Justice League of everything?
First impression I can share with you: this movie is rushed. They tried to fit in a bit of EVERYTHING without considering that it might just be too much. And in a comic book — superhero movie world, rushing the plot is the last thing you want to do.
As part of a comic movies fan I did not really enjoy the fact that some new characters introduced through this movie — for instance, Aqua-man and Cyborg where not given the chance to “shine” in this movie, to show their audience who they are and give the audience a bit of context behind their story.
A Washington Post critic said: “Everyone involved in making “Justice League,” and everyone who will eventually see it, deserved something better than this.” And I agree. The trailer is mind blowing, that’s why created high expectations. But you will be disappointed when you enter the cinema, stay there for two hours and get out feeling like nothing was really connected.
The story is a bit of everything and we all know that within such a dynamic movie with such dynamic characters it’s difficult to keep consistency and showcase the characters when you add everything into it.
Now, time for some spoilers! (or maybe not as I would assume you have seen the movie already; if not, don’t bother, go spend the money on Star Wars instead!)
The main good points I see in this movie are:
*They successfully introduced the comic books Villan: Steppenwolf
*There an interesting story behind the action but too bad the execution is not as good
*Superman is brought to life
The main poor points I see in this movie are:
*Steppenwolf’s mission gets accomplished way to easily and steals the 3 Mother Boxes very easy
*The main story unfortunately does not allow all characters to showcase their strength and gift
*Superman is way to overrated. I mean, we all know he is the best at all things “super” but still, no member of Justice League succeeds to even hurt him slightly in their 101 (105 really/) battle? And he manages to look at The Flash in the speed force…come on. Not even Steppenwolf manages to hurt him slightly in their 101 fight at the end.
