Readers, Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been out in the world for a few days now. For some of you, it has been a time for celebration. Other folks have been more reticent about it. Plenty are somewhere in between. Regardless, Zack Snyder‘s vision for Justice League is currently being consumed on HBO Max, and that’s noteworthy. Starting up a recurring piece that I want to feature from time to time here at Awards Radar, we’re asking for your thoughts on the film. Whenever something noteworthy is released, we’re going to be taking the temperature of the room, as it were. Hopefully, this will build up the community aspect of the site, generating extra debate and discussion.
Did you love Zack Snyder’s Justice League? If so, let us know. Did you find it to be a disappointment or a letdown? If so, we want to hear from you. No matter how you reacted, we’re curious to discover your thoughts about the movie. Personally, I found it to be much better than expected, somewhat redeeming the original, more deeply flawed, product.
As I said in my review:
It exists and I have seen it. The Snyder Cut is no longer a myth. Yes, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is days away from hitting HBO Max and the embargo has lifted. So, how is it? Well, it’s a bit complicated. Taken on its own, Zack Snyder‘s epic is bloated, overly serious, and somewhat of a mixed bag. However, when you consider what Joss Whedon had done with Justice League when he took over from Snyder, the improvement is palpable. Snyder and his producer/wife Deborah Snyder not only got to come rescue their baby in the shadow of tragedy, but they did manage to give fans what they wanted. That alone is worthy of some acclaim and respect, even before you consider the worthiness of this film.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League is still a shaggy dog, but it’s one with a coherent vision at its core. That really does count for something. The movie takes far too long to get where its going, almost trying to be individual short films for most of its heroes, but it does build to something effective. Plus, improved CGI, as well as a better tone, help make this a surprisingly smooth ride, bumps and all.
