I was actually pretty excited about going to see Justice League at the cinema. While some of the movies in the DC Cinematic Universe have been a bit hit and miss, I’ve still been enjoying seeing the journey they’re taking.
It was nice to see the backgrounds of the Flash and Aquaman, though I felt that a lot more depth could have been shown when it came to Aquaman. There were hints of a lot of conflict between him and his people, but those hints were kind of lost in everything else that was going on.
While I am kind of biased towards the actor for the Flash in the television series, I did actually really like him in the movie. There were some very good elements of humour involving him and while I wouldn’t have said this film was quite as engaging as the Marvel Universe team-ups, I was very focused on the movie and it did draw me in.
It was kind of necessary to watch Batman Vs. Superman, as the film is almost a direct sequel to that. Ben Afleck was quite good as Batman; better than he was in Batman Vs. Superman, I felt. And it was nice to see the personal lives of Barry and Victor. I really liked Victor and it was nice to see his relationship with his father. I couldn’t help but feel some empathy for what he was going through, but it was good to see that he was still trying to work with the others.
It was also good to get to see the Amazons, but I felt there was an element of the soldiers being thrown away and it was nearly impossible to care about them, as they just seemed to keep on coming and the ones who died seemed to be expendable.
There was a lot of good action in this movie and I enjoyed seeing the main characters relating to each other. In the future, I would be interested in re-watching this movie. And I plan to buy it on DVD.
If you watch this movie, make sure you stay till the end, as there is an extra scene.
