No, because it was a shallow shell of film that tried to pass as deep and reflective. It's what people have been accusing Nolan's Batfilms to be, only this time it's true. It was a MCU film wrapped up in seriousness.

Having said that, I had fun. But they need to step up their game. At least the MCU doesn't shy away from what it is: a silly and shallow franchise, that embraces both those traits and puts them to use. If DCU is going to try hiding the silliness and shallowness behind false depth, they're screwed.
