Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Action Adventure - This is an effects-heavy superhero action adventure bringing together
a number of DC Comics heroes, chiefly Batman, Superman, and Wonder
Woman. The latter is the focus after her hit movie this summer, and
thus fans of Gal Gadot will be pleased, as should those of Ben
Affleck and Henry Cavill though they are somewhat more in the
background this time. Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and J.K. Simmons have
limited screen time. The tone here is generally lighter than the
previous recent DC Comics films. Language and bloodshed is minimal,
but there are some intense action scenes that may be of concern to
parents of young kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average The next time these characters band together, perhaps they will do so with stronger backgrounds, a real sense of purpose, and a story that's more than a cobbled-together mess. ...70% of the movie is set-up for future tales. The rest is an overlong smack-down between our heroes and possibly the worst villain ever to appear in a comic book picture.
Roger EbertFull Review Good "Justice League" is light on its feet, sprinting through a super-group's origin story in less than two hours, giving its ensemble lots to do, and mostly avoiding the self-importance that damaged previous entries in this franchise.
USA TodayFull Review Good Justice League is as solid an outing as any superhero fan could hope, with a clear family vibe: Wonder Woman and Batman prove to be a dynamic mom-and-dad duo while the fastest kid around steals the show.
NY PostFull Review Below Average ...a pointless flail of expensive (yet somehow cheap-looking) CGI that no amount of tacked-on quips, or even Gadot's luminescent star power, can rescue. ...patched together from disparate elements. There's no sense of purpose here, not even a sense of place.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 137 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! The vast majority indicated that they LOVED "JUSTICE LEAGUE." As is normal, there were a few who felt it was just an "average" movie. Surprisingly, most of these were teen and twentysomething males, but their few reviews are overshadowed by the high number who rated it extremely high.
