Also they could've

completely eliminated the weird dream sequences and made the movie a bit shorter. The trench coat bat scene was cool but not really serving any purpose.

Seriously what are the critics smoking? I thought BvS was fantastic. One of my favorite superhero movies of all time (Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Man of Steel, X-Men First Class being the others). The drama, love, sacrifice, conflict; all that adult content that critics seem to shit on, gave it far more substance than what I expected. It is certainly a bit too long and might have a few unneeded scenes but as a whole it delivered the sensitivities missing from the gloves-on money grabs that Marvel produces these days. I wanted to hate Affleck (couldn't, he was superb) and Eisenberg grew on me.

decided to go see it again tonight. was a bit more enjoyable the second time around after i had time to digest the first viewing.

some gripes are:

batman basically has superman dead to rights and then 30 seconds later they seem to be best friends even to the point of superman trusting batman to save his mother, one of the few people he loves. had they given this a few more minutes of dialogue, i think this would've been better overall

also, how can superman sense that lois lane was tossed from the top of a building yet does not come to immediate rescue of his mother being kidnapped.

You should read the other dumb complaints have from other forums just to hate on, nitpick on every single detail.

what was he trying to accomplish in running to his building?

if he was in such a rush to get to his building, why did he land the helicopter at the water and drive halfway through the city?

what was the point of bruce running into the city like that? to save a little girl that had no idea would even be there?



And people think others are delusional for thinking there are some deep seeded hatred for DC out there when questions like this come up and never questions any Marvel films to this degree. lol8[1].gif

ha. you could do that with almost every movie out there. some people are just hating just to follow the crowd. you know this....it is not perfect by any means, but it's enjoyable for what it is.

Definitely not perfect but if it is dissected like that and criticize each action for it being logical then yah this is going to be the worst movie in the world but really what wouldn't be?


Anyways, saw it again tonight and got this pretty cool remembrance.

BvS is not the terrible movie the reviewers are making it out to be, but it´s also not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination. I liked it, but it was just OK. Affleck is awesome, Lex´s machinations too, but his character is too cartoonish, too childish. 

Though entertaining, it´s quite messy. It jumps around from one thing to the other with no breathing room.

Wait... What? Bruce Wayne is a filthy rich public figure in the city. He's well known by everyone and would have been featured on countless TV interviews. Everyone would be familiar enough his his voice to recognize what he sounds like. It would be incredibly dumb for him to NOT alter his voice as Batman to hide his identity.

It made perfect sense in the Nolan trilogy as it would in any other version of the character.

I liked it, too. Can't believe how wrong the reviews are.

The dream bits were some of my favorite parts - I would watch an entire move of fascist Superman. It's like Red Son!

I didn't mean an excuse to have the bat voice, I mean a practical way for him to achieve the bat voice instead of the growl.

I actually thought it was little jab at the Nolan films or at least at the fans who complained about it. It got a chuckle in my theater.

Except when it was just him and Alfred and he still had to do the voice just because he was wearing the Batman suit.

I haven't seen BvS yet so I don't know what you mean here, but Bruce using a "growl" makes perfect sense. People getting hung up on the whole Batman voice thing in Nolan's films always struck me as a little odd. I have a friend who got so hung up on it that he couldn't allow himself to enjoy any of the films.

I don't think the problem with Nolan/Bales voice was why he is using it more like its gotten worse from film to film that by TDKR you could barely understand him. At least I thought that was the problem. Bales Batvoice in BB was perfectly fine and it didn't need to sound more rough like it did in TDK and TDKR.

The only other thing I have heard but only a small minority is that they said they never really said that he changed his voice in the comics so it wasn't a true translation but I always thought it was implied and again it just made sense to change his voice.
