After the success of Wonder Woman, a lot of fans have been anticipating the team up of the DC Heroes in Justice League. But the question is.. did the film live up its hype?

“Justice League,” the newest DC Comics superhero flick directed by Zack Snyder, is lighter and definitely better than the last one as well as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Now, with every good thing.. there’s always a “but”. I mean, you can’t have it all, right? Unless you’re Wonder Woman! The movie also marks a pretty big step down from the highs of the previous DC film, Wonder Woman. When Gal Gadot’s charming Amazon got her first solo film this year, there were a lot of DC aficionados who finally saw some light in the DC universe.  After the end of Christian Bale Batman franchise, it was the first ray of hope which indicated that DC studios was headed in the right direction. Justice League let the ray shine, but it’s also not a big feat either.

JL1

Directed by Zack Snyder with an assist from Joss Whedon, Justice League gets a big balance from the 2 directors. Yin and Yang. The film kicks off with the world mourning the death of Superman. The whole world was dark and gloomy. Sans Man of Steel, Batman and Wonder Woman are down to 2. To top that, a swarm of flying locust mech demons are buzzing around town with a huge threat to humanity. Our heroes are in dire need of help to form a squad to take down these monsters. Bruce and Diana head off to find fresh recruits to take down the menaces. Join Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg.

JL3

For the first half of the film, Justice League has given both old and new audiences a flashback or “previously on DC Universe” preview to keep everyone up to date on what’s happening. The pace of Justice League, which is about two hours feels so light compared to previous superhero films which had fluctuating climaxes and rising actions. Director Zack Snyder gave us beautiful cinematography and visuals which is a treat for all.

JL2

One big thing you’ll notice about Justice League is that the studio obviously lightened the mood, made things funnier and added more Marvel film elements (Hi Joss Whedon) compared to the heavy and serious tones of other DC films. It’s a good thing, but it also made the smaller story arcs shine compared to the main plot of film. Hopefully DC films will get Wonder Woman’s magic again. Unfortunately, Justice League isn’t one of them. Justice League isn’t in the same league as Wonder Woman, but still enjoyable for a casual fan like me. Still worth watching. I’m probably saying this because of the swoon-worthy men in the flick.

Be sure to catch our Justice League heroes on the big screen this weekend in cinemas nationwide.
