In the aftermath of the death of Superman, Bruce Wayne takes it upon himself to bring together a team of super-powered individuals to take his place as defender of Earth.
Following on directly from the actually rather good Wonder Woman, Justice League falls straight back into the trap that every other DC movie that preceded it fell into; namely putting special effects and action scenes before coherent narrative and well written characters. There is literally no chemistry between any of the heroes, and even the banter written by Avengers Assemble writer/director Joss Whedon consistently misses the mark because the characterisation just isn't there. They are merely introduced one by one and then immediately thrown into fight sequences that follow the formula of an unconvincing Affleck …

Here we go again - just when it seemed the DCU had turned things around with Wonder Woman, they take another step back. While Justice League isn't a gloomy mess like Batman v. Superman or a wild mess like Suicide Squad, it instead is just a kind of average outing - the villain is forgettable, many of the jokes fall flat and what is supposed to be this ultimate team to rival The Avengers instead feels like an unfocused mess.
First, lets see what's good here - new characters Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) are a very welcome addition. Both get decent screen time, have some fun moments, some serious moments and feel suitably fleshed out.

To be fair, you did, but some things are not enough. Well here we are again folks. Just when 'Wonder Women' got things back on tracks for DC, now it takes a huge step back. With the many re shoots which somehow made the movie much worst. It's not a disaster like 'Suicide Squad', but with each failure of DC films makes 'Man of Steel' look pretty good by each flop.
Okay lets talk about the actual movie.
Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller were the two stand outs for me. All the scenes were pure gold and featured the most interesting action sequences in the film. While I didn't find any of his jokes or awkward personality that funny, I actually did like Ezra Miller as Flash. Jason Momoa as Aquaman was too awesome to handle. I'm looking forward to seeing both solo films in the …

******SPOILERS BELOW PLEASE BEWARE SPOILERS BELOW*****
The Justice League is finally here after a notoriously troubled production and the exit of its original director Zack Snyder under tragic circumstances. Avengers maestro Joss Whedon assumed the role at WB's behest and while his directorial experience doesn't tie all the loose ends together, Justice League remains an entertaining if unevenly assembled superhero movie.
The plot picks up after Superman's death and the world is now at risk of another alien invasion. This time by the bloodthirsty tyrant Steppenwolf (a CGI Ciaran Hinds). Batman and Wonder Woman race to assemble a new team of superpowered humans (Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman) to confront this otherworldly threat.
If anything is to be commended about Justice League, it's …
