In exactly the same boat. I just liked that all the military stuff went out the window and it went down the full fantasy adventure route.Finally saw it today; and wow that was the most balls-to-the-wall, everything-up-on-the-screen, no-expense-spared, unapologetic visual effects blockbuster since Aquaman.
I'm racking my brains trying to work out why I enjoyed it so much more than King of the Monsters, because it was every bit as stupid and then some. But I did, I really did. 7.5/10 for sheer popcorn entertainment. And the CGI was stonkingly good.
