A DC counterpart to Marvel’s The Avengers, Batman and Wonder Woman construct a team that consists of Victor Stone a.k.a Cyborg, Barry Allen a.k.a Flash, and Arthur Curry a.k.a Aquaman to combat the nearly unstoppable Steppenwolf from destroying Earth with his army of “parademons.” A film that oscillates between good and bad at every turn, I was once again (as has been the case for most superhero fare) bored to death by the plot and its villain. I was, however, mostly happy with the cast (though Miller as Flash was overly silly at times). The members of the Justice League were given distinct personalities, and that in itself makes the proceedings much more enjoyable. Fisher and Momoa especially do a nice job with what, in my opinion, are lame characters. The CGI was weak though, and that’s shocking for, “one of the most expensive films of all-time.” I’m willing to watch more adventures with these characters, but find a filmmaker with some unique ideas.
