I'd say that it's a competent film, but a poor adaptation. For as many scenes as Snyder replicates from the comic book, he tends to completely misinterpret what Alan Moore was actually saying with this story.

Black Lightning started off good, though I'm wondering how long it will take until Berlanti rolls back that "It's totally not part of the Arrowverse" statement and does crossovers.

Really got into the premiere for Black Lightning. Not only does it feel tonally different from the other CW DC shows, but it also seems to have a much stronger cast (at least so far) all around, whereas the other shows tend to have a good enough lead but a really mixed supporting cast that range from decent to outright awful. I don't get that same feeling from these characters, yet, though again, it is only the first episode.

I also enjoyed the Black Lightning premiere. Which surprised me, since I wasn't sure if it would do a good job of being socially aware, but it wasn't as gawdy or obnoxious as I was expecting. I hope the show stays in this direction.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.
