This review is going to take a slightly different direction from what I've normally done, mostly because a number of the primary discussion points for Zack Snyder's latest film in the DC Expanded Universe have already been mentioned and discussed at length. These points will definitely be brought up, but in this case, most of these things will just be from my perspective and personal opinion of what this film tries to accomplish and its biggest weaknesses. This review also doesn't seek to intentionally reignite the whole "Marvel vs. DC" argument again, because let's be honest, it's completely blown out of proportion at this point and you (the reader) are perfectly entitled to like one, the other, both, or neither. Finally, THIS WILL GO INTO SPOILERS - you've been aptly warned. With that in mind, the DC Expanded Universe has finally reached a pinnacle point in its shaky 4-year existence; the culmination of a band of superheroes united to battle a common foe. This is the first time ever that the Justice League has come together (no pun intended from its marketing scheme) in a theatrically-released film, and in their case, the stakes are high enough that they have no choice BUT to come together. The foe is Steppenwolf, an alien from another world who is searching for three mystical boxes on the planet to (you guessed it) take over the world. The universe, too, if he can pull it off. So the biggest question everyone has been asking and now answering is has the hype for Justice League paid off? Is this the film that cements the overwhelming success left behind by this summer's Wonder Woman, proving the DCEU is finally on track to do great things? The short answer: mostly no, but to some extents, I finally believe they're doing some things right.
