Justice League (12A)

Action, Adventure, Fantasy

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

The critical consensus

It’s breezily fun at times – but, lumbered with a story that struggles to find resonance beyond its improbable plot devices, Justice League isn’t about to steal Avengers’ super-team crown.

DC’s team up extravaganza is a bust, with a vanilla plot, dire bad guy and largely failed attempts at levity. Worth watching for Wonder Woman, but little more.

Ben Affleck’s unconvincing Batman deadens the long-awaited DC adventure as superheroes team up to save planet Earth from destruction, but not boredom.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 15/11/2017

The DC gang assemble for a watchable adventure, but the villain problem persists.

As Alfred Pennyworth, the devoted butler, Jeremy Irons lends a little self-deprecating British irony. “We might not have thought this through,” he observes to Batman when one of his plans to thwart Steppenwolf doesn’t work in the way envisaged. The same observation could also be made of Snyder and his scattergun approach to Justice League.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 15/11/2017

A film constructed of epic moments that have no real lasting or cumulative dramatic effect.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 15/11/2017

Mediocrity, thy name is Justice League.

**(*)(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 16/11/2017

This efficient blockbuster dutifully serves up frenetic action-packed mayhem with a smattering of wisecracking irreverence but it feels awfully familiar and lacks the goofy fun of the recent Thor: Ragnarok.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 17/11/2017

Joss Whedon’s quips sit ill with Zack Snyder’s leaden direction, while Ben Affleck makes for an unconvincing Batman in this dire DC offering.
