The new Justice League is a superhero epic that involves alien invaders fighting legendary heroes. Batman recruits Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and The Flash to seek out Superman to beat alien invaders. Justice League Snyder’s Cut begins with a recap of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for better realization of the new movie. Snyder has been given all the resources he needs to reshoot, recut and reconceive the film that he had to abandon because of a family tragedy.
Snyder Cut of Justice League is undoubtedly more enjoyable than 2017’s release. It was a better version of the story than the theatrical release. Joss Whedon’s version was enjoyable too, but not up to the mark, some even say it was messy. The film could have been so much better but it was something Whedon was not committed or prepared to do.
Batman aligns forces with Wonder Woman to recruit a team of superheroes to protect the world from Darkseid, an alien invader so that Superman’s selfless sacrifice would not be in vain. Darkseid, the lord of the planet Apokolips is the Universe’s most dangerous warlord. Stopping this crazy warlord isn’t that easy because he has a relentless army to create chaos on earth. The Justice League must recruit a team and unite as one to save the Earth from this villain. Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this dangerous enemy. The task is not that simple and proves tougher than batman thought because every hero must face the demons of their own pasts. Batman and Wonder Woman enlists Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg to form a league of heroes. Then they fight to rescue the earth.
So, the plot is mostly the same in both Whedon’s versions and Snyder’s version. But considering a lot of budgets has thrown into it, computer-generated imagery does not feel out of ordinary. Besides that Justice League Snyder’s Cut is doing great. Although the film got some mixed reviews from critics and audience, superhero movie lovers should enjoy it.
Everyone will have their own opinions. Some will say this movie is still messy like the previous release and some will say it’s a great movie. Zack Snyder put less humor and more serious stuff into the movie. Zack Snyder superhero movies are different. Those who like them can’t understand why everyone doesn’t, and those who don’t like them can’t understand why anyone would like them. Snyder’s cut of Justice League is as close to the comic book as it can be. So comic-book fans will love the movie. As for other people, they could love it or hate it, it’s up to the individual. But one thing is for sure that Justice League Snyder’s Cut is far better than the previous release. So this movie should be on your watchlist though it’s a four-hour-long movie. There are worse ways to spend time.
