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.

It is a SLIGHT improvement over the theatrical cut, but is it enough? Nope. It's like sprinkling candy and chocolate on a huge... Uh... Piece of (censored stuff implied to be bad). I really don't understand Warner Brother's vision. THey have access to the most iconic characters of all time and they keep failing to make something good... THe movie is a mess, too many things, but also too many random things, dialogue is laughable, the plot is ridiculous, the characters themselves are NOTHING like their comic-book counterpart. This superman doesn't inspire, this batman is only after vengeance and not justice (and my goodness his killcount is huge) and Wonder Woman reminds me more about Catwoman for some reason. What I'll give to this movie is its visuals - but that's about it. The actual BvS 'confrontation'? A joke. Also, don't be fooled by the R-Rating. The reason it got an R-Rating is because of an F-Bomb and a Butt-Shot. WB really has to rethink their entire DCEU because between BvS and SS... Well, yeah. The future is grim. Also, I guess it's somewhat relevant to mention, I am a HUGE DC Comics fan (the New 52 was a mistake, but REBIRTH is simply outstanding and amazing)

It's been 3 years since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released and i still love this movie to this day. The Ultimate Cut fixes some issues up but I loved the theatrical cut as it was. This movie has amazing visuals by director Zack Snyder and a beautiful sound track by Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL. The film captures the elements from the Dark Knight Returns so accurately, and that's what i love about comic book films, respect to the source material.

This movie is the definition of garbage, Ben Affleck is a horrendous batman and don't even get me started on Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. This movie boring as hell and made you wait 2 and a half hours to see actual batman vs superman then once you got It, it was 5 minutes of overly cgi-ed buff guys breaking things. The only happiness I ge5 from this is reminding me I never have to watch this trash again.
