Defending Zack Snyder
No matter who’s behind the camera, these days most superhero films are more the vision of studio committees than filmmakers.... And then there’s Zack Snyder. His much-maligned Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may not be great IP management, but it is the result of a director using a nine-digit budget to make a film that nobody else would have made, and in that sense it’s fascinating."
...The film really sings when Affleck’s Bruce is its focus. The Ultimate Edition (a longer, proto-Snyder Cut, some might say, that teases out certain story beats and generally plays much better than the theatrical release) gives him a far more compelling and fleshed-out mystery to solve and it’s a blast to watch the World’s Greatest Detective actually do some, you know, detecting.
