JUSTICE LEAGUE – review

JUSTICE LEAGUE

   D.C. has been playing catch up with MARVEL for the last few years, but failed with Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.  While these did not succeed they hoped to put  a better product on the screen with Justice League, even added some humor into the flick, but where the humor was funny, the plot was just so so.

     One of the problems I had with the flick was the Villain was not that great, actually one of the end credit scenes had more interesting villains than Steppenwolf.  Even with the help of being voiced by Ciaran Hinds the CGI was simple.  After seeing The Hulk in Thor and how you can do CGI justice (Thank you Marvel), most of the CGI was not that great in Justice League.

  I should tell you I like D.C comics better than Marvel, yes I do, and so do most comic geeks.  When it comes to the movies Marvel beats them hands down.  While I didn’t like the Villain and his quest for the 3 mother boxes…. You will have to see the movie to understand unless you have read the comics. 

  Now the good news on the flick: they have added some new characters with Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and the Flash (Ezera Miller) join who we already have met Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), and yes while Super Man (Henry Cavill) is dead in the start of the movie we still see traces of him in Lois Lane (Amy Adams) memories, and you never know he might show up….

  While this isn’t the best Super Hero flick, it is at least showing us D.C is heading in the correct direction, let’s hope the unaccredited Joss Whedon who took over for Zack Snyder.  Yes, we still see a lot of Snyder’s touch, but also some of Whedon’s which we loved in Avengers.  I am not sure how to grade this D.C movie, while it still isn’t great like Wonder Woman was, it is not terrible as well.  So I will grade it a B- to a C.  If you have seen Thor already, yes go see this one now, if not see Thor first it is way better.
