I think my final analysis after having watched it again at home is that I enjoyed it about as much as a JL cartoon episode or animated feature, which is to say it was fine and I liked it. That being said, the first cinematic meeting of these characters should have been something spectacular and not something that was just serviceable and okay. Oh well.

My thoughts exactly… it is a fun film, but not a great film. I’m thrilled with how much my 5 year old son loves it (and we’ve watched it probably a half dozen times already, back-back even)… and it is very watchable, and more re-watchable than MOS or BVS… but the more I watch, the more wasted potential there is… at no time did there feel like there were any real stakes in the movie.. the whole world was about to be destroyed and only 12 people knew about it? the Deleted “who was that guy?” scene was funny on… Read more »

I’m glad you and your son are bonding over the movie! Reminds me of my poor dad having to sit through multiple showings of Superman 1 and 2 back in the day haha. I agree that there didn’t seem to be any stakes especially given how hard BVS tried to have a heavy plot. It also bugged me how the characters of both Batman and Superman did a complete 180 without really showing why. All of a sudden they’re both happy and jokey. Poor Henry, I still feel he has been given the shaft the most. None of the writers… Read more »

On the contrary, there is quite a good reason to Batman and Superman’s change in their attitude. Batman feels ashamed for being responsible Superman’s death. And like he says in the end of BvS, Supes has shown him that things can be different. Maybe they went too far on his change but it didn’t happen for no reason. In the Superman part, well, if you died at a young age and could come back to life and have a 2nd chance it would probably change you (if from dead to alive isn’t a big enough change XD). It has probably… Read more »

Yeah i think the average moviegoer would have to make a lot of assumptions and do some mental gymnastics to get to that conclusion. They’re almost playing completely different characters and it doesn’t make sense. They went from this overly serious, convoluted plot of BvS to a truly candy coated plot avengers-lite version in JL. And they’re attitudes didn’t change because their characters went on some kind of journey, they were changed because they wanted the movie and characters to be more like Marvel movies. Which, at least to me, came off as obvious, shallow and disingenuous. The execs insult… Read more »

Well when a movie happens just so someone can receive a bonus, it doesn’t bode well for the quality of the film.
But I wouldn’t expect to see a JL 2 for quite some time. Which is probably a good thing.
Maybe they will make it an actual build up over several films making a logical and suspenseful reason for the JL existing.
I’m still not confident Aquaman or Shazam are going to be anything that’s going to turn this whole ship around.

While I don’t think Aquaman or Shazam are going to break any records, I have faith in both their directors. I enjoyed both Sandbergs films and James Wan has done a great job with his own conjuring universe. He was even able to come on to the 7th installment of the fast and furious franchise and make a decent entertaining movie and that required cgi-ing an actors face onto another actor. That they were able to do that with Paul Walkers likeness so well while we were stuck with moustache-gate is embarrassing. But that’s neither here nor there… both of… Read more »

While we all agree that things could have been done differently, I predict that a majority of the people that bought the JL and hadn’t seen it(and a lot that did), will conclude that the movie is no where’s near and deserved of the negative trashing that it did get. The mandated two hour run time to me was major mistake as the way it looks, many of Snyder’s cut scenes could have been added back in. Especially Superman’s. We should have gotten that as a semi directors cut.

The only one of the 3 films involving Superman I can Honestly say that about is MOS. That movie should have at least a 70% RT score. If we’re judging the other two, by filmmaking standards though, I definitely understand the bad reviews. While I applaud the ambition of BvS, the execution was terrible and the theatrical cut is not good at all. If critics were able to have reviewed the ultimate cut then I’m sure the reviews wouldnt have been as harsh. JL on the other hand is an obviously stitched together film with a generic plot, so so… Read more »

P.s. that Superman Returns has better reviews than these films should tell you exactly that they grade by filmmaking standards because that movie is the most boring Superman movie in existence, yet it was beautifully directed. My Rankings of Superman films of the last two decades (tv and animated not counted.) 1. Man of Steel (not perfect, but a great starting point). Pretty rewatchable and I own the blu-ray. 2. Justice League (at a very, very, very distant second. Will be Enjoyable enough to have on when there’s nothing else to watch on cable, but I probably won’t buy at… Read more »

I don’t hate SR nearly as much as I did back in ’06, but the scene was entirely different, which explains a lot of the positive critiques. The entire third act of that movie is a mess, but it was still a fairly crowd-pleasing movie in a market that hadn’t become completely saturated and led by the Marvel paradigm.

I didn’t dislike SR. They tried to parallel the original STM as it was still the most talked about and liked. But there hadn’t been a Superman movie out in what, 20 years? There was an order in what they were trying to do. SR first as an introduction then the next two with the action. Unfortunately things didn’t go as planned. I’m not knocking where we are now but I will stand pat that SR should have had at least a sequel.

Oh please. Stop whyning with these “Snyder blah blah blah”. You’re (not just you) always crying about it but nowadays we know much of what was cut from Snyder’s version and all of it leads us to see that all what people hated from the previous 2 movies was going to look like a Disney movie compared to Justice League. For what we know for now, Supes was going to come back as a bad guy, Batman turns into a little whyner because “he killed Superman”, Aquaman reduced to an alcoholic loser (confirmed)), Cyborg was going to be…well like he… Read more »

I don’t think Warner’s executives were necessarily in the right. Maybe from a business perspective, but even that they botched by not moving the release date. I’m far more interested in Snyder’s original version, with all that entails. Conflict is what characters need to overcome. It probably wouldn’t have gone over well with the general audience, but I’ll take that over the paper-thin characterizations we had in the final product.

The execs were the ones who put Snyder in charge in the first place so I don’t really understand your argument. They were clearly not happy after MoS and made him shoehorn Batman in and then that didn’t work. instead of taking time to find a director who was better suited for the material they pressed ahead with justice league, fired him midway through and we ended up with a jumbled movie anyway. I’m not going to give them any sort of ‘credit’ for realizing midway through their THIRD film with him at the helm that His vision wasn’t right.… Read more »

I’m curious; I don’t like Man of Steel as much as other people, though that’s primarily because of Goyer, but do you think if WB hadn’t interfered, Snyder would’ve made a better MoS2? I mean, after all, one’s vision changes based on what they have to work with. The moment Batman became part of the story, Snyder (and Goyer, who did the story) would’ve had to change the entire approach, as well as the themes of the film. For one thing, we very likely wouldn’t have got this deep deconstruction that we had in BvS.

Oh don’t get me wrong, I think David Goyer is and will always be the liability when writing screenplays. I didn’t love MoS, but it worked for me as a very generic version of Superman. I liked it more than BvS and JL, Plus it’s the closest thing to the Byrne era version we have. My issue has always been that they didn’t give superman much dialogue or anything to really stand for, he just seemed more like a plot device for other characters to react to or preach to. That’s lazy writing in my opinion and basically made him… Read more »

Wow…..where did all this conformation come from? Your laying out a story line that so far hasn’t come from Snyder. At least I haven’t read such.

I have heard, from several places, everything he stated. Heck the bank explosion was in the trailer.

No, I’ve heard about those story beats as well. They’re most probably legit. I just don’t personally mind them.

I don’t know a lot of people that are really into comic books and related movies like I am. So I don’t really talk about it with anyone outside of the internet.
Friends of mine didn’t even realize the movie came out. They didn’t even know there was a JL movie.

I rented it for another viewing; it has a few scenes that are really quite good, but they’re not really enough to recommend the film as a whole.
I don’t *want* to be hater or whatever, but I do expect a good film. And now I’m just done with this iteration of the franchise.
For whatever it’s worth, I am glad that those who put in the hard work are getting a little more in residuals though.

Being objective doesn’t make you a hater. I don’t know where this idea came from that if you don’t love something absolutely, you’re not a real fan or a ‘hater.’ Were allowed to question the things we love.
