It was like watching the most well-funded fan film ever produced. Lots of nods to the original, but no real budget to really make it a complete remake. The acting was weak and made the story hard to buy. There was a lot of telling instead of showing. It was still entertaining, but it falls apart with any scrutiny.
The fifth entry in the "DCEU" is a narrative sequel to movies with a darker and despondent tone. This film has a tonal shift away from those films and finds itself more in line with Wonder Woman than Man of Steel or Batman v Superman. The shift in mood towards a more hopeful world is welcome, but the story baggage this movie has going into it weighs it down.
In the end, it is a fun movie if you don't…
