Who could have imagined that the only motive for the two best super heroes on any planet in any universe to face off each other was a kidnapped mother! And if that wasn’t far enough into weird-vile, the reason they don’t kill each other off is cause their mothers share the same first name. Yes, that is how diabolically staggeringly insipid and lacklustre Zack Snyder’s latest super hero film is. Unimaginative, disjointed, abrupt and messy, this is not the clash of the titans we deserve.
Taking off from the overly violent climax of 2013’s Man of Steel, Dawn of Justice takes us into a back story montage that establishes the entire Batman universe for us. Post this, probably the only sensible and seamlessly flowing segment of this overly long mess of a movie, we are introduced to two sulking selfish self-centred and terribly blindsided super heroes, Ben Affleck as Batman and Cavil as Superman. With both these characters looking like they were forced into this trap of a storyline and an absolute lack of flair in its story telling, Dawn of Justice drags along for two and half hours.
Well almost. Cause things do liven up a little with the luminous presence of Godot as Wonder woman. Her entry in costume is the highpoint of an otherwise dead action sequence with a CGI generated monster who would find himself more at home in a Harry Potter spoof parody than this film. There are glimpses of many others as well: Flash, Cyborg, Aqua man- all make an appearance for no apparent reason except for setting the stage for the Justice League films of the future. Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthur is especially grating part of this film, what him channelling his inner Shah Rukh Khan on steroids!
That in fact is a lot of what the film does- instead of concentrating on the now and the present, the epic faceoff between Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent, we are given peeks into the future and prophecies and portends in the form of bizarre dreams Batman seems to have every now and then. Adding to the list of senseless injunctions in the story are the mushy sentimental time outs the plot takes right in the middle of action sequences.
To be fair to Snyder, the film references the source material (more than one here as well) pretty much and does tick off most boxes on the list of showing the Dawn of the Justice League. Yet, one can’t forget or forgive the fact that this film was sold as the battle between two caped vigilantes. On that count primarily the film fails beyond belief.
At two hours and thirty minutes, Dawn of Justice is a dead horse plodding along on the fuel of over violent action pieces that seem to have no point at all. Much like the battle the film promised. What a waste of potential and opportunity. What a waste indeed.
