I'm starting to see some positive comments about the film elsewhere on the 'net, based on a partial screening in China. Fingers crossed.

From the previews I seen, the mere sight of Aquaman saying, "My Man!" is enough to make this a HBO viewing in August 2018.

But my wife's company is renting out a theatre next week for a private viewing, so I'm going for the freebies!

Nuff said.

Might be time for the "spoiler warnings" to be added!

Reviews so far are all over the place.  

And most legit movie critics seem to be "so-so" about it.

The most telling comment: "It seems like 5 different movies crammed into one."

A Justice League movie should be a EVENT.  But due to DC/WB's mishandling of their movies and planning (and Marvel making hit movies effortlessly these days)....JL seems more like an attempt to fix past mistakes......and catch up to the leader.  

My prediction: Thor Ragnarok will best JL in final box office numbers.

Reviews are about what I was expecting.  Maybe I can somehow avoid taking my son to see this one.  If not... I'll try to grin and bear it!

The movie hasn't even officially opened and the fanboys are raging about the less-than-stellar reviews. If thought and consideration were possible with these folks, they would realize that the mediocre to downright awful "DCEU/DCFU" attempts at universe-building have less to do with biased movie reviewers or deep Disney pockets and everything to do with greed and ineptitude. 

Apparently, an hour or two of footage was lopped-off from the finished movie, and the film suffers for it. I was going to see this at the (discount) matinee on Tuesday, but I think I will wait for the inevitable Extended Edition Blu, instead.

40% on Rotten Tomatoes, 48 on Metacritic.

Man of Steel type numbers so far.

Batman v. Superman - 27% on Rotten Tomatoes, 40 on Metacritic

So slightly higher.

Saw it tonight. I enjoyed it,  though it isn't a great film. Second best DC film next to Wonder Woman since THE DARK KNIGHT,  though that isn't saying much, I'm aware. Still, it's harmless enough (unlike the trash MAN OF STEEL, which I loathe), and it is actually FUN in parts. Definitely stay all the way through the credits at the end.

Best Superman portrayal on the big screen since Christopher Reeve. Henry Cavill was allowed to smile, and finally feels like the character.
