I had low expectations so I enjoyed it well enough, although I've forgotten most of the details now.. Aquaman seemed quite underused, is he developed more anywhere else in the franchise?
The Flash was good as comic relief, I think the film would have been duller without that. I haven't seen the Flash in anything else so I don't know if he's normally a funny character or not.

I thought i was horrible. So choppy editing and the actors look so uncomfortable playing their roles.

I thought it was a decent movie; I enjoyed all of the scenes with the heroes interacting and working together. I didn't much care for Steppenwolf as the villain, though; he came off as one of those dime-a-dozen all-powerful antagonists that have been played out (and played better) in so many other films that came before. Overall, it was OK, but it could have been so much better; I just hope they do better in the sequel...

I really love comic books and their story lines (no matter how many times they change). Batman has always been one of favorites, but Batman v Superman could have been SO much better (and I’m not saying it’s all Ben’s fault, though I still think it was a bad casting decision, but the Batman franchise has made bad choices in the past). I think Batman v Superman set the tone and expectations for all the following DC Universe films. The key problem with the DC films is there’s no likable villain (as in a villain someone might actually want to root for). The problem with Justice League too was there was no real suspense, so everything leading up to the ultimate fight felt too long, with too much mundane dialogue. “Oh, Aquaman rejected Bruce Wayne, I guess Aquaman won’t be fighting along side the other heroes, except all the previews and posters that say otherwise, so obviously he’ll join.” So then you’re just sitting there and nothing Aquaman says or does means anything. And there wasn’t enough time to develop his character to understand/show his true change of heart.

All of that being said, I paid to see it in the theater and liked it. I think the real issue is the market is flooded with so many comic book films (57 since X-Men came about, not including films like Blade or Kick-Ass, and another 14 upcoming films) all trying to sell the most tickets, the movies are going to try to appease a wide audience and most films will fall into the “I wanted to like it, but it was just meh” category, with a few exceptions. And those few exceptions really stand out in comparison, so people consider them great, when really they’re just good films. (The exceptions being whatever someone personally thinks was great, not that there’s a definitive list of films).
