A very misunderstood film that is a handful of flaws away from being a masterpiece. The film is both sequel to 2013's Man of Steel and a prequel to 2017's Justice League. The film has a lot to accomplish in it's 2 hour and 20+ minutes of screen time. There is plenty of action, intrigue, and character drama to entertain. There is so much symbolism and philosophy presented in this film that is not in other comic book films, let alone other DC films. This film takes a lot of risks, some work and others don't. All in all this is an incredible film. Think The Dark Knight meets Watchmen.

Illustrates how dangerous and selfish egos can be.

Good special effects and talented actors fail to compensate for the poor writing and nonsensical plot, with unbelievable character motivations. Lots of sound and fury signifying nothing. We stopped watching after 20 minutes.

Wow, Jesse Eisenberg was mind blowing at Lex. This was a great movie.

Most infuriating cliffhanger EVER. I won't spoil it, but just be warned.
Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, and Jesse Eisenberg were amazing in this film. I loved the part where the evil monster thingy is about to destroy the city and then Wonder Woman arrives and is SO epic.
P.S. I actually think this film is better than Justice League, by a long shot.

Batman VS Superman was actually a lot better than I had imagined. Prior to watching it, I had received many negative and mixed reviews but I enjoyed it. It was filled with the right amount of action and the storyline was quite clear. However, some points of the movie were a bit slow but even still, it was quite enjoyable and interesting to watch. Henry Cavill acted brilliantly, as did the other actors in this movie.

The trailer gave away the movie which sucked and they should have left doomsday out of it and chose someone else. This could just be me, but i feel doomsday should have his own movie.

Well, on the one hand, Batman is supposed to be a little smarter, but ok, so he gets REALLY depressed, worse, jealous-angry because HIS woman was not saved from death while... But Jealous to that degree? So he becomes conflicted and disillusioned to the point of blindness, so can be manipulated into what would break any superhero lover's heart, right? OUCH. Because jealousy is proof of love? Well, there are those who believe that. But it's about a comic book hero. Dangggggggggg AND OUCH! Well, the subtitle is "The DAWN of Justice" - ahhh, I get it, Batman was caught ethically sleeping. Well, in any case, it becomes about a hero who has to overcome a lot of stuff, but I guess even our comic book heros sometimes get to be more human than we want them to be. On the other hand, while superman was understandably (?) confused, Wonder Woman was just wondrous, didn't miss a clue, a moment, and rarely a punch. Dangggggggggg! ;-)

I liked the movie. I can't help comparing it to Captian America: Civil War since they came out around the same time and are so similar. I must say B v S did it better. It was believable that Batman and Superman would fight each other. The music was beautiful and the movie really built up to the final fight. And of course, Wonder Woman was awesome. The movie made me cry a bit which rarely happens with movies I see.

Tons already posted at IMDb. Here is a few good examples, but by no means the best lines:

Batman: I bet your parents taught you that you mean something, that you're here for a reason. My parents taught me a different lesson, dying in the gutter for no reason at all... They taught me the world only makes sense if you force it to.
===
Lois Lane: You're psychotic.
Lex Luthor: That is a three syllable word for any thought too big for little minds.
===
Bruce Wayne: You're not brave... men are brave. You say that you want to help people, but you can't feel their pain... their mortality... it's time you learn what it means to be a man.
===
Superman: All this time I've been living my life the way my father saw it. Righting wrongs for a ghost, thinking I'm here to do good. Superman was never real. Just the dream of a farmer from Kansas.

Stay down if I wanted it you`d be dead already! Superman to Batman.

Breathe it in that's fear! Your not brave men are brave! Batman to Superman

Tell Me do You bleed You will! Batman to Superman
