Justice League Reviews

All of Snyder's DC films - Justice League included - seem more concerned with the repercussions of actions than with the actions themselves.

It's an even messier saga than Dawn of Justice, with a tiresome and whiskery macguffin in which three magic boxes must be brought together for evil, then prised apart for good.

Perhaps the new Superman is closer to what the fans wanted. But he doesn't really feel like a character anymore. He, like the rest of his movie, feels like a focus group-approved concept.

Ribbing wisecracks, courtesy of co-writer Joss Whedon, jar with director Zack Snyder's oppressive, dour approach to the source material.

The action is exciting at times but the outcomes are predictable. Indeed, this often has the feel of a set-up movie, one made to kick off a series.

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.

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 thankfully leaves the punishing, exhausting darkness of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice behind and goes for a looser, more humorous vibe.
November 17, 2017
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.

The filmisn't perfect, and with so many details and characters-bordering on the edge of clutter-is ripe for nit-picking. But on the whole I had a good time.
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.
November 16, 2017
Even the strength of Superman couldn't turn this ship all the way around.
November 16, 2017
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.

Justice League is a crowd-pleaser only if you're part of a comics-obsessed crowd.
November 16, 2017
The notion of Superman as a guiding ideal haunts these films...It's a vision [the filmmakers] recognize Superman is supposed to embody, but seem incapable of...actually realizing.

The movie is a clumsy steamer trunk of continuing story lines and returning stars .
November 16, 2017
Honestly, Justice League's main problem is that it's boring, and fails to convince me why I should care... beyond the fact that they are all famous cultural properties.
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.
