‘Justice League’ Review: Dir. Zack Snyder (2017)

16 November 2017 3:31 AM, PST

Justice League review: Warner Brothers and DC go all-in with their first proper superhero ensemble movie, but how does it fare after a series of lackluster stand-alone efforts?

Justice League review by Luke Ryan Baldock.

You can’t just drop a superhero team-up movie into cinemas and hope to avoid comparisons with Marvel. It’s a sad fact and one that has haunted the DC universe for quite some time.
