I’m not exactly sure what to say or how to describe this film. Don’t get me wrong, it was good. But I felt it would have been much better with it was one story and not two flowing into one. Let me explains!
“Noturnal Animals” is about Susan and Edward getting married very young but split up quit quickly, and 20 years after the breakup Susan get’s a package from Edward, a book he wrote called Nocturnal Animals and dedicated it to her. As she is reading the book we see flashes from the book and what it’s about. That story is much better than sort of seeing Susan reading it. So if they would have just called it Nocturnal Animals and let us see the events from the book and ending it with her reading it. But when Edward sent her the book he also sent with a small letter, asking to meet her while he’s town and she agrees after reading first part of the book.
Maybe it’s just me. The film itself was very good and powerful is any shape and form and would recommend to anyone who would like to see it. Just keep in mind, it can be a bit slow and picks up better when we see the scenes that play out from the book Edward wrote. We see snippets from Susan’s life but nothing too exciting.
Actors: Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Aaron Tylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Ellie Bamber, Armie Hammer and many more.
When it comes to seeing Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne I was skeptical and even after watching this film I was skeptical. I mean, is Ben Affleck really a good choice for Batman? He did good acting but somehow I am still conflicted. What didn’t disappoint me though was Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. He gave a different version of him and he did it spectacular.
While the world is wondering what kind of hero it needs Batman aka Bruce Wayne is wondering if Superman is good or if he is just another criminal. He is trying to find a way to damage Superman, to kill him. While we are seeing Lex Luthor is in the space shit we saw in Man of Steel and basically playing God. We can see how Luthor is slowly losing his mind.
How will Batman take on Superman without getting killed himself? He finds a way and takes on Superman. But Superman only wants Batman’s help to find his mother, who has the same name was Bruce’s mother had. So will Superman be able to convince Batman in battle that the real enemy here actually is Lex Luthor and he needs his help. As Lex took Superman’s mother and also planning something sinister for Metropolis.
We see two cameos in this film: Aquaman & Wonder Woman. As we know those films are coming next year and Wonder Woman is looking quite good, I’d suggest check out the Comic Con one on youtube.
Actors: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Gal Gadot, Scoot McNairy and many more.
