the best CBM ever

Best comicbook movie ever, plus great picture, soundtrack, have watched over 70+ times and still not boring. Really love that we have this kind of movie in nerd culture. Seems like director and actors really love comic, I can feel the chemistry between them. Wishing we have this kind of CBM in the future

It's a great movie if you watch it open-mindedly and don't know who Zack Snyder is. Edit: There was a word limit so this is review 1

This movie wasn't as safe or simplistic as most of the superhero movies out there. It's really sad to see movies that are mindless and the kind of basic and lowest common denominator are getting a lot of praise, while emotional and challenging movies like BvS isn't getting much despite being more inspirational. This movie triggered something that other Hollywood blockbusters aren't willing or able to reach, but some people don't even want to see this. It just sad. But that's okay, let's talk about some characters. Lex Luthor. Apart from his cringy part, something I really appreciated about this take on Luthor is that they made him seem like a genuine egotistical threatening figure with power over everyone he comes into contact with, he felt like an actual challenge and threat to Superman. This version of him more scary, more frightening and into his more classic state. He really feels like Superman's intellectual superior in every way. But i guess we won't be seeing this version again. Wonder Woman. I love when people say ''WW was flat'' because they have never been this right. Yes, she was flat but what do you want? This wasn't her movie. She should be flat, not the main subject. Superman. I love Snyder's Superman because Superman is an incredibly difficult character to make relatable, and Snyder made that possible for me. His Superman is realistic. He constantly doubts himself and makes mistakes. He's no longer a generic boy scout that can do no wrong. People don't like this Superman because in MoS he saved the world but not the New York, because he's an apocalypse level destruction, because he's not colorful enough. It's controversial but a realistic take on. What do you want? You want a God that acts like 12 years old? Do you want Superman to stop the fight and ask the villain ''Hey bro, i'm sorry but can you terraform Mars, some idiots uncomfortable with destruction on earth.''? And no, he is not dark. There is no indication of that whatsoever. Batman. This Batman has been doing his night job for 20 years. The movie perfectly captured how much this Bruce Wayne is addicted to the batsuit. That one scene where Affleck looking at the suit conveys just how tortured this Bruce Wayne is when he isn't wearing the suit. This Batman beat Superman -so please don't talk about him not being smart, strategic, and brilliant. He knew exactly what he was doing.- This Batman just broken and brutal. The first scene with him was just terrifying. The surroundings, the music, the cinematography screamed terror. Afterwards we see him in the Batcave interacting with Jeremy Irons as Alfred. By his behavior and his words, this version of the character starts out believing that by being Batman, by shutting himself off to the world, hiding in the shadows, that he will be redeemed or brought to the light. But then he realizes that is nothing more than a 'beautiful lie' and a childhood fantasy. Batman was lost in this movie. He's outlived his parents and most of his allies and his mission seems never ending still. He too turns bitter and cold towards his fellow man. Thus explaining his brutality. Especially after witnessing Superman's actions explained to us in Alfred's words: Everything has changed and good men are turning cruel. Batman ''despises'' Superman not because he's above the law, but because he has the power to wipe out the entire human race. ''So what happened to that him having the power to wipe out the entire human race part after the 'Martha' scene'' you say. After that scene, Batman sees Clark Kent, not Superman. And yes, he still has the power to wipe out the entire human race. But Batman doesn't see that part anymore because he had seen Superman's human side. Anyways, let's continue with question/answer. "Why does Luthor introduce Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent to each other?" Luthor already knew who they really are. He didn't introduce Bruce to Clark, Clark approached Bruce and asked a few questions by himself. The biggest 3 characters of the movie were on a convention together and Snyder made that work. "After his supposed death, why does Superman get a military/hero style funeral? Why is the country mourning?" You said in your review ''People of earth's distrust of Superman, due to the events from the first movie'' I guess you didn't watch that first movie properly either. Most of the people see him as a hope, some of them see him as a threat. If you didn't notice, they have a statue of him. Also, Superman saved those people's life by sacrificing himself twice. What do you mean ''why does Superman get a military/hero style funeral?'' Later on in this movie, after the public hearing, we only see the Batman's aggression towards the Superman and the people who think Superman is a threat. So you supposedly think that ALL people see Superman as a threat "Why did Superman stop Batman and didn't care the bad guys?" He doesn't see Batman as a good guy. For him, Batman is just another bad guy who brands people at that moment. "Why is Doomsday angry with Superman? Since he is made from Zod & Luthor's genes, does hatred towards someone pass through genes?" Yes. Also Doomsday got his flying and heat vision abilities from Zod. "Why is Batman not suspicious of the other meta beings?" Because they didn't fall from the sky like Superman. Because they didn't wipe out the whole city in a 1 day "Why didn't Superman track down Martha with his super hearing?" They said there was a scene where Clark tries to hear all of Metropolis and Gotham but it was too much and he couldn't focus. It was deleted scene because it was way too dark baTmaN diDn'T kill suPerMan beCauSe thEiR mOThErs hAvE tHe sAme fIRst nAME, LMAO, thIs mOviE iS TraSH

An under-appreciated superhero film

*I will be talking about the Ultimate Edition of the film* This was one of the most anticipated CBM of all time. Ever since the arrival and subsequent success of Marvel's The Avengers people have wondered when will DC launch its own cinematic universe, one of the main reasons being the opportunity to finally see titans such as Batman and Superman share the screen together: the ultimate nerd dream. On 2016, the moment finally came for BvS to be released AND.. it performed poorly. Not only did critical reception left a lot to be desired, but fan reactions where surprisingly split after its cinematic debut. People either loved it and called Zack a genius, or hated it and called him a hack. Me, personally, I found myself with middle of the road feelings, for sure, but more leaning towards the negative side with subsequent viewings. The theatrical cut of the film showcased amazing performances, incredible visuals, and action set pieces that seemed like comic book panels come to life, in a good way. However, when it comes to its narrative structure and more technical aspects like editing, the film was seriously flawed. More plot holes than Age of Ultron, questionable character decisions, random editing that lacked cohesion and focus, and forced dramatic moments that lacked any impact because the attempts at character development ranged from limited to nonexistent, especially when it comes to Superman's character. I thought it was a 5/10 movie at best. As such, I was kind of skeptical about the idea of a 30 minute longer version. I say kind of because I know how Zack works. I remember Watchmen being vastly improved with its director's cut, so in a way I was expecting BvS to perform in a similar manner, but I also feared those 30 minutes wold be just there to amplify action and discredit storytelling issues. Oh boy, I'm so glad I was proved wrong. The ultimate cut of the film was infuriating, but not because it was awful, but because it questions the sanity of WB executives and editors and makes you wonder what were they thinking during the editing process. What I got out of the Ultimate Edition was a thought-provoking deconstruction of two very iconic superheroes that gave spotlight to the struggles both of them face when they aren't fighting crime. What I got was an extremely well produced character study on both Batman and Superman in a cynical world, a world dangerously close to our own. We meet Batman as a ruthless, worn out hero that has seen the failure behind his ideals and witnessed some truly horrifying things in his life. Superman, on the other hand, is portrayed as a godlike figure that seeks to do good in the world, but finds himself emotionally conflicted once he realized that every good deed he does leaves behind a trail of destruction (most of it due to Luthor's antics). In my opinion, this is a hugely original approach, one that distances itself from the rest of the competition and delivers a dark, somber, yet relevant superhero movie that understands both characters and gives them real human struggles to deal with. I felt invested in both of them, and hoped that by the end of the film both could find a way to redeem themselves. Their character arcs were very well established during the first two acts of the movie, and by the time we get to the titular climactic battle the emotion behind the jaw-dropping action is intensified. Lex Luthor as a villain was also given more time to develop with this new edition. One of the main criticisms with the original version was the fact that his plan relied too much on conveniences, and the character's mannerisms and mad-scientist attitude was annoying, and that goes without saying his motivations were unclear. Not only do we spend more time understanding his hate for any godlike figure and thus his hatred for Superman, but the added scenes allowed us to witness his entire plan come to fruition. It sells the cold, manipulative, calculating attributes of his comic counterpart. The acting is spot on. Every actor owns his/her role, from Cavill's Superman, to Ben Affleck as Batman, Eisenberg as Luthor, and Gadot as Wonder Woman, whose scenes are brief, but are more than enough to sell the strong and ferocious warrior that she is. Cinematography is stunning, and miles above that of Man of Steel's. And the soundtrack by Zimmer and Junkie XL? Perfect, just perfect. When it comes to flaws, the film still has some of those. The Martha moment, while serving as a pivotal character moment for Batman, felt off in execution, and its understandable that many people got mad at it. If your main complaint about BvS the first time around was its bleak tone and subject matter, this film is still not for you. I understand most were expecting to see the heroes being the most iconic versions of themselves, clashing in an elongated battle and evoking the same feelings The Avengers gave audiences back in 2012. In that sense, the film will remain divisive, but at least I have the comfort of saying that, at the very least, the film is competently made.
