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. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
This movie was initially going to be split into two parts: Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two, with an alleged singular continuing story line. But by the time filming the idea of the film being in two parts seemed to have quietly gone away, and it is now rumored to be two self-contained movies with two related but separate plots. See more »
At the beginning of a movie, Wonder Woman had to stop a briefcase bomb from exploding and destroying 4 city blocks. At the last possible second she threw the bomb up through a hole in the roof. The bomb then exploded, in the air, without destroying anything.
She threw the bomb away from the people she was protecting, but the bomb didn't travel a minimum of 4 city blocks in the air. The bomb also didn't have any additional reactants/accelerants other than what was part of the bomb. It should have destroyed the building they were in and at least 2 city blocks more. See more »

Superman was a beacon to the world... Why aren't you? You're an inspiration, Diana. You don't just save people; you make them see their better selves. And yet, I'd never even heard of you until Luthor lured you out by stealing a picture of your dead boyfriend. You shut yourself down for a century, so let's not talk about me moving on!

A way too serious, totally generic, bland action film that thinks its a superhero movie.
When you think superhero films, you probably remember such hits as Iron
Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers. The last thing that comes
to mind is any DC movie that has come out in recent years. Many people
thought that after the end of the Dark Knight Trilogy that we would see
a resurgence in the DC nostalgia that made the company bigger than
Marvel at one point.
Those hopes were dashed when Man of Steel turned out to be a dark,
gritty CGI mess that tried way too hard to be relevant. The moody and
drab undertone of the film made us feel to glum to remember the old
Saturday morning cartoons that were filled with fun, adventure, and
action all rolled into one brilliantly performed show.
Next was Batman v Superman which had been hyped for three years, and
all we got was eight minutes of fighting and over two hours of talking
and exposition that we just didn't care about. Suicide Squad was
lacking in the department of character development. Instead the
producers wanted big names and flashy effects to sell the movie. That
Finally, we have this: take all the previous DC movies mentioned
(Except the Dark Knight Trilogy, the only films DC got right), put it
in a blender while adding aqua man, flash, and cyborg, blend it all
together, then turn off the lights. The resulting disaster is Justice
League. This is what you don't do with superhero films. It would be
like Joss Whedon making the Avengers in 2005 with Iron man being made
eight years later.
The movie does not follow any of the source material, instead relying
on Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot to carry the weight of the film. Everyone
else just seems to be along for the ride with none of the other
characters getting their own movie yet, so we have no idea what their
motivations for joining the Justice League are.
The film once again goes into dark and gritty territory with everything
happening at once with little to no previously known information about
half the main characters. Anyone who isn't a comic book junkie was
asking "Why is there a robot and a fireman in this scene?" Just another
too serious flick that betrays the source material and hopes that big
Hollywood names will save it (Spoiler alert: they don't).
