I found this particular story to be better told than the original comic book version that it’s adapted from.
Part of this movie’s strength comes from the relationship between Lois and Clark / Superman. That’s the emotional core that drew me into this.
The pacing worked for me here, with its gradual build-up of the Doomsday character, and the things he did before he eventually encountered to Superman.
Successfully includes the rest of the Justice League heroes into what is essentially a Superman-centric story, with some choice highlights involving Wonder Woman, and Batman.
Lex Luthor gets to shine here, being all Lex Luthor.
The fight sequences were also good, and they properly conveyed a sense of danger.
Wasn’t scared to be all hard PG-13 here.
The final scene showed that this movie was too scared to end it the way it should have ended. Kinda ruined that final emotional weight that this movie earned.
A couple of scenes took some suspension of disbelief, with me scratching my head as to why certain things had to happen.
Another movie that has to have some plot conveniences to move things along.
