Director Zack Snyder and four screenwriters, including David S. Goyer, opt for a darker tone than audiences are accustomed to in Superman films. This time it works, however, with the inclusion of Batman giving it a grittier edge.

Snyder's Superman is the most universally relatable version of the character yet and the social, political and cultural significance of BvS will be appreciated over time

Zack Snyder ends decades of anticipation and finally brings both Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

It's difficult to not feel like a lot of "Batman v Superman" is an exhaustive - and expensive- effort from DC and Warner Bros. to catch up to Disney and Marvel's well-oiled cinematic universe.

Say what you will about this cluttered, densely plotted do gooder yarn; it sure doesn't play like escapism.

If you like Batman v. Superman already, then you'll definitely enjoy the ultimate cut.

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.

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!

Go for the Affleck, stay for the Gadot.

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.

Snyder knows how to paint a picture but perhaps needs to stay away from the writing process. Watch the Ultimate Edition when you can, and see if it changes how you feel about the movie. It sure did me.
September 8, 2016
Snyder has brought a different edge to the superhero genre, one that questions what drives these men of steel and creatures of the night to do what they do and believe what they believe. There is something to admire in that.

It wants to be a lot of things, and it keeps on falling short; but it's not afraid to go Very Big in its attempts to return to the idea of superheroes as modern mythology.

The film is not as unfortunate as some say and is not as bright as others would. [Full review in Spanish]
April 6, 2016
You take the good. You take the bad. You take them both and there you have a Zack Snyder film. It's par for the course for anyone who's followed his films. A little pleasantry and a little frustration mixed together.

April 4, 2016
In this age of petty Marvels, most comic-book movies merely perpetrate fantasies of power, but Snyder, enacting his personal aesthetic, braves a film that examines those fantasies. He boldly challenges popular culture's current decay.

Snyder keeps his stylle but he also seems more controlled, it seems the director paid attention to the criticism he received on the catastophic ending of his last DC venture. [Full review in Spanish]

Batman v Superman is a lunking, clumsy, beautiful and thrilling behemoth of a film. The faults are there for all to see. But so are the good points.

The film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous. But it looks amazing and is relentlessly gripping.
