Watch it when it hits Netflix or HBO or whatever. The first half feels like it's nine hours long, and accomplishes a whole lot of going nowhere. The second half is actually pretty good. If you can enjoy the superb action sequences and visuals, and get past the gaping plot holes and a script that the WB would have laughed at. Seriously, as super hero scripts go, the writing on the Smallville series BURIES this movie. Yeah, it's that bad. If you had asked me to make a list of the top 100 actresses I would cast as Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot would not have been on it. I just never would have imagined her in that role. Buy that casting agent a beer, because she is beyond perfect for the role. Just absolutely ace. Unfortunately, she's a consolation prize. Not near enough of her character, and what's there is really not given its due. Her spot in the movie frankly comes across as an afterthought. She should have had her own movie. I get the distinct feeling that DC and the studio knew they had a weak film, and tossed in some eye candy to get the comic geeks out of their parents basement for the night. The upside is, she shines like a diamond, and even with crap hand she was dealt, makes a huge impression. I was fully prepared to hate Affleck as Batman, and I actually generally like him. I walked away loving him in the role. He's an even darker knight than Bale, and manages to leave the "oh whoa is me, I'm such a sad, tortured, orphan" thing out of the equation. He's just pissed. And it seriously works. Doomsday is awful. Just as bad as it gets. Remember the troll in the Moria battle scene in Fellowship of the Ring? Yeah. That's him. With super powers. Snooze. Can't remember the guy's name who plays Lex Luthor. He was entertaining. Took the character in a new direction that I actually am looking forward to seeing more of. To summarize- the whole thing script and plot wise is really weak, tediously slow, and completely full of holes. The movie feels really disjointed, and like whoever put it together was in a hurry and really didn't want to mess with making it as good as it could have been. The action sequences and visuals are great for the most part. Marvel really kicked things into high gear with Deadpool. If DC wants to be a player, they're gonna have to really step up their game. They are WAY behind the 8 ball with Batman V Superman. I think they did well with casting and characters, except for Superman, who was wholly unremarkable in any way, and Doomsday, who was just stupid. But the writing, both script and plot, was horrific. Even for a comic book film. The whole thing took a great idea, and thoroughly failed to deliver.
