The narrative was shit. The 'origin story' we were promised was brushed over with rubbish flashbacks that robbed it of any emotion.
As already noted, the last half hour of the movie was just a beat em up game. There's only so many times I can watch somebody thrown through a building. No dynamic in that finale at all, so the whole film was at least half an hour too long.
Shame because I was really looking forward to it, but it was just robbed of the emotion and glory the trailers promised.
Personally I chalk it up to yet another failure from Zack Snyder, but I know a lot of the blame falls on the writers. Shame on them!
The thing is , I like Zack Snyder's movies usually, even when the films aren't great, they are normally full of innovation, look at Sucker Punch, it would have been a lot better if the studio had allowed him to make the R rated movie he had planned to do, but the film was really quite stunning and full of ideas and things I had never seen before in a movie, and Watchmen, I still think is fantastic even though people tear it to shreds, that film is an impressive piece of art quite frankly
But Superman seemed devoid of anything new, and my biggest gripe was 1 punch from any of those characters would have killed Batman, this is supposed to be a universe where he joins the Justice League with him
