    He co-wrote the movie and set the tone for the DCEU

    I scored it a 5 myself. Finally saw it earlier this week when it came to Redbox and I could rent the blu-ray for $2.

    I agree. I don't know that this needed Snyder, but I think letting Patty Jenkins do the writing all by herself was a mistake. Why didn't the writing team who did the first one (of which she was a part) do this one also?

    That's a bit unfair.

    I watched Justice League three times just for the leather pants.

    Script / story was appallingly bad. What was the significance of “ 1984” sorta George Orwell reference, or what. Didn’t even look like the early eighties.
    Think a better story would have been set during WW 2.

    That's what I was thinking. But the wife rented it to watch with our (college age) son who also was not interested in going out of his way to see it.

    So how does her lasso of truth grab onto lightning bolts as if they were a metal pole? Did she do that in the comics?

    Saw it in the theater. I enjoyed it. Nothing earth shattering. The first movie was better, in my opinion.

    Rote and generic. Story felt padded out and not very strong to begin with. Plot holes aplenty. A WWI Pilot can instantly fly a jet? Really? Kristin Wiig wasted as the villain. Okay action entertainment but jettisons everything great and special about the first movie. Even Gal comes off as pretty bland. Like Captain Marvel and the last Spiderman movie, just kind of MEH. I am starting to think Super Hero movies have reached their plateau and the slow decline has begun.
