Critics trash it but the audience scores are much more positive, kinda like Suicide Squad last year. I don't care for super hero movies either way, be them Marvel or DC flicks, so I'll be skipping out on it regardless.
For those who have seen the film, how does it compare to BvS and Suicide Squad in your opinions?
The audience score is much more positive than SS.
To compare it to BvS and SS, I'll say this - I hated SS. I think it's absolute trash that I will never see again and rated it a 3/10 I think. BvS I liked but there are character flaws that I didn't and I didn't like the look of the movie - too dark, grim. I rated it a 5/10. In contrast, JL has a much nicer look, the action is pretty great. Seeing the characters interact was a joy. It felt like a comic book movie - fun and not overly serious but with the superheroes being very heroic and enough emotion where it's needed. I feel that all the characters had enough scenes to give them some depth and make them likeable. Yeah, the CG is off here and there but it's easy to not notice them. The callbacks to the fans are also very nice - the old Batman and Superman music especially. My only disappointment is that they did not show how badass and smart Batman is. Instead they showed how he's someone who's feeling guilty and sometimes out of his depth. I think Batman makes up for his lack of abilities by using his brain but this is not shown here.
8/10 for me and, as I said, the most fun movie I've seen this year. In contrast, I left BvS liking it but with some doubts because I knew these are not the characters that I wanted. Critics can fault the editing or plot but from a viewer perspective, the movie is what you want essentially. You can say the villain is weak with weak motivation but he fulfills his purpose - bring the league tomorrow and make the heroes look cool and badass. All those checkboxes are ticked here. There are also some nice moments of calm where the characters are interacting which I liked a lot. Like Barry and Cyborg and how they bond over both of them being accidents.
