I concede I probably was more forgiving than I expected. Part of that may be due to the relative unfamiliarity of the characters. Batman and Superman have a more solid iconic status in my head than the likes of Deadshot and Captain Boomerang. Quinn I knew from the animated series and little else. So, that probably helped. Also, while I agree that this film is a mess, it was such an improvement over the two Superman films that the bar to impress had been moved pretty low. As much as I do like Cavill as Superman, he was given so little to do in those films that it became frustrating. This film at least gave a couple of the actors something to play with. And, yeah, Robbie carried the film for me as well. Without her and Leto (in about half of his scenes) this probably would have been unbearable. Though I will disagree with half of you comments about Captain America. I agree that he is a dull character in the comics. But, part of what has impressed me about the Marvel films is how they managed to make him exciting by putting him in interesting situations without changing any of the exact traits that make him so dull. In fact, it is that bland idealistic goodness that becomes the central drive of the moral conflicts of his films. If DC was going to take any lessons from Marvel about how to handle Superman, that should have been the one.
