    Watched it tonight and it is worth the price of admission. Good B+ film, you can see the difference between Snyder and Whedon.

    The overwhelming majority of reviews disagree with you. 40% on Rotten Tomatoes (though I see 85% among the audience). I'll wait for video.

    Rather than having the right script, cast and director they think that as long as Superman is there it should make a billion

    Don't regret my purchase. Unlike the immediate WTF moment walking out of BvS.

    DC Universe has made some bad movies while Marvel seems to be kicking ass with no sign of slowing down.

    How can you have Batman, Flash, Green Lantern and Superman and screw that up?

    The Marvel Universe has been kicking DC’s butt for 60+ years. Just way more interesting characters and plot lines.

    Green Lantern is a dorky & confused comic. Superman is iconic but it always comes down to kryptonite. But they’ve done a great job with Wonder Woman.

    2 of my sons - 21 & 25 - saw it. One liked it ok the other didn’t at all. Both are big comic film lovers. I’ll wait for DVD or HBO.

    Not to mention Wonder Woman one of my favorites. I like the animated Justice league Unlimited, it has some mature themes as well as super folks.

    Roulette restarts Metabrawl, this time with an all-female fight card ("Glamour Slam") made up of mind-controlled Justice Leaguers. First, the Huntress and Black Canary are set against Vixen and Hawkgirl, and then the four must contend against Wonder Woman.[citation needed]

    Note: The story takes place in the city of Blüdhaven.

    Guess who wins and what happens when the mind control gets destroyed. Lots of great stuff in JLU.

    That was a great show. That whole universe was good starting back with Batman the animated series and is still throwing an occasional Movie into it on dvd.

    Because they’re idiots. They try to rely on CGI and less on story.

    Obviously the Christian Bale Batman Is on its own level. But other than Man of Steel, every DC movies since the first superman has sucked.

    And they almost screwed that one up with the weak casting of Lois Lane.

    Amy Adams has that ...maybe it is but maybe not appeal of Margot Kidder in the 70's..she is not what I have reservations against.

    I saw that again the other day. Most of those are really good. The Batman Harley Quinn one that is recent is pretty funny.

    I haven't seen Wonder Woman or The Justice League, but the other movies have been garbage... other than Suicide Squad, which does have some enjoyable moments due to the characters, and the really nice soundtrack. Man of Steel was boring as fck, what the fck was up with the CGI flying dog at the beginning. BvS was a mess, just a mess.

    I liked the story of Man of Steel. But it was a little retarded with all the CGI.

    I thought suicide squad was utter garbage. Although the chick was nice to look at.

    BvS was definitely a mess. I haven’t seen wonder woman or justice league either.

    Fitting payback for making me sit through terrible Superman and Batman movies in my youth. Superbad sequels made the first two entries in each franchise look good, but trust me they are not. I dare you to rewatch them. Even as a kid I knew there was something wrong when Superman could reverse time by flying around the Earth really fast or when the Joker led his henchmen in a dance routine.

    I'm not saying they're great but the current crop of DC films are far better than the ones from the 70s through 90s. Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and the bulk of Marvel films have spoiled us.

    Looks like this franchise is in trouble. It’s being labeled a bomb and rumor is that Batfleck is gonna be gone from it.
