DC’s main event is a mostly enjoyable one with a few noticeable caveats. Character dynamics shine brightest, the league is rounded out by lots of charismatic moments.

Generally speaking, whenever news breaks that a highly-anticipated blockbuster is undergoing reshoots, it’s considered a bad sign.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is responsible for rating most films that have a theatrical release and many that have DVD releases as well.
