Caught an early evening screening Thursday night with a sell out-crowd despite $18.50 3-D prices.
I quite enjoyed it. As far as the maligned FX-heavy late stuff, I don't see it as any worse than any other DC (other than The Dark Knight which managed to just focus on character agony instead of CGI-ness in its finale) or Marvel's over CGI'd frantic finales.
In spoiler code, I'd say my take on the CGI-heavy late stuff is...
The Diana vs. a god battle really seems pasted in from Man of Steel's climactic Metropolis battle. It's exciting all right, just sort of seems pulled in from a different film.
That part's entertaining enough but for me it's the earlier stunt work and sometimes imaginative camera work and viewpoints and character beats and humor that I'll remember.
I found Gal Gadot and Chris Pine really appealing, funny, vulnerable, brave, all that stuff. It's good to see Connie Nielsen (Gladiator, Game of Thrones) again and Robin Wright -- they're around my age (they're 51), but look marvelous and as a fogey myself it's good to see some 50+ women in big roles in a blockbuster.
The villains could've maybe used a bit more building up imho, but it's tough in origin stories some times to do much more than point that character A and B are "bad guys."
I didn't anticipate a big summer blockbuster in 2017 with WWI warfare scenes, but those were probably my favorite action set pieces. Maybe Battlefield 1 started a trend.
There is NO post-credits teaser at all, so if you see it, I advise not wasting your time waiting for something.
Anyway, I dug it, and I'll probably find a way to see it again sometime.
