Cruel and Unusual Films
Siegel and Joe Shuster
Originally premiered in its theatrical cut in 2016, BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE remains as starkly divisive among fans of DC's two titular protagonists that were the main centre of this movie. Those who are displeased with the film of its darker tone and characterisation should have had the balance of some lightheartedness as opposed to others that liked its brutal and gritty nature. I thought this would be a mild disaster for both director Zack Snyder and the DC expanded universe which he helped to create in trying to face the shadow of Marvel. It turns out that in the film's history, it was severely compromised by the studio who insisted on having a faster-paced cut and trimmed 31 minutes of the picture. As the result, the final product has received a negative backlash and Snyder himself took the blame of its reception.
Now the ULTIMATE EDITION of BATMAN V SUPERMAN is promising and might make up to those who were greatly disappointed of the final version. Unfortunately this edition is out on Blu-ray and it's recommended to those who have waited for a long time for this movie.
Star rating: (7/10) Good Movie
