The Worst ‘Batman v Superman’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
On our ninth episode: With a new Batman movie in theaters, let’s look at the last one, with Ben Affleck assuming the role of the Dark Knight (like, super dark) in a movie that critics did not actually rave about. (It’s one of the worst reviewed Batman movies ever, in fact.) The Dawn of Justice made a whole lot of money, and Justice League is hot on its heels. But there were still plenty of reviews to choose from for this new Critics Are Raving! trailer.
