Zack Snyder's Justice League

Zack Snyder's Justice League ★★★½

What the fucking fuck?

As y’all know, I’m not a big fan of Snyder’s DCEU movies, I was one of the people who didn’t have faith in this cut, I thought this was just gonna be a SLIGHTLY better version of whatever the fuck we got in 2017 but boy, did Snyder really go through a redemption arc because I genuinely liked this (?) 

Maybe it’s because I hate the theatrical version or maybe because this movie flows better and has a heart. Not only that but it actually gives characters more personality and a reason for being there other than ‘because the plot said so’; for example: Cyborg, Lois Lane and Steppenwolf. 

Bruh, let’s talk about Cyborg. In the Whedon cut, he was a dude who hated himself, that was it. He’s a much different and way better character in this cut. His origin story and self loath is explored in a scene that legit nearly made me cry. Me crying at a scene in a Snyder movie? Yeah, I don’t believe it as well. 

The action is also much better this time around, the script is definitely more human and the whole film contains a lot of badassery as well as beautiful humane moments that are made even better with the impactful OST. 

This ain’t a perfect film though. Flash is still an annoying fuck in this, the CGI is unpredictable because sometimes it can be the best CGI I’ve ever seen in a movie and sometimes it can look like a PS2 game. It’s always changing. The jokes in this are also meh and Batman/Ben Affleck looks really bored. Dude looks like he just wants to get it over with, his best scene legit takes place in a dream sequence (a 10/10 sequence). His presence throughout the rest of the movie is so meh. 

Also, the classic Snyder slow mo is used in almost every scene like Snyder, you need to chill. 

Another big problem is how this movie takes TOO long to get to the point. The plot is the simplest thing ever but it takes an hour and a half for the plot to progress. Majority of that hour doesn’t even focus on the characters, that happens later on so the whole first act drags quite a bit. 

Anyways, that’s it. Woah, long review. Shocker, I know but I had to explain my thoughts because my followers know me and are probably shocked by the fact that I gave this film a positive review. In conclusion, Snyder, I have faith in you again, I’m glad your vision is finally out there for other people to see and enjoy.
