While never achieving superstar levels of fame, he’s been consistently working in films that ranged from brilliant (Al Pacino’s The Merchant of Venice, for instance) to really (really…) bad, such as the latest Batman vs. Superman mayhem. He actually recently acknowledged that the critics that have been voiced against that film had a point and that the film deserved the scathing reviews, before saying that the next one would be much better?
