Consensus XXX: DC Extended Universe
« on: November 20, 2017, 08:00:27 am »
Previous.

MAN OF STEEL
25%

What should've been a fresh, unique take on the classic character is instead a tragic disappointment, as Zack Snyder's dark and gritty reimagining of the typically light-hearted Superman represents one of the most misguided reboots in recent memory, with a talented cast wasted in poorly written parts and repetitive action sequences chock-full of obnoxious shaky-cam and editing.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
33%

Ben Affleck shines as the Dark Knight, but Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice represents another loud, lengthy, mean-spirited misstep in the DC Extended Universe, tackling interesting ideas and concepts but having no idea what to do with them, eventually scrapping them away in the end for more tedious CGI nonsense.

SUICIDE SQUAD
25%

Promising something fresh and unique only to completely botch it in execution and resort to generic plotting and nonsensical, hole-laden logic, Suicide Squad is once again a fatal misstep in the DC Extended Universe, with poorly written characters, choppy direction, abhorrent editing, and an utter joke of a villain.

WONDER WOMAN
90%

A pleasantly surprising entry in the DC Extended Universe, Wonder Woman has its fair share of flaws, mainly its derivative, CGI-heavy climax, but the hopeful nature of its well-cast protagonist and its more spirited, heartfelt tone make for a refreshing change of pace.

JUSTICE LEAGUE
25%

The DC Extended Universe swings and misses hard yet again with Justice League, another tedious, choppy exercise in wafer-thin plotting and characterization, poorly-rendered CGI overkill, and messy, blatantly rushed storytelling.
