Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

A film about how difficult it is to do good in a world that would rather spend countless days and weeks determining who is worth saving. Politicians and working class people are lied to and manipulated by the real supervillains who don’t need to mask their presence with theatricality; they’re busy lining the right pockets or shaking the correct hands. The Batman is a symbol conjured by a scared little boy in the mind of a broken man. The Superman isn’t a mask, it’s an honest person trying to do honest work even as his cape is pulled in every direction by powerful agendas. A senator spends time discussing the mechanics of power on talk shows and public hearings while the president of the United States orders a nuclear strike within mere seconds of learning new information. The power of belief in our fellow men can save the world.

I’ve never been so glad to be wrong about a movie.
