Justice League had a lot to live up to or would be just another nail in the DC movie universe. I was excited to see Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman again, and I really needed to know the fate of Henry Cavill’s Superman. To be honest I was skeptical of Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher joining the super hero force, but amazingly they both held their own and brought great characters into the fold. Even Jason Mamoa was great with the limited parts of the story he contributed to. It is hard to be a water God and fight crime on land. Ben Affleck returns one more time (maybe final time) as Batman and is better as Bruce Wayne than the guy in the cape and cowl fighting bad guys. Yes this movie is flawed from start to finish. The bad guy gets just about as much scene time as Jeremy Iron’s Alfred character, so you can see the focus was more on developing a team, dealing the giant elephant in the room Superman, than saving the world again. Why does every superhero movie involve an end of the world kind of bad guy? Can’t they just fight ordinary criminals? If you can forget Batman vs. Superman ( I actually enjoyed it), and can remember how amazing Wonder Woman was, and meet the Justice League in the middle, you may actually like this movie. I was entertained from start to finish and gave this movie a chance to impress me, which it did, and I look forward to what is to come. 7 /10
