Rotten Tomatoes certified critic, youtuber, film lover with an appetite for horror especially.
I'll admit I had a similar reaction coming out of H2018 as I did Kills. BUT...the big difference here is my expectations were far lower due to my feeling settling in for the first movie. Kills surprised the hell out of me honestly, delivering punctuated kills, a brewing message throughout of mob mentality, and some pretty shocking surprises in the character department.

Zack Snyder's Justice League is a lesson in proper handling of a story, especially in terms of editing, pacing, character building, and even cinematography. It just feels more cohesive. And the 4 hour runtime only benefits it (Snyder has included convenient chapter points).
If you're a fan of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, you will definitely be happy as it rounds out the story quite well and offers possibilities to move forward.
With the star power here and the dystopian setting Reminiscence should have been a sure fire home run, but I had my worries. The villains are completely one-dimensional. The story runs like a bad noir detective piece, with cheap romance and heavy melodrama laced throughout. Honestly it's so bad, it's kind of shocking.
