Film review by Steve Duffy –
The good news is Justice League is watchable!
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes–Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash–it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Affleck returns as the robotic and ill-tempered Batman. He is still like a walking corpse.
Gal Gadot is perfect as Wonder Women, although there is less of her due to the fact that the story needs to balance the other superheroes.
Ezra Miller as the Flash is the best hero of the film, with the funniest lines. Jason Momoa’s Aquaman is forgettable.
The main problem with the film is it simply tried to do too much, and after the disaster that Batman v Superman turned out to be, I was hoping that Justice League would jump-start the DC brand, but it does not. DC has had four years to get it right since it began with Man of Steel.
