Reece Anweiler’s review published on Letterboxd:
The first 40+ minutes of this movie are so terribly paced that it feels not like the opening of a movie, but rather a "previously on the DC universe" that's meant to make up for 3 movies worth of backstory. Literally every cut of every shot feels as if it was cut in half to lower the runtime. No moment gets a chance to just set. No emotions get a chance to be felt.
This, combined with what felt like 20 different music queues (again, in about 40 minutes) have me a headache and left a sour taste in my mouth for the second part of the movie.
There is so much wrong with this movie. So much that angered me. So much that annoyed me. And so much that left me completely confused. I was hoping beyond hope that the critics over-reacted with the reviews. That it was going to be a really fun time. But in the end, it's just another disappointment from DC that I will probably never watch again.
