Buzzing: Batman V Superman versus critics

Batman V Superman versus critics

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has been ripped apart by critics. The movie had sunk to an average rating of 29 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes as of yesterday, joining other critically disparaged superhero films such as the Fantastic Four reboot of 2015 (9 per cent) and Green Lantern from 2011 (26 per cent). It remains to be seen whether fans will be convinced that the clash between DC Comics' mightiest heroes is a spectacle worth skipping. Critics who have panned the film have been met with fury online, with angry fans sneering at their reviews, writing and motives.

She had been slated to perform in the now-racked city yesterday as part of her European tour.
