Top 5 most underrated movies of 2016

2. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice promised to be the superhero movie of the century, but it appears the film did not go down well with most reviewers, who found it a bit too dark and serious for their tastes. And many did not compare this movie favourably to Captain America: Civil War, the highest-rated superhero film of last year, with many viewers preferring its Battle Royale of superheroes to the Batman vs Superman duel in Zack Snyder’s film.

This doesn’t mean this movie is without merit though, and there’s actually a lot to like about Snyder’s film, even if it’s true that it never does provide clear reasons to explain why the Man of Steel and the Caped Crusader end up coming to blows… But the duel itself sure is riveting though, and like the director’s other hit movies to date this is also a visually stunning production. Plus Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor sure ranks as one of the most charismatic villains to have graced the silver screen in quite some time.
