That's not usually the way I go about here. I tend to make my opinion matter foremost( I owe that to myself) and give credit to the critiques from top critics later. 

I tried that for Phase 1, and it was done so badly that I lost confidence in DC's ability to contribute to the medium.  If they want me to invest my attention in their sprawling cinematic franchise, they will have to consistently produce quality movies (I owe it to myself to have standards if I'm going to watch a dozen interconnected movies).  Until they prove themselves able, they do not have the privilege of my time.  It's been almost eight years and they haven't even been able to release two Certified Fresh movies in a row, whereas half of their movies are rightfully considered terrible (Source:  https://www.rottentomatoes.com/franchise/dc_comics ).  

Disney managed to release three CF Star Wars movies in roughly a third of the time.  It shouldn't have been hard for DC to do the same.  Oh, well.  Maybe they'll have their act together by 2023.

The last thing I'd say about Disney's Star Wars is that they "have their act together", but whatever RottenTomatoes says I guess.

However low you think that bar, it speaks poorly of DC to be unable to clear it.  The lower the bar, the less of an excuse DC has.  



DC execs really did a number on their own megafranchise. It took the likes of Zack Snyder and Greg Berlanti years to salvage their reputation. Who knows where DC would be without their awesome DCTV and DCAU sectors because DCEU really shit the bed. Aquaman, Joker, Shazam and wonder woman make me excited but then something like WW2 comes along to bring me down to earth. Thankfully I'm enjoying stuff like Superman and Lois, Black lightning, Doom Patrol, Young Justice, Harley Quinn and hopefully Green Lantern soon



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

It was decent for what it was. Compared to the original, a lot better but wasn't a hard task. Compared to many Marvel offerings, weird and convoluted.



Hmm, pie.

Good movie, a solid 8/10 for me. Watched it in one go surprisingly.

I don't think this would have worked in a cinema, so I'm really happy Snyder got to do literally anything he wanted with this version.

Im a fan of Snyder, but he needs to stop listening to detractors and stay true to his vision. At the end of the day people will always find fault with it, but at least it will be cohesive.

Also, WTF was Whedon thinking??? He literally scrapped a whole movie and did ridiculous reshoots, changed important plot lines and removed all sense of character development. Wow.

Really wish we could see a continuation of this Justice League, even if it continues on HBO Max with a limited cinema release. Perhaps WB can start a new DC Cinema Universe with younger characters all round, simultaneously.

I really enjoyed it. It was a far better film than the theatrical cut. This is what the movie should have been like from the get-go. Considering that half the team was formally introduced in this movie, it needed more than two hours in order to have proper character development. This movie did proper justice for the team members introduced in the film, especially Cyborg and the Flash.

Here's hoping that this does well enough that it helps the DCEU get put back on track. WB mismanaged the series, but this is an opportunity to right the ship. The series has a lot of potential, especially now thanks to how the story in the Snyder Cut played out.

My understanding is that this version is basically fan-fiction, ie completely non-cannon, and that none of its plotlines or events are going to be continued.



No, it's exclusive to HBO Max which I have no sub for. May watch it at some point when HBO Max has enough content that interests me to justify subbing for a few months.

I had some vague interest in seeing what was changed but once I knew it was 4 hours that interest died. I can't envision spending that long on watchin a new version of a movie I didn't like the first time.

It's not a movie, persay. It's a miniseries of 8 episodes that can be watched as one movie. 

It was originally meant to be two movies, each 2 hours long or so, but a bunch of crap happened and we got the Theatrical cut under 2 hours. 

I'm only about halfway through it now and...still don't like it. It's better than the theatrical cut, but it's still so dumb. Seeing Darkseid and then watching Infinity war is like...how does anyone excuse visuals, acting, or writing this bad? I don't know how someone can see what Marvel does and then sink 300-500 million into this and say 'yeah, that's good enough'. 

At best, 4/10 so far (Again, only about half way through it).

Watched it and found it to be extremely satisfying compared to the theatrical version. I give it a 9/10 

The best part are the last 15 minutes, too bad Snyder won’t be part of the upcoming DC titles.

I do prefer a lot DC compared to Marvel, but Live action movies are way better with the latter.

I hope WB execs can work and develop their Live action movies better and also try to establish some equilibrium and continuation. They have been doing a lot of “reboots” with Batman and other characters in Films and series.
