A Review of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) by Zack Snyder (Director)
According to the reviews, the 2016 DC Comics film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,
directed by Zack Snyder, was a disappointment. It was the eagerly anticipated first
appearance of Batman and Superman together on the big screen and a box office success,
grossing $166 million in North America and $422.5 million worldwide in its opening
weekend, to become the fourth largest global opening of all time (Box Office Mojo, 2016).
But ultimately, the film received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike, with fan-site
Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 27 percent rating, signifying a bad film (Rotten Tomatoes,
2016), and Metacritic a metascore of 44 percent from 51 critics, indicating mixed or average reviews (Metacritic, 2016). For many, it failed to be the film they had hoped for (Kermode, 2016).
