Yes, this version, which I call Batfleck, is old, paranoid, bitter, and has lost his humanity. In Alfred's few lines of dialog he even calls out Batfleck on it. Although poorly demonstrated by the film, I think he's supposedly regained some humanity by then end, as shown by his decision to not brand Luthor after all. So I'm not sure if we're meant to think that he's not going to kill again?

     Even if he doesn't, there's still a lot to answer for.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

This is a very good point, one that I missed when I was watching it.  Alfred chastizes Bruce, speaking about 'the rage that turns good men cruel'.  Something I had not picked up on was the reference to the Joker and to Robin, both of whom are absent from this movie.  A scene in the movie implies that the Joker killed Robin, which would go a long way to propel Bruce to become the angry vigilante he was.

Seeing a homicidal Batman who fights with a brutal rage and blows away 'bad guys' with little regard for collateral damage was something I had not expected to see.

Went to see this last night. Thought it was pretty enjoyable and couldn't really understand the level of vitriol aimed at it in a lot of reviews. Unless it was just because of Snyder & Affleck being connected to it. Anyway I liked it and Kristi (who generally dislikes movies that are dark), didn't dislike it as much as she thought she would (she only agreed to go see it with me because I'd went to see crap like Into The Woods with her and she owed me).

I do have to say though, I think Linda Carter was a better Wonder Woman though.

Thought it was alright...but what kinda surprised me was that I actually liked Affleck as Bruce Wayne. I was torn when they announced him as the new Dark Knight, but overall I really enjoyed him in the part and I'm looking forward to his solo-film that was recently announced.

Just returning from the movies, I really enjoyed it.

Is it anything at all like the comics?... Hmmm, I dont care, it was still good.

Affleck plays a great Batman.

Disclaimer... Not seen it yet...
However, if the Batman was drawn from the Dark Knight Returns/ All Star Batman and Robin model... He's a horrible person who has indeed lost all/most his humanity.    So maybe that explains the whole knuckles and killing bit.   

Still and all, I like my heros to be heroes in general. Frank Miller did me no favors.

Even The Dark Knight Returns Batman wasn't a killer. A crippler, perhaps, but not a killer.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
