Ciarán Hinds portrays Steppenwolf in performance-capture. Hinds was unfamiliar with using the technology and got advice from his friend Liam Neeson, who had earlier done performance-capture acting in A Monster Calls (2016). See more »
At the beginning of a movie, Wonder Woman had to stop a briefcase bomb from exploding and destroying 4 city blocks. At the last possible second she threw the bomb up through a hole in the roof. The bomb then exploded, in the air, without destroying anything.
She threw the bomb away from the people she was protecting, but the bomb didn't travel a minimum of 4 city blocks in the air. The bomb also didn't have any additional reactants/accelerants other than what was part of the bomb. It should have destroyed the building they were in and at least 2 city blocks more. See more »

Silica-based quartz sand fabric. Abrasion resistant. Heat resistant.
Uh... yeah, I do... competitive ice dancing.
It's what they use on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up on re-entry.
I do... very competitive ice dancing.

My rating of 1 does not indicate of how bad the movie quality is rather my disappoint with the ultimate result. My review doesn't comes out as a pure hate machine but rather due to the epic disappointment of one might feel after waiting for so long to witness the most epic team up quite possibly of this century to turn into a mediocre generic film.
This should've been the most epic saga in DCEU's continuity but alas rushing to compete with Disney finally took a toll on this franchise. The characters are well enough on their own but their development as individuals are rather paltry. The cinematography is awkward at times as evident from multiple re shoots done by Joss Whedon.
The CGI in some parts are terribly glaring to avoid and it feels too much green screen effect that makes your head hurt while watching in a dark room. Some are too bright while some are too dark. The color grading is very inconsistent with the background. As you all know Superman returns from the dead (which is kinda given at this point) but his resurrection isn't handled well enough. What should've been the rekindling of the hope people lost like the Rebirth of a Phoenix is marred by botched character interactions and idiotic dialogues.
The supporting characters such as Mera, Martha Kent and Alfred are wasted even further. One of the most highlighting parts of BVS was the interactions between Alfred and Bruce engaging in both morally and logical decisions. Sadly it's been reduced to banal banter between them and others. I'm not going to highlight the humor since it's overdone and doesn't fit organically in this film narrative. Humor is good and should be present but not forced and overstuffed like Disney films recently have become.
The villain is generic along with musical score by Danny Elfman which is just rehashing of the same old stuff. Wait for the 4K or bluray release to see edited scenes as consistent with DC's film which might be better.
