Watching it again, at home with my son, in anticipation of ENDGAME...
I have to go on record and just flat-out admit: I don't like it.
To me, it feels overstuffed, awkwardly paced & edited, tonally uneven, and unwieldy (with a lot of forced humor), to the point that it reminds me of one of those notorious "Extended Editions" that Peter Jackson would always put out in the '00s.
It's ambitious enough, with (thankfully) some quieter moments sprinkled throughout, and it's far from the gloppy mess that JUSTICE LEAGUE ended-up being, but it's all just too much for this viewer. Not one I can see revisiting too often, unless ENDGAME proves to be a masterpiece.
(BUT: There's also no denying that "The Snap" is one of the most instantly-iconic cinematic moments of the '10s.)
