FoCC Review: Justice League

By Boukenred

The age of superheroes is truly here , with the world’s greatest super heroes from the DC Universe uniting In Justice League. The film brings together stars Ben Affleck ( Batman/Bruce Wayne), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman / Diana Prince), Jason Mamoa (Aquaman / Arthur Curry), Ezra Miller (The Flash / Barry Allen), Ray Fisher (Cyborg / Victor Stone), and Henry Cavill (Superman / Clark Kent) for their first cinematic team-up. Also joining them in this film are Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon).

The movie picks up where the story was left off from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bruce Wayne, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of meta humans to stand against a newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may be too late to save the planet from an assault catastrophic proportion.

Both Bruce and Diana focus on the idea on recruiting the team of metahumans, however, while each have different motivations in their recruitment efforts. Bruce’s motivation is driven by the loss of Superman and how the world needs him. Diana is a loner and helps when she is needed but prefers to stay out of the spotlight.

The recruitment effort ramps up when an extraterrestrial threat emerges. The three newcomers to the team, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg (Jason Mamoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher), also have their fair share of their screen time. There is enough to provide a glimpse to their own backstories.

Unlike Zack Snyder’s previous DCEU films, the running time for Justice League doesn’t feel dragged out; instead, it’s time-progression feels natural and enjoyable to sit through.

Overall, this would be a DCEU film that many fans can enjoy. Also, be sure to stick around for the post-credits of from the movie at the end. Audiences will be satisfied by what this film has to deliver.

Justice League hits theaters November 17th.
