    Saw it, enjoyed it. Yeah they packed every crazy subplot and iconic image they could think of over the last three years into a single movie, but fuck it I liked it.

    They didn't show the world enjoying its heroes enough to build statues of them to counterbalance the more serious discussions about the ramifications of super-powered beings living among us.

    I think that's what they're most guilty of, that and one crappy CGI'd effect you'll know when you see it.

    They're getting all cultish about it. It's weird how some people can't enjoy both.

    The movie is excellent...it does take a bit to really ramp up, but they clearly wanted to flesh out The Trinity. Batman is just flat out brutal. Not much difference in Superman from Man of Steel. Wonder Woman was a bad ass...couple times she smirked in the middle of some fight scenes.

    I was very impressed with Eisenberg...Luthor has always battled Superman with his brain, so him being of slight build means nothing. He is a cold mofo though...he has an agenda and keeps to it...doesn't really care who gets hurt along the way...even his own people.

    Glad to hear this, most of the reviews are harping on how joyless it is and I keep thinking that's the point..... DUH!

    I liked Man of Steel and I don't hate, Snyder he tends to do action right which is the point of comic book movies IMO.

    Yeah I even liked Sucker Punch the fight visuals were great.

    Most reviews say, dark, no fun, blah blah blah. Do all movies have to be fun?

    I'll probably go see it since a couple here say it is good.

    I did like the way there was some background on the main Justice Leaguers not in this movie...and it was not shoehorned in there. Admittedly I know nothing about Cyborg, but I am very optimistic about Flash and Aqua Man.

    Really? I feel like his incessant hamming came close to spoiling the whole thing. It was like he was trying to pull off the Joker instead of Luthor. Recast that character and make Luthor truly a super villain instead of some geeky dork, it is a much better flick.

    The "too dark" narrative was overblown. Although they could have played up the mistrust of humanity and the "God" angle more.

    Gene Haxkman was the definitive Luthor. Eisenberg was over the top, but you kind of have to be when you are competing for time with these superheroes. He was a puppet master.

    Even Spacey was a better Luthor.

    Then again, I think they were playing him up as son of Lex, hence a different character.

    Then that would be the third generation Luthor in the Superman history.
    Since Day One
