Storyline

The general public is concerned over having Superman on their planet and letting the "Dark Knight" - Batman - pursue the streets of Gotham.

Meanwhile, Superman tries to settle on a decision, and Lex Luthor, the criminal mastermind and millionaire, tries to use his own advantages to fight the "Man of Steel". Written by Mine Turtle

Trivia

Goofs

When Batman removes his mask in the cave after the Batmobile chase, his eye make-up is gone. Similarly after Superman removes Batman's mask in the Knightmare scene the eye make-up is also not present. However, eye make-up has always been used to make Batman's eyes look dark in film adaptations since Batman (1989) to make the costume look like it is in the comics and have never shown Bruce Wayne actually wearing the make-up after he takes the mask off.

Quotes

[first lines]
Batman: There was a time above... a time before... there were perfect things... diamond absolutes. But things fall... things on earth. And what falls... is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie.

Awesome
4 April 2018 | by ahmadkeSee all my reviews

First off let me say this film is far from perfect. The overall mood is way too dark for a Superman movie, the blasphemy scattered throughout seemed way too forced and the film does seem unevenly paced at times. That being said, BvS is still an awesome superhero movie; way cooler than all of the lame films marvel made over the years which just happened to get such high ratings here on IMDB, (except for maybe Thor Ragnarok, Ironman and a few others which are actually pretty cool). Batman vs Superman is in fact a real spectacle, a real showdown worthy of the most loved superheroes of our time. Zack Snyder does a great job making everything look great which to me is the most important aspect in a movie like this. Superman and Batman are awesome icons and they deserve to be presented in an awesome way.This film achieves that. Disregard the haters, this is a great film.
