Like Jesse Eisenberg in "Batman v Superman," Leto is overcooked.
When Doerries puts on a show, a Greek chorus from the heavens sings praise of the scale of his ambition, and well, yes... hubris. He has taken the very same Greek dramatists that have inspired the culture wars and the politics of identity, and redeployed them in the service of public health.
The "Social Network" star really shut it down.
I know I am late. I waited forever to go see the Batman vs Superman movie.
Both Batman and Superman are laughing all the way to the nearest Metropolis (or Gotham) bank. Even still, I offer a word of advice. If you go in aware that the film drags a bit more than it should and doesn't contain as many quips as a Joss Whedon adaptation would have, then you'll be better off.
It has been called dark, somber, convoluted, overstuffed, loud, fascist, nihilistic -- and the descriptions go on. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has touches of all that, some more than others. But it's still worth the watch.
