Oh dear, I should really stop going to see sequels.  I may even have fallen asleep at some point as I lost the plot quite early.  What a pity that Daniel Radcliffe looks like he’s going to feature highly in the worst movies of my year.  Pointless and boring.

I thought I must have missed some of the plot lines – did I momentarily fall asleep or were they so vague and contrived the story just seemed a mess?  And I was confused – I thought Superman and Batman were both the good guys.  I did enjoy the brooding intensity of Ben Affleck’s Batman, compared to the rather stilted  performance by Henry Cavill as Superman but this bloated film had me checking my watch at regular intervals and I did consider walking out at one point, I was bored!  More positively the last 30 minutes were lively and enjoyable and it was refreshing to see the lovely Holly Hunter not botox’d up to the eyeballs, but overall poor script and way too long!
