I really liked the movie. It was easy to follow as we all know the Bat is dark and has his own way of seeing who needs justice served upon them. Even though DC movies are not as good as the Marvel series they are still good on their own. I do like that they try to follow the comic books. Comic book readers know that their are many versions of the Bat crusader (dark to very dark). Bottom line they are great movies; so just relax and enjoy a Super Hero movie.

Marvel movies usually make DC movies look bad in my opinion. I really didn't like this movie and I disliked it more after I watched Thor Ragnarok. It felt like parts of the movie that were important to explain certain things were missing.

I don't like it either. It is quite boring and I don't get the sense of Batman getting angry with Superman. I know some of the people he loves died but for someone with high intellect, I expect him to understand that Superman did not intend that to happen. Also, just because his mom's name is the same as Superman's foster mother, you would just team up like that. Blinded by his anger motif was not enough to be the source of the flow of the story. I was hoping for something more but that did not happen.

I nearly walked out of the theatre when it first released for it being so ridiculous but the director's cut was a game changer.
Yeah technically it's even longer, but the story makes A LOT more sense and doesn't feel so mind numbingly long.

It was the climax, I think, that really solidified its status as a "bad film". The fact that Batman spends the entire film dead set against Superman and then, upon finding out their mothers share the same name, decides to team up with him? It's outrageous to say the least, and completely out of character.

Also, Batman has always been a darker hero, but he's being portrayed so antagonistically in this film. Between being against Superman and branding his victims, it's too dark.

The ending was also unnecessary. We all know that Superman is going to come back, because they're working on Justice League. The film just felt much too dark, even for DC, and incredibly ridiculous. And come on. Between Superman and Batman, it really isn't hard to see which is more powerful. And that's coming from a big Batman fan.
My thoughts exactly also there were so many references to comics that werent explained and that left people confused, when i was in the theatre many people didnt knew some references and others did so you could see that not everyone enjoyed it the same. Plus it made references from different comic books lines like injustice, batman v superman and the new 52 whichfor new comic fans can be confusing.

I liked it. I like that Batman. People say he's terrible but he's not. Also, I think Wonder Woman is the star of this movie. I was very disappointed when her movie was so bad.

Hahaha! funny. For me, it was a long awaiting show I have waited for so long to watch. My eyes were watering. One good thing that got me holding my breath was the fight the two guys had. the truth is, how could a guy like batty beats chief superintendent (superman) without much difficulties. I expected blood, broken bones. Batty is just to genius to get the ways to easy beat superman. Superman often feels he got the powers which no one else on earth could stand. I would like to see Thor vs. Man of Steel cage fight!
What y'all think?
Then I guess you're going to see the blood and broken bones falling off Thor's body... The only reason batman was able to beat superman was because he had access to a green cryptonite which is superman's weakness.

most people didn't get the point of the story. it's about the power of man. Batman has no special ability but he defeated the godlike superman.

I guess I didn't see the point in the movie...I mean, you have two superheroes who are supposed to protect the "little guys" and instead spend time fighting against each other. It wasn't my thing, and has made me hesitant to watch Justice League.

I loved it. This is one my favourite movie that I liked the most. And according to me it's one of Zack Snyder's master piece.
