MOVIE REVIEW : JUSTICE LEAGUE

CAST:Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J.K Simmons and Ciaran Hinds
DIRECTOR:Zack Snyder

​I wanted to share my general thoughts on the film, but in case you’re still unclear about just what Justice League is about, here’s the official synopsis:

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.

It’s the cinematic version of a page-turner, akin to feverishly flipping through the pages of a newly purchased and highly anticipated comic book issue so that, before you know it, you’ve already consumed the whole thing before your parents’ car pulls into the driveway, just in time to start over and read it again. Justice League simultaneously feels like a solid live-action version of some of best moments from the excellent animated series of the same name. 

Ben Affleck continues to be a better Batman and Bruce Wayne them people want to give him credit for, and this is the closest we’ve seen him to true blue Batman after the murdery rage of Batman v Superman. Henry Cavill is without a doubt the best he’s ever been allowed to be as the Man of Steel, refreshingly sunny and earnestly heroic. He feels like classic Superman. 

Wonder Woman is both a clutch player and a joy of the film thanks to Gal Gadot and her irrepressible on-screen spark.
Ezra Miller did a great jon as flash. Ezra’s turn as the flash will no doubt earn a legion of fans, he’s endearing in his innocence and gets the bulk of the good one-liners

Cyborg was good and aquaman was just splendid. His dialogue delivery, his attitude were amazing.

Each character gets moments to shine and make a positive lasting impression.

There are some cons in the movie like the reshoots were clearly visible in Superman’s moustache removal.

The CGI at some parts were in necessarily excess like the last flight, CGI on Steppenwolf was not that good but Ciaran Hinds did a great job as Steppenwolf.

But this film is a fascinating one, an entertaining one, and often, a fun one.

Give it a try if you are avid comic books movie fan.

I give 3.5 stars out of 5.
