Great Film overall
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Batman v Superman was anticipated by many and upon its release crushed all hopes of good DCEU movies. At least that's what the critics said. A billion bucks in the box office despite poor reviews is an achievement. I have to say, the theatrical release had its flaws, most of them due to the editing, incoherent storytelling at times and Jesse Eisenberg. I'm glad to say that Zack Snyder's Ultimate Edition is here to fix most of it. Snyder is infamous for his cuts. Every movie that he released a director's cut for improved the theatrical release by a mile. Watchmen is a prime example, if the theatrical version is a 9 from me - the director's cut is a 10. I honestly hate when the producers cut the movie so much that the film loses a lot of characterization and becomes extremely choppy. Thankfully, with Zack Snyder's Ultimate Cut, the lengthy runtime is very well justified. It fixes the pacing, stretches action sequences, and lets us understand more about Batman and Superman's rivalry. It's still very flawed, however. Lois Lane's character is pretty much irrelevant, even though they tried to give her some purpose to be in the film. Jesse Eisenberg's odd choice of mimicking Heath Ledger's Joker with that horrible squeaky voice and constant twitching made him extremely annoying and overwhelming to watch. The movie also seems to suffer from a lot of studio involvement because it tries fit so many different comic books into one. It should've just been Batman v Superman, but it also spent quite some time setting up Justice League and Wonder Woman, as well as going by the Death of Superman route. To me, the positives overcome the negatives in this flick and made it an enjoyable watch. Also, Ben Affleck was unfairly criticized for this role, while actually being the best part of the movie.
The plot was not one of the big hits, but it's not weak. Ben Affleck is the best Batman in action so far, but I still prefer The Dark Knight Trilogy because it's so much more complex. Of course the armor of Batman V Superman is superior in fidelity to comics, but the most pleasant, at least for me, is The Dark Knight batsuit. The Batmobile is incredible on the scene, but I really wanted to have seen more of 'real' footage. Gal Gadot is wonderful as Wonder Woman, and her armor, with sword and shield, really fits beautifully into the beautiful actress. The somber photography lives up to the theme. Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor is forced, and out of his mind, and, perhaps, pleased for it. Doomsday's design is beautiful, but I'd like to see something more like comics. Zimmer made a well-placed track with the sequences themselves, and this is favorable for those watching.The opening sequence is very good, as I liked the insinuation, with the firearm breaking a collar, that material goods will never be more valuable than the lives of innocent people. The action is satisfying, and the battle between the main characters of this story pleases, until the surprising end. When Superman quotes that name, we clearly see that Bruce remembers his past. It seemed to me that Bruce thought Superman was saying that he had been afraid at the most tense moment of his life, as if he were mocking. When Lois arrives, bringing up, there is a certain thing that men are closer to these gods than one imagines. The script is great, the effect phrases told by Bruce and Luthor are really good, really, and they made me think about certain things. The cons of this film are the stuntmen in CG, who appear suddenly at that moment of action that is involved, and that even the computer-generated monster disrupts the illusion of cinema. I know I look boring, but I do not like that, really. Of course, the best action scene of the film is made when Batman goes to rescue Martha Lane, as if he was doing for somebody what he had not done for himself, because he was just a child, without strength or courage. When Bruce says "I believe you." for the guy who threatened Martha, he seems to remember that thugs always have the courage to kill innocent people, as he once saw himself, and he feels obliged to do something immediately, like a man made, and full of technological resources. The moment that Superman sacrifices himself, after telling Lois that he loved her, I understand a reference to Jehovah, the son of God, according to "The Holy Bible." At times, the feature film looks a lot like an epic story of gods, even more so by the quotes of Lex Luthor. The final moment seems to make it clear that there will be a resurrection, too. Several movies, even with fictional and unreal characters, seem to remember news stories or other stories we have ever heard.Finally, the best thing about the movie was the new movie Batman. That's what I wanted to see, a dark character, both visually and emotionally speaking. I mean talking about the mother is another matter.
I have never written a review on here before but after my third viewing of this i had to.First, it is not perfect. The pacing is too slow for my liking, Lex Luthor is infuriating & this version of Doomsday was wasted.However, there is a lot to like here. This is a visually stunning movie at times. I loved the armoured batsuit and the whole fight scene. Also, the warehouse scene is the best live action batman combat we've ever had.Lex's plan gets a lot of hatred, but each time i watch this i notice something else about it. Its a great, Lex Luthor plan. It's just a shame the portrayl of Luthor overshadows it.It's not the type of superhero movies people expected or maybe wantes, but that isn't what snyder set out to do. It's just sad that we'll never see all of what he had planned for the DCEU but hopefully with Aquaman and Shazam! Better things are coming.Possibly not the movie we deserved, but a damn good one.
I am not a fan of Marvel universe. maybe, I am too old for that and for series I am too selective. the only reason for see the film - the memories from childhood about this super-heroes. the only sin of film - it has the ambition to propose too much. a new perspective, a new hero, a predictable confrontation, a villain from so many other films of same genre. the great virtue - the performances. and the effort to give a nice definition for super hero. in essence, all good point and flaws and mistakes of the film from same genre.
