Probably one of the worst film I've see in on a long time. Such a talented cast for film that went nowhere. It actually offended me how bad it was. The sound quality and music was also horrendous. A serial killer plot where the kill a random man and don't catch the killer.
There are elements in this film that I enjoyed however there is so much that just didn't work. From the opening of the movie to crazy amounts of continuity errors, never has a trilogy of movies not worked a trilogy. At least Eps 1-3 4-6 work as a collection of movies. Disney's attempt to rewrite Star Wars whilst clinging on what makes it nostalgic was a bad move. Episode 9 is a mess and not even a hot mess. The ending is well... End Game...
What I love so much about this film is Zack beautiful creates aesthetic worlds for both Batman & Superman. This film is rich with story that isn't the conventional ‘super hero' narrative we've become accustomed to. It challenges us and takes up on a ride as active spectators. I cannot express how much I enjoyed this movie.
When Josstice League came out in 2017 there was a clear disconnect between Jack's footage and what was Joss. There was always that feel that there was something off with how Zack's footage was used and edited. From effects, to editing, to cinematography, aesthetic, plot, pacing, performance and music the 2021 cut is far superior in all ways. Introducing violence and language was a shuttle nod to Zack's original vision that the DCEU isn't Disney and this is something new. The fat cats at WB need to allow filmmakers to complete their visions and no interfere. ZSJL is a prime example of a film that should of been allowed to breath. Man of Steel, BVS Ultimate and now ZSJL has sparked many debates and have had people talking for over 8 years. A good filmmaker cannot please everyone and Zack's visions are to congratulated. ZSJL is a 4 hour work of art that deserves all the success. The DCEU should be restored with Zack at the helm.
