It's like watching a movie with every deleted scene and alternate take inserted into the movie.
Steppenwolf is much improved, and we actually see Darkseid this time, but many scenes are way too long and dragged out.
Whedon did some things better, like: handling Superman better (giving us the best version of Superman in the DCU), Cutting Flash scenes that belonged in a Flash movie, cutting Cyborg scenes, not because he's racist, but because Ray Fisher isn't very good.
I still think the big problem with the theatrical version is the clash in tone from two very filmmakers.
