These reviews are all full of it. Batman vs superman was a much better movie than any avengers live action movie. This seems more of a conspiracy against DC

4/5 for me.

batman v superman was disappointing. alot of pacing . the man who played lex luthor was more like riddler to me. batman fights was good. doomsday was terrible and he was too early to be in the movie. he was boring. i give the movie 5/10. captain america civil war is next. marvel doesn't disappoint

The movie was very mediocre. I found movies like Fantastic 4 (Jessica alba one) and Catwoman more fun than this. Some of the actors like Batman and Lex really missed their mark.

Just saw it.

It pretty much was my expectations going in. Wasn't anything special, Good action.

Looming forward to reading the battle threads for batman and doomsday

Really liked wonder woman

Doomsday was cool

The non action scenes with batman were great

Had a good time watching it. Definitely could have been better.

I couldn't keep up with all the explosions near the end

Is time to say it, The Snyder Experiment should be over.

Snyder is great at visuals, but even his fight scenes and action scenes have the same problem.

STYLE OVER SUBSTANCE.

Snyder should be working with other directors, not being the director of this films.

Also 3 Star from this site, well DAMN!!!

After watching the film last night, I couldn't agree more.

Snyder is great at cinematography and action choreography but he really, really needs to partner up with someone because he does not do things like pacing or narrative coherence well without a firm editor to rein him in and stop him from literally losing the plot. I mean, I didn't hate it because I'm super easy to please movie wise, but it was a seriously flawed movie. Overall above average, should have spent less time trying to set up other movies and more on its own plot...also Henry Cavill needs to take more acting lessons because he had the emotion range of a brick. Keep Snyder on for choreography and cinematography though, just please don't let him try to do character moments.

Affleck was a great Batman tho, absolutely great and fit the role excellently. I'd actually say he was a better Batman in half of one movie than Bale was in three.

Eisenberg needs to get dunked on though. Could not stand the little shit.

If Suicide Squad is good it will get good reviews, then all these "conspiracy" comments will have to stop.

Thought it wasn't as bad as people make it out to be but it still wasn't a good movie at all. Pacing was terrible, character motivations made no sense and the storylines didn't tie in well with each other. The writing done for this movie was just lazy and very messy.

I feel so sorry for Ben Affleck in the Sad Affleck video. He looks so disappointed. He seemed really excited during the production of this film, and its blown up in his face. Its like he's seeing his rejuvenated career get destroyed. Its a shame really as i think he is one of the positives to take away from BvS. Hope he still gets his solo Batman film, so he can really shine.

Batfleck does a solid job, Gal Gadot proved me wrong as a great WW, and Cavill... Well, he does what he can with a poorly written Supes. I don't blame the actors here. Even Eisenberg is just doing what he's told. They should've stuck with Heisenberg rather than Eisenberg and, from everything being written about it now, there's only Zack Snyder to blame. And not just in that instance. There's a lot wrong with this thing.

If the movie was going to fail it was going to be because of Snyder's creative failure. Called it.

So nice being able to say I told you so ;)

This movie was a failure. If you can't see that you are most definitely a delusional fanboy. 3 years and a budget of 250 mil not too mention 150 mil in marketing and this is the best they could do with 2 of the most iconic super heroes of all time? Conspiracy theories? Really? No the movie was bad there is no conspiracy. Hell, look at all the people who were praising this film before it was ever released are now backtracking quickly. But yeah let's blame the critics, blame Rotten Tomatos, blame Disney, blame Marvel, blame Marvel fanboys, blame Stan Lee, blame kids, blame jokes, blame the tone, blame MCU, blame haters, blame the Illuminati, blame Trump, blame ISIS, blame the Kardashians. But let's definitely not blame WB or Snyder and Co for this turd. I was hoping I was going to like this movie especially after I spent $54 on tickets for me and my best friend(who hated this as well). This movie was all over the place. Batman kills people but doesn't kill the Joker or Luthor seems legit. Cavill Superman was wooden and pathetic. WW had no need to be there but let's jam her in there anyway. Not sure why people said she was great she bearly did anything more than what you seen in the trailers and said a few lines. Eisenburg was his usual horrible self. Doomsday looked terrible and out of place. That ending was bad. You can tell when people have to try to slam Marvle movies that they have no argument. This movie wasn't fun and there was little joy or hope to be found. Those are important elements to any film. People equate fun to being funny and not serious but you couldn't be more wrong. The Terminator Judgement Day was a serious and dark film but I still had fun watching it, same goes for Aliens. We get it Zack with the over the top music and it always seem to be dark out or raining, your movies are serious and dark. Nothing like being beat over the head with that through the whole film. The funny thing is look at the Daredevil series and you'll see Marvel pull off a better serious, dark and gritty show with less of a budget. Deadpool was better and had less than quarter of the budget of BvS. Lmfao at people trying to say this movie was to deep for a lot of people to get. Sure it was and Suckerpunch was a cinematic masterpiece. Half the people spouting that nonsense can't even spell properly or form a coherent sentence but accuse others of not being able to figure out a Zack Snyder film? Seems legit.

@smoothjammin: can we cool it with the marvel fan boy crap? I don't think anyone doubted financially that this movie would do bonkers good. Just because someone didn't like the movie and happens to like marvel movies does not mean they just hate DC. I personally didn't care for this movie just due to the fact I felt like the dark tones were shoved down my throat it had nothing to do with marvel movies. If someone's defense of the movie is "suck it marvel fanboys" then that person is not adding anything to the conversation. If you want to defend your opinion based on what you liked them I'm all ears. Otherwise you come off as childish

His post is random and sort of insecure, but basically what he's saying is that it will make a boat load, even with the hate.

But to be honest, the negative reviews only affect European and American markets, It seems that no other country cares about critics.

Disappointed with the movie. Thought the actors all did fine with what they were given. Special praise to Affleck; his Batman was awesome. Huge problem with his Batman, though (not due to Affleck). He killed so many people. I actually sat there thinking, "Wow, Bats just really screwed that guy up. Brutal." It eventually turned into horror and, "Holy shit, he's actually just killing everybody." Zack Snyder needs to go. Please keep him away from JL.

I thought this film was great. It's not perfect, I'll tell you that. There are scenes in just I just wish weren't in there as they were unnecessary (in my point of view) and other scenes that could have been utilized better later on in the film as I felt it disturbed the flow.

But honestly, for a company that is trying to compete with Marvel right off the bat (no pun intended), it was great. Marvel had years to build characters and set the Avengers, with this movie you set up something huge for Justice League within 2 1/2 hours.

Ben Affleck as Batman was great so was Jesse Eisenberg as Luthor. In my opinion it was more like an 8/10.

10/10 and not lower then 8/10 .. how the hell 3/5= 6/10?!?!? I loved it, Finally they made Batman fight like Batman, and Doomsday in the trailer looked like shit but in the movie .. damn they made him good.

Yes the movie jumps around from character to character, but overall it makes sense.

This is a cinematic version, there are tons of stuff for fans. be open minded.
This movie is a mix of "Superman: Doomsday" and "Batman Dark Knight Returns Part II".

The Battle between Bats and Supes was amazing, This version of Lex is different from Comics Lex, but damn is he a psychopath.

This is the Best version of Batman to date.

I just saw BvS in NYC last night. It's truly disappointing. Everyone coming out was disappointed. I don't think this film will have nearly as much as a divide as Man of Steel did.

Batman kills. We saw EVERYTHING in the trailers. The reason they fight, and stop fighting, does not make sense. Bad CGI. Bad dialog.Lex Luthor. Ugh. Talking to the audience without hiding it at all.

Also, where was Dianna when Zod was destroying her planet?

If WB keep Snyder on Justice League after this, I will be very surprised.

Most people don't care about that aspect of Batman in the film. We have had 26 years of that stuff.

Previous Batman films had Batman killing implicitly, as collateral damage that wasn't his fault, or by not saving people when he could. In this movie, Batman straight up shoots guns at people and kills them. I think that's a bit different.

I don't remember Batman killing anyone with guns outside of the nightmare/vision. He uses guns only to either shoot trackers or kryptonite gas canisters in the actual story line.

No. That was the first time I noticed him using a gun, but when he rescues Martha he grabs an assault rifle from an attacker and sprays other goons with it, and kills the guy manning the truck mounted gun with the batwing.

He blew up the car with the batwing and the scene saving Martha he grabs the gun while the guy is still holding it. Far from ruining the Batman character, people are over reacting considering the biggest offense was a dream within a dream

I saw the movie and thought it was very good, not perfect but still very entertaining. Parts could have been cut sure, but to straight bash it as a failure is WAY over the top to me. Affleck was great Gadot was great and for anyone bashing the music they need to have their heads checked because the score was AMAZING. The worst thing about the movie was parts of Snyders use of cinematography (slow motion when unneeded).

Also if you don't think the story made sense or the characters side stories didn't fit then you were paying attention because it all made perfect sense. I don't see how you watched the movie and didn't make sense of the story or how they all came together. Only 1 character came out of nowhere but even that was explained if you pay attention. Theres a difference between not making sense and not being spoonfed.

i really think people are bashing this movie for the sake of bashing it because I could only find maybe a handful of flaws with it and I went into it looking for flaws. I was expecting over the top audio with senseless violence to the public and no real plot...I got none of that...they went out of their way to avoid it actually and explained how! If anything I would cut maybe 10 minutes from it, maybe more if I rewatch it again and thats nit picking. People wanted this to be terrible before the first trailer came out and it shows

I defended MoS when it came out, especially when Superman killed Zod. "He had no choice" I said, "maybe this is what prompts him to not kill again" I said. But dude the savagery of Batman's ruthless killings in this movie I can't defend.

These are not complaints, these are just things that stood out to me:

I was also thrown off by the Flash scene. When he appeared in that helmet I thought for a second it was Red Hood. I'm confused because it seems it was a dream sequence within a dream sequence.

Also I know Superman can survive a nuclear explosion but Jesus I didn't know his outfit could too!

And lastly did anyone else notice that awfully close view of Wonder Woman's baby maker when she was fighting Doomsday?

Just saw it, and the reactions were overblown as expected.

It was pretty much what I expected. They tried to put enough of the 2 mains in the allotted time and had issues, but certainly not to any point that it became too difficult to follow. The dream sequences would probably be the most off-putting to people.

The actors worked well in their roles. For those upset about Eisenberg's Luthor because he wasn't what they expected, that's understandable, just like the joke-cracking Ultron, but certainly not to the extent of actor Mandarin.

It was certainly dark and didn't have too many happy moments, but I don't see that as much of a fault, and the ending does have some uplifting content. Then again, I've never seen the "too dark" thing as much of a valid criticism. I wouldn't say it was that much different from the Nolan films in that regard either. That is one area that would definitely raise suspicion of hypocrisy.

Most of this movie was meh. The Wonder Woman fight was bad ass. I like the idea of merge The Dark Knight Returns with Death and Return of Superman. The most interesting part of the movie was when Batman saw the Parademon future and the Flash rips through the time barrier and tries to warn him about the future. I'd give it a 5/10.
