Has anyone seen it yet? Sources I trust say that it's bad, but not terrible. I'm considering going out of curiosity, but I'm conflicted because I'm reluctant to support these half-assed DC films. Might just wait for it to come out on Blu Ray in early Feb.

Saw it last night there are some cringe moments (The flash as a whole just upsets me I don’t like how he was written at all) Wonder Woman and Cyborg I think were the best characters. I don’t think they gave enough information on the villain. I’m not a hardcore DC follower but never even heard of this guy. Aqua man was ok I like the actor a lot and he had some cool moments but he didn’t shine well neither did anyone else except Wonder Woman but enough rant.
The movie just didnt it give me a emotional connection at all to any of the characters, plot was boring, the coolest thing in the movie are the villains undrlings.
Honestly idk how harsh I’m being but I would go see it in matinee or wait for it it’s like they said it’s not terrible but not close to what you would expect.and left me feeling like suicide squad did... wanting.

I went to watch it yesterday and it's not as bad as I expected. But it still is pretty bad. First we have some kind of frankenmovie that has been meddled with and repurposed, where the ridiculous Snyder things I hate mesh with the Whedon moments that seem ill-fitting. The plot and bad guy are 100% generic and terrible, from the visual design to the execution of the most base concepts. The visuals have been enlightened and color corrected away from Snyderism, but the costume designs and the general feel is still there.
An yet, you have something resembling the Justice League acting together. That is a sight to see. It's not The Avengers, not even remotely close, but the idea is still there, and that's something of value. Something I found amusing is that the movie works better if you ignore that there were movies before and any reference that it's done to BvS or Steve Trevor are just implying things and not actual movies. I say that mostly because it helps with consistency about how the characters are, since it seems that some of them have forgotten that they are in the Snyder Murderverse and suddenly seem to act like the comic book characters they are inspired from, something that I like but directly clashes with the other movies.
If you aren't specially interested or invested (or have a compulsion like I do) it's probably a pass, depending on the ease of access to the movie and free time, but it's really a better (and shorter) piece to watch than the ones before it, perhaps except Wonder Woman, although that movie had a bunch of problems that seem to have gone overlooked, but yeah.

... it seems that some of them have forgotten that they are in the Snyder Murderverse and suddenly seem to act like the comic book characters they are inspired from, something that I like but directly clashes with the other movies.
That would be the Joss Whedon reshoots. I've heard that he was asked to basically make these characters feel like actual comic book super heroes, and while he succeeded, he only reshot about 1/3rd of the movie, so it clashes.
The Justice League films are in an awkward place where I'm not sure they want to bring Snyder back, but Whedon is also on the Hollywood shit list right now, so... do you go back to Snyder? Do you hope Whedon's issues have blown over and ask him to take the helm full time? Or do you go in another direction? I kinda hope it's that last one, but DC will find a way to disappoint me.
I'm 90% sure I'm going to wait until it's available online. The main reason I want to see it is to dissect the reshoots (apparently it's very obvious which scenes were reshot due to the fact that Henry Cavill had a huge moustache during the reshoots, which was rush-job CGed out, and it shows.. I'm SO CURIOUS) but it's easier to do that on my computer/tv than in the theater.

So I FINALLY got around to seeing this.
It was shockingly bad. I mean that mostly from a writing/filmmaking perspective: In no way is that a complete movie. It's maybe 60% finished. For once I'm speechless.
I'll need a day or two to process, but I'm pretty sure that it's hands-down the worst DC movie ever made, ever. I don't even mean recently, I mean it's worse than Catwoman (okay probably not). Definitely worse than Suicide Squad.
