Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ★★★★

"Your parents taught you that you mean something, that you're here for a reason. My parents taught me a different lesson, dying in the gutter for no reason at all: they taught me the world only makes sense if you force it to."

A deconstruction of the mythification and demythification of gods and men; a dark and humorless tale of power and powerlessness, of stakes and consequences, of hope and despair; and a final act that doesn't give two fucks about your cheesy-corny storytelling rules, firing narrative arcs on all cylinders -- a literal Doomsday, especially for the theme park enthusiasts.

Originally seen last March 26, 2016 in Robinsons Galleria.
