Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Zack Snyder's follow up to 2013's Man of Steel with Henry Cavill returning as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White. Krypton's finest will face off against Batman - played by Ben Affleck. When the heroes aren't squaring off against one another, they'll have to deal with with the villainous Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).

Set eighteen months after the events of Man of Steel, the story takes its inspiration from a variety of sources (including Frank Miller's comic book miniseries The Dark Knight Returns). This will be the first time DC Comics' two biggest stars meet on the cinema screen.

As a pure visual spectacle, however, Batman V Superman ably blows the hinges off the multiplex doors...

Goosebumps are inevitable when the two icons finally face off, and there are some spectacular clobberings dispensed...

No major blockbuster in years has been this incoherently structured, this seemingly uninterested in telling a story with clarity and purpose.

Not only does the storytelling feel cluttered, but the premise turns both protagonists into passive victims who only occasionally get to do anything heroic.

The film may be imposing, but it's not fun.

Delivers the shock and awe on a level befitting a superhero blockbuster of such massive scale.

Cluttered and narratively wonky; a few jokes wouldn't have gone amiss, either.

Although with too many story-lines at play & its fast-paced plot, its dark, action-packed and enjoyable.

This is tough. The first act was really, really good. Surprisingly good with the level of grittiness based in reality that we saw in Nolan's Batman trilogy. Ben Aflfeck is a brilliant Bruce Wayne, damaged and brooding and there is the hint of something going on beneath the thread of the story. But the film is ultimately let down by the last act resorting...

Yeah, I see what people are saying about disjointed, especially with the dream sequence, but I really enjoyed it. I love a good super-hero movie, and this didn't disappoint. Batman was surprisingly good, Superman was comic-book hammy and Lex Luthor was orchestra-tastic. Fun times!

Despite the bad reviews from critics, I enjoyed this movie. I was a fan of the comics when I was a kid, but never got into the graphic novels - which Snyder uses as his base - so there were bits I didn't understand but I was happy to let all just wash over me and go with it. Sure, there are plenty of clumsy bits in the film but it still has plenty of action...

Good movie, I enjoyed, it was quite dark... I didnt understand why superman and batman had to fight and I look forward to the franchise. Luckily i have a colleague who is familiar with the comics so he was able to confirm Superman is meant to die.

Batman v Superman blew me out of the water. After cringing through the entire Man of Steel I didn't have high hopes for Batman V Superman, oh how I was wrong. Afflecks' take on Batman is different from Nolans - he is darker and edgier and his Alfred is less mild more wild.

I'm so sick of uneducated people talking bad about this movie either because they don't understand the deeper meaning of some of the important scenes, or because this movie doesn't follow the Marvel structure of light and fun. Read some comics and educate yourselves before you write anything about this movie. This is one of, if not the most accurate comic...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice IS a movie that tells you there will be a battle between the two. SO there is a set up for sure when you view and pay attention to all the clues this film gives. There is a lot of information here and if you are open-minded you will not have all the answers now, but know they will be explained in the Justice League...
