So the general consensus seems to be ‘mixed, but better than BvS’.

Using my incredibly scientific methods I’m going to aggregate those reviews and calculate an overall score of 64%.

(Take that, Rotten Tomatoes.)


#23

So to go by those review thumbnails, it’s overstuffed with a lot of disparate elements that don’t all totally work, like basically every other movie these days, and the Guardian could not be convinced that Ben Affleck was actually Batman.


#24

But given the reception to BvS, as a person who enjoyed it - I’d angle that as “worse than BvS in the ways that count”.


#25

Right now the metacritic score currently sits at 51. The breakdown shows mostly mixed but there are a lot more positives than negatives. So, I guess that’s something. Not that that sways my eagerness to watch this movie. Been waiting on a Justice League movie since I saw the animated series. :smile:


#26

Apparently the films spoils one of its own surprises by billing Henry Cavill second during the opening credits.


#27

From the Telegraph review:

Batman and his alter ego Bruce Wayne are once again played by Ben Affleck, but his earnest, striving, Just For Men-box version of the character here is all but unrecognisable from the machine-gun-toting hungover gargoyle in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Which made me think of what you wrote when the first trailer for this dropped:

Once again, superhero movies are getting reviewed exactly how we thought they would?


#28

Good!


#29

I call it character progression. :wink:


#30

Apparently, the Flixter app is showing the RT score due to an oversight. Not pretty.


#31

WB: Hey Ben, try to make some jokes this time while you’re promoting our Movie? We don’t want you going viral for looking like you hate the film.

BA: Too easy!


#32

I can’t get the app to load. I wonder if this crashed them.

Edit: The app is back up now but there is no rating for Justice League now.


#33

I think it’s fashionable to shit on DC movies with Wonder Woman being the exception because, well, it’s the very first Wonder Woman movie.

Anyway, I’ll be seeing it Friday. I actually think I’ll not even read the reviews. I want my viewing pristine.


#34

Same here. I was actually trying to look up times over the weekend.


#35

Something a bit more fun and positive:


#36

Well, you know people say - “every commercial is good commercial” :smiley:

Anyway, can’t wait the Friday. Hope that the movie will turn up decent, if a little better than BvS.


#37

Whew. Well, I saw articles from CBR and others already flaunting it - so cat is out of the bag.,


#38

What a storm in a teacup. I’m not sure what’s so egregious about what he said. If anything, he’s being ultra-Jezabel and suggesting that all men are scum. Guy can’t win.


#39

Waiting till opens here.

Let you know on Friday how it turns out.

(Yeah, i know all of you are really waiting for my review… It´s scary guys :yum:)

I know, I think it’s the very silly end of the spectrum. He should hundered per cent know not to bring that stuff up but everyone does know fishnets are awesome, surely.
