Movie Review: Justice League
This film showcases Batman as bringing in the other superheroes and forming the Justice League. By far, this movie outshines Batman vs. Superman. However, in a world with X-men and Marvel movies, it pales.
The cast did a wonderful job, but they had bad writing, plot holes, and an illogical villain.
When the bad guy, Steppenwolf, shows up he defeats the Amazons easily. Later in the movie, Diana tells the story of how it took the Old Gods, Mankind, both Amazons and Atlantians to imprison him. However, when Steppenwolf returns and this time unites the three boxes of power, he’s no stronger than he was when this round of superheroes fought him. AND the key to his demise is one superhero that seems impossible to beat (unless you’ve got kryptonite)
To me, the movie was too easily ended. The bad guy not so tough and Superman put him down without much effort.
That’s one of the many reasons I like Marvel better than DC movies – their characters show their flaws, their weaknesses. And no one hero is all-amazingly powerful. Really, it’s like an evil six-year-old fighting an all powerful warlord. No suspense.
I did love Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman. AND enjoyed the comic relief of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / Flash
My rating 3.8 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
