You're cherry-picking. The IMDB rating is for the Ultimate Edition, which those who already like it bought into it. And that's 35K reviews. The general audience review of the original movie was 686K reviewers and gave it a 6.4.

The Metacritic audience score only has 7K reviewers. A drop in the bucket compared to the 686K of IMDB for the original cut.

Also, look at the critics' score...

The Cinescore, which is a scientific sampling of the audience on the opening weekend gave it a B, which is pretty low score for a genre film. Usually, the opening weekend audience is on board with the genre and franchise. The audience for BvS, not so much.

The B.O. fell 68% it's second week. That's not good word of mouth going on there.

And not to mention this:

Critics hated it. The audience was mixed. It was not greatly appreciated by the general audience. It's no masterpiece.

Critics are awful. Who trusts them.

It's a case where you have lesser versions of films. Judge them on the better versions. Not studio interfered ones.

So finally got around to watching the batman. Got through around 30 minutes of it and I was done. That was the most boring thing I have watched in a long time. The first like 10 minutes, I think I cringed every time batman talked. I don't know, maybe this is one of those movies that really picks up at some point, but just can't do another 2 hours of this one.

You didn't like his crappy version of Rorshachs narration from Watchmen? What you missed is the film then forgets it's doing that and then remembers at the end.

Yea it's a snooze fest at time. I fell asleep multiple times. It would have been a lot better if they chopped 40min off it.

Might be wishful thinking, but Black Adam looks far better than any of the Superman and most of the Batman films to date (I do have a soft spot in my Black heart for Bane though). Maybe its because they thrashed these two Tropians over our heads for far too many decades and they are just tiresome by now ? Superman goes on holiday, Batman vs the latest DSM V category, etc.
