Pretty much agree with you, the first was ok watchable (6/10) but this was terrible after all the hype...I looked forward to it being set in the 80s but it was done in such a bad way especially at the start it was like some sort of cheap spoof of an 80s movie. CGI and green screen work were pretty poor too more so the end fight with cheetah.The first was a 7/10 for me (and pretty much the best of the current DCU films imo)
This? This was dire. 1984 is in the title, yet it never feels like it is the 80s at all, I think there was a single 80s song in the whole thing, the rest was orchestral stuff (but I guess if Zimmer is on board you make the most of it). Villain was awful as well.
