Justice League - 1.5 Stars
Not as bad as BvS, but nowhere near as good as Wonder Woman.
Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.
Joss Whedon took over from Zack Snyder when family circumstances interrupted the film and you can see easily where the two contrasting styles clash. Whedon re-wrote and re-shot a great portion of the film and you can see messy edits and bad CGI. The characters are interesting, but are given quick backstories that rush everything. Their personalities make the film bearable. Ezra Miller’s Flash is certainly a standout.
The CGI looks video game quality, not at all movie quality. The script is atrocious, the character interaction is great, but the plot fails to exist. It features the most disposable villain in cinema history.
Overall the lousy box-office stats alone should indicate that this DC failure won’t be tolerated by fans or critics.
