BvS revisited

A couple of weeks ago we got a free weekend of HBO. I DVR'd Batman v. Superman to see it again and determine if it sucks as bad as I remember.

Oh, yes it does.

Read my earlier review by clicking above. Here's something I didn't cover then.

Jessie Eisenberg, as Lex Luthor, is a trainwreck. He's mumbly, incoherent, babbling and not very geniusy at all. There's a big moment where Luthor introduces Bruce Wayne to Clark Kent and he goes on like it's a huge deal. Of course it is to fans of Batman and Superman, but why would it be a big deal within the movie? Clark Kent is just a reporter. He's not particularly famous or anything. So why would Lex act like it's important? Clumsy effort.

The best thing in the film by far is still Wonder Woman.

Other than that. Ugh.

Yes, this is a terrible movie. I can only think that the reason Lex acts like it's a big deal to introduce Clark and Bruce is because he apparently knows everything about every superhero, as implied by the video on his flash drive. Ugh, indeed.

Yeah, you're right. Lex has figured out who they are, which becomes obvious later, but they don't ever really show how he figured out who Clark Kent is. It's more obvious that Batman is Bruce Wayne.
