Verdict – 2/5

 

 

Pros –
1) DC establishing that Superman is indeed the strongest DC superhero
2) Aquaman playing “Jason Momoa” – rowdy, drunk and foul-mouthed
3) 2 hrs running time – not wasting time in the origin story of Cyborg and Flash.

 

 

Cons –
1) The resurrection of Superman is over-simplified.
2) Steppenwolf – generic run-of-the-mill supervillain trying to destroy the world.
3) DC needs to get rid of Zack Snyder. He’s worn out and got nothing new to offer in this genre.

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –

 

 

1) Knightmare sequence – though unexplained – is the best 5 minutes sequence of the movie.

3) Bat-mobile chase sequence

 
Cons –

 

 

1) Amalgamation of multiple story-lines (Death Of Superman / Man Who Falls / Dark Knight Returns)
2) Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor : most annoying character
3) Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth: huge miscast
