Acting

Ben Affleck plays his part with a great beauty. Comparing him with is Christian Bale, Affleck was equally good. Henry Cavill also played his part pretty much as expected. The other supporting actors have also done a good job. No complaints in any performances here.

Direction
It was a typical Zack Snyder direction. One cannot go wrong if he is a Snyder. The cinematography is commendable here.
Full Marks in Direction.

Dialogues
Not many great lines written in this movie. The dialogues didn’t have much to do with the character built up of each actor. The only memorable and iconic line was the one they have played it in the trailers. “Do you bleed…. You will”.

 Screenplay
Screenplay and GFX had to be good. It’s a D.C. movie after all. Nothing to boast about because it is pretty much expected.

Editing
Editing could have been better. I felt they dragged the end post climax a bit too long.

Story
I am greatly disappointed with the story line created here. The story makes the first half of the movie slow and the graph of the doesn’t rise until the second half. Not a single WOW moment in the first half. I was pretty much disappointed as I didn’t get what was expected and the story line didn’t live up to the hype created .

Overall
Go watch this movie only if you are a D.C. fan

Verdict
My rating is 3/5.
