Reviews say lots of action scenes could be some dumb popcorn fun.

I just saw it, 4/5

-Origin story
-Exposition heavy but also light (lite?) in other areas
-Semi dark/savage, hoping for directors cut
-Different, like Shazam (definitely not of the mind of Snyders universe)
-Action sequences like anime that badmonk would probably approve of (could’ve been darker but then been r rated?)
-lots of foreshadowing for after credits scene
-there’s only one after credit scene, totally worth it

Did I enjoy it and have fun, yes…. Would I pay again to rewatch it, no, I’d wait to see it at home on HBO…maybe cos the suns setup sucked, right side speakers were noticeably low, hopefully it’s gif for black panther

Yeah I think it looks great and loads of reviews saying it’s a bad movie underneath all the action but it’s FUN! Action looks dope and end of the day, I watch movies for fun, not some life changing experience but F U N.
You seemed to enjoy it. I def will check it out.

It’s definitely a good movie, I guess just the first act has it’s exposition dump and maybe some pacing issues but it does showcase some awesomeness that’s very Superman v Zod that feel like if this weren't marketed for such a broad audience that it could’ve been much more bloodier and gruesome that would’ve put it up there with the second Deadpool movie….maybe comeback to this comment after you’ve seen it, definitely wanna hear your pov/thoughts.

So it’s like my ranting system would be; bad/avoid, bad/train-wreck, forgettable/mid, good, great. This is definitely GOOD

It was originally R rated apparently and underwent major editing to hit PG13 I think it is.

That explains certain scenes I was like “yo, that grenade lets go*turns to brother-in-law at the same time tunes back and to watch and kinda disappointed but then remember rating and my niece there*

Yeah as I mentioned before I'm sure a directors cut version will be released.

Saw it earlier. If you enjoyed MoS you will like this.
