About this movie

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition" includes approximately 30 minutes of extended footage never before seen in theaters! From director Zack Snyder comes “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” starring Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters’ first big-screen pairing. Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

The Ultimate Edition is, in my view, a far superior version of an ambitious, beautiful yet flawed and unnecessarily burdened film. While I managed to enjoy the theatrical release, this longer version felt shorter by virtue of filling in a number of logic holes and removing some leaps of faith that the theatrical release required of a viewer. I do understand the need for 'universe building' but a number of dream sequences (all of them) could have been removed to improve flow and reduce the demands on the viewers time and attention. The Justice League cameos via closed circuit TV weren't necessary, seeing the logos on the stolen hard drive should have been sufficient when combined with Wonder Woman's appearance and the Flash's time travel warning to Bruce Wayne. Saving those minutes and replacing some or all of them with an extended confrontation between Superman and Batman after the Batmobile crash, where there is at least an attempt to resolve their differences without violence would have lent a great deal of credibility to the heroism of the titular characters. Overall, the added scenes in the Ultimate Edition are worth every moment and create a more complete story. 3.5/5.

I am a big fan of batman and superman, though not overtly. Apparently this extended version has more information to help you understand the people and the world. 3 times I have watched it. Each time is better. It will stand the test of time. It feels very human. When looking at the negative views, it is a shame that most are in a foreign language so I cannot understand their viewpoint. I loved it.

Cumple con el fandom. El guión tiene quiebres argumentales, pero logra sobresalir. 5stars porque es una tarea bastante difícil llevar a la perfección a los héroes más grandes de los comics, y sus tantas historias. * El actor de Lex Luthor, encajaría mejor en un joker. *Batman como su en los comics: Él conoce todo de todos, así q no termina de quajar cómo es q no conoce el nombre de la madre de Clark.* La batalla final es épica, aunque doomsday le falto un poquito de cariño en su diseño.
