Nothing like anything I've ever seen before. Nightmarish and terrifying in a psychological way. Claustrophobic and expertly crafted. Hidden fears around every corner. Multiple metaphors weaving a very human story. A lot could be said in opposition to the philosophical stance Aronofsky seems to take in this movie, but this is art. I wouldn't say someone failed to say something if I disagree with what it is they're saying. And Aronofsky's voice is heard loud and clear here.

Relentlessly scary and very well-made.

One thing you cannot deny about this movie is that it swung for the moon. They basically rolled three movies into one, and succeeded on many levels, but also stumbled in some aspects. The sound design and score were some of the best I've ever experienced. Ben Affleck is the best Batman we've seen and his Bruce Wayne is very good. Gal Gadot is great as Wonder Woman, both in and out of costume. The action is phenomenal, and there's some real heart to the movie. However, there are some problems as well. And they're not small. Most of my issues with this movie stem from the fact that they tried to do too much with it. The script was in dire need of a rework, but I know how impossible that can be with a movie this big, with so much riding on it. The pacing and theming suffered. There really was no singular theme or plot. Some story elements could have been cut entirely to make more room to polish the core story. Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was inconsistent and had way too much screen time for my liking. The wanton destruction from the first movie is back with a vengeance, and this time they really can't blame it on this being Superman's first outing. Overall, there was a lot to enjoy, but I'm not sure I'll remember this movie as intimately or fondly as Man of Steel.
