Trivia

Director Zack Snyder and his wife producer Deborah Snyder stepped down from finishing the film, after the suicide of Zack Snyder's daughter in March 2017. They tried to remain on the film as a way to work through the difficulty, but decided after two months to step away from the project to spend time with their family. Joss Whedon, who had signed on for Batgirl, took over as director, managing additional scenes that need to be included in the final cut. Warner Brothers have stated that Joss will direct and write in the same style as Zack so there won't be any tonal shifts or obvious changes in style. However, Joss Whedon controversially fired Zack Snyder's composer Junkie XL, and replaced him with Danny Elfman. See more »

The underdog surprises! DC's Justice League is one thrilling ride!
13 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the entire slate of DC Films universe depending on this movie's success, the studio just couldn't afford another Suicide Squad or BvS. Fortunately, Justice League proved to be just what the studio needed; two hours of jam-packed fun, action and entertainment!

Until now, the response to DC Films universe has been mixed, to say the least. With many believing Wonder Woman to be a one-hit-wonder, no one actually expected DC to recapture that magic. And you wouldn't be wrong to not have faith in DC; from extensive reshoots to the executive shake-up and replacing the director mid-production, WB has given us every reason to root against them.

I too, expected the worst, a repeat of BvS. Past DC movies(except Wonder Woman), have been pretty dark, uneven and incoherent. But everyone can breathe a sigh of relief now because thankfully, Justice League has a much leaner story and a lighter tone. This movie isn't just for the die-hard DC fans. From kids to families, everyone's gonna have a blast watching this in the cinemas. And now that I think of it, Justice League just might be the most efficient franchise-saving, course-correcting sequel, of all time.

I know this is gonna be one of the first few reviews on here so I'm gonna be super-careful not to spoil anything but, let me just say that no trailer or TV spot can prepare you for this movie. Be ready to have your mind blown. There are a lot of surprises in the movie and thankfully, DC kept them all secret this time around. Also, good move on DC's end to not release a 100 different TV spots this time(not joking, studios do this). I'd say about 80% of the movie was kept out of the promos.

Can't help but praise Zack Snyder's and Joss Whedon's work on this movie. Those guys did a fantastic job. And let me assure you, you can't tell which scene was shot by which director. There's the same tone throughout the movie. But with that being said, if you're familiar with Zack's usage of subtle humor and his shooting style, you'll feel his presence in 80-85% of the movie. In short, it's Zack's movie. Period. Also, quick shout-out to DC Films pres. Geoff Johns for bringing back hope and optimism to the DC movies.

Talking about the cast, really strong performances all around. The banter and interactions between all the characters, specially the League, is just amazing. The way the story develops and evolves each character is really mesmerizing and by the end of the movie, you'll be counting days till Justice League 2. Believe me when I say this, the cast is the backbone of this movie. And Although everyone was perfect, expect Jason Momoa(Aquaman), Ezra Miller(Flash) and one 'boy scout' to steal the show.

As with any movie, Justice League has a few weak sides too. First and foremost, the villain is your run-of-the-mill destroy-the-planet kind of guy. And sadly, that kind of diminishes any stakes in the story and kills the suspense and tension. Secondly, the movie had to fit everything into two hours(as mandated by the CEO of WB. Thanks a lot, dude!), so the rapid-fire pace of the movie can make parts of the movie seem uneven and too fast.

The movie's score was pretty underwhelming(sorry, Danny Elfman), which is a first for DC. I understand you don't bring in a guy like Danny to just remix and re-use Hans Zimmer's music but doing away with all of Hans' great music felt like an insult. Don't get me wrong, it was cool to hear the old Batman and Superman themes again but all his new stuff was pretty generic.

And last but not the least, for a $300 million movie, the CGI seemed pretty bad. Especially towards the final battle, the whole thing had way too much CGI for my liking. Really wish they had gone for simpler designs and more practical effects.

All in all, DC's Justice League is one heck of a fun and entertaining ride that finds a fine balance between all its characters all the while avoiding the team-up movie cliché of "people who don't get along forced to work together to save the world".

Bottom-line: In what might be the most important year (and movie) in DC's history, the studio didn't just deliver, it left the audience wanting more. This movie is a triumph, it's an accomplishment, it's the goddamn Justice League!
