DC finally got the formula right for the most part. Now can they get the general goodwill of the fanbase back?
To the degree you can put away what came before it, ‘Justice League’ is actually enjoyable and has some fun moments. For this generation, Superman has never felt more like Superman, the Flash is fun without feeling like a knock off of the current Spider-Man (which I worried about before I saw the film), the Aquaman take is fresh and different. We’ll never know how much credit goes to Josh Whedon and how blame goes to Zack Snyder, but this one was fun without feeling like a complete Marvel copy cat.
Are there flaws? Definitely. It irked me to hear Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent being referred to, in public, by their alternate identities. But as opposed to episodes in the past, it didn’t pull the whole movie down. If, as it seems, Batfleck is done putting on the cowl, I think it’s a little unfortunate he never got a full solo run with the character. He’s above average as both ‘Asshole Bruce Wayne’ and ‘Older Batman’. It is what it is.
Ignore the negativity. Give this one a chance and judge it for yourself.
