This film is much better the second time around, in my opinion. I liked it the first time, but thought it was a bit of a hot mess. After a second viewing, pieces and progressions in the story made more sense and it was an overall more enjoyable experience.
I, like many others, thought Jesse Eisenberg's performance was a little over the top and also a little misguided. It seemed to me, he was doing more of a Riddler interpretation than Lex Luthor. But after reading some reviews and reflecting on the performance, it became clear he was trying to do a modern version of Luther, which, can obviously be subject to different portrayals than the original because we haven't really seen what a modern Lex Luthor can be.
Overall, I thought Eisenberg's performance didn't ruin the film, like many thought, but I still don't think it inspired any fear for the villain.
I personally enjoyed the dark tone of the film and thought the dream scene with Batman in the desert was a highlight. I definitely recommend seeing this film again if you've seen it only once before.
One important strength this film has going for it is Henry Cavill's portrayal of Superman. He has proven once more that he is worthy of wearing the cape and donning the boots. He has that certain 'Kryptonian' look, and is also a tremendous actor in my opinion. I would be remiss here if I didn't mention something about Ben Affleck's portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman. I happen to think he did an incredibly good job, despite the furor that erupted from comic book purists over his being cast for the role. For anyone old enough to remember BATMAN '89, very few moviegoers believed Michael Keaton capable of playing Batman well--but he exceeded expectations then didn't he? Ben Affleck was great in this movie, but to be honest I believe his famous face was a little too recognizable to play this iconic role recently vacated by Christian Bale. The stunning Gal Gadot was more than convincing as the latest incarnation of Wonder Woman --and not at all hard to look at of course! Now on to the criticism....
There are several reasons why this film wasn't as good as it should have been. The main reason, in my opinion, was the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Jesse Eisenberg is a talented actor, but his portrayal--or his interpretation of the iconic villain--was awful. Lex Luthor in this movie is a babbling genius(does Lex have Tourette's here?)who can't seem to keep his lengthy hair out of his face(SO annoying). I was expecting Lex Luthor to be more debonair, more formidable, and more of the smooth talking psychopath variety; from Gene Hackman to Kevin Spacey and a few in between. (Favorite Luthor was Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum). Lex Luthor was the main antagonist or villain in this film, and yet I wasn't convinced he was formidable enough to take on any of the meta-humans--Batman included. My final complaint is that the story didn't have me convinced of the enmity or hatred that motivated Superman and Batman to come to blows near the end of the movie. Batman is far too logical or rational to succumb to the emotional judgements that led him to openly oppose the Man of Steel.
Overall, I was very pleased with this movie. It is enjoyable to watch and worth your time investment if you enjoy movies in the superhero genre. Nevertheless, this is not the Blockbuster it should have been for the reasons I have mentioned. 4 stars from me.
