This is certainly one of the best DC movies (after Wonder Woman of course). It has plenty of good action, interesting story and a very powerful storytelling. I greatly enjoyed it even if it is a bit long and the Hulk-like final enemy/monster is rather disappointing and irritating — the concept of a monster full of energy who fires death rays feels a lot like Godzilla, so no extra point for originality here. I guess you get the best drama when you put emotion at play (or someone’s mama) while pitting super-heroes against each other. I only wish I would have watched this movie before its sequel, Justice League! They also made Lex Luthor into a Batman-type vilain, making the genius albeit evil boy into a simply mad genius — I am not sure if that was a good or a bad thing… Once again, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot offer good performances. Anyway, with this movie you get a great (somber) ambiance and epic battles that make it worth watching. As often, Rotten Tomatoes disagrees with a critical rating of only 27% !
