[NO SPOILERS]Justice League (2017)Directed by Zack SnyderRather than waiting for my sketch to be completed, I am posting a review with a WIP shot, because I so much wanted to put up my comments about this movie!I watched this movie on Saturday morning (Prasad's Large Screen). The movie has Batman and Wonder Woman assembling a team of metahumans to face the threat of Steppenwolf, who is after the three Mother Boxes on Earth, which will allow him to take over our world.It's impossible to write about this movie without mentioning the behind-the-scenes drama of the past few months – the studio calling in Joss Whedon to complete the film after a personal tragedy forced Zack Snyder to step back, the reshoots and altered ending, and the sub-2 hour mandated runtime.Despite all of this, I felt the movie turned out very well. The characters, despite not getting enough screen time to be fleshed out (Cyborg and Aquaman particularly affected), turned out great. I loved Flash and the strongest aspect of the film for me was Wonder Woman. The villain being criticised as weak? I didn't think it came off badly. The shorter length probably focused the film on the main threat, which was good. The biggest praise I'd give, is that it was such an enjoyable comic book movie. The tone was spot on, balancing the more fantastic and realistic aspects.However, as @kashyapchandra mentioned, this was not the film that "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman" were building up to, not the film the first two trailers promised. I, like many others, would love to see a 30 min longer Zack Snyder cut, reinstating the deleted scenes, which I'm sure will be epic and better than the film we saw. It's sad that the studio isn't allowing Snyder to carry out his vision. Danny Elfman's score suited the movie well, but was very generic, and certainly nothing as epic as the work Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL did with the previous DCEU films.There are two post credit scenes, and to their credit (haha), they are effective. There was a lot to like about "Justice League", I highly recommend it. It's an 8.5/10 for me.
