In the aftermath of the devastating battle between Superman and General Zod, Bruce Wayne seeks to hold him accountable for the death and destruction they wrought. Set immediately after the events of Man Of Steel, Dawn Of Justice seeks to flesh out the greyer areas of the DC universe. Exploring the idea of an unaccountable, self-appointed saviour with unimaginable power and the moral dilemmas this presents is actually very interesting and as I saw the caped crusader's vendetta against a man whom he sees as considering himself above the law - and the obvious hypocrisy of this - I thought that the film had been unfairly maligned by its savaging at the hands of many critics. Unfortunately, for the last reel all becomes clear as to why it was so poorly received; it's an utterly pointless and …

Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice is a movie that comes now. Down right Snyder's vision for this film and the elements that lead to the big conflict of the two heroes, as mentioned the greatest gladiator match for the night takes lot of time and almost eats one half completely. I agree that the plot points are covered up, the same old stuff kryptonite and dragged up scenes and the conflict of batman and superman reasons are all given, but lazily written slow burner and eats most of the run time for the setup. Snyder direction is smooth, and slow really slow. Scenes are coming, moving by and again coming, lengthy drama moments, patchy editing and way too slow narrative. Fan boys and girls, wait for 90 minutes to complete, to see the clash. Otherwise, just stay there, blaming the makers …

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is best in class epic superhero FILMMAKING. That is a compliment on the off chance that you lean toward these motion pictures to be massive, disrupted and sullen, yet a notice on the off chance that you favor tonal variety from film to film and scene to scene, and have a weakness for narrating that really advises, you know, a story, instead of doing an once in a while roused yet generally simply skilled employment of setting up the following part in a Marvel-styled establishment.
The story starts with yet another flashback to youthful Bruce Wayne seeing his folks' homicide by a firearm wielding mugger, trailed by a sectioning injury, his experience with a group of bats in a cavern close stately Wayne Manor. As co-composed by Chris Terrio and David …

'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is not the film which many were hoping for. I was left disappointed in the lack of a coherent plot/story, as well as the absence of conflict between the two title characters. This movie should've been retitled: 'Justice League Setup: The Movie', cause that's all that was really accomplished. Well, poorly so. It starts with a strong opening series of scenes that setup our new Bruce Wayne/Batman quite easily. We immediately find the exact tone and nature with this incarnation of the character and see his reaction/loss during the events of the finale of 'Man of Steel'. Then we check in with Superman... and nothing new is worth reporting. He's the same as where we left him in the last movie; brooding over the choice in use for his god-like powers …

Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice has every hallmark of every superhero epic released these days. It features a high-concept premise, stunt casting great actors in supporting roles, bombastic musical score when the action lets up, explosions brighter than the sun, and a climax that inevitably boils down to a CGI rendered slugfest. And when it is just that, BVS:DOJ is solid entertainment and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't cheered on by every minute of it.
But there are problems, GLARING problems that need to be addressed. The script is messy and clunky while the tone is wildly uneven. Again, when the movie hits its stride it's spectacular but there are many moments which beg the question "why?" or "what's the point?". Much of it comes from the unnecessary padding to add references …

The critics may have lambasted Dawn of Justice, but I find it didn't warrant the withering 29% Rotten Tomatoes score it currently sits at. That's not to say Batman v Superman doesn't have issues (it surely does) but it isn't as bad as, say, the Transformers films. If you can stick this one out - the film gives you something good to look forward to but you'll have to wait around for the good stuff.
The main issue with Dawn of Justice is that it jumps around so much yet accomplishes so little in its 2 1/2 hour running time. The opening jumps from Batman's origins, the deserts of Africa to Superman saving a bunch of people to the Daily Planet to dream sequences to Lex Corp - it boggles the mind to try to follow this haphazard yet quite boring series of events. You see, despite the titles …

Batman: "Tell me, do you bleed? You will".
Dutch: "If it bleeds, we can kill it".
Superman has become the savior of Metropolis - but also a threat to many who fear his god-like abilities could lead to disaster. Gotham City's own Batman is among them, and he goes to confront the Man of Steel - but as these two titans clash, a new evil arises - one that poses a far greater threat to mankind.
The wait is finally over everyone, but was it worth waiting three years for? kind of. But how amazing is it that two of the most iconic superheros of all time are finally facing off with each other in one single movie. Unfortunately, not everyone was excited for it after the very mixed 'Man of Steel', as fans either loved it, liked it or hated the movie. Everyone was Curious, but also worried …

If you’re like me and grew up watching the Superman movies of the 1970s/1980s, you probably left the theater after watching "Man of Steele," the movie that precedes "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice," scratching your head and wondering what was up with all of that destruction. Superman defeated General Zod, but in the process, thousands of people perished in that epic battle that took place in the heart of Metropolis. The sight of demolished skyscrapers and scorched earth left a bad taste in the mouths of many of us. Bruce Wayne was not immune to this malaise at seeing his own city’s guts ripped out in plain view. That’s where "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" picks up. Like the rest of us, Wayne (Ben Affleck) is starting to question Superman’s (Henry Cavill) …
