The end of 2017 provides excitement in an otherwise bland year for movies
The fifth entry into the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) provides fun action and witty humor, but fails to provide a memorable story. Justice League follows Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, Aquaman, and Superman as they team up to keep the evil Steppenwolf from destroying the world. In one word, this movie is a mess; however, there is a lot of fun to be had. Seeing all these iconic characters together on screen for the first time is an extremely satisfying feeling and the cast chemistry is, for the most part, solid. The film’s original length was three hours, but was cut down to two hours for the theaters. Because of this, the film feels like it’s constantly rushed, and lacks the proper development needed to give characters motivation. By the end of the film, there are many unresolved plot holes and loose ends. Justice League failed to live up to the hype, but its ending provides excitement for what the future of the DCEU has to hold.
