expensive education. How many co-workers lost their jobs over the last few years? Were you one of them?

Look around, It’s obvious that everything is changing. And changing very fast.

The one thing that hasn’t changed is the need of a steady income. And that is why it is absolutely essential that you learn how to make additional money. Because in today’s economy NO JOB IS SECURE!

Except mine.

That’s right. My job is secure. Why? Because I learned how to make money. And no, it wasn’t easy. If it were then everyone would have the financial freedom I have.

 The difference is that I decided to do it. I hated the fact that someone else controlled how much money I made. That someone else dictated when I would get up in the morning, where I would go, what I would do, when I would eat and when I would leave.

And on top of that, have the power to eliminate my sole source of income, which could seriously endanger my welfare as well as that of my family.

I saw how others did it and made up my mind to learn what they knew and take action.

So the last question you’re probably asking is if what I’m doing is so great and I’m making so much money doing it, why am I offering it to you for free?

It’s because online business is the future of business. Just as people went from the farms to the factories 100+ years ago.  The time has come for us to go from the factories to our own online businesses. Because the future of steady income is the ability to generate it for ourselves, not for someone else.

Here’s how it works…

You sign up for the free 14 days course. Watch one video a day for 14 days. At the end, you will know how to create a successful online business. You need not buy anything but some of the software they offer really helps and it comes with a 30-day free trial so there’s nothing to lose.

So, like I said before. Look around. This is opportunity knocking and it doesn’t cost a dime to give it a look. If you need more income, if you’re exhausted by the daily grind, if you’re doing two or three jobs, if you’re struggling to make ends meet, isn’t it time you did something about it?

If you’ve been waiting for that one opportunity, for your ship to finally come in, then here it is, Financial freedom in 14 days
