Comedian, actor and director Chris Rock joined the legion of critics unsatisfied with how the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” turned out.
While talking to well-respected director J.J. Abrams on Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival, the 51-year-old former star of “Saturday Night Live” mocked Zack Snyder’s movie, Vulture reported. “Did you see that Superman Batman sh**?” he told the director of the famous “Star Wars” film. “What the fu** was that?”
He further continued by saying, “I can’t say anything, they weren’t going to cast me anyway.” The multi-awarded artist then put into words his thoughts about the fight scene between the caped superheroes. “Superman can’t fight a guy that drives a car!” Chris Rock said. “He gets a flat. Like he’s going to fight Superman.”
“Needs Triple A, but yeah, he can fight Superman,” he added. “He’s got JUMPER CABLES, and he’s going to fight SUPERMAN.”
When asked for a movie viewers must consider if they do not like this movie, the “Madagascar” talent had this to say, “Go see that Disney animated movie. They don’t let you down.”
Meanwhile, he pointed out that Abrams must direct the “Fantastic Four” film, the comic book movie which he likes the most. “Could you direct the ‘Fantastic Four’?” he asked. “I love the ‘Fantastic Four’ and they keep fu**ing it up! Like, god damn it. It’s the ‘Fantastic Four.’”
In the meantime, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” received a 28 percent rating in Rotten Tomatoes because according to the critics, it “smothers a potentially powerful story — and some of America’s most iconic superheroes — in a grim whirlwind of effects-driven action.”
It seemed that Chris Rock described the movie just like how a number of critics did. Carlos Díaz Reyes of Vanguardia (Mexico) pointed out that the Warner Bros/DC Entertainment co-production is “a shameless attempt at trying to catch up to Marvel, wasting an interesting premise and turning it into a generic action film.”
