I was really hoping for a more enthusiastic outcome, but this is what we got. I'm still excited to see the movie, and I'm not going to let this opinion sway how I feel. I'll wait to see it for myself before I judge it.
This might not be the reaction that Warner Bros. was hoping for. But, In the end, it doesn't sound like a complete disaster! It seems like it's going to be a fun movie that the fans will enjoy. Read through the reactions below and let us know what you think about what these critics are saying.
SO I saw #JusticeLeague -twice. Still under embargo, but: This is a fun superhero flick. Funny but still hero adventure. Reminds me of JL Unlimited ep. Likable interaction amongst recognizable heroes. There is a villain problem (no worse than Marvel's) - @aaronsagers— SYFY WIRE (@SyfyWire) November 10, 2017
I have a lot to say about ‘Justice League’ but will wait till it’s released to really get into it. But two important things to know: stay till the very end of the credits and Jason Momoa (@PrideofGypsies) is awesome as Aquaman. pic.twitter.com/Pg6cKCZAEo— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) November 10, 2017
I saw #JusticeLeague! Here’s what I thought. There are ton of things I’d change but it comes down to this: I had a blast! I got to see the team together and I had fun watching it. Ezra Miller steals the movie and #WonderWoman was perfect! pic.twitter.com/rgCI9fUuTs— Jenna Busch (@JennaBusch) November 10, 2017
#JusticeLeague is a fun, bumpy ride that succeeds in character, but fails in narrative. It’s a mixed bag of execution that’s saved by the actors, who rise above the shortcomings to deliver an engaging, funny and hopeful, yet flawed, entry to the DCEU. @joblocom— Paul Shirey (@arcticninjapaul) November 10, 2017
Justice League is not a perfect movie. It has story "flaws" and a simple, CGI villain.— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) November 10, 2017
BUT, more importantly, it gets the heroes right. Every member of the League is fantastic and it's tough to choose a favorite.
It's a ton a fun, start to finish.
Justice League is the super heroes we've been waiting for. Aquaman rocks. Cyborg is bad-ass. The Flash is awesome. Wonder Woman builds from an already great standalone. Batman assembles them and it's great.— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) November 10, 2017
Justice League feels kind of like a re-launch of the DC world in live-action. You walk away wanting more of every hero, including Justice League 2 and standalone films.— Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) November 10, 2017
Justice League is better than expected, but not a home run. The interaction between the team is a lot of fun. The film sends the DCEU in a hopeful direction in line with where the brand should be headed. Flash and Aquaman steal the show. Cyborg and villain are the weak links.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 10, 2017
#JusticeLeague is better than BvS and #SuicideSquad - it's lean, mean & packed w/ superhero action. I dug most of its lighter moments & I think it has one of the best action sequences ever in a DCEU movie. And of course Wonder Woman steals the show. pic.twitter.com/rW3UjpBUMk— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) November 10, 2017
#JusticeLeague is clunky & uneven as hell, but it also gets the characters right and has a lot of fun along the way. When it’s over DC’s vision for these heroes going forward will make sense.— Conner Schwerdtfeger (@ConnerWS) November 10, 2017
It’s a very small but very vital step forward. I dug it. pic.twitter.com/FrWkhBe69v
Nothing could save JUSTICE LEAGUE from its loud, ugly, tacky self. Not Wonder Woman, not wide-eyed Ezra Miller, not Joss Whedon's quippy teardown & rebuild. And Henry Cavill's mustache is an actual issue; they gave him Uncanny Valley Face. Oof, guys. It's a rough ride— Josh L. Dickey (@JLDlite) November 10, 2017
Bottom line: JUSTICE LEAGUE is awesome!— Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) November 10, 2017
ZACK SNYDER’s film is filled with so many moments that had me geeking out and crying nerd tears. When an action scene/hero moment hits, the film is firing on all cylinders.
Still love Affleck’s BATMAN. My fav Batman actor since Keaton. pic.twitter.com/YKZTbVJL7D
JUSTICE LEAGUE! It's okay. Narratively it's a mess, the stakes don't work & the villain isn't great. HOWEVER, the heroes ARE great, it's funny, & there's some surprisingly effective character work. I didn't love it, but there are enough good pieces to excite me for the future. pic.twitter.com/OY4ARJ5vDY— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) November 10, 2017
