WHAT I LIKE?

Justice League was a sign of relief after the disappointments of Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad. Overall, it was a movie that has a consistency in terms of superhero formula. It was actually faithful to its main source. This superhero universe made a mark with its brand of action and entertainment. The plot was easy to understand and it was smoothly narrated despite the pressure of introducing 3 new characters in the universe. With its short running time, it was entertaining and engaging most of the time. I loved Wonderwoman and The Flash in the film. The action sequences were good and there were some impressive visual engineering especially some of slow-motion scenes. Generally, I am pleased and I am looking forward for the next movie in the DC universe.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Justice League lack the charm and dynamism that Marvel invest long time ago in majority of their films. Because of its short running time, I feel like some of the elements were sacrificed. One of which is the character build-up of the Villain and the 3 new characters in the team. Also, how I wish the movie was less CGI-sh. There were some pretty bad visual editing. Hope they will improve this moving forward. But, I still loved Justice League.

Batman V Superman

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice could either please or disappoint a large variety of audience. The Marketing of the film is truly effective as this drew more than enough hype for it to become one of the most anticipating superheroes clash this 2016. It may disappoint action junkie types as half of the film was made to establish the plot and the premise of the whole clash spin-off. It does not bear as much as action sequences to make the film as memorable and as spectacular as other films on the same genre. Somehow, it will make you crave for more. As the storyline is as less interesting than these iconic superheroes, it is actually enjoyable as a whole (not minding the real juice). Storyline could have been presented better and the source of conflict could have been deep enough. With some forgivable CGIsh scenes and a good production design, BVS can really gather split audience reactions. Spoiler-free review but I am Team Superman forever. 3.5/5 stars.
