The world-building is inadequate and the storyline is erratic. There are some good performances here, but the movie as a whole doesn’t work.

You can have The Rock, Wonder Woman, and Deadpool, but it doesn’t mean much if they don’t have clever things to say and meaningful things to do.

Despite trying to be a departure from the superhero generic norm, it misses wide of the mark and ends up being a major lapse.

With its short running length, this drunk-on-CGI production is less a movie and more the outline of something ambitious.

A series of loosely connected skits, this lacks a coherent narrative and appears to have been targeted almost exclusively at the pre-teen crowd.

There’s a dissonance between the film’s darker subjects and its seeming desire to offer something uplifting at the end, and the mediocre songs are a distraction.

Although made with care and competence and featuring a strong underlying premise, the film as a whole is forgettable.

The movie doesn’t make a lot of sense and it doesn’t help that the dialogue is poorly written and clumsily delivered.

Feels more like a two-hour commercial for the entire Warner Brothers catalog and a means of stroking LeBron James' ego.

Uses reliable science fiction/time travel/alien invasion tropes in ways that could be interesting but ultimately turn out to be regurgitations of stories we’ve seen before.
