What I appreciate most about Snyder is that he does the wide angle, highly choreographed, "big action" scenes very well without resorting to the plague that is "shaky cam". Half the time, I didn't know what Batman was doing to bad guys in Dark Knight
because the camera was always attached to his elbow. Say what you will about the plots of the films he directs or the character development, but he knows how to take a scene full of carnage and make it a beautiful thing. He's not perfect, but I'm rarely let down by the eye-candy.
Also, can we please stop knocking on teenagers? It's been a long time since I have been one, but while it's true that teens usually seek the most bombastic and over-the-top stimulation, this does not equate with stupidity. Teens go to movies almost more out of boredom, shock value, or for social engagement than they do anything else.
Come now, let us be honest with one another. Every single member of AVS is on the lookout for "demo material", the big, loud, and stunning media to push their systems and wow their friends in whatever price bracket they are in. Sounds not unlike a teenager with a $1,000 stereo in his $800 car, does it not?
