    While it seems many of you can't wait to "make up your own mind", I for one can wait for Civil War and Apocalpyse.

    I didn't get much out of that article other than grim, gritty, and dark.

    Is the spoiler embargo still on?

    Yeah, I'm not gonna base an actor's entire performance off of 10 seconds in a trailer. Also, have you seen the Superman movies from the 70s? Gene Hackman was many peoples' definitive Luthor and he certainly hammed it up. And I honestly thought Eisenberg seemed fine in the trailers. That seems exactly like Lex: attempt to be charming to someone's face in public, but behind closed doors is another story.

    So count me in the Disagree pile, because I thought Dawn Of Justice was amazing.

    Yes I made an account just to post this, because I found this review completely biased and untrue.
    Hell yeah brother.
    Saw the movie , it was great and personally itīs really boring to continue to read the same "too gritty" comment , especially from such a wonderful and imaginative site like this one ( although you canīt expect that from the people they hire to make reviews) .
    Itīs not an "Oscar movie"? NO!! Itīs entertaining and tries to be faithful to the comics ( those comic "versions" the director chose to use in his view of the world) and leaves you feeling that 150 minutes passed thru in a hurry? YES!!
    And most important (to me ), should people wait to make their own opinions instead of going around reading every so called "Critic" ? HELL YES!!
    ( i just read this one because iīm a long time reader of this site , and was so appalled by the biased and untrue point of view of it , that i had to make a first reply ....and sorry for any english mistake in my text )

But this guy just....doesn't give anything for the reader to latch onto.
    To be fair they did. The reviewer didn't like the pacing, characterization, or tone of the movie.

    Interestingly, the Daily Telegraph's Robbie Collin gives Dawn of Justice an excorciatingly terrible review, but also puts in a throwaway line about Zack Snyder's "superb Man of Steel", so I guess it's not the case that if you liked one you would necessarily like - or dislike - the other.

    It's not, therefore, likely to be just a giant conspiracy of Marvel-lovers and everyone who hates "dark and gritty". WB are a huge studio and they've pumped vast quantities of money into the marketing and making of this film. We don't need to get outraged on their behalf and throw bitter aspersions at every negative review.

    For my part, I haven't seen it, so I guess I'll make up my own mind I've liked some films with poor reviews before, and detested some films with good reviews.

    Then why the Oscar-baits have such horrible box offices most of the time ?.

    Its more so that I don't really see the inferential or logical jumps the writer seems to want me to make. Firstly, he says that its too gritty to be fun and too grim to be thrilling. I don't think those things are diametrically opposed. Its possible for something to be gritty and fun at the same time.

    He also says that its not clear why Lex hates Superman, but...can anyone here really say why Obadiah Stane's motivation for hating Tony Stark was not in itself kind of shallow? Or the same for Ultron's contempt for the Avengers?

    Additionally, if Luthor hams it up as Lex (a character who seems like being hammy is at least in his wheelhouse), then why did they not raise the same objection to the way that Ultron was portrayed in the MCU? Marvel took a character who is supposed to be an android who has no understanding or grasp of what its like to be human and....turned him into a wisecracking, funny-times super villain? Um...that seems counterintuitive.

    It just seems that this site is MORE than willing to ignore things that Marvel does, but when DC commits similar sins, they get called out for it.

    At the end of the day, the movie is poised to make good money, so the studio will be happy.

    A review is an opinion. Just because you disagree with it, does not invalidate it unless the reviewer is being completely unreasonable which CBR is not.

    Also, it's not the only site that is giving the movie a negative review. There are plenty of other sites who agree with CBR, so it's not really fair to call CBR biased either.

    Personally, I was always way more excited for Suicide Squad, but I will make up my own mind after I see BvS. I also believe that although divisive, the movie will end up with a good amount of positive reactions and reviews.

    That said, maybe it's time to give Zack Snyder a break from the DCEU... Just saying...

    Probably too many para-demons got killed for his taste.

    I thought MOS was fine (not great but decent enough). To each his own I guess but don't act like your opinion is an indisputable fact.

    Ignore what ?, Iron Man 3 ?, Thor 2 ?, Age of Ultron ?, those movies were much better than Man of Steel.

    Well in terms of critical acclaim he's right those magazines do hold more weight.
