Most straight forward and concise review yet!

I've seen it twice already, will most likely see it again on Black Friday while waiting for the stores to clear out from the Parademon hordes early in the morning.

If all it takes for a movie to be good is to include characters you like, that's a pretty low standard.

Weak, one-dimensional characterization; way too much exposition; atrocious dialogue; clumsy pacing; Ben Affleck; generic uninteresting villain; trying to squeeze too much into too little time; super sappy ending.

I really have to wonder that given all the villains at DC's disposal, why they went with Steppenwolf. The Avengers got Loki, Ultron, and next up is Thanos, all major major villains. The DCEU, which needs a hit with Justice League goes for C-list Steppenwolf?

One could say this about ANY superhero/comicbook movie.

I disagree with this entire paragraph. One could easily say the same about other movies.

That's exactly my point. This is your standard we're talking about. For example, I like Batman, but I certainly don't like any movie just because Batman is in it. Those Joel Schumacher Batmans were terrible and so was Suicide Squad.

Yeah, a lot of movies suffer from that description and those are bad movies too. So if you disagree with me on, say, Steppenwolf, tell me what makes him a non-generic and interesting villain?

Yay indeed. If you liked that movie, you'll like this pic even more.

I imagine it will keep you captivated for hours.

I'll have a full review with more thoughts and rebuttals to others in a couple days, but frankly I've just been walking around yelling

YAY!

A lot myself.


YAY!

The problem that DCEU is having is that they are rushing their movies trying to keep up with Marvel, well news flash guys you can't. Marvel spent years developing their characters before they got to a Avengers movie. DC is going to have to do the same thing. Why in the world does the team start with Steppenwolf when DC has a ton of villains to pick from before you get to a heavy hitter like Darkseid . Impatience can spell doom for DC.
