So what did you all think?
Personally I am a Superman junkie and will watch anything with the Man of Steel in it. Hell I really liked Man of Steel and Superman Returns. I even have a soft spot in my heart for Superman 3 and Superman 4: Quest for Peace.
So was BvS a hot mess of a film? OMG yes. But I still enjoyed it for what it was, a fun popcorn flick that gave me something I have been waiting for my entire life (since age 14 really) to see in cinematic form (the cartoon movie that was a rushed 1hr doesn't count, I can explain further later if needed).
The plot I felt was the weakest part of this film. The editing was just so jumpy that the story didn't really make much sense. I didn't like Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. The wife asked me why he was acting more like the Joker than traditional Lex, and I had no answer.
I did enjoy Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. I liked the way they showed Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg int eh film without just having them show up and go "hey, we're the Super Friends now". Jeremy Irons was a badass Alfred (reminds me of Alfred on Gotham).
So of course I am looking forward to Justice League, but I will go in with lower expectations. I am more looking forward to the solo Wonder Woman and Batman films coming up.
