The Highly Anticipated Director’s cut streams on HBO MAX
Finally, it’s here, the long awaited, much anticipated, director’s cut of the Justice League. Director Zack Snyder finally gets the chance to tell his version of the SAME story, a chance he was sadly denied.
Right from the opening credits you get a good sense of what you have signed up for, Superman’s death screams are heard loud and clear across the DCEU be it Atlantis or Themyscira.
Carried by the sound design and visuals alone it offers a much more engaging opening to the film than all of the predecessors in the series
If you are a true Zack Snyder fan or an admirer of his DCEU than this is for you and specially you. Everything about this franchise and everything about Snyder ‘s artistic vision is dialed to an eleven.
Resulting in a 4 hour long version that doesn’t justify its runtime by any means, glaring plot holes, heavy CGI reliant action, posing and posing, weird song choices, a slow pace, slow motion(a lot!), yes everything Mr. Zack Snyder prefers is there.
A whole lot of scenes don’t add coherency to the story and plot but are purely there to satisfy the comic book fanboys.
Cyborg gets a whole lot more to do, so does flash and batman, sadly Superman is still waiting and posing and held back as usual. Wonder Woman is pushed to the backline while aquaman has the setup for his movie which we have already seen.
There’s a slew of DC characters all being thrown into the mix, one after another, their introductions go from baffling to meh!. Some of them show up purely to set up future films which we will probably never see.
It didn’t make me care much about itself as it definitely wanted to but still, I could appreciate the passion and the hardwork put into it by Zack Snyder and am very happy that he got the chance put this out there and I wish him and his family well.
Its up to the viewer, Zack Snyder’s Justice League exaggerates everything good and bad about the DCEU and Snyder’s vision of these characters, if you have been a fan till BVS then it’s a must see otherwise it is a painfully long, overdone version of the same from 2017.
