Hey everyone! Internet acting a fool today, but the devil’s a lie! Anyway, I went to see Justice League over the weekend. Loved it, but I do have a few things to gripe about.
Yes, I loved Justice League. I grew up watching the cartoon as a kid and now seeing Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the rest of the crew brought a happy smile to my face. I wasn’t sure if DC was going to bring Justice League to the big screen at all.
A few things to gripe about. Why in the world would DC cut the film down to an hour and so minutes? Why? We don’t want to linger on each of the character’s origins, but at least give us a small glimpse as to how The Flash and Cyborg got their powers. I can only hope that when the film comes out on Blue-ray/DVD and digital, we can get an uncut look at the movie.
The villain, Steppenwolf was just weak. Ciaran Hinds did the character the justice (haha), but I wish they could’ve done more.
Seeing Gal Gadot back as Wonder Woman was pure joy. You could not have the Justice League without Wonder Woman. She’s pretty much the glue, the heartbeat of the team. She’s just as better in BVS and has the surefire spunk she brought to her own standalone film Wonder Woman. So there was no disappointment with that.
Ben, Ben, Ben….I think you may need to hang up the Batcape. I don’t know about y’all, but I feel Ben Affleck is not into Batman anymore. He’s trying to bless his heart. Just like Bruce, Ben doesn’t know how much longer he has until the time comes to walk away from it all.
Jason Momoa brings a really cool vibe as Aquaman and he’s not bad to look at either. He holds his own against the crew as the legendary Atlantian. You get the feeling you can hang out with this dude while drinking a few beers.
Ray Fisher is a newbie to the world of superheroes. Here is a man who is trying to navigate between being human while most of the time is just a machine. Meanwhile, Fisher is navigating on how to best represent this character. With a somewhat weak script, he is proving his own against the seasoned veterans. Hopefully, he can really stretch his acting chops when Cyborg gets his standalone film.
Henry Cavill, good to see you again. Did you think Superman was gonna stay dead? Really? Back as the red cape wonder, Cavill is not left out on the fun, but what’s going on with his face?
Ezra Miller‘s The Flash is a breath of comic air. Not only can he be serious, but he brings the funny in this most of the time dead serious superhero film. This hottie is just ready to join the group, ready to do good in his life, all the while making sure he’s proving his father innocence in the murder of his mother.
I’m disappointed, but not too disappointed. I expected an action-packed superhero film and I got it. So yes, I’m happy!
In the meantime, hope you enjoy this little video of clips and things!
