I enjoyed this movie. I was entertained.
Sure, it was not as good as many of the Marvel franchise movies, but theirs is a studio designed specifically around the Marvel superhero universe. That is ALL they do, so yeah, they kind of rock at it.
The Justice League's story, and arguably the direction, could have been better, but the cast is great (Jesse Eisenberg's Luthor not included).
I particularly love Ben Affleck as Batman. I was discouraged recently to see an article suggesting that Affleck may be looking for a graceful way out of the Batman role. I am not a hard core fan boy, but I have still waited twenty some years for someone to get Bruce Wayne right. Aside from a single scene where he comes off a little smug which is very not Batman ("I hear you can talk to fish" and "Can you at least point me to Atlantis?"), Affleck nails it. It is almost a shame that that particular scene was in every preview. Take the movies themselves out of the equation and he is easily my favorite live action actor as Batman. If nothing else he just LOOKS the part.
Jason Momoa is a welcome twist to the Aquaman character. I wasn't sure how I would feel about Ezra Miller as Barry Allen but it really worked, and of course Gal Gadot and Henry Cavill look like Superman and Wonder Woman should.
I would love to see a studio put the quality and dedication that Marvel has toward the DC universe, but at the end of the day I enjoyed the movie. Ultimately isn't that what matters?
Unfortunately, going into a movie with the wrong expectations can ruin an otherwise very well done movie. So for 50/50 I would have to say: Good movie/Horribly marketed.
It is categorized as a comedy. It is NOT a comedy. Sure there are some good lines and well placed jokes that round out the otherwise serious and tragic tone of this movie, but not enough to justify the comedy billing.
So I really don't have any complaints about the movie itself, it really was a great movie, but it sucks that it is promoted as a comedy. It not only takes away from the experience for those of us caught unaware, it cheapens the great jobs done by Jonathan Levine, Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and everyone else who made the movie.
