Although it is Batman who rallies the troops in order to fight off Heaven-sent villain, his “partners in crime” keep up with him on the screen. The brightest shine comes from Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. The Israeli actress is a staggering fit for the comic book heroine – she’s charming and authentic as she stands out from the crowd.
A surprisingly delightful is the performance of Cyborg, probably the least known to the non-fan base of viewers. Ray Fisher catches the glimpse of self-contracted guilt of his character and doesn’t elaborate on it too much. In the end, the new additions to the bat-family were not generic as we could all expect them to be.
Expectations were flying off the roof
The film had its flaws for sure – there’s no denying that. The CGI in “Justice League” was perturbingly crappy, with the infamous “unmoustaching” of Henry Cavill as its best representation.
Nonetheless, “Justice League” has repaired mistakes of its predecessors. It still long way from what fans expect, especially given Marvel’s meticulous process of creating the expanded universe. DC is doing its best to keep up with the Joneses.
What killed this film was its inability to meet the ridiculously high expectations. Don’t believe me? Consider the success of “Wonder Woman”. DC pulled off a heroine movie, something that is light years away for Marvel. Fans felt the goosebumps, believing that the cursed studio has risen like a phoenix from the ashes they have turned into year back.
“Justice League” may not be the best attempt to revive the Bat-legend. It may not be the best introduction to new, eccentric heroes in the universe. Hell, it might be still based on a chintzy concept of world falling apart. Despite all that, there’s still an incredible jump in quality in comparison with “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice”. Someone wise once sang “always look on the bright side of life” and I encourage all you haters to do the same.
