Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder's Justice League ★★★★★

"I'm not broken, and I'm not alone."
"They wanted me back for a reason, and I have to find out why."

Zack Snyders Justice League is the greatest comic book film of all time and pure comic book fun. 

Zack Snyder's Justice League is pure DC at its best. This is a perfect representation of all the characters this film has involved. With a very well done run time of FOUR HOURS it gives so much depth to the characters we all love and want to see. I don't want to talk about the fucking shit show that 2017 was and how awful it treated Zack and everyone else involved on the film. We all know it's a piece of garbage and I would like to leave it at that. The four hour run time does not drag at all, not even for a little bit. It fleshes out these main heroes so much, the defenders of earth. Cyborg is definitely the heart of the film. His origin story is so tragic and he gets you right in the heart. Wonder Woman once again just proves to be so amazing and I hope she can inspire any young girl. Aquaman's struggles with trying to find his fit as a ruler of Atlantis and a human is done so well. He is trying to find his place in all of this and it is such a well done concept. Batman continues to prove how men are still good and we can all recover from the pit. How we can all come back from our darkest times. Finally, Superman is an inspiration to us all. Doing our dead, proving to be good and helping. That is who Superman is and that is who all these beautiful characters are.

This film is an adrenaline pumper like no other. It managed to keep me on my feet at every turn. No matter how tired I was this film just kept me PULLED in. The action is some of the best I have ever seen. The R rating is done so well while not being too distracting. The long fight scenes with minimal cuts and the usage of slow mow helps prove how amazing this action is. Wonder Woman has some of the best fights I have ever seen in my life. The pacing of this film for such a long run time is absolutely phenomenal and is top tier. It always knows when something is too long and this film is such tightly knitted it's a marvel to witness.

Snyder's DC films have this narrative about them that they are too “dark” or “unfaithful”, but I would beg to argue about the opposite. Zack Snyder’s Justice League is a perfect representation of this. Batman isn't some murdering psychopath, his whole arc is him coming out of his deep pit. He has his faith restored by Superman, proving that men are still good. Zack Snyder's Justice League has some amazing and well timed humor and is incredibly light while having its dark moments still. It is a perfect balance that I have only seen done a couple of times well before.

Speaking of dark, you can’t forget the JAW DROPPING villains. Steppenwolf is such a badass. I'm not gonna over exaggerate and lie, he is just so cool. He is violent and has a very good motivation for his villainy. What is that motivation you may ask, well, Darksied. Darksied is one of the best villains in comic book history and in his little screen time he just steals the show. Everything he does is some of the best to ever grace a screen and I HOPE we can see more of him. Lex is once again amazing in his short scene with such a badass Deathstroke. Finally the final villain, Jared Leto Joker. I HATE Jared Leto Joker in Suicide Squad (2016), but in this scene? Oh my god I am in love. He had one of the best conversations I have ever watched and I want more of this content. It is such a compelling interaction between Batman and he steals the show.

In conclusion, this is a film so many people can enjoy. Comic Book nerds or regular people will love this movie. Please stream this on whatever it's available in your country, everyone worked so hard to make this become a reality. Zack Snyder's Justice League is truly a masterpiece and hopefully the beginning of our generations LOTR.
