Review: by Heidi

I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect from this movie. On one hand I love comic book movies, you’re guaranteed action and fantasy. But on the other hand this was a DC movie… and well, let’s just say I’m a believer that Marvel has been winning the match.

Superman is dead. Gone. The world is mourning the loss of their hero, and with nobody to rely on fear rates are rising. Insert enemy. With so much fear the planet is in the perfect state to be overthrown. Batman, fueled by his guilt of Superman’s death goes on a quest to collect a team of people with special powers to take down the enemy. His team consists of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg. Although, we knew who the team would consist of from hints in Batman vs. Superman (2016) and Wonder Woman (2017).

What I Liked:

Jason Mamoa…. Lol no but really he’s really nice to look at. However, if you’re not into ogling the dark and moody wonderful being that he is I also really enjoyed The Flash. I’m a comedy person, probably why I prefer Marvel to DC on a high level. Almost every moment that made me laugh was a scene with The Flash. He was such an awkward person it was uncomfortably funny. Other than that the action was pretty cool. Graphics and animation were awesome. But not much plot-wise really stood out to me.

What I Didn’t Like:

I don’t know if DC is going for the super corny old comic book vibe or not but ALL of the dialogue was corny and awkward. Conversations were uncomfortable, and there were a lot of conversations. More dialogue than action. The movie was slow moving. Scenes that would usually make me tear up in other movies had me wishing the scene would hurry up and move on. And I know the actors are decent so I have to chalk it up to that’s what DC was going for. There was also a lack of character development, particularly with The Flash, but that might later be touched on in a solo movie, maybe?  Oh and if you didn’t know Mercedes was a sponsor… you’ll see.
