Top critical review
Don’t believe everything you’re told.
2 December 2018
This film is no masterpiece and if you are expecting the greatest superhero movie, you will be disappointed. However if you are like me and enjoyed Man of steel, B vs S and Wonder Woman. You will enjoy this, it’s got plenty of action and beautiful visuals.
The issue this film has is it’s got weak foundations, DC raced to get to this team up and it feels rushed. The characters feel shallow and their relationships feel distant or forced in some cases.
Henry Cavill’s cgi top lip is distracting at times. But the costumes are great and the super powers on display are cool.
This is not a Marvel movie but if you like the DC characters as a casual fan, this will entertain you but if your looking for a legacy film this isn’t it.
Batfleck is a likeable Batman
Gal Gadot is great as Wonder Woman
Flash is entertaining although a little tedious.
Cyborg is moody
Aquaman is cool and Superman is just as Super as always. However the villain Steppenwulf is easily forgettable, you never feel his threat. He is slightly interesting when he takes on a whole bunch of Amazon warriors but then what could be a great fight scene gets turned into a lacklustre chase scene. You never feel the threat from him, I felt more threat from the Vulture in Spider-Man homecoming.
Overall a fun who’s who of the justice league and a decent use of 2 hours, but we needed more character development from more solo films before jumping into the team up.
