I honestly feel like I should be more hyped about this film, because I'm a huge comic fan. It's just.... I'm not.

I saw it tonight. If there's anything I can say, it's that the critics are jerks. The movie was fine. Go in with reasonable expectations, and you'll probably enjoy it.

Hi everyone! First-time poster here ^_^ I also watched the movie tonight, and here are some of my current thoughts. While I have read some of the opinions of critics and don't necessarily agree with their scores, I did feel like Snyder had some missed opportunities in this first-of-its-kind hero-versus-god confrontation. I'll break down my current thoughts into bullet point form, for the sake of clarity:

7/10 for me

I think the actors did a great job but I just don't like Snyder's world vision. A helpless Superman, who can't do anything right or make a difference in the world, and a world that hates and fears him, just feels wrong. Snyder just doesn't get Superman.

Too many dream sequences and too much laying down foundation for future movies.

Over all not bad, but could have been better.

There was a moment that was funny and dumb where Lois gets rid of a weapon and then turns back to get it.

But overall it was a good movie, more akin to man of steel honestly but much better in regards to how they handled Batman and Wonderwoman, which I was skeptical of both their actors playing such characters but after seeing them in action in the film, they were both great.

Fight scenes were great as well. The movie really sets things up for Justice League. Has a darker tone to it though and at times can feel jumbled or not as narratively cohesive as what you would expect - which I can see why the critics were bagging on it so hard in that regard. Overall majority of the film acts as a sequel to Man of Steel.

I enjoyed it. Could it have been better? Yeah.

That's pretty much the same impression I had with the movie. I think it also could have been 15-20 minutes shorter, did we really need to see Bruce Wayne's parents die again? Also think they messed up on Doomsday, he looked a little off in this. On the other hand, I loved how they introduced Wonder Woman, the audience in fact applauded when she showed up. Some pretty good easter eggs too, like the Man-Bat cameo and references to the Joker and Darkseid. And one last thing

I feel that fans of DC comics, or at least know a bit about all the DC characters, are able to appreciate what they tried to show with BvS. It's not that accessible for general movie going audiences because of all the different easter eggs/foreshadowing for future movies.

Overall, it's good but not the greatest. Pacing and the "less is more" approach could have helped it.

It had its highpoints and some plot holes. I enjoyed it though.

Just saw it tonight in a empty theater

Enjoyed it pretty well, probably a bit more than Man of Steel; which I also enjoyed. I've always been a fan of Snyder films though.

One of my most disliked comic book movies of my lifetime

While I understand that DC Entertainment goes for a different style from Marvel entertainment this was just... Not good to me
