Plus the story line was very formulaic and predictable. Evil baddy from space/another dimension terrorized earth, superheroes must band together to save planet. Basically same story as the Avengers.
    It and the Avengers: Infinity Wars pretty much did in plans to do a Justice League v. Darkseid movie which is a shame since Darkseid is far more sinister a villain than Thanos and the all too forgettable what's his face in the JL movie.

    I didn't like the Flash in the movie either, he was a wiimp. And they didn't have the Green Lantern or Hawkman, or the Green Arrow, or a ton of characters. Not much of a Justice League.

    It was an interesting take on him -- an inexperienced rookie hero who wasn't sure he could be a superhero. From that angle he did a credible job. But it also came across that he was the comic relief meant to balance all that %#@$# brooding.

    You mean he was like the new Spiderman?

    I didn't like the lightning every time he ran. A bit overdone. He is supposed to be a blur, not a lightning bolt.

    The last movie I watched was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, after it came onto Netflix. Overall, I didn't hate it... but I didn't really love it either. It was a mixed bag for me.

    I eventually plan to watch the new Ghostbusters movie. I know I'm going to hate it going in, based on the trailer alone... but I want to watch it so I can see how bad it is.

    Yeah... That crap seems to be the new take on the character. Lots of that in the TV series. Not a fan.

    also, shouldn't there be a sonic boom destroying everything every time he runs?

    Superhero physics are rarely even tenuously connected to reality.

    Not to mention, can you imagine the wind he would stir up? And the air resistance he would have to face? He would have to be as strong as Superman to just force his way through the air at super speed. And as invulnerable to keep from burning up from the friction. and his suit would have to be made up of Space shuttle tiles.
