Justice League Early Buzz and Reactions from 21 Film Critics

The advanced screenings for film critics have begun for Warner Bros.’s Justice League (2017). Justice League was always going to be a superhero movie on the fence between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Avengers because of multiple factors: lack of origin stories for The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg, over-reliance on CGI, etc. Would the film have a strong narrative though, a well-written villain, compelling characterization for its superheroes, and all those other elements that make great superhero films stand out.

Their full reviews are embargo until next week but the critics have spoken. Read their truncated reactions to Justice League below.

Justice League‘s plot synopsis: “Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

Zack Snyder‘s Justice League stars Ciarán Hinds, J.K. Simmons, Jeremy Irons, Willem Dafoe, Shalini Peiris, Jared Leto, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jesse Eisenberg, Kiersey Clemons, Henry Cavill, Amber Heard, and Amy Adams.

    Talk about begrudging reviews. I guess if this movie was a Marvel film, critics woujld be praising it to the sky.

  • If it were good they would praise it.
