Justice League Is ‘Loud & Ugly’ but Consensus Is It’s the Best DCEU Movie yet as Early Reactions Pour In

Justice League Early Reactions Surface

Advance screenings of the much-anticipated movie “Justice League” have begun and film critics are giving their verdicts on Twitter. Media are now allowed to post their reactions on social media but are not allowed to post their full reviews until later this week. Overall, the response appears mixed so far.


The general consensus seems to be that it is the best DC Extended Universe movie so far; however, that is not really saying much given the poor reaction to Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad.

Most agreed that the film is fun, but this came with a lot of caveats.

“#JusticeLeague is fine,” Mashable’s Angie Han wrote. “It’s more coherent & less idiosyncratic than Batman v Superman (which I loved, so make of that what you will), and tries very hard to lighten up on the gloom & doom of the DC universe. There are jokes and everything!”

ComicBookNow’s Brandon Davis was more positive, tweeting: “Every member of the League is fantastic and it’s tough to choose a favorite. It’s a ton a fun, start to finish.”

But Mashable’s Josh Dickey was not a fan: “Nothing could save JUSTICE LEAGUE from its loud, ugly, tacky self. Not Wonder Woman, not wide-eyed Ezra Miller, not Joss Whedon’s quippy teardown & rebuild. And Henry Cavill’s mustache is an actual issue; they gave him Uncanny Valley Face. Oof, guys. It’s a rough ride.”

The team-up movie opens in cinemas on 17 November.
