I saw it on HBO max. I didn’t like it much. Too little action. Also there were many boring and uninteresting parts that dragged on too long. Very cheesy and ending was anti climactic. I will give it 2 out of 5.
Agreed. DC should just bow out for 5 or 10 years and attempt to reboot the whole thing, or not. I think we are entering a post-superhero period in movies. They had a good 20-year run, same as most other genres.
I saw it and it requires a higher suspension of disbelief than most superhero movies, which is saying a lot. The story is ridiculous, the villain is kind of dumb, and his motivation/end game is nonexistent. But I could watch Gal Gadot literally all day. Two thumbs up.
I’m somehow getting it free through my cable provider login even though I don’t have a TV package.
So I recommend everyone try to log in first using your internet and/or phone or accounts since they’ve clearly lost control over who is supposed to get promotional access. We’ve seen this “fluke” happen before with new services that would rather have inflated user numbers than actual income just yet.
That said, I’ve used it for next to nothing. I was already caught up on anything HBO that interests me.
The marvel films were planned out years in advance, with a fairly consistent tones. Some lean a little more comedic, like GOTG and Ant-Man, compared to the more drama centric nature of the Captain America and Avengers films.
But there is a consistent tone between the films. Not too dramatic, not too comedic. The story is consistent and isn’t filled with plot wholes. They built their characters over time.
DC was correct in going for a darker tone to help differentiate their films from Marvel’s. But the consistency wasn’t there. Every film has felt like it was in its own pocket universe. There was no build up for the characters. They literally threw The Flash and Cyborg into the Justice League with no character origin story or development.
When the darker stories didn’t meet expectations, they pivoted hard to the comedic. And that doesn’t work. You can’t build a universe built on the gritty nature of the Nolan Batman films and then suddenly pull a 180.
They need to scrap the whole project and reboot. After about five years of waiting.
