The embargo on reviews for “Justice League” has lifted, and TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzalez and Beatrice Verhoeven are here to give you their thoughts on DC’s latest. Watch the review video above.
All in all, the consensus is that the film is good, but not great, is fun but is flawed, and the villain isn’t a show stealer, but the main characters — namely Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and The Flash — make up for it.
According to Gonzalez and Verhoeven, the film is indeed filled with good performances by the main Justice League members, however the bad CGI of the film handicaps its third act. However, the characterizations make up for the lack of action so the film is a palette cleanser and a step in the right direction for DC Entertainment.
“Justice League” stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Ciaran Hinds and Henry Cavill. Zack Snyder directed from a script by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, the latter of whom stepped in to complete the film after Snyder stepped down following the death of his daughter.
The movie opens Nov. 17.
Every DC Comics Movie Ranked From Worst to Best, Including 'Birds of Prey' and 'Joker'
How does the latest entry in the DC Extended Universe fare in our rankings?
Marvel may be the dominant force in comic book movies at the moment just through sheer numbers, it's actually DC Comics that has the historical edge. Films based on DC properties go back nearly a century to those ancient Batman and Superman serials, while Marvel didn't really get things going until this century. That's a lot of history -- how do the recent "Birds of Prey" and "Joker" stack up? Let's take a look.
