Soo.. We finally got The Ultimate Edition of Zack Snyder’s “BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE”
Well.. This was interesting. I’ll try my best to keep this short.
Zack Snyder and WB/DC’s Ultimate Edition of BVS.. Is literally a big, giant, SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA!
It SHOULDA been edited like this!, It WOULDA made more sense! It COULDA been better! To me.. It’s just an apology to the fans.
THIS.. Is what we were “Supposed” to see in theaters, before the studio asked Snyder to trim it down more to a Two and half hour film. However.. Watching The Ultimate Cut brings to mind more.. Frustrations? I guess?! At least for me.. There are plenty of scenes in the UE, that should have been left in the theatrical cut. Mostly ALL of the scenes with Superman/Clark! His investigation into Batmans actions really helped flesh out Why he was so against what Batman was doing.. The Africa stuff.. Still didnt need to be in the movie/script at all.. But the added footage helped explain the Senate stuff, and the constant mopping of Superman, He tries to do good, but shit still went wrong. he was still questioned at every turn. And, it helped understand Batman’s Major mistrust of Superman.. Now it made sense!
There were still a Good amount of things in this version that REALLY did not need to be in the movie.
Jenna Malone was Useless! She should have been Batgirl! They completley waisted her and I’m glad she wasn’t in the original cut. There’s more Slow Motion shots ( thank you Zack). “Jimmy Olsen” has a broader role.. But still useless!
THE POSITIVES: More Superman was great to see! The “added” scenes helped explain and make things run more smoothly.. It makes it more watchable, kinda!
THE NEGATIVES: It’s the same film! With more! It doesn’t make it better.. It’s still the same poor choices made by the studio and the director. It highlighted the mistakes that was made in the first place. Why would they edit out the Superman parts at all?!? Who was in charge of the Editing in the very first place?
OVERALL: It’s worth watching to say the least. Just for the superman parts. Batman was the highlight of the theatrical cut.. Superman, was the highlight of the Ultimate Cut! It’s a shame that we have to see it in this fashion.. It should have been what we saw in the first place. But! It is.. A slightly better, more watchable movie.
I give “BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE- ULTIMATE EDITION!” a.. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟💫 8 1/2 out of 10! A whole half star more! Go get your hands on The Ultimate Cut and watch it!
Thats gonna do it for me.. Let me know if you’ve seen the UE and tell me your thoughts..
So, until next time folks… Peace Out!
