It had been too long since I saw it without commercials and whatever further editing so I finally broke down and bought BvS.
The ultimate edition is way better. Way better. It is to me what someone on here called the Donner cut of Superman 2. It is a far more complete version of the story. They over did it when they toned down the violence. Batman saving Martha is better. The desert scene makes so much more sense. The extra dialogue helps. It is so much more of a fluid story. Seeing him take that flame thrower to the people that he just slaughtered makes Luthor’s scheming more sensible since they’re trying to frame Superman. That half hour that they cut before really helps to flesh out the story to me. That’s why they should just tell the story without toning it down. This is also why they need to make these movies for the real fan base. Even though it’s just action and suspense with sci fi/horror imagination some people are just going to hate any layered comic fiction. Please ignore them. They are not the right target audience.
Especially with other movies including comic movies going 3 hours in length I think this should have been released as the only edition. Just my opinions.
P.S. It not supposed to take you back to West or Reeves portrayal of the characters. It’s not supposed to be for 5 and 7 year olds untill it is. Tell the story right. Like I say when we disagree over trunks or no trunks nothing about this will make us forget that it’s fiction so there is no need to slap us in the face with reminders. I still say except for Bane since they are not pro wrestlers they don’t need trunks on because it hurts suspension of disbelief that underwear in on the outside but that’s another issue. Let us suspend disbelief is the point. Help with that suspension. If this were real then how and why would he or she go about whatever it is that they are doing. Adding in science and human nature is helpful. Don’t confuse me with a "rightwinger but "that’s why I put up with the anti gun overtones and the politics even though it can be a bother at times. It still sells the story and is a bit inspirational to the imagination. Like I always remind people who hate on fiction we only have cell phones because the 60s version of Star Trek had communicators and that inspired real world invention.
