I REALLY don't get why most people didn't like it. In my opinion it really worked quite neatly
A two and a half hours boring, depressing mess. In short, Zack Snyder.
And the dream sequences take more screen time then the actual BvS fight. Who thought this was a good idea?
Loved Eisenberg's scenes in the trailer. Think he's gonna do a great job as Lex Luthor!
Epicness defined. The movie is everything a comics fan would want. Yes, it is the first comic book movie that was actually made for the fans of the comics. Eisenberg's take on Luthor is spot on, Affleck as Batman is plainly brutal, and awesome. Gadot's little development was enough for us to see the Amazonian Warrior in it's full glory. Cavill delivered an amazing performance as a real conflicted Superman.
One of the best superhero movies of all time! Zack Snyder brought the comic book experience to the big screen! A+
Let's make one thing clear, the phrase "it's a movie for fans", is not an argument, let's go to the point.Director Zack Snyder confirms here that he is a bad director, he doesn't know how to tell stories, he is so desperate to introduce the Justice League that the movie ended up being totally overstuffed and nonsense at some point. The montage of the movie is just HORRIBLE, like... one scene there's some tense moment and then suddenly, the screen turns to black and cut to a stupid scene of Lois Lane investigating something or Diana Prince checking her e-mail. Bruce Wayne's nightmare sequences are just empty, stupid and pointless.The dark tone of the film is not necessarily bad, is not meant to be a joyfull film.I still don't understand WHAT THE F*** is Laurence Fishburne doing in this movie, basically the same thing in "Man of Steel", nothing.The movie it's so rushed for a 2 hours and 40 minutes that the epic battle between the 2 greatest heroes ends up being nothing but disappointing, and almost laughable at the end. Transposing scenes from the comics to the big screen is cool, but where's the context on them ? it's a buy fan ticket.
Doomsday........... Horrible, terrible, a visual rape, an insult to the cinema.Lex Luthor................ no words worth it.Wonder Woman: 5 minutes in the film and 5 as Diana Prince. But Gadot does a good jobSuperman, it's actually better than in the previous film.Batman is the best thing from this film, a bloodthirsty dark knight who can finally move his neck. It's the batman i've always wanted to see in the movies. Nice work Ben Affleck.The other good thing from this film is Hans Zimmer's glorious score... Hans Zimmer is the god from this movie.
Conclusion: Could be the best superhero movie of all time, but ends up being worst as many of.
Too long, often boring, dark atmosphere and more like an psycho-drama-thriller than adventure-action-sci-fi movie. I expected more and was a little bit disappointed from this movie. I was really sure to give it 10 points score but I can't give it more than 7 and that's only for the final battle and Wonder Woman, otherwise it would be 6. There are two B v S scenes and that's really not much for the movie called Batman v Superman.
And the end with 10 mins funeral...well...another cliché we saw too many times. We know he cannot die because of another movies and series and yet we have to watch 10 minutes funeral...why?And what about Lex and Crypton ship? The most-advanced tech inside the ship and you can access the system with the Zod skin on your fingers? No other bio-metrics check? With all that technology? WTF?
I believe we fans deserve more than this.
Moments before seeing BvS I read about DC fans stating that BvS "is the greatest superhero movie ever". Myself, I am more of a MARVEL kind of guy and I was quite surprise that I agree with that statement.
Batman v Superman The Ultimate Edition is far superior to the theatrical release. Take a bathroom break. Line up your snacks. Settle in for a three-hour film experience that is a worthy successor to "Man of Steel."
The movie feels like a forced publicity stunt for the Justice League movie, OMG, it's all so forced!!! And the Batman visions??? WTF WAS THAT?!?!?!?
In my own personal opinion, and I know a lot of people disagree on this one, and I don't know why but I'm gonna say it, I LOVED the movie, it had everything I wanted to see, it had the batman I always wanted to see, Superman's amazing as always, wonder woman stole most of the show, overall, the movie deserves more reviews, it was DC heaven.
I'm not going to take the film's title into account here, but now it seems fitting. This movie started and I kept thinking that, while certainly not without flaws, people are being overly harsh. Overall I liked the first two acts decently enough. One scene in particular was really strong and interesting around the halfway point.
But then the final act showed up and all the smaller issues I had suddenly grew larger and more severe. They felt just like the boss battle because as I judged the problems, it took in that problem to become a bigger, stronger problem. I wish I had had kryptonite to kill the growth.
Oh well. Superman is still portrayed really well, Wonder Woman looks pretty interesting for a future film, and I like the new Alfred. I did not care for Lex Luthor much at all. I don't always want to see another crazy villain. I liked him before because he is normally written as a super smart jerk who has reasons.
And then there's Batman. He never does anything that I outright despise I suppose, but at the same time he never really does anything interesting either. In case you didn't know how this went down, we do get yet another monotonous recall to his parent's death.
Oh, geeze, I just gave away a huge spoiler there didn't I. Now Batman is going to show up and shoot me to death with a gun, since apparently this Batman is cool with that.
Thank you for making porn for all of my senses, and for taking me on an emotional rollercoaster.And for making me fall in love with Gal Gadot.And for awakening the part of me I thought I had lost.All in all, critics are too simple minded to understand the epic scale of this movie and all hidden elements in it.Cinematography, acting, music, effects, plot, and easter eggs are incredibly well done and I will see it at least 2 more times in cinema.
For those concerned with critics' opinions - don't be. Just go to the theatre, forget about everything and let the movie consume you completely.
Thoughts after leaving the cinema but before reading critics reviews: The plot actually very coherent, I had no problems following it whatsoever. Things happened for specific reason, they were deliberate choices that moved the plot along as opposed to randomly contrived events. Not only that, the narratives that were occurring concurrently made for a comprehensive movie that was multi-faceted and set up the future movies well. Complaints on my end were negligible, really not worth mentioning.
Thoughts after reading some critics complaints: I'm sorry that you don't have the brain capacity to sit down for 2.5 hours and pay attention to a movie with multiple narratives to tell a story. I'm sorry that you don't like films that deviate from common Hollywood narrative structures. I'm sorry that you keep comparing it to summer-blockbustery Marvel movies that are meant to reel in everyone and their dog and have become so formulaic and vanilla that my 9 year-old brother is getting sick of them. I'm sorry that you're not comparing it to Watchmen. I'm sorry that you wanted to hate this movie from the beginning.
My reconciled thoughts: All of this aside, I thought it was a comic book movie through and through. It's a real service to the fans who pay for comics and keeps the industry alive (also see Amy Robinson's review on BvS). Despite some deviating creative choices, for me, the essence of the characters stay true and pure to the heart of who they are and what they represent. Henry Cavill's Clark Kent/Superman rings to what a modern day iteration of him would be, not whatever New 52 has done with him. They really captured the depth and breadth of 75 years of Lois/Clark's love in the movie. Even the tension between Bruce and Diana is right on the money and calls back to the awesomeness of the pairing that is Batman/Wonder Woman that we all got a taste of in JLU and Blackest Night. Batffleck's Batman/Bruce is the Bruce after Jason's death, before Tim came along, y'know? The movie leaves a whole lot of room for the future Justice Leaguers and maybe even beyond to legacy movies where mantle is passed on.
Also, if we got like 5 minutes of Jason Momoa's Aquaman instead of 10 seconds I would have died and gone to heaven right there on the spot.
This movie is going to be remembered for a really long time in history.
Ok, so first thing. If you didn't like Man of Steel you WILL NOT like this movie. This movie will also attract a lot of hate, but if you are a person that likes movies they like without listening to others, read on for my impressions.
I enjoyed it for the most part and went in completely blind (avoided all trailers/reviews/articles), there were a lot of great scenes and visuals but also a lot of terrible/boring scenes and visuals in a less but still substantial volume. Now some of the really great shots may have been spammed in the trailers so won't have the "wow" factor for people that watched all the trailers 50 times, but for me they were great.
A bit of overuse of CGI at points and some was bad, while other scenes had great effects. Some of the characters were fantastic like Ben's Batman, Jesse's Lex and Laurence's Perry White, while others should really move along... Lois looking at you.
I did find myself getting a bit excited for some of the fight scenes and "Justice League" setup. I will mention the lack of real "flow" for the first two acts of the films and I honestly think (hope at least) that if they release a "directors cut" it would solve the broken flow of the first two acts.
It may get called "Bad", but it's no where close to being Fantasic Four bad.
Batfleck will kill this! Looks like we're getting a real "comic" Batman!
"Your Mom's Martha? Dude! MY Mom's Martha too! We should be friends now!"
Are you fucking kidding me?
Just one word that I can describe this movie, amazing.I've already watched it twice and I'm going' to watch it over and over again.
To help understand the fundamental problem of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' (and, really, almost any Zack Snyder film) check out Nerdwriter's YouTube video entitled MOMENTS v SCENES: https://youtu.be/38Cy_Qlh7VM
Hard to enjoy with all these plotholes, either known or newly introduced. Here's a list:1) Glasses are a perfect disguise2) A hoarse voice is a good disguise, too.3) Who's that muscular journalist?4) Remember that dangerous alien ship? Yeah, let's just leave it there for everybody to enter.5) Two guys above law complaining that each other is acting above law.6) Where was that green stone coming from, again?7) Was Jesse Eisenberg sure he is not on set for Zombieland or the Social Network?8) "I can hear my girlfriend fart from 3000 km away, cool ey? Yo, where's my mom?"9) Let's not shoot his ma until this bat dude is here.10) US military stressing morals & ethics (after using drones). Seriously? oÔ11) Martha apparently is the new "Adrian".12) Aquaman. Full stop. Jason Momoa. Full stop.13) Speaking of cast: Props to Henry "Muscle suit" Cavill. Boo to Jeremy "You're just not Michael Caine" Irons and Ben "always sobbing because my parents are still dead" AffleckAnd that list goes on. What a waste of time...
I gave myself time to wait a little bit to watch this movie two weeks after the premiere. It was in an excellent 300 seats movie theatre with only 3 people at 8:00 P.M. The movie, as a visual spectacle, works as such: excellent photography, good acting, very nice VFX's, and excellent music. The problem, is the narrative. For a movie, it's a bloody mess, that actually would work GREAT on a miniseries, with enough time to expand the plots and flesh out the characters. I didn't have problems to follow the story because I'm used to read books with hugely disjointed or dreamy plots. But this is a visual experience, and that sets a whole different level of expectations for the CASUAL viewer. DC Comics buffs won't have problems to find the virtues of this movie (and I must confess myself a fan of Batman) but I have to point out that the couple that was in the theatre with me, left the movie about 1 hour into the show, so I ended up watching the rest alone. I'm buying this Blu-ray (hopefully a director's cut) for my collection, but to be honest, BVSDJ needs one hour more of exposition and plot to really tell the story right. This movie will lose money, that's for sure. I just hope that fact doesn't mess with the rest of WB's plans, because I'm really looking forward for Suicide Squad and Aquaman (albeit not James Cameron's, sadly). As a bottom line: I'm sure there's a good BVSDJ movie in there, that was probably left on the cutting floor, and damn, I would loved that one!.
So, I’ve had my doubts about this since the infamous Doomsday trailer, but I wasn’t focusing on them, because I wanted to give the movie the benefit of the doubt. I’ve watched some spoiler free reviews that voiced by exact concerns, but mostly people were not passionately hating on the movie but saying that it was okay, passable. So I went into it with significantly lowered expectations but with naive hopes to be pleasantly surprised. And damn, was this movie bad. Like I’ve never actually seen more scattered, boring, messy and undeserving of its title or the hype around it superhero movie in my life. To be fair, I’ve never seen that horrible Fantastic 4 reboot, but pretty sure I’d put them close.
The party conversation we’ve all seen in the trailer is literally the only fucking conversation between Batman and Superman prior them butting heads. And it completely lacks the expected tension because, wait for it, they don’t even know each other's secret identities like the trailer made us idiots to believe. They are just dudes at a party.
The desert nightmare sequence holds no real relevance to the plot. It’s obviously just a blatant excuse for batman to kick some ass. Although I've enjoyed the fighting style and the visuality (and physicality) of it, very reminiscent of the Batman Arkham City I’m currently playing. The following Flash cameo was kinda awkward? And so was the Flash himself. (Though not even half as awkward as seeing Aquaman clearly holding his breath underwater.)
The placement of so many Justice League’ members as side characters or in small cameos is butchering and disrespecting them from the get go. Do we care for them with no build up? Is it right to see them in passing before their respectable movies? No fucking way.
Speaking of caring. Do we actually care for the Batman and Superman themselves and the feud between them? Is anyone seriously satisfied by them fighting because of Luthor’s jokeresque plan instead of their moral differences? Also isn’t Lex supposed to be a sane clever businessman and not a hysterical screechy chaotic clown that has zero believable reasoning behind him hating Superman - a person he had no history or opposing goals with whatsoever - so hard he orchestrates an explosion and create an indestructible monster from his blood (???) in order to defeat him; and everyone fucking acts like his psychotic behaviour is to be expected.
Even the Bats vs Sups fight that was supposed to be the core of this movie isn’t that good. They pummel each other (mostly Batman pummels Superman, let’s be fair), but, like I said, why should we fucking care? They are no one to each other, and frankly they are no one to us. These versions of Superman and Batman haven’t earned the audience rooting for them. I love the idea of those two larger than life characters fighting each other, but damn I hate the execution.
Superman is a fucking emotionless robot; Batman is a ragged killing machine. One of those concepts kinda works.
Why would Superman call his mother Martha… Come oooon...
And that’s what stopped Batman? Lots of people have that name. If Luthor's mom was named Martha, would they all the heroes shake hands with him?
“Why would you say that name??!!” barks Batman for the millionth time. What an asshat. The first time Lois’ interference was welcome.
People say the movie is dark - some pose it as a flow, others are convinced it’s a good thing and mostly bring up Marvel into their argument, like there’s no shades of darkness or any tone for that matter, like there are just those two extremities, and obviously those who claim this movie is too dark wanted a pop-corn flick (not saying all Marvel movies are all that, not at all). In my opinion this film is not necessary dark, but it is certainly lifeless.
The soundtrack is more off-putting than Lex’s hair. I cheered when Superman died.
I honestly never expected this to be as easy to follow, but all over the place and insufferably boring as it was. Anyone who isn’t absolutely stupid could have written the script for this, the plot is so shallow and the dialogues bad. The movie isn’t intelligent not it is creative. And neither it’s passionate. Definitely wasn’t written by a fan of comic books or at least of their heroes. This movie is just a dumb money maker. And because of that and the false hype it created it should absolutely fail. It won’t though, because people are dumb.
Like it for what it is. This isn't some happy go lucky shiny Marvel film with RDJ quipping his way through and appeasing the masses. This is classic DC darkness. It shows the side of both our heroes that needed to be aired. We finally saw the weight that Superman has to carry on his shoulders. Despite my initial reservations, Affleck did a fantastic job in this role and Gadot's Wonder Woman was also a pleasure to watch. She wasn't the wispy sex symbol I feared but instead a true force to be reckoned with including a hint of layers yet to be revealed. Cannot wait for the directors cut.
The thing about the movie is that it assumes audiences are familiar with the characters so it doesn't bother giving you much in terms of their backstories. This would be a legitimate comparison to the MCU--Marvel built up their audience's connection with individual characters in solo movies. The DCEU skips that and though I think it's possible that you can start with a group movie then branch into backstories and still be able to make the audience connect with a character, BvS needed to work on that a bit more. The movie tries to intrigue you about the characters so that you'll want to watch the other DCEU movies to find out about them.
But that being said, BvS felt like a love letter from DC to their fans. It felt like DC was saying, "Here's what you've been waiting for, you deserve this! I'm giving you all the treats!" I'm not sure why people keep saying that the first part was difficult to follow (I had no problems keeping track of what was happening). The pacing IS fast but if you pay attention (which, why wouldn't you pay attention to a movie you paid for) then you should have no problems.
I had an easier time connecting emotionally to Superman here than I did in MoS. You could really feel how 20 years fighting crime in Gotham jaded Batman and chipped away what little optimism he had left for fighting crime. And the cameos of the rest of the Justice League! The cameos were everything!!
The movie's not perfect but it's definitely an improvement over MoS.
Fisrt half is confusing, second half is wonderful
Not as bad as everyone was leading us to think. The first half is a bit confusing — too much happening in sequence without truly being sequencial, specially because it includes dreams — but still scream-worthy comic tribute. The second half is the best, goes by super fast and gets you wondering where are the other 3 hours of movie that you need. (I guess, for a franchise, it's the best feeling they can hope for). Ben Affleck is a great Bruce Wayne but Gal Gadot is the real deal, Diana couldn't be better on screen.
We want Bale back!!! He is the real Batman
Excellent movie.Ben Affleck,Gal Gadot,Henry Cavill is amazing and Jesse Eisenberg great.
Just watch the ultimate edition it is way better than the original version.
This movie is such a mess. It's not even worth your time. You would be better off reading the wiki notes for this one. Wonder Woman is the best part of this and the only reason it gets an extra star from me. The actual "Batman Vs. Superman" fight is a joke. It seemed to me more of a film about a pissing contest. I'm so disappointed with this.
I lost 15 years of my life watching this movie.
A disappointing mess from the opening credits
What a meandering mess of a movie! (And yes, I've watched the extended edition in it's full 3 hour glory, the one that is supposed to fix things from the theatrical cut).
I saw the extended version.
I kept hearing many people didn't like it, but, I thought it was really good. Not perfect, but, still very good.
Pretty predictable though; I think everyone could've guessed the minute they heard the names of the 2 combatants that of course kryptonite was going to be used (lame), but, for being titled "Batman v Superman", a VERY small percentage of the over 3 hour long film was actually dedicated to them fighting. They had a quick and dirty fight, then predictably teamed up to fight someone else .....
And since when did Wonder Woman have an accent?
This movie is about humanity confronting their own inferiority in the universe. Coming to terms with an idea: "we're not alone in the universe and we're not the most powerful beings either." That's that feeling of powerlessness that turn good men cruel. Not just about a bad guy that does something bad and the heroes have to stop him. It's about heroes question their own heroism, of power been defied, of purpose being defined. This movie represent much more than what it straightforwardly shows. And that's why I loved it.
Like Zach Snyder's crusty underpants, this is a joyless grey mess.
This will be an Epic movie. Cant wait till friday.
I really Loved Eisenberg's scenes in the trailer. He LIVE his play, I can see it on this trailer. The "good" next generation of Lex Luthor, GREAT!
Batman v Superman: el amanecer de la justicia
I thought it was pretty good. Don't understand all the hate. It was too long, and Eisenberg was miscast, but other than that I enjoyed it. Waaaay better than Suicide Squad.
This film is awesome. The Best Of 2016.
As a fan of DC Universe I have only one thing to say - thnnk you Zack Snyder for the awesome superhero movie.
What happened mannnn...and Man of Steel was so good.... And then ppphhhffrrrrttt...it started out great and then slowly fizzled... I may give it another shot or maybe not...the Dark Knight may have ruined me on Batman movies
We as a society need to stop giving Jesse Eisenberg chances.
Man of Steel wasn't a bad movie, it just ended up being mediocre. Bvs DoJ was a bad movie. Whoever wrote the script and story should be fired. I get the dark and gritty Batman, but he was downright emotionally unstable. No one could get through to him, even Alfred, with all the reasonable and obvious arguments, but saying his mother's name helped him immediately reconcile all his differences? Am I also to believe that, for 12 years, Superman never made any real attempt to talk to the public? He was in such an emo mood he couldn't figure out maybe he should actually try and tell people his side, his thoughts, or something else? Eisenberg didn't do a bad job, but he didn't really work as Luthor. they basically turned him into a Joker-esque figure, and it didn't fit the feel. They needed a General Zod-Presque villain for the tone of the film. The movie definitely made some attempt at saying something important... but what that is isn't clear.
considering there are many comments and critics about this movie, I think this is a great movie some people boldly compared to civil war which is unfair considering dc cinematic universe is still in infancy compared to marvel, it certainly has a different tone unlike marvel's which more dark and less humor with no post ending credit gimmick, I personally have a great expectation for the sequel
The best scene throughout the movie when Doomsday arrived. Batman V Superman fight sucks! If you like to see a better fight between two icons see - Freddy V Jason or Alien V Predator.
As a Fan of Batman AND Superman i loved the movie! I would also love seeing those 2 sitting next to each other and eat some french fries. The Storytelling was a mess, but the Sound and pictures were just AMAZING! 8/10
This was an awesome awesome movie..a cinematic EVENT
Without any spoilers it really followed a lot of the comic lore, and I like how they pulled it together. Ben Affleck is no Christian Bale but luckily the movie doesn't revolve around him, and Henny Cavill is still a good superman, and their combination worked, but the biggest and most interesting surprise was Wonder Woman, who turned out to be a bad ass which I am looking forward to seeing. Forget the critics and watch it for yourself.
I know that any enthusiast of the genre has to watch this movie (like the Green Lantern...shudder...) but I thought this was awful. Maybe the plot setup for the Superman / Batman fight occurred during one of the moments I feel asleep, but I still don't understand why that happened - or how it suddenly stopped happening (that was just so unfeasible).
I quite liked the whacky Lex Luther (even if it wasn't true to the source, and some audience members confused with the Joker). I didn't get Wonder Woman (check out the last fight scence to see which hero gets the biggest beating). The Batman was the dark, broody version, and reminded me of the 1989 version). Superman also tried to be dark - but just seemed to be really frowny all the way through
But the fight scenes just escalated to what I thought was ludicrous levels (does so much bright explosion make the special affects cheaper because the viewers can't see detail).
I went in with low expectations - and feel like there were justified.
Today I could finally see one of the most anticipated moments in the world of superheroes: the "Trinity" from DC Comics, Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman, together at last in a film that opens in style "Universe Extended DC "in theaters.
First, we note the obvious virtues of the film. The first, the music has an incredible soundtrack, made by Hans Zimmer (who reprises of steel -Man Man of Steel-) and Junkie XL. An epic music when required, which helps a lot to do most spectacular scenes. Then we have visual effects, another point very well done. The fight scenes of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, but I do not see them as "the best film" as put at first, are amazing.
Second, we must mention another of the strengths of the film: the actors. Ben Affleck as Batman I like. Do not know if it would be the best Batman, but I would definitely stay good paper. Besides, I do not dislike much that his "Batman" will be one more violent and cruel compared to comics, though certainly divide the fans for long. Jeremy Irons as Alfred charm me with his sarcasm and willingness to help "Batman" in his adventures. It is the closest hotel to comic I've seen. Henry Cavill to repeat as Superman, we could say it was closer to the vision that we could have the comic of the superhero, although it is like my favorite interpretation, that's for Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman, whose appearance, albeit short, left with wanting more for individual film next year. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, although it is true to narcissistic crazy enemy of Superman, I feel that exaggerated the part of "crazy". In any case, the performances were generally magnified.
Now, the weak point of the film: the script. Do not be fooled, it is generally good, entertaining and understood, and I think that criticism tildarla exaggerating a bit of "bad". Will not go into details to avoid falling into spoilers, but if I tell you: make no mistake, it has its flaws and can not be denied. A couple of scenes that leave some of the main plot, a few moments that I miss them more explanation or a battle that was somewhat forced. It is ridiculous to say that ruins the movie, as there Marvel movies that equal or worst mistakes committed. It's magnificent history, and enjoys entertaining, only could be done better, but leaves a great prelude to what will be "Justice League" in the coming years.
Therefore, it is a great movie, I recommend seeing as this, DC comics and rich universe of superheroes finally have a worthy Cinematic Universe that will make war on Marvel. That if, forget the tone of the "House of Ideas" with his films. This is not another of Iron Man with Captain America paid by Disney. It is another study, another tone. In any case, I recommend watching this movie. For my part, I give it a 7/10.
I will point out the best things according to me without spoiling and ruining the excitement . As a demanding person by nature as I am, I will present my point of view. Being aware of the recent unexpected and unjustified hatred towards the whole project, I decided to point out 5 best things about the movie and why you shouldn’t hesitate to check it out.
The movie was fair. I was not blown away but also not heavily disappointed. Affleck did a decent job as Batman but Christian Bale is still the best one followed by Michael Keaton.
Why is this supposed to be named Batman v Superman ? I don't get it.
FANTASTIC MOVIEDIANA PRINCE BEST THING EVERMCU WHO
This film really has divided opinions of just about everyone who's watched it. My opinion, for what it's worth, is that this film is nowhere near as bad as the negative reviews will have you believe. Is it a great film, probably not but it's certainly a good film and there is a lot that works. Ben Affleck as Batman is phenomenal, definitely the best Batman to date IMO. Gal Gadot is excellent as Wonder Woman, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing her in her own movie. Henry Cavill holds his own as Superman but doesn't quite stand out like the other two. Jesse Eisenberg gives us an interesting twist on the Lex Luther and again IMO does a good job.
One bad point for me is that certain parts of the story seem to just happen without being explained or even giving us a clue as to why they are happening. Maybe I need to watch it again to be clearer on that bit.
I think an amazing part of the film is the fighting scenes...wow! Batman has never looked so animated and...well...bad ass!!! Wonder Woman kicks some propa ass and I think Gal Gadot portrays her brilliantly. There's a bit where she gets smacked down and she looks up, smiles, and jumps straight back into the fight...I loved that bit.
To end this off, I've heard an interesting rumour about where this story will be heading next and if this rumour comes to pass, the DC movie universe will be kinda awesome...time will tell.
Don't let the negative reviews dissuade you, check this film out.
I agree that the main story seems a bit far-fetched and contextless.But as far as acting goes this movie was great (especially Ben Affleck as Batman). Also the visuals were extremely good and there were a few elements that could get really interesting in future movies. I'm especially referring to the dream sequences with Flash and Robin's suit.
The fighting scenes were done really nicely and the setting war reasonably dark. Also there's the fact that I'm a big Batman fan thus I enjoyed this movie move than others would. And I like how this Batman is more like the one of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight comics.
Please watch the movie yourself because giving opinions. Personally I really enjoyed the movie. Sure, there were moments that you wished they could've done better but overall it is worth a watch.
I thought it was fantastic. Only negatives are I thought that Wonder Woman would have had a bigger part, and there was no explanation about what Doomsday was. No build up. And then he was destroyed too easily.
Also, Batman turned good too easily. Like Anakin does when he became Vader. I agree with it all. I think I just would have preferred more Doomsday/Wonder Woman development, and less Batman origin story because everyone knows it! Like Spiderman's.
I'm going back tomorrow as well!
I think Captain America is gonna be bigger
The beginning was boring. The story didn't really flow so well (I would love to see the 3 hr version). The action scenes were fun(mostly CGI). I feel this movie should have been split into two different movies but they rushed it for justice League.
Ben was a really good batman (I'm personally not a fan of bale...I like keaton). Lex Luther was very weird in this movie and I just couldn't connect with the character.
One thing I would like to see in the future is a physical villain for the DC superheroes to fight, so that the fighting scenes are not just CGI.
Best Comic book Movie Ever!
First of all: I didn't expect much after Man of Steel!Second: English is not my native language so please forgive my bad grammar and possible missuse of words or phrases...
That being said, i think it is a bit weird storywise. There were many hard cuts between the scenes (concerning the story) and it was not clear why things happened when it was shown.In the end i couldn't shake the feeling, that the makers made it up as they went along - just so they could use all the special effects that they already paid for.Besides that part they seem to be really determined to build a cinematic universe very fast - perhaps a bit too fast.Why am i thinking this? Because they more or less put 4 origin stories into one film.1st Batman's Origin2nd Wonderwomans Origin3rd The League of Justice4th Lex Luthor's OriginIf you thought about it and did a bit of research about DC Comics before watching like i did you could expect this - For someone who doesn't have a clue about the original DC Comics (like most people in germany) i think it was not.
So if i think about the time they had for the movie and what they had to tell in it i think they did a solid job. But to be fair: I think without wonderwoman and a less dangerous monster it could have been a better film - they would just have had more time to build a real story - not just fragments of it which the viewer has to piece together himself.
That should be it for the story without spoilering it^^
To the Special Effects:They seemed to be pretty expensive and they are a lot of fun to watch as long as you don't look too careful. For Example: The Objects they used to calculate the breaking of glass seemed to be big quarders instead of small pieces (Superman crashing into a skyscraper must have been at least four times the size than he was in the picture to create a glass breaking as it was shown).In another scene you can't see the skyscrapersthe camera is pointing up and it is in the middle of (Metropolis or Gotham - i am not sure...).
My resume:If you are a DC-, Batman-, or Superman-Fan you have to see it. For everyone else: It is a good Action movie with modern Effects, but don't expect it to be the best film you have ever seen.
This movie was way more Lex Luthor vs. Superman than the title. It is a nice twist to it.
The red capes are coming!
"Do you know the oldest lie in America, senator? Devils don't come from hell beneath us. They come from the sky!"
Good to see two of the superhero character that everyone admires of fighting eachother futility. Martha scene was a trash even tho execution was kinda good. Movie depicts a lot of emotions together like altogether that literally confuses sometimes even make the audience bored but indeed gotta say the fight scene was impeccable!. And climax I sorta felt like director had no idea of ending this movie and he just messed up!.
Good but high propensity to feel the lag but c'mon it's Snyder's movie !!!!.
Epic. One of the best superhero movies.
Well I think this isn't a good movie even though it has a couple of good moments (including Jesse Eisenbergs performance as Lex Luthor) . However, it is not bad as its reputation. I cannot see why this movie is rated so bad while all those Avengers movies are stated to be good.
The beginning was way to long and the ending unsatisfying. However, the action sequences make up for a lot!Nowhere near Nolan's Trilogy but watching the movie wasn't a waste of time, either. On the other hand I'm probably not going to watch it again...
The best thing about this movie was the 7 minutes of Wonder Woman. Like MAN OF STEEL the storytelling was choppy and unfocused - lots of hints of what was to come but no compelling story. The premise of Batman versus Superman is just idiotic, the fight scenes gratuitous, and the bleak tone of the whole movie just alienated the viewer. I can only give it a 6 (fair) out of 10. Thank heavens for WONDER WOMAN - if they learned some story telling lessons from her movie then there is hope for JUSTICE LEAGUE. If they just shove a whole bunch of elements in the pot without a cohesive narrative, some human exchange and some character lightness, then I think the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) is in deep trouble. [Superhero, Action, Adventure]
Now since that is out of the way, I kinda liked this more than I remembered. I think I'm going to bump it up from a 6 to 7. I saw the original cut in theaters and I saw the Ultimate edition as soon as it came out and it didn't really change my opinion on the movie. Now that I've had a year to forget about it and I'm getting ready for Justice League I'm starting to think this movie is alright. Now I'm not saying it is great but it can be entertaining. There are so many small things that are wrong with the movie that keep it back from being one of the better superhero movies. Lex Luther still sucks. I really wish they would of cast Bryan Cranston and gone a different direction with Lex. It was so lazy to introduce all the other heros with 30 second clips. Snyder couldn't think of any way better. Come on I mean the subtitle is called "Dawn of Justice". Wonder Woman is great but I forgot how small a role she has in this movie. Luckily she has her own movie to shine. Also Batman's line "I thought she was with you" has got to be one of the stupidest lines. HE LITERALLY EMAILED HER LIKE 2 HOURS AGO.
Good and entertaining movie like Marvel
This movie doesn't really make me like Batman all that much. But man am I ready to watch Wonder Woman tomorrow.
Most people that love all things super will not be sad to see this one go dusty one the shelf. Bad, acting, writing, and plot. what's left you ask? Just another badly thought of mash up that left most people dum founded. How could you mess this one up so badly.
I almost expected some corny 80's music as Bruce works out hard to get ready to fight Superman. Besides isn't training hard to face Superman just stupid ?
I don't know what I just watched
nice movie but little bit disappointed it was to long and the sence were to long and Milked out(dutch expression).
This is hard... For the first time in my life I didn't like a superheroes movie. Thanks God I didn't go to the cinema to watch it. A lot of time just to watch a few minutes of real fighting, what of course weren't enought. Batman's argument was really bad. Good actors but really bad writing. YOU CAN'T KILL SUPERMAN, YOU ASS HOLES. The only good thing in the movie are the actors (Henry and Gal were a pleasure for the eyes).
A lot of disrespectfully for a movie.
See you in hell.
I was surprised how dark this movie was. I mean, I liked it, a lot, but it was pretty dark.
what did I just watch? at least the extended version has some story in it, although not very coherent. Eisenberg must be the worst Lex ever. He looks like Joker and makes Lex a ridicule.
maybe a two parts shold be better... i don't like the movie
I saw this movie on April 2016 and at that moment, as many others, thought that was an incomplete film with a lot of action but little explanation and little sense for a lot of things. Today I've seen the extended version of it and it is the complet version of the film that should have been displayed on cinemas! I won't say that having all the lost pieces of that puzzle makes now this the best movie ever but at least makes sense, it is more enjoyable and for me, at least, scores an 8.
It was the funniest movie of my life!
The movie was shit, but nice image quality and i liked the stylization (same as in latest NFS game btw). Only kinda good character was the Lex. And he even quoted Lolita, and that is always plus point. So in total MEH 5/10.
Also hoist cable cutter for controls of the flying thingy was nice.
The story is a mess, Warner Bros. and clearly Zack does not know how to make proper flim
Way way way too long. This movie was all over the place with the plot.
The fight scene in the end was rather memorable... By far the best part of the movie.
stupidity, stupidity, stupidity, stupidity, stupidity ^4 grade
At three hours it's a long slog, but adds much more character and story development. The cinematic version was a mess, and had so many plot holes.
I don't like Batman killing people, but I do like the plot line of this interpretation of Batman being jaded (although Batman is kinda always jaded). It gives me hope that the standalone Affleck Batman movie will deal with interesting some themes, and explore plot lines not delt with before in Batman films.
I would encourage people to watch the extended version over the former.
Not bad but 3 hours is too long
This is how to ruin a movie!!!!
This movie was great Ben is the best Batman ever!!!
Wow, after the trailer I wasn´t sure if I should watch this but this was better than the last 5 Marvels (save Deadpool) combined. I was leaning towards giving it a 10 but there is one thing I really hated and that was the stupid monster. Why has it always to be a huge monster to fight ? Yeah, the title is misleading I agree with the comments on the fact there isn´t much of a fight going on between them. But should that be the movie´s biggest flaw I can live with it. Otherwise the dark atmosphere works great and without all those hero worshipping the characters get so much more depth. I hope they can follow that up because this made me want more.
Not only the most stupid Batman ever made, it's probably the dumbest film ever made!
This movie is so dumb. The "fight" between B and S is ridiculous, Lex is so overactet and these Martha- scene is a insult for each fan.
As someone who is not entirely familiar with the DC universe this was a very confusing and packed movie. Sadly the characters made decisions where you think "I'd never be that stupid" which made me throw the entire plot out of the window. Visually, spectacular. The portrayal of the characters was also amazing. Especially loved Lex.
I think it'll be a good film for the fans. For the not-fans, go in expecting a superhero-filled action movie where the story doesn't make much sense.
Pretty decent movie, but not as good as Man of Steel. Too many story to cover in 3 hours, they should've done the first half as a Batman standalone film, then the second half as BvS.
Still gotta sleep but want to warh batnan vs. superman!
Waste of time. Worst Batman actor ever.And the plot is boring as hell.
