When I first heard about (saw the previews for) this movie, I thought the premise was depressing and oafish. Now I'm hearing that the execution of this movie is depressing and oafish. Prayerfully I'll never see it.

It's okay. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. Justice League will never rival Marvel's The Avengers. I don't care for Synder's character interpretation and it has always been his weak point. Batman is more dark and ominous while Synder tries to portray him as a vigilante killing psycho. Superman is aloof. Jesse Eisenberg is a total miscast for Lex Luthor. The fight scene with Doomsday was subpar as your typical Hollywood version. It will be interesting how Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, and Ezra Miller as The Flash will be developed. According to the articles Synder will make them more badass then in the comics.

I only made it through maybe half of "Man of Steel", which made this latest "Batman vs Superman" movie very unappealing to me. This won't even be a RedBox rental for me. This poll should've had the option, "Uninterested, Won't Go See".

I have too say I could care less if I ever see this. I hate this kind of thing. Its like we cant think of anything so lets make this.
I could just hear the pitch now. Hey, man I wonder if mighty mouse could take on super man. NO WAY he is just a mouse!! OK, then I wonder if he could take on Under dog?? No way Man, he is just a dog..... OK I got it maybe superman could beat up Batman??? Hey cool that guy is a MAN and a BAT. Lets go with that. But...... Superman is ... well, super. And batman is just a guy with cool gadgets. BUT HE"S A BAT!!!!!!!!
So I will pass on this. Besides watching These guys on TV as a kid I would rather remember them as they were. It's better that way.

I cannot recommend this movie at all, it was poorly put together, every aspect of BVS movie was all over the place with pointless exposition and unnecessary sub plots. If that wasn't enough to ruin this movie, they pretty much destroyed batman for rest the series, in this iteration he was crazed vigilante, who apparently can not think rationally and resorts to extreme violence and murder where he sees fit. So yes in the new DC Universe that warner bro's have brought us, both batman and superman are murderers, well damn. Seriously had this another year or two of pre-production this movie might have been amazing, but instead we got this terrible confusing mess a movie that will unfortunately spawn several more. I could go into detail why so much of this movie doesn't work, but whats the point it will still make a boatload of money and there are still going to be sequels for me to shake my head at. I just hope that Warner & DC recognize the many errors they made in this movie, especially with all the negative feedback and don't deliver us another sh** sandwich with the JLA movie.
I thought it was slow in some spots. Before I went to see it, I thought that Batman and Superman are too big for one movie and that that the time to develop the plot, an intriguing story, special effects and all that wouldn't satisfy either Superman or Batman fans.
I did see a a few seconds of one of my previous professions - Nuclear C2. Of course hollywood got it wrong but then how would they know.
Also to add - maybe they should have done this in Part 1 and Part 2 like the last two hunger games. Of course they'll be another but parts 1 and 2 is a different approach then just another release.

I saw it on Imax with the family last night. I enjoyed it. There were nits to pick, but I was just expecting to be entertained and I really enjoyed it. Wonder Woman was treated in a really interesting way, the action was good and the surround used to good effect.
I am not sure I will buy it or watch it again, but it was a fun Imax movie.
