What a film Henry Cavill is amazing as Superman Ben Affleck is the best batman by a mile Zack Snyder has produce best CBM of all time
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.
Had Snyder stuck to what he knew and provided a panel by panel reproduction of ‘The Dark Knight’ this movie would have been good if unoriginal. Being original isn’t something Snyder and team can be accused of because they are incapable of telling a story. The movie is an excuse for a stupid centre piece that within the context of the movie holds no logic and that is the stupid, sad, fanboy moment, the fight between S&B. Had they thought about the story as much as how the characters get to the point where they are fighting one another then it would have proven to be effective like Civil War but this excuse for a movie can’t be bothered with the set up. It is just interested in getting the audience to the punch up. This movie is an excellent example of how a studio blows to the whims of short sighted fans, ignores the context of the source material to provide a macho spectacle. The Rocky movies have more story and sense than this and o hate boxing movies. Don’t treat your audience like idiots.
Great film, Ben afflecks batman is violently brilliant...
lol Vanquished h
I thought the film was called batman vs superman, not batman and superman fight for 2 seconds. Worst 2 hrs and 40 means bs ever

The Ultimate Edition Is The Best Version Of This Film
It’s Really Really Good 🙂👍🏻👍🏻
I know it polarised critics and audiences, but I really like this film. Yes, it's dark and brooding, but why not? We already have the MCU full of fun and humour so it makes sense DC went in a different direction. Ben Afleck is excellent as Batman/Bruce Wayne and the spirit is true to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns - which is also very dark. The plot is a bit convoluted, but maybe a blockbuster film that requires you to pay attention is a good thing? Like a lot of other films, I think it improves on second watching and the Ultimate Edition makes the character's motives clearer. Find out for yourself and ignore some of the excessive hate. There are some awful superhero films out there, this is not one of them...
First off, when Infirst was this film, I thought it was so bad. The plot made no sense, the pacing was a bit off and it was a bit long winded. I really didn’t expect anything good from this film and I was. SC want to be just as good as Marvel. But Marvel is smarter than DC. They planned out their movies, for years. Developed origin stories and fleshedbthem our. The reason why Cival War worked and BvS didn’t was because the MCU have been at it for years and released about 12 movies before Civial War. That’s why Cival War has a bigger impact. But BvS ha dinky 1 movie before this film. So I felt like they could have waited a bit and then had this film.
But watching it a second time is loads better. I think this is because I watched all the previous older Batman and Superman movies and some were ok, some were awful. But yea, this film is what it is.
This film confused me in how bad the story line was. Manly because there wasn’t one and that happens to be very important. Jesse was alright though but Affleck was poor
Love this movie
Critics don’t need to exist here for this movie
This is a critic zone free movie.
This film takes everything from the original 1966 movie and eats it all up by having a terrible director, The only good part is Hans Zimmer's music.
Adds more to the film and includes key scenes missing from the theatrical release
This film starts off well but understated in that sets the mood for Ben Affleck's Batman; a dark, lonely and cruel portrayal of a superhero worn down and becoming defeated by constant crime fighting and the loss of his parents and of Robin (Jeremy Irons' "the fever…." speech is the most powerful dialogue in the film). Henry Cavill's portrayal of a Superman who is beginning to lose the will to save the world creates a vulnerability within the Man Of Steel. Jeremy Irons is a stunning Alfred, no doubt hiding his fears for Bruce Wayne under gallows humour.
Lex Luther's Portrayal by Jessie encapsulates well the control, callous logic and disorderly acting out that can plague a psychopath who has experienced a horrendous childhood at the hands of a sadistic parent. But the stand-out performance is by Gal Gadot; the scene in the aircraft where Diana Prince is sitting and just allowing her eyes to express her inner conflict is so understated yet powerful and confirms her acting talent.
Superhero Movies are not just Superhero Action flicks; they're about the conflict, good and evil in us all and our constant need and desire to be making a better world, the conflict of how we want to achieve that and how strive to become the best creatures we can be.
Amazing Movie, probably one of my favorites. IGNORE THE MOVIE CRITICS, best thing is Ben Affleck out of this movie, such a great batman, fierce, badass.
Absolutely loved this. I think people shouldn't watch thinking batman is going to be like Bale batman. Have to think of it as a totally separate film. Its more like a Superman 2 with Batman in. Bale is tough to follow and I thought Affleck was awesome.
Great with all the Superman music and cast.
Can't wait for the next.
This is the worst film ever it doesn't make any sense and is a total waste of time
They released the 3 hour extended cut - where is it? I can't take Itunes extras with me to areas with no wifi access, so BRING BACK THE 3 HOUR CUT!!!
Great and awesome!! Give 5 stars !!
This is extrememly weak for both brands.
Batman the actual character is not in this film much and there was a heck of a lot of Ben looking pretty in a suit. Lois is happy to take it from .... Hmm .... support Superman, but isn't a significant character in this film.
Could rant more on this one, but i'm sure there's a limit to how much text you can post at one time ;-)
The runtime is listed as 2hrs 31mins, suggesting the theatrical cut whilst the iTunes Extras preview suggest the Ultimate Cut is available - which one is it, or is it both?
It's not a superman movie neither a batman movie. Very disappointing to me. Ruined superman and batman for me.
Waste of money and time.
Wish I could rate it under one star.
I hated it. It might be the worst film ever made. I dont recomend.
The movie 🎥 is beautiful it's a follow up from man of steel but you can see why batman sees superman as a threat as superman fights Zod and crushes buildings, cars and killing injuring and killing people through the entire city and Bruce Wayne office and building gets demolished after superman and zod fighting.
Batman sees him as a threat, superman sees batman as a threat to people as he uses fear as judgment on criminals. The government and politicians stirring up even more things around metropolis and Gotham city and lex luthour himself plucking strings in this movie plucking strings on superman and the city as he plans something horrid across the city...
The story focuses on superman and batman and people around metropolis and Gotham as things turn for the worst for both of them. Superman is trying to do the right thing so is batman trying to do the right thing but both of them are conflicted of the problems happening to them. Until they meet face to face in a battle of man vs a god.... and more things to discover the truth of who is the real villain pulling the strings...
This is a great movie a lot of people loved it and a lot of people hated it which I don't see why would you hate it maybe it's not your cuppa tea maybe it's not for you maybe it's you may not like superman or batman two of my favs characters in the dc comics and in movies
If you like comics and movies of your fav dc heroes and even for ones who like the dark and gritty movies this is for you this movie was made for the dc fans. You can tell a lot of hope and love and even hard work was put into this film I think The producers and director and script writers did a great job with this film even getting inspired by frank millian comic novels such as his definitive batman origin story of the bob Kane and bill finger story batman and his batman the dark knight returns where batman is fifty years old as he takes and wears his batman suit again and saving Gotham and ridding the enemies through the streets of Gotham city... this movie was a great movie once again I would recommend it to dc fans and for fans who are in love for the darker and gritty tones of movies
Better than expected.
Don't know what the critics were whinging about. It's a superbly conceived and executed super hero movie with teeth. Quite special. The last Avengers & Cap movies have been asinine & dull. Tony Stark creates something which nearly destroys the world, they kiss and make up anyway because hey, 'friends' right? Then they fall out because, 'you're not the boss of me'. Honestly, who gives a crap Cap? Totally unsympathetic. This movie deals with consequences and is so much more relatable for it. I mean it's a superhero movie so it's still daft, but it pulls it off. The action direction is beautiful.
Btw. Leaving low stars because Apple screwed up is idiotic. It changes nothing in their behaviour and only harms the movie and the likelihood of the studios doing something similar again. Lord knows they're already under pressure to go technicolour and 'Marvel'. We need to let them know we like this stuff!
This is truly a great film. I'm not sure why people are only giving it 1 star just because of a glitch. The film itself is great. Ben Affleck is a great choice as he brought a touch of anger to the batman
Great movie and at £1.99 even better
Thanks apple for a lovely Christmas time
LITERALLY the worst film I have ever seen EVER!
This is a truly terrible film. Batman is a xenophobic, facist, psychopath and Superman is a sullen, selfish, sociopath.
These are the worst portrayals of these icons I've ever seen in a story so dark with 'heroes' full of fear and causing terror to innocents and each other.
The ultimate cut is the version to watch as this the film Zach Snyder wanted to release... The theatrical cut is atill awesome and slimmer but its just not as baroque with detail and backstory. All in all great films.
After hearing bad reviews about this movie I put off watching it for a few years. I thought it was great! makes sense, nice plot, great acting, great special effect. All in all really enjoyed the movie!
Was put off this film for months because of the bad reviews, but I have to say I really enjoyed it. OK it's not going down on my top 100 movies ever list, but it is really enjoyable if you are a bit of a fan boy such as myself !
It's simple,m to review this film. I've left during a film at the cinema only once in my life...... This was it.
Great cgi, and if you like DC, it's got hope, but if you like DC, it could have been so much more. If you don't like DC, don't waste your cash
This film is a great film, don't listen to the critics. Ben afleck and Henry carvil are great in this film
All I can say is the special effects were good. I get it wasn't meant to be your "traditional" superhero movie but it was one of the worst films I've seen. I couldn't even watch it to the end. Don't even get me started on the storyline. Awful.
Like several other reviews I too have been frustrated by the issues associated with playing the ultimate edition.
I would have preferred to have had the option of buying the Ultimate or Cinema editions. At least then I would be able to download and watch the ultimate version. At present I think my choices are looking at google or buying the Blu-Ray.
Very frustrating given the price
Disappointed the Ultimate Edition is "only" included as an extra. I always download the actual film and keep as a backup but obviously one can't now download an "extra". So if iTunes at some stage withdraw or change the extras, we will no longer have this version as an option. I believe the USA store gives you the choice of which version to buy as the main choice so why not this choice on the UK store?
Update: Now nearly the end of August and still iTunes not making the Ultimate Edition available except as an extra. Sorry Apple but I can only give you a little more time before (taking what I have thought for some time would be a retrograde step and) buying the Blu Ray, especially as I can future-proof myself somewhat by buying the package which includes the 4K version as well as the "normal" HD.
Didn't have massive expectations enjoyed it for what it was. Good super hero film.
Not a bad film, but also not the best..it was enjoyable but when it got to the end it was just, ok good but not great
If you want to watch the extended cut make sure you've got a wifi connection, because you can't download it! I thought I had downloaded it and started to watch only to realise 40mins in that I was streaming it over my cellular connection and had already blown through 4gb of my data plan! Seriously not impressed! Next time I'll be spending my money somewhere else!
For all those people who were complaining about the issues with streaming the ultimate edition I had no problems. Yes it is slightly annoying I need internet to watch it but oh well. The movie was completely smooth throughout. The film itself was spectacular with the added scenes really adding extra depth to the film. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck are both perfect for their roles, with Superman really coming into his own as a very unique incarnation of the character. This took the brooding and rather boring atmosphere of Man of Steel and made it far more exciting but still thought provoking and fits well with modern society. Overall this film, and its extended edition, are masterpieces which are ignored due to the bias of people towards the action of very generic Marvel films.
Despite much of the media bores criticising the movie (get a real job) I actually enjoyed this. Action was fun & the BvS fight scene didnt dissapoint. Although there were occasional plot-holes where the pace jumped too quickly, leaving me confused. On the whole however, a movie thats worth the £4.49 rent on Itunes
Can't give this more than 3. The whole premise was bad for me and the plot wasn't very good. The worst bad guy ever and it didn't have any feel of a super hero movie. Worst superman film in my view.
Wow, it's officially a tie "Hateful 8"...aka "dreadful 8" for complete waste of my time.
Thanks for ruining another super hero movie!!
Sack Snyder is a genius. Critics are to dumb to understand its philosophical meaning. Best movieeeeee eveeeeer
I rented this a couple of weeks ago: and frankly?
Found it a bit too long, and very padded out.
Frankly? And even given Ben Affleck made for a very good Bruce Wayne, in retrospect, I should have spent my money on something else.
