I saw it.
I liked it.
Mind you, I didn't love it. The dream sequences seemed juvenile, Lex seemed like an addlepated homeless person, Batman was way too easily influenced (and a rather poor detective), and MY Superman would be much more concerned about making a mess in the bathroom.
But most of what I didn't care for (the gloom, the conflict, etc.) is built in to the premise of the movie: Batman VERSUS Superman is a dumb concept to begin with. That is going to be non-fun, that is going to require them to behave stupidly and out-of-character, and that's going to feel more like a Marvel comic than a DC one. I read DKR when it came out 30 years ago, and that's how it felt then. I don't blame the director for that, I blame the adolescent fans who want DKR re-played 30 years after it came out and childishly wonder "Who would win in a fight of Hero 1 against Hero 2?" And sure enough all the dumbest, hollowest, lines in the movie are ones taken directly from that story.
After settling in to the movie a bit, my expectations adjusted immediately when I realized: this is an opera. Just one without music. It's big ideas and characters tromping across the scene being all symbolic and conflict-y. If the plot needs someone to be dumb, they are (how quickly did Lois regret pointless throwing away that spear, huh?). And you can criticize that all you want -- it deserves it -- but to pretend that comics aren't like that, haven't ALWAYS been like that, is simply naive.
I have to admit, when there was a pause in the action for a sec and I saw the Trinity standing there together, ready to fight as a team...it was breathtaking and took me by surprise. That a film could make me feel that way is enough of a sniff test for me.
Getting the stupid conflict out of the way FIRST, clearing a path to a unified Justice League? If it's going to happen, better than having it happen later, I say. And interesting to me that the catalysts for ending the testosterone-laden conflict -- Lois, Martha, and Diana -- were women.
If anything the end of movie kind of emphasized, "Wow, that was stupid that we were fighting, wasn't it?" And that's a good place to be going forward.
