‘Justice League’ Premiered Last Night & The Reviews Are In

Warner Bris

After years of rumors, hype, delays, controversy, and anticipation, Justice League is finally hitting theatres this Thursday night and in case you’re wondering … yes, I have already bought tickets.

No, but seriously, in case you’re wondering, the first social media reviews have started to pour out and they are, as Larry David would say … pretty, pretty good. Not great, not bad, but pretty good. And after the divisive mess that was Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, “pretty good” is really all DC and Warner Bros could hope for.

The consensus seems to be while the plot and CGI are lacking, the characters, comedy, chemistry and action seem to be on point.

Fans are going to LOVE #JusticeLeague! I think it’s much more “mainstream friendly” than BvS.

There’s a badass Batman moment that only Zack Snyder could deliver!

In fact, there’s tons of classic Snyder moments. Lots of slow-mo!

The Superman stuff is GREAT!

Saw 'Justice League' again tonight. While I've got some issues with the film when it works it really works. Note for future superhero movies: no more CGI villains. pic.twitter.com/yT8ARlOO1M

#JusticeLeague is not a good movie, but it is a mostly good time at the movies.

"There were unnecessary Bruce/Diana scenes. They were completely unnecessary and they tried to validate it by relating it to Diana's personal arc as a hero but it was repetitive. Overall it is definitely a better film than BvS but DC can do better. I give it a 7/10." pic.twitter.com/aWxqEUNJTI

Justice League- loads of fun, great cast, many surprises. Also, very gratifying to see what an indelible mark Jack Kirby has made in popular culture in two big movies this month.

I loved #JusticeLeague even more the second time. Can't wait til my third viewing in Nashville tomorrow night. #AllIn

Okay so here’s my #JusticeLeague reaction: I enjoyed it, the characters were great especially The Flash, and it was funny. But… the CGI in the third act was messy and it was just flashes and noise at the end. Better than BvS though and much lighter tone! So yay!

Single Tweet Comparison, Thor VS #JusticeLeague
After sleeping on it, still loved Justice League. I actually liked it more than Thor. Thor was good, but mostly jokes. This was an epic Super Hero journey with a nice mix of humor and action. Highly recommend to any comic fan. pic.twitter.com/P9AUXcO99x

However, despite the fact that initial reviews seem overall positive, reports indicate that Rotten Tomatoes will be withholding the film’s score until early Thursday morning. 

Whatever the ultimate Rotten Tomatoes score may be, in our opinion, anything with Gal Gadot is worth seeing, whether you like superheroes or not.
