The Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale films set the bar so high on the Batman movies that this one fell short for me. I didn't buy Ben Affleck as Batman--not tortured enough for me. Henry Cavill is an excellent Superman though.

The ultimate edition of this movie and Man Of Steel I feel are the two best comic book movies ever made. If you enjoyed Watchmen and like a darker more dramatic action movie than you should like this. Superman has begun his work as a super hero after the events in Man Of Steel and Batman is questioning his intentions and abilities with good reason while Clark is questioning the actions of the bat vigiliante (this Batman lost his way and is killing people) but after their battle they come together and get on the same page to face a bigger threat. Other famous DC characters are introduced and the fight scenes are incredible. Check out the DC Universe Zack Snyder and his team created.

Complete waste of time. Lots of hype though, too bad I fell for it.

Honestly not as bad or as good as most people say. In all, it is sloppy. It should have been cut drastically differently and had story lines removed. The action is cool, but the story makes no sense. People did not dislike this movie because it made you think. In fact, the logic is almost nonexistent in this movie. Beautiful movie to watch on mute.

Terrible Terrible Terrible !!!!! Gal Gadot is the only thing worth watching

There is no WAY Batman would win a fight with Superman! I loved comics as a kid and love sci-fi and these superhero movies as an adult, but i truly cringe at this movie, should never had been made, plus not a fan of Ben Affleck being Batman but that's a separate story for another review. Anyway, putting all true physics aside and also knowing that this is all fantasy...still, Superman would CRUSH Batman instantly if he truly wanted to. Come on! As for Wonder Woman, that's a GREAT movie! I sure hope The Justice League movies fair better than this one. I was a big fan of The Justice League as a kid and can't wait for those movies, sure hope they are as good as Wonder Woman.

Not sure why critics did not like this movie. Perhaps you had to think.
Definitely a dark movie. Superheros aren't alway happy and solve everything.
Interesting moral issues presented.
Not a perfect movie. I could not believe Batman has all those issues almost like Post stess.
Didn't deserve the panning.
Not for little kids.

If you are expecting a Marvel-type movie, this is not for you.
If you are expecting an uplifting superhero movie, this is not for you.
If you are expecting a dark drama featuring familiar comic superheroes embattled in mature and violent themes, then you might enjoy this movie. I did.
If you have young children, do not show them this movie. They won't get anything out of it but nightmares.

Horribly dark, depressing, violent and angry. Just an awful, awful movie with far too much gratuitous bloodshed and torture. Definitely wouldn't recommend letting kids under 14 see it. I don't recommend adults see it either, for that matter.

Bruce Wayne: We're criminals, Alfred. We've always been criminals. Nothing's changed.

Alfred: Oh, yes it has, sir. Everything's changed. Men fall from the sky, the gods hurl thunderbolts, innocents die. That's how it starts, sir. The fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men... cruel.
