Justice League – Review

Finally, DC’s Justice League is finally here. The crime fighting group consisting of Batman, Wonderwomen, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg will combine their power to fight Steppenwolf – an evil ancient being feared by both the Amazonian and Atlantean. After of all the hype of the movie, will it finally give the DC the edge the require to kick Marvel of the chart?

It starts off with Superman’s death. Everyone is moaning of his death. However one particular person isn’t, Bruce Wayne a.k.a Batman. He was worried of the implication of Man of Steel’s death towards the world. He start recruiting. He start looking for the meta-human and he finds them. The conventional method of finding just pro-long the movie time and honestly it was a little too much finding. Never the less, Bruce Wayne played by your truly Ben Affleck seems very in touch with his feeling unlike BVS – he is more restrain. Maybe Zack wanted Batman to be regretful of his action of killing Superman?
Wonderwoman picks off quite beautifully with Diana Prince being herself. Gal Gadot didn’t spoiled the character at all. She is the perfect fit.
Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg all played by Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher did very well of their first DC movie. First of, Aquaman – we have to give it to Jason for bringing the character so well. I mean his version of Aquaman maybe more GOT ‘like’ but he pull it off good. Even though he didn’t have much dialogue, his action was talking more than required. Next is The Flash a.k.a Ezra Miller. Ezra plays the boyish speedster who not only talk alot but alot aswell. He character could use some more development but Zack tries to stick to the comic. We give him that. Last but not least is Cyborg. Supposedly to have died, he was revived by his father using one of Steppenwolf’s power(box). For Ray Fisher, we have to give him a pat on back for holding on the character  strong. 

Zack Snyder – while he is good in his previous work such Watchmen and 300 the key element was narrating the movie, Justice League in our opinion don’t require that thus making Zack talent in narrating kinda useless. In our opinion this where he lost the movie. His focuses was of place that forgotten to build the character’s background well. We are missing a lot of chunk of The Flash and Cyborg’s life. Even if you read about it, this is totally different than what is in the comic. 
FYI, there 2 post credit after the movie so do wait until the movie really finishes. Quite surprise with some of DC’s direction when it could be. The timeline between BTS and Justice League is to different time thus the confusion for some of the movie goers and comic book fan. One could only pray that JL2 would amend the timeline thus making more sense.

Our verdict of this movie, 4.5/10.
