Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Gets Positive Reviews!
It looks like Zack Snyder‘s Justice League is off to a flying start. Journalists and critics who got early access to the film have also given some great and positive reviews. Here’s what they have to say about the much-anticipated Snyder cut!
Critics dig Zack Snyder’s Justice League
The hype around the Snyder Cut is at its peak. Moreover, with the four-hour run time, fans are over the moon, with scenes that were not a part of the original Justice League from 2017. This version of the movie cost Warner Bros. around $70 million to assemble. It includes scenes from the originally intended theatrical release and the extra scenes that Zack Snyder shot with Jared Leto’s Joker. But with such a long run-time, you can be sure that Snyder left nothing in the editing room.
And by looking at what the critics have to say, it looks like it’s going to be an epic journey for our caped and, un-caped, and even scaled crusaders. For instance, here’s what Umberto Gonzalez had to say about the film. To sum it up, he was all praises after watching it three times, as he said:
#ZackSnydersJusticeLeague does indeed exist, I seen it THREE TIMES now, & IT IS FREAKIN' AWESOME! I had an absolute blast watching each time & shocked at just how good it actually is and how well it plays! Action packed, it hits all the beats & that @Junkie_XL score is straight🔥 pic.twitter.com/UgFW1Le9kA

Similarly, Germain Lussier said that Zack Snyder’s Justice League is “worth the wait”:
Zack Snyder's Justice League: I enjoyed it thoroughly. It's both very different, and eerily similar, to the original film with almost all of the changes and additions improving the characters and story. Better motivations. Bigger stakes. It's bloated but superior & worth the wait pic.twitter.com/h7PRADzeJn

Furthermore, Steven Weintraub and Perri Nemiroff also had no ill words for Justice League and Snyder’s work. They said:
#TheSnyderCut is loaded with scenes people haven't seen & are going to love. It is such a better movie than the theatrical cut of #JusticeLeague. Night and day difference. Saying that have no idea how this version could have ever been released in theaters. Perfect for @hbomax. pic.twitter.com/Fnamv6GcKj

Here, however, it's earned through sincere beats of coming to understand one another, figuring out how to operate as a team and well conveying that they all had something to fight for. Was utterly fascinated watching the footage included in the 2017 cut become more powerful here. pic.twitter.com/p9IRy756MR

Moreover, every critic used the word “superior” to define the Snyder cut. But, one thing that made this Justice League stand out was the character development, which feels like it is superior in this movie, compared to the 2017 theatrical release of Joss Whedon.
I can now say that I have watched #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague and it is far superior to the original theatrical version. Rich character development, much better action, a coherent story & some terrific badass moments. Definitely a long watch, but I never felt tired of it. Well done pic.twitter.com/QXyQLdUApv

But, there were still critics who pointed out faults in Zack Snyder’s work. That said, they still admitted his Justice League is far superior to the 2017 version:
ZACK SNYDER’s JUSTICE LEAGUE is vastly superior to the mess that came out in 2017. It’s now a coherent movie. But it’s still a four hour movie about finding magic boxes. It’s … not for me, but I suspect Snyder fans will be happy.

Lastly, Rob Keyes even wishes there was a Justice League trilogy. That would have allowed other characters to gel in with each other for future movies. But that might be expecting a bit too much from Warner Bros.
I watched #ZackSnydersJusticeLeague last week. It made me wish there were a JL trilogy and a plan for the larger universe, where this Aquaman and this Wonder Woman sync up with the solo movies better, where Cyborg gets his due, etc. It’s long but also too short in that respect.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League will debut on HBO Max on 18th March, and it looks like we’re in for an epic journey.
