In my opinion, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) is worth watching, just not to the end. Kyle Smith is right about its being rather sophisticated, but typically it gets boring too, and befuddling.
On the other hand, the cast is good while production design and cinematography communicate beautifully. Plus there is some genuine sensuality as Lois Lane (Amy Adams) sits naked, without any of her privates showing, in a bathtub.
A bevy of real-life liberals, including Patrick Leahy and Democratic Congresswoman Holly Hunter, is hauled in for further fun and games. A subcommittee hearing regarding Superman (Henry Cavill) is held, and it seems fitting that liberal senators are discussing the excesses of a comic-book figure.
