Zack Snyder’s Justice League hailed as ‘masterpiece’ as first reviews land

Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been hailed as a ‘masterpiece’ in first reviews, with the four-hour marathon on its way this week.

Following the release of the widely-criticised DC movie in 2017, which saw Joss Whedon brought in for reshoots after Snyder left the production due to personal reasons, fans began the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut campaign.

Four years after the release of Justice League, it seems their determination has paid off, with many blown away by the new cut.

Variety has dubbed it a ‘knockout’ and ‘more than a vindication of Snyder’s original vision,’ while critic Kevin McCarthy has gone a step further, describing it as a ‘masterpiece’.

He added: ‘Snyder brings his brilliant technical & emotional storytelling to an awesome continuation of what he beautifully built in MAN OF STEEL & BvS. Great mix of soundtrack & score. 1.33 aspect ratio is incredibly immersive. Loved R-Rating.’

Critic Scott Menzel added: ‘Snyder’s Justice League is one of the best superhero movies ever made.

‘The long awaited cut lives up to the hype & feels unlike anything we’ve seen in this universe before. Each character is fully realized & gets their moment to shine & kick some ass.’

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, ScreenRant writer Andrew Dyce said it’s ‘guaranteed to inspire the future of fantasy blockbusters.’

Collider editor Steven Weintraub added: ‘#TheSnyderCut is loaded with scenes people haven’t seen & are going to love. It is such a better movie than the theatrical cut of #JusticeLeague. Night and day difference. Saying that have no idea how this version could have ever been released in theaters. Perfect for @hbomax.’

However, not everyone is impressed, with the Hollywood Reporter’s review describing the movie’s soul as ‘unimproved’ and Entertainment Weekly branding it ‘just as bad and twice as long’.

The latest version of Justice League cost an estimated $70 million (£50 million) to rework.

The director previously revealed that he would not be using any of Whedon’s footage in the film.

Meanwhile, his wife Deborah, who is also a producer on the film, advised him not to watch Whedon’s version which was heavily criticised by fans.

She explained: ‘It was just… it’s a weird experience. I don’t know how many people have that experience. You’ve worked on something for a long time, and then you leave, and then you see what happened to it.’
