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 »

Quite entertaining, by the standards of the animation episodes..
Not sure what movies the critics e.g. rottentomatoes watched..as conspiracy theories go, one is tempted to wonder if they were paid to tear apart, and it looks inconsistent esp considering they loved Wonder Woman..
Anyway I think JL has nailed it, by the standards of the animation episodes which I thought are quite entertaining..Ben Affleck nails it as Bruce Wayne and as Batman, Gal Gadot IS Wonder Woman..and finally they've got Superman right (to me)..and Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman are great as well (also Jeremy Irons is great as Alfred), and maybe this is a good precursor to their standalone movies..
It's worth keeping in mind that this is a superhero flick, an escape, a fantasy etc -- if one wants a real life uplifting catharsis, one should stick with The Shawshank Redemption and so on.. JL is certainly not perfect, it does not do character development on the scales of the Dark Knight or some such..but it is definitely entertaining, fast-paced, positive and relatively lighthearted, and the characters are mostly placed correctly (at least along the lines of the animation episodes), as individuals and as part of the League.. this is certainly comparable to Wonder Woman in terms of how hopeful it feels overall.. and in some (inexplicable!) sense Synder's take on the previous movies also makes a bit more sense now, within this universe..at some level.. I also found it amusing to be reminded of the Batman animation theme and the John Williams Superman theme..!
