While the Snyder cut manages to make simple edits from the original into much more better choices (Such as omitting Flash landing on Wonder Woman’s breasts or Steppenwolf being obsessed with “mother”) it still manages to be a huge disappointment. The added hours to this film are massively pointless and poorly edited. While Cyborg has the best added material, Flash has the worst. He’s such a huge creep in this movie and I can’t stop cringing with the awful acting, dialogue and overall performance from the character.
The CGI is also really bad in this movie. Instead of actually fixing the poorly edited CGI moments of the original, all they do is put the CGI effort into Darkseid and Steppenwolf. There’s really sloppy background work where some people make mistakes or aren’t fighting properly, especially CGI work. There’s instances where some of the main characters, during fight scenes, end up looking like PlayStation 3 cutscenes. Wonder Woman got some really poorly edited fight stuff in this.
The movie also manages to scrap some fan fiction garbage by throwing so many characters into the film who really don’t do anything whatsoever. Darkseid really does nothing here, most disappointingly at the end where he merely watches Steppenwolf get his head chopped off instead of using the time while the portal is open to aid him. The music is fucking terrible. There’s just really bad scores and they change some of the music to some really ridiculous god chanting shit.
The epilogue end of the world vision stuff is fucking trash too. We get Jared Leto’s Joker who is poorly acting like Heath Ledger’s Joker and some really irritating back and forth nonsense between them and the other survivors. They don’t explain any of that dumb stuff and just keep referencing it to be a vision Bruce sees of the future. We get Martian Manhunter in two scenes that are SO FUCKING UNNECESSARY. There was no point to him pretending to be Martha and trying to brighten up Lois and him talking to Bruce Wayne at the end showing up randomly and saying he would help them in the next fight.
Mera was terrible, especially because Amber Heard is an abusive piece of shit as a person, but outside of the real world, she’s annoying in this and has a random English accent now? Everyone in this is really terrible except Cyborg and Alfred. Shame on them for doing Wonder Woman poorly, not utilizing their villains properly and spitting on basically everyone who wanted this film to come out.
It’s a damn shame we couldn’t get stuff fixed for this film to make it better. Mostly this film just felt the same as the original cut except with some stuff from the original cut being fixed, only to add more ridiculous crap, amounting to a four hour movie of wasting time.
