Snyder’s Justice League: 1 step forward

Army of the Dead: 3 steps back

Props for the cool story—a silly but promising first hour of setup—but it crumbles under the weight of poor writing. It can be exhilarating as hell, but nothing ruins an experience more than dumb characters with baffling motivations making stupid decisions.

Snyder still nails the action, and Dave Bautista acts like a Golden Globe is on the line, but the rest is a complete mess. Also, what’s up with the blurry cam? Makes me miss the excessive Snyder slo-mo.
