A serious danger threatens the world. Batman is forming a special team to help him save the world. With wonderwoman, he goes looking for Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash. Some of them show some resistance to join the group but ultimately join the team to save the world.
The Super teamI found that the different characters worked well enough together but I think they were not enough. A lot of justice league fan favorites could have been included. Other than that, the characters were nice. I had a tough time accepting Ezra Miller as the Flash. Being a fan of Grant Gustin's Flash and all. I also found that his character had too much forced comedy moments. But I know Ezra Miller is a good actor so I might like him more in the future.
Scary SupermanEven though I found it weird and curious that superman was resurrected the same way that doomsday was created, the moment he wakes and loses it, it is just the coolest thing in the movie. It was impactful. It looked good. It showed how powerful superman really is. It was amazing to watch.
Weaknesses of the movieSteppenwolf, the villain. We don't really care about him. He is just here to make the team come together, but superman alone could have taken care of him. People didn't like Luthor in Batman V Superman, but at least he was a living character. Steppenwolf was just there.
That being said, the story itself was a little weak, maybe in part because of the villain, maybe in part because of all the rewrites, the re-shoots and other stuffs. That movie was way too expensive for what it is. In what was the story weak? There are parademons or whatever. Batman try to reassemble the team. Then they decide to resurrect superman because even as a team they can't take save the world. Really ? And they fight, they win... For a movie I was waiting for, for a very long time, I was underwhelmed. I didn't have as much fun as I thought I would. It was still enjoyable. Don't get me wrong, but I expected more.
Nice easter eggsThere were some nice easter eggs. One very famous, the Flash/Superman race at the end.
Old themes were used, like the Batman animated series theme and the old superman theme. The Batman animated series is one of my favorite, if not my favorite incarnation of batman. So it was nice to have these little references. I am sure they were many others but I don't remember much. We saw for a second a green lantern and probably so many others.
The humor in it was good, but the movie as a whole was not very memorable. In a weird way, I think I preferred Batman V Superman because even though there were some strange things, the story hold its own better and there were some very memorable scenes. In a few words, Justice league was fun but not as great as it could have been, and from far. So as a DC fan, I was a little let down but I still had a good time watching it. Let's hope they do a better story next time.
