"Justice League" Movie Review
Just like how the Superman vows to always be there when humanity needs him most, there will always be fans that defend the the existence of yet another unimpressive DCEU film.
Coming off of critical praise for the Wonder Woman film that I thought was less than mediocre, this team-up installment could've been the perfect opportunity to capitalize on positive momentum and course-correct a string of, at best, hit or miss action films. Instead, Justice League relies heavily on half baked aspects like petty and sporadic comedy, disappointing new characters, and CGI that most video game companies outgrew a decade ago.
And then, just when I think villains couldn't get any worse than Ares in Wonder Woman, Steppenwolf rises to the challenge. Justice League's portrayal of him is so cliche, it's embarrassing to watch these supposedly top notch superheroes lose against this cookie cutter behemoth over and over again.
The fans that support this deserve better, because when it comes down to it, Justice League is an uncoordinated team and film, and both are clueless at how to function without the invincibility of Superman. These superheroes might be "All In", but when it comes to this cinematic universe, I'm out.
