Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman got the tone right last time, which suggested things were looking up. But without director Patty Jenkins around, she's subject to the dismissive male gaze for which Hollywood's long been criticized.
November 17, 2017
There's some welcome levity, some genuine conversation (as when Bats and Diana share a drink), and a few moments that feel like really good comic book panels (especially mid-credits). For some, that may be enough.

Justice League clears the spectacularly low bar set by Batman v Superman. Whether bare adequacy is a compelling reason to extend the franchise is another matter.
November 17, 2017
A pointless flail of expensive (yet, somehow, cheap-looking) CGI that no amount of tacked-on quips, or even Gadot's luminescent star power, can rescue.

Even the strength of Superman couldn't turn this ship all the way around.

A C-grade B-movie wherein all involved fully satisfy their contractual obligations.
November 16, 2017
Everyone involved in making "Justice League," and everyone who will eventually see it, deserved something better than this.
November 16, 2017
Justice League is a crowd-pleaser only if you're part of a comics-obsessed crowd.
November 16, 2017
The movie is a clumsy steamer trunk of continuing story lines and returning stars .
November 16, 2017
Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ezra Miller as Flash are bright spots in this fractured coming together of DC's heavy hitters, but the film takes so many happy pills it almost overdoses on them. Sometimes shadows need to fall to show us what to be scared of.
November 16, 2017
A film in which solid storytelling is neglected in favor of grandiose but ultimately empty special effects.
November 16, 2017
While Justice League endeavors to save the world -- and plant the seeds to do so again -- this is the sort of film, given DC's track record, that should celebrate small victories where it can find them.

Mediocrity, thy name is Justice League.
November 16, 2017
I went into Justice League with high hopes but low expectations. It exceeded the expectations, but didn't rise to the level of the hopes.
November 16, 2017
The filmmaking is just slipshod, with action sequences that swing in and out of coherence and dialogue scenes framed for maximum awkwardness.
November 16, 2017
Miller's weird, antiheroic Flash is one of the most refreshing breezes to blow through Justice League, making three years seem a long time to wait for the character's 2020 stand-alone film.
November 15, 2017
The next time these characters band together, perhaps they will do so with stronger backgrounds, a real sense of purpose, and a story that's more than a cobbled-together mess.
November 15, 2017
The film is marginally better than last year's sour and dispiriting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that's like saying that dental surgery is preferable to passing a kidney stone.
November 15, 2017
Justice League is no magic carpet ride, no matter how hard it strives for multi-superhero awesomeness.
November 15, 2017
At least at two hours -- brief by modern superhero standards -- Justice League doesn't overstay its welcome. But like most all-star games, it's better as fantasy than it is reality. Level your expectations to the league minimum.
