Imprisoned, the almighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
Fueled 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. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
This is the shortest DCEU film to date. See more »
Victor Stone states that the Mother Boxes were dormant until Superman died. However, previous films showed Victor becoming Cyborg (due to a fully functional Mother Box) prior to Superman's death. See more »
I grew up watching the Justice League animated series and I enjoyed every DCEU movie so far, so I was really excited to finally see these heroes together for the first time on the big screen. Unfortunately, the movie was a letdown. It's not bad by any means, but it was not as epic as it should have been. Here are my pros and cons:
+ The acting is really good
+ Great chemistry between the League
+ Some good action scenes (Amazons vs Steppenwolf is one the best moments of the movie), even though the movie lacks any memorable action like the ones in Man of Steel, BvS or Wonder Woman
+ Superman is finally done right
+ There are some fun scenes
+ The Flash is great and you can't ignore Wonder Woman every time she's on screen. Aquaman and Cyborg were fine. Batman was fine as well (Ben Affleck didn't look very interested in this movie as he was in BvS)
+ The post credit scenes are great
The plot is weak (bad guy wants to destroy the world, just like The
Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Man of Steel, Suicide Squad, X-Men: Apocalypse, etc). You can tell how it all ends, everything is very predictable
The villain is really awful. I didn't fear him for a second
Not a lot of surprises
The VFX is a letdown compared to Man of Steel and BvS (Superman's
erased mustache is really distracting)
Very little character development
You can tell basically all the scenes added in reshoots
The jokes didn't work. Most of them are silly, not funny
Gal Gadot's acting is not very good in some scenes. It looks like she
is as good as her directors. With Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman's director), she was great. Here with Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon, not so much
Some of the dialogues are really bad (like the ones with Mera and
Aquaman). Half of them are pure exposition
The movie lacks stakes or any sense of danger
The final battle is really generic
The movie is never really exciting. It's almost exciting, but never
really really exciting.
It's not a bad movie, but it's not great either. Unfortunately Justice League is just okay. You won't remember it in a year. I didn't love the movie, but based on the last post credit scene, I'm excited for where this universe can go next.
