We bring you this week’s movie review, but this time we decided to twist things.
We invited a number of fans to come watch ‘Justice League’ and give us their review – something we will be doing more often soon. Thanks to Ster-kinekor for making this possible and offering the IMAX experience.
The long-awaited Justice League made its debut this past weekend at Ster-kinekor cinemas. The movie is based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, consisting of Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg.
In Justice League, the superhero team forms to honor Superman following his death and to save the planet from the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons.
Starring: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and more
Genre: Action, Adventure
Director: Zack Snyder
After watching the movie, here’s what our fans had to say:
This is definitely a must watch! – Bridgette Makhela (@BridgetteM_10)
Justice League, especially for superhero movie fans is an exciting watch, especially in 3D! The movie sees a group of all our favourite childhood action figures come to life on a quest to save the world!
It’s tricky trying to find a favourite superhero throughout the movie because they all have an x-factor that everybody will love.
The awesome group of superheroes coupled with their special weapon or superpower and flashy attire set out to bring justice to all who seek it in a world full of bad guys…this is definitely a must watch!
The end of the movie was quite predictable – Nyakallo Tefu (@_NyakalloT)
The two-hour movie is quite interesting, especially for viewers who love animated movies. Let us not take away that even for non-animation lovers, it is an interesting watch.
We’ve got to give it to Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman, for how she’s consistent in her role, charming and tough at the same time. Some real girl power in that!
Another superhero who managed to make us laugh as he played his role was, Ezra Miller who played The Flash. Normally superheroes would jump into whatever it is that they have to, but this superhero expresses his fear and at times not believing that he can overcome a challenge, before he does it, he adds a little bit of humour, you’d swear that’s his coping mechanism as he doesn’t flinch at that moment.
The end of the movie was quite predictable in terms of superhero’s fighting the ‘bad guy’, however, the sequence of events leading to the end of the movies is not so cliche.
If we were to rate this movie, an 8/10 considering the whole experience of watching it in 3D, it felt like we were also part of the cast.
I feel like Grant Gustin would have been a better cast – Danny Mdluli (@DannyMdluli)
Movie creator tried, by all means, to incorporate each individual characters life into the movie to give you a rough idea who the characters are. But by doing this, storyline ended having a confusing start with noise coming at you from left to right with some fans commenting how loud the sound was.
The only major let down to this action-packed movie considering the standards which could have been dropped from “Batman vs Superman: The Dawn of Justice” is the inconsistency of Barry Allens a.k.a THE FLASH character played by Grant Gustin in The Flash series to this movie character played by Ezra Miller. If you are a fan of The Flash or had watch series before you’d quickly notice that the two characters were nothing alike. Both characters have the same battle suit and that’s about it. Personally, I feel like Grant Gustin would have been a better cast option to play the character.
Even though the movie isn’t centred around The Flash, Star Labs where Barry Allen works in the 2017 series, is one major location where the character Cyborg was created after an accident he had which could have been fatal.
I would have preferred if Barry’s storyline was kept similar to the series character because throughout the movie.
The movie is a great watch for both young and old with some dry humour here and there. My highlight of this movie is that of Wonder Woman is more active in this team.
A lot of action and a bit of comedy what a perfect combination – Neo Mo’ (@Neo_mo_)
Justice league was such a trip… the entire movie takes you on a journey of all the different superhero clans. I love the Amazons if I had to have super powers I’d definitely be an Amazon honey have you seen them? The squat on horses 😃 anyway the entire movie was so dope it as so well return… a lot of action and a bit of comedy what a perfect combination.
