I recently watched Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice in the cinemas and I absolutely hated it. It is perhaps one of the worst Superhero movies to have ever graced the silver screen. But among all the bad stuff there is something that annoyed me more than anything: the blatant abuse of CGI.
The special effects in that movie were very video game-y, so I just could not take it seriously. Look at Bats’ cape, look at Supes’ cape it looks so fake; though it is a super hero movie it must at least look slightly realistic. And don’t even get me started on Doomsday. Similarly, Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s action sequences looked so much like a video game that it gave me a headache.
The whole point of CGI, at least in my opinion, is to make something outlandish seem very realistic. It is just stupid to make something look like a video game. Video Game graphics are amazing, don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against them in their space, but in the space of Movies, I don’t think it fits; it’s just out of place.
I just wish, in the future, they would understand that too much CGI, and making it like a Video Game is just wrong.
