"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 "criticized" this movie because Luthor was crazy, Batman kills, long of a movie, Martha scene, Jimmy Olsen died and the rest goes to nitpick mode. If you reading this from the future, you're not among those people. Hell, you probably don't even know who Jimmy Olsen is. Those people don't want to see the big picture. 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
It's a shame most of these elements went straight over people's heads. Because they didn't like these version of characters, 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 it a chance to rewatch it. Average viewers probably bored by the dialogues. But the dialogues were the most important thing in this movie. They didn't care about them, so they decided to hate the movie and call it boring. Professional critics didn't like the movie because... Yeah why? Maybe because they expected the sun to come out. Maybe because they expected something light, or funny, or casual. 'Cause clearly today's blockbuster movies needs to be all about these materials for the critics. But just because a movie didn't follow the procedure doesn't mean it's bad. Just because a movie doesn't contain "act 1" or "act 2" parts doesn't mean it's bad. Just because a movie is dark doesn't mean it's bad. Maybe those critics haven't seen 'Schindler's List' yet. Or maybe they've seen it and now they're being hypocritical by saying that this movie is too dark
I can understand some of you guys saying ''it was a mess''. You're right, the theatrical cut was a mess but the Extended Cut is actually created a cohesive film even though its story hasn't completed yet. But still, 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" 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
-Actually, the whole movie was building up for ''Martha'' scene. Batman's dream, the one that had bad CGI. Batman's brand, his new rule. Batman's past. It all for that scene.
'Why Lex want to kill Superman'
Because of what he represented. 'The man in the sky' didn't save Luthor from his father in his childhood, so it was at that point where he believed that God was not real, so when Superman, a god-like being shows up, this angered Lex to the point where he tried to demonized Superman and show the world how he sees Superman as much as he could before kills him.
'Superman has no remorse for the destruction he caused in the first movie.'
-You can't know that because this movie tells about events that happened 2 years after the first movie.
-Also, Superman's destruction was needed for the story. If Superman didn't cause that destruction or didn't kill someone, Batman wouldn't go against him.
'Thousands are probably killed, but Superman only saves Lois Lane'
-Because she is Superman's world. He also didn't save those people where Luthor's henchmen burned after killing them.
'Superman threatens Batman that he can easily kill Batman, twice.'
-What should he do to warn him then?
-This Superman is a whole new take on. He's not Superman that you know of from the comics.
'Batman STEALING from Lex Luthor so HE gets to exact revenge on Superman'
-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. There is more behind his story. His and movie's story haven't completed yet. We haven't told much
-That dream wasn't a dream actually. It was a different timeline where Superman turned evil
-It's really sad that some people define Batman off of one aspect and act like if Batman kills someone "he'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
'Why Wonder Woman joined the last fight. She didn't save the world from Hitler before, why now?'
Because of the emails sent by Batman.
'Luthor comes up with the idea that since the ship has a biometric security, he can use Zod's body to gain access. It did not cross anyone else's mind'
-Why would cross someone else's mind that kind of thing?
'There is no villain to solve in the story'
-There's always two kinds of villain; 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. 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
'The all powerful Kryptonian key has no security'
-Why would it need security?
'Kryptonians have banned the technology to create Doomsday. It's so dangerous, they decide not to remove it'
-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 Snyder can once again have a city-leveling battle.'
-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''
'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 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 movie in the MCU" and declares it's a fresh movie
Other than that critic, another critic says that the 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. He has only opinions, nothing else - nothing to prove what he's saying.
Some of these critics criticizing those movies that don't follow the procedure is a little hypocritical, wouldn't you say? Considering every time a movie is cliched and colorful, they write a puff piece editorial about how original and perfect it was
Some people say this movie rushed, but the only reason they're saying this is because Marvel has already done something similar to this. If this movie came out in 2008, they wouldn't say something like that
Some people think that "entertainment" is what makes a movie great. Those people are probably a hypocrite, or they haven't seen a lot of movies other than Disney's. One can like a movie and still discuss flaws, dislike a movie and discuss strengths, or find a movie to be over/under rated but that doesn't necessarily mean you love/hate it.
Was this movie perfect? Of course not. But it never deserved a criticism like this, either.
