JUSTICE LEAGUE
movie review by David Blackwell

120 minutes, Rated PG-13
STUDIO: Warner Bros Pictures. Rat-Pac Dunes Entertainment/ Cruel and Unusual Films
Theatrical RELEASE DATE: 11-17-2017
Months after Superman's death, Batman/ Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) is trying to bring together a group of superheroes to fight against major threats (based on the visit from the future and dream he had in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE). He attempts to recruit Arthur Curry aka the Aquaman (Jason Momoa) with no success, but He is able to get Barry Allen/ The Flash (Ezra Miller) on board. Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) brings a warning that an invasion has started with Stephenwolf and his army of Parademons searching for the three Mother Boxes which will remake the Earth if put together. Will the team of Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg be enough or will they have to find a way to bring back a fallen hero known as Superman?

JUSTICE LEAGUE isn't a great movie, but it isn't a bad movie. It is an enjoyable movie, but the mandated runtime of two hour and the switch of directors in post=-production (Joss Whedon took over editing and did some reshoots after Zack Snyder stepped down (due to the death of his daughter). Some character development scenes with Aquaman, Cybrog, and the Flash hit the floor along with some dialogue and action scene trims. The introduction of new characters is a little rushed with almost no character development and Stephenwolf is lame as a bad guy (plus some of the action scenes seem less epic than the action scenes like in the Avengers movie directed by Joss Whedon). JUSTICE LEAGUE is a lighter affair with some humor. I just hope there is a longer cut or a cut closer to Zack Snyder’s original version released on blu-ray. JUSTICE LEAGUE is a fun way to spend two hours even though it isn't a 100 percent home run for DC and Warner Bros Pictures. Please stay around for the two extra scenes during the end credits.
