yea im not holding a lot of weight on critics. IM3 was weak, plain and simple. so to slam MOS which was written, directed way better and didn't use gimmicky slapstick action and comedy to entertain. IM3 trailer made it seem better than what i actually got.
a question ive been pondering is...would the movie be vastly different if nolan god directed and co wrote it? also would it be better?
Nolan did co-write the script, but I think he helped more with building the story & less with the actual script & dialogue.
I think the movie would've been different if Nolan had directed the film. Being a director himself, I don't think he meddled too much into what Synder was doing. In fact, I'm not sure he was too involved. I think WB wanted him attached to the relaunch of this to help steer it in the right direction at the ground stages & probably a little at the end in post production...
