Watch the ultimate edition. Edit: You can find more in my other review.

"How he decides which lives count and which ones do not"

Name one superhero movie which asked this or something barely similar to this other than Watchmen.

Controversial superhero films like these, BvS and Watchmen, are just over the heads of people who expect a cookie cutter happy ending movie.

A lot of people hated this movie because of Eisenberg's Luthor, stuff that wasn't explained, Batman kills, long of a movie, the Martha scene, and the rest goes to nitpick mode. Some people can't see the big picture, they just don't care. This movie simultaneously balanced realistic ideas and concepts and seamlessly merged them into the characters' story arc allowing them to develop in a more realistic and comic accurate manner. The amount of depth and thought put into this film is unseen in previous comic book films. This movie focuses on more mature themes to drive the story, as a result, it feels more real and enhances the general feel of the movie because it has a greater sense of reality.

Its a shame most of these elements went straight over people's heads. They're criticizing the movie because their hype didn't live up to it. Because of this they're biased against the movie. They don't want to understand it.

Snyder made something so controversial that the DC's own fans turned against this universe. Most of them probably won't even give this movie a chance to rewatch it. They're just blinded by what they saw in the comics. Average viewers didn't know what they were getting into. They expected something more simple. They couldn't get into the movie, so they wanted to hate it. Proffesional critics didn't like the movie because... Yeah, why they didn't like it? The cinematography was perfect, the score was on point, dialogs were brilliant, the acting was good, the plot was challenging, the story was unique. Maybe because they expected sun to come out. Maybe because they expected something light, something funny, something casual. 'Cause clearly today's blockbuster movies needs to be all about these materials for critics. But just because a movie didn't follow the procedure doesn't mean it's bad. Just because a movie is dark doesn't mean it's bad. Just because a movie doesn't contain jokes doesnt mean it's bad. Maybe those critics haven't seen 'Schindler's List' yet. Well, that's must be really bad.

I can understand some of you guys saying ''it was a mess''. You're right, the theatrical cut was really a mess but the Extended Cut is actually created a cohesive film and have gained quite a following for it's understanding of character and exploring and understandig the mythology of DC characters. But still, some of those guys don't care about how Extended Cut is because they're determined to hate, so let's just continue with smaller plot points that bugging our minds.

'The Movie's name'

Because 'V' is in the movie's name, you guys expected a fight between Batman and Superman throughout the movie - you thought the whole movie was building up for this fight so you didn't care much anything else and when it finally happened you disappointed it because of its length and some other reasons. But some of you misinterpreted the title. Although there is no difference as both are abbreviations for the same word, 'v' is used when one party has a grievance against another. Snyder said that they used "v" instead of "vs" in the title because they didn't want people to think the whole movie was just one big fight between the two. Well, I guess that was in vain.

'Why Lex want to kill Superman'

Because of what Superman represented.

''Superman has no remorse for the destruction he caused in the first movie. He is not even thinking about anyone's safety.''(Nitpicking)

-You can't know that because this movie tells about events that happened 2 years after the first movie.

**SPOILERS AHEAD**

''Just like in the first movie, there is an apocalypse level destruction. Superman himself contributes to some of it. Thousands are probably killed, but Superman only saves Lois Lane''(Nitpicking)

-Because she is Superman's world. And you can not know if people killed or not.

'There is no villain to solve in the story'

-There's always two kinds of villian; there's the soldier villain - who fights the hero with his hands; and then there's the real threat - the brilliant and evil archenemy - who fights the hero with his mind.(-Unbreakable)

-I know this wasn't your typical superhero. I know you guys expected something more simple. I know that this movie can't understandable with only one watching. But does the movie really need to pinpoint the villain? Look, If you wanna a villain super bad, then just choose it. Anybody can be a villain in this story. You don't have to bash the movie for it.

'There is no purpose, motive or problem to solve in the story'

-I cannot explain this in words. Or maybe i already did. Both in this and in my other review.

'Superman threatens Batman that he can easily kill Batman, twice.'(Nitpicking)

-What should he do to warn him then?

''Batman STEALING from Lex Luthor so HE gets to exact revenge on Superman''(Nitpicking)

-What do you mean 'exact revenge on Superman' you just made something up on your mind.

-And what's wrong with STEALING? You talk like you know a lot about this version of Batman. Was it you who created him?

''Batman uses guns to kill. He even dreams of gun battles.''

-He doesn't kill humans for no reason though. There is more behind of his story. We haven't told much.

-I never seen him holding his own gun to someone else. He uses his car to blow up someone's brains out.

-That dream wasn't a dream actually. It was a different timeline where Superman turned evil.(We've learned this from Justice League)

-It's really sad that some people define Batman off of one aspect, and act like if Batman kills someone "it's not even Batman anymore" or "they ruined the character". You don't know what kind of universe is this. Some versions of him kill, some versions don't. This version of Batman is whole new take on.

''Luthor comes up with the idea that since the ship has a bio-metric security, he can use Zod's body to gain access. It did not cross anyone else's mind''(Nitpicking)

-Why would cross someone else's mind that kind of thing?

''The all powerful Kryptonian key has no security''(Nitpicking)

-Why would it need security?

''Kryptonians have banned the technology to create Doomsday. It's so dangerous, they decide not to remove it''(Nitpicking)

-Maybe they are not able to remove it? And this -Kryptonians banning the technology to create Doomsday- also signs that the real Doomsday is out there somewhere. Which means they didn't kill off the real Doomsday.

''Doomsday appears so that Zack Snyder can once again have a city-leveling battle.''(Nitpicking)

-That was Luthor's second plan to kill Superman. And Superman is dead. Also, this gives the movie epicness. It shows Luthor's cleverness. It gives Wonder Woman more screen time. It was essential for the story to continue. It was needed for Batman to understand Superman. It's your problem to look at this one way. Or maybe you just ''nitpicking'' to create criticizing material.

''How does Luthor know what Batman has planned?''

-Luthor made possible that fight. What do you mean ''how is he know?''

''And of course Batman finds Martha in a jiffy because he is''

-Batman didn't find Martha, Alfred did.

Some of these 'small plot points' are just pointless. It's like you people are just want to dislike this movie.

I saw a review from a ''top critic'' on Rotten Tomatoes saying that opening scene was needless, Lois Lane was completely useless, there were a lot of characters, there is no focus on one thing. These comments are just biased with his/her fanboyism. And he/she doesn't care if the movie full of emotion or not. He/she says ''opening scene was needless because we've all seen this before'' but can't comprehend its depth. I mean how can a ''professional critic'' look at something like this one way. He/she looking at the scene the way it is, he/she doesn't care if there is more meaning in it. He/she says ''Lois Lane was completely useless'' but doesn't know what emotion is. I mean If Lois Lane wasn't there to be saved then there wouldn't be any big emotion in Superman's death. He/she already down to criticize the movie. He/she says ''there were a lot of characters, there is no focus on one thing'' and criticises away. But when He/she comes for the ''Infinity War'' review He/she says ''This is probably the best, if not second best, movie in the MCU'' and declares it's a fresh movie. Some of these (Rotten Tomatoes) critics criticizing movies that in-depth because of the stuff they couldn't comprehend; and praise the simple, colorful ones because it's more convenient is a little bit hypocritical, wouldn't you say?

Other than that critic, another critic says that characters' tone wasn't right. Like, really? Who are you to make a comment like this? Just because you're entitled doesn't mean you're right. How can he decides which characters' tone is right and which ones are not. He has only opinions, nothing else - nothing to prove what he's saying. It's sad that criticism come to this. And it's more sad that a lot of people doing this. They say that this movie poorly executed but they can't say why. How did it poorly executed? Why can't i see this? Every scene in this movie connects perfectly with each other.

I have watched this movie too many times, please don't just entitle it with ''boring'' A lot of people weren't ready for this kind of a superhero movie. They expected something simple - something more colorful - something like Marvel/Disney type of movie. Some people thought this movie rushed, but, again, they expected something Marvel already has done.

This movie at 6.6 with 537.654 votes right now, i hope one day it will see 8.0 rating again. I hope in time people will appreciate this movie.

It's kinda sad to see movies that are mindless and the kind of basic and lowest common denominator are making a lot of money, while emotional and challenging movies like BvS underperforms despite being more inspirational because they trigger a feeling that too many other Hollywood blockbusters aren't willing or able to reach.
