June 13, 2018
A pretty hollow movie that wants to be more than just a superhero movie and showcase its characters because they are the most popular comic book characters of all time.
March 20, 2018
The results are shocking, at times borderline sadistic but effective. Like the musical score, which resembles a chorus of anvils, Batman v Superman pummels the audience into submission.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

WHen this movie is good, it is really, really good...but man, when it is not? Brace yourself. This movie suffers from fighting with itself for screen time.
February 24, 2018
It wants us to believe it's trafficking in topical notions of politics, religion, and moral ambiguity, but its main currency is our contemporary penchant for hip and affected pessimism.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it was pretty bad.
December 3, 2017
The movie is a colossal letdown on almost every front, but in some ways, it was to be expected considering the magnitude of what DC and Warner Bros. wanted to accomplish only two films into their shared universe
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Zack Snyder is not a subtle director. An understatement, I know. But it's more obvious than ever here.
November 17, 2017
As the pair pound away at each other, it's the hapless viewer who's left begging for mercy, battered into submission by Snyder's overbearing direction and Hans Zimmer's bombastic score.

By the time Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice concludes, don't be surprised if you're cranky and exhausted from its hectic, tumultuous conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is recommended only so you can end the almost three-year long wait to find out what happens in the epic collision, but unfortunately for nothing more than that.
October 24, 2017
It flits to and fro between them, often at dizzying speed, in a way that for a long time is quite enjoyable and yet always carried the danger that my head might explode. Batman... Superman... Batman... Superman... Lex Luthor!

October 13, 2017
Batman v Superman is not the franchise jump-starter anyone wanted. It's poison in the Justice League well.
September 20, 2017
Go for the Affleck, stay for the Gadot.
August 24, 2017
It's exactly what you're expecting, but longer, louder, and with an almost unfathomable amount of digitally created violence.
August 14, 2017
At two-and-a-half hours, the film features Wayne and Kent mostly glowering at each other at swanky high-rise parties as the rabble teems below.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
August 3, 2017
It is without question an important film today, and a quintessential product of the America we inhabit.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 26, 2017
Ultimately, Batman v. Superman is a film with no real reason for being, other than to usher in the next round of DC Universe films, and to provide a bunch of explosions.
June 1, 2017
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is such a bleak, disorienting and incoherent mess that despite the few promising moments that sporadically appear, it's nearly impossible to enjoy.
April 12, 2017
There is much to claw through here, so much so that the audience might easily find themselves exhausted from the overall aggression of the film. However, a lot of the story does work. The action is good, and the emotion feels real most of the time.
March 23, 2017
Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is not so much a movie as it is an extended warning: You comic book movie fans better like this, because there's going to be a hell of a lot more where this came from.
