I heard the critics and all of their opinions on Justice League. They said it wasn’t a movie worth watching, that it was a huge step backwards from Wonder Woman, and I believed them, that’s why it took me until yesterday to see it. And now that I’ve seen it I’m so glad I did. I have to admit, I enjoyed Justice League immensely. I watched the entire film, credits and all, thinking at any point that the movie was going to turn south and I was going to regret ever coming to see this superhero flick but it never happened! The story was simple yet cohesive, the characters were great, and yes there were flaws but overall I had a great time watching this movie. So, on that note I’m going to tell you all of the things I did and didn’t like about this film. Enjoy!
SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen Justice League yet and you would rather stay in the dark about the movie’s premise and outcomes I would advise you to discontinue reading this now. Okay, I thank you for acknowledging this warning. Now to the review.

I watched Batman vs. Superman for the first time last year once it was available on Google Play. It came with the extended cut and the theatrical cut. Now because I heard it was such an awful film despite the fact that it grossed nearly a billion dollars I wasn’t very excited to see the film. I watched the extended version and I was pleasantly surprised. The story was cohesive enough to follow, the action was enjoyable, and the dialogue was actually interesting. Yes, there were a lot of nods to the Justice League movie coming out this November but it wasn’t annoying. By the time the movie finished I was thoroughly confused. Why were so many people saying this movie was terrible? What was I missing? Then last week I got a serious urge to watch Batman vs. Superman after the wonderful experience I had with the new Wonder Woman movie. I decided, however, to watch the theatrical cut instead of the extended cut that I watch every time. I was stunned.
The theatrical cut was terrible! It felt like a puzzle that was missing half of its pieces. The scenes didn’t mold together, the direction of the movie was terrible, and it was so confusing I was confused and I’ve watched the movie over five times. Now the final battle with Doomsday was perfectly okay (mostly because of Wonder Woman who was truly the shining light of the film.) The rest of the film, however, was beyond terrible. After it finished I completely understood why people hated this film so much. It was a truly awfully edited movie.
If you have watched Batman vs. Superman and haven’t seen the extended cut you should definitely check it out. It’s thirty-one minutes longer, that’s how much was taken out of the movie. It’ll completely shed a different light on the film and you just might actually like it like I did.
Thank you for reading my post. Have a great day!
