Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Ultimate Edition Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD UltraViolet Combo Pack.
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
Despite being sourced from a 4K digital intermediate, Warner's HEVC /H.265/2160p UHD disc won't immediately blow viewers out of their seats with its superior resolution, largely because BvS is such a visually kinetic film that the camera rarely pauses long enough for anyone to assess the improved detail—but it's there. Combined with judicious HDR encoding that subtly enhances brightness and contrast, the UHD treatment of BvS amplifies the impact of director Zack Snyder's crowded frames, even as the action rushes forward. Take, for example, the scene, where Batman and Superman first confront each other standing atop the Batmobile, with bright flames to the right and a blue lens flare bisecting the frame horizontally. In the UHD presentation, the key elements of the tableau stand out more distinctly against the nighttime background, namely, the two superheroes confronting one another, each under the mistaken belief that the other one is a menace.
Indeed, the entire sequence leading up to that moment demonstrates the UHD image's superiority, beginning with the aerial shot that finds Batman poised above the pier where a ship smuggling kryptonite has docked. As the camera swirls and zooms from above, the folds of Batman's cape blowing in the wind are more defined on UHD.
The ensuing pursuit in the Batmobile—an elaborate combination of practical stunts and CG elements—feels more visceral and immediate, because, even with the rapid-fire editing, all of the critical elements in the frame have more presence and finer definition, including Batman and his vehicle, the truck carrying the kryptonite, and the various additional vehicles and weapons deployed by Luthor's minions against their pursuer. (For a clear example of superior resolution, look at the beard stubble on Batman's face in the undercranked closeup where he first drives past Superman. On the regular Blu-ray, it's facial coloration, but on the UHD, you can see individual whiskers.)

For me, the biggest problem in the film is Alexander Luthor’s motivation or lack thereof. He attempts to frame Superman, tries to import a substance capable of killing Superman and works hard to engineer a fight between Superman and Batman. He even blows up the Capitol building presumably killing much of Congress. The question is why? It’s not like the comics haven’t explored the hatred Luthor has for Superman but it was like the filmmakers decided to leave Luthor’s motivation to the viewers. This is a major problem and entirely avoidable. His rambling about devils coming from the sky does not fix the problem. Then we have some smaller plot issues. Luthor’s framing of Superman for murder was absurd since the people were killed with bullets. The extended version goes much deeper into this plot point which is one reason I prefer the theatrical release. Also, why did Diana Prince steal the data file from Lex? I guess she wanted the photo of her old bf but why give it back to Bruce Wayne? Was it because she failed to decrypt it and wanted Bruce to do it and then give it back to her?
I consider the first two Christopher Nolan films to be the gold standard of superhero films. The third film was very good but had some serious plot issues. The difference between Nolan and Zack Snyder is that Nolan makes a lot less mistakes. Snyder loves to swing for the fences and take huge chances (I do realize that Snyder is not actually the writer). I thought the scene of Superman standing in the swirling maelstrom that was the Capitol Building was brilliant. This one is kind of blunted by the fact that there was no reason for Luthor to blow up the Capitol building unless he thought it would somehow be blamed on Superman and the extended version actually goes in that route. Ugh. I also felt chills at the ‘You’re letting them kill Martha…’ even though a lot of people mock it. I am a long time comic fan and it never occurred to me that the mothers of Clark and Bruce share the same first name. It was also an amazing way for Bruce to suddenly humanize the Godlike Superman like a thunderbolt to the brain.
Perhaps my favorite fight in the history of superhero movies was Batman vs. Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. No obvious CGI, no music, just two combatants in brutal combat. Nolan kept it simple while Snyder always likes to go over the top and somehow almost always manages to get a facepalm moment in his action scenes. Why does Superman TWICE allow himself to be caught by Batman’s Kryptonite gas? Then there is that ridiculous part where Batman ties a cable around Superman’s feet and begins swinging him around. For me, there were a bunch of awesome memorable moments and more than a couple of *DOH* moments in the movie. I would rather have a film with great moments that stick in my brain and a few clunkers than one that is just consistently good. I like directors that take chances unless they produce a true trainwreck (which a lot of people claim Batman v Superman is).
The other big problem is the dark Zack Snyder tone and you either like it or you don’t. If you don’t like it you probably don’t like Zack Snyder films and there isn’t much WB can do about that except change directors. I’m cool with the tone and when the producers try to slip in some corny jokes that don’t mesh with Snyders vision they seem out of place. I was able to overlook many of the films flaws because there was enough stuff that I really liked and I could probably list at least a dozen spine tingling moments. I have no doubt that the people who hate this film are entirely sincere and it most certainly is a film with room for improvement. It’s just that in my final mental calculation I found more good than bad and when the film is good it’s often exceptional.
I watched the Man of Steel and BVS with my 13 niece and 12 year old nephew, and witness them experience the same excitement and emotions that my brother and I did when we watched Christopher Reeves as Superman and Michael Keaton as Batman. And I, myself enjoyed this movie A LOT. That's really all you can ask for in a movie....to take you places...to take you on a journey. Some like where it goes and some don't.
And I'm not a Ben Affleck fan but I totally accepted him as Batman. Christian Bale was better but Ben was great in his own right. Henry to me is perfection as Superman. I hope they do more with Henry as Superman and Ben as Batman. And I'm really looking forward to Wonder Woman and Aqua Man movies.
I heard and read the negative reviews before seeing this movie but I knew to yawn and ignore them. I saw the movie anyway, and loved it. As soon as this movie was released for sale, I bought it. I'm a Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime member, so I have access to plenty of movies. I only buy movies I love.....Still just see the movie for yourself. Don't let the bias critics and the whining comic book lovers stop you from taking a chance on this movie. Make your own opinion.
Jut remember it's all make believe and simply for your entertainment.
