This is the only special feature(the menu even has it in singular, not plural. Somebody had a sense of humor in designing that) found on the DVD of Batman V Superman(wait, is it a fight or a court battle?): Dawn(a word that doesn't need to be used in titles anywhere near as much as it is) of Justice(get it? Because we're threatening, sorry, promising, we'll get to a certain well-known League, no matter how ill-advised), or at least my library's copy of it. For comparison, the first three Hunger Games ones come with commentary tracks and lots of other material.
It's made up of clips of the film, voice-over analysis(why? It's not like we needed the play-by-play) and animated visuals. Ignore the "as himself" listings. They don't appear in this outside of the footage we've already seen, and certainly not out-of-character. Why isn't the narrator credited? Did he ask not to? The running time is 5 minutes. I'm not sure the subject needed its own documentary. While it's what we were promised, a huge part of why it attracted so many viewers, and certainly has stand-out moments, we were all really let down by it. Seems like an exploration of the philosophical themes weaved into it, the story structure, the overload of hinted content... well, I suppose an apology for those would be better. And Snyder gets immensely defensive before he admits he's wrong. If shooting Jimmy Olsen in the face without even making sure anyone knew that's who he was... but I digress.
I recommend this only to the biggest fans. 3/10
