2017 | DIR. ZACK SNYDER | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
For some, highlighting DC‘s failings has become an automated response to their cinema releases, and I am tired of the same old rhetoric. “Marveldo it better” (Yada yada yada). “Man of Steel was bad.” (Yada yada). “Batman v Superman was awful.” (Yada). And “Suicide Squad… let’s not go there.” So thank goodness for Wonder Woman, the beacon of light and the saving grace of the franchise thus far.
So, here we are and all that has passed finally culminates in Justice League, the long awaited assembly of DC superheroes who band together to save the world – and at a welcome 119-minute running time. Where Man of Steel and Batman v Superman suffered from bloated durations, Justice League is a much less arduous sitting; the DC movie universe has given us one less reason to whinge.
