This host is really riding this movies dick hard. Haha holy shit.

Memoon Khan says:

How dumb is WB. The problem with BvS was not the fucking tone . It was the scene cutting and uneven pace. The ultimate cut was miles ahead of the theatrical one. How the fuck they made the same mistake with Justice league. The film starts really strong and Midway it starts going like fucking stupid the ending is so rushed I was like wtf. And the fucking mustache thing I could tell the ending was reshot it was totally different then what the movie was going to be earlier.

Richard Joseph says:

Damn we were robbed of a movie worth jla Im an old school dude and I am pissed about it going now as these guys are not helping that mood at all…..

Richard Joseph says:

Stopped from killing himself by aquman & wondereoman….

Richard Joseph says:

I had friends that said Batman wouldn't kill …In the synder cut he was so remorseful about having killed he had to be brought

Richard Joseph says:

And as far as bvs being convoluted that wAS the only iteration of Batman that I got it was genius

Richard Joseph says:

It was intenional but the 3 movies that synder did was a trilogy with the codex being the reason that supes could come back….

Richard Joseph says:

I just woke up to these guys thinking that they know stuff they seem to give us geeks a bad name I don't think. …

Muhammed Ozturk says:

Funny how mark can't find a single criticism in the last jedi and defended it completely even the kanto bite shit. But attacks justice league that has gone through a lot of production shit and ended up being a decent movie just because superman wasn't used as much….

Carmelo Torres says:

Whack movie, super let down. They really did some copy n paste of a bullshit marvel flick. Weak humor, Batman was amazing in BvS but super watered down and boring in this film which was absolutely tragic. Gal gadots Wonder Woman is dry, boring and if it wasn’t her pretty face she’d be absolutely useless imo. Enjoyed Superman coming back and kicking everyone’s ass including Stephen wolf.

William Stall says:

It sucked overall.  What chemistry between the Justice League members?  They had just met!  No back stories, no connection to the audience.  Aquaman?  Oooh, he can break whisky bottles.  Flash?  Look at me I can push a sword… Cyborg?  The ultimate mechanic?  I can make the bat jet fly faster…  HOW?  Taking the trainer wheels off?  Batman becomes a psychic?  I have dreams….  LOL  Wonder Woman was the ONE and ONLY character that was good.  Snyder is 0/3 for comic book genre movies.

Yautja Prime says:

You guys find problems where none exist sometimes. This was a great movie and is up there with Wonder Woman as the best DC installment to date. If you believe they could do Thanos or Steppenwolf without CGI, then you literally are insane. I don't know a single person who thinks that or that had a problem with the "grave robbing" scene. This was the Superman that everyone has been waiting for for decades! Even my Mom thought they finally got Sups right and she isn't into super heroes.

Bogdan Lazar says:

Just saw the movie. Agree with everything all you guys said!

tangled55 says:

They completely shit on Henry Cavill/Superman and are DOUBLING DOWN on shitting on him. They deserve to lose him.

Also, ANYTIME ANYONE referred to him as "Clark" or "Kal-El" except Lois or Martha, I wanted to jump through the screen and smack them in their faces. They don't KNOW Clark.

SuCKeRPunCH187 says:

what happened to doomsdays body?

Eric Kennedy says:

Collider you guys are ass , Corporate sellouts

Paul Warren says:

I enjoyed this movie way more than critic opinion and box office led me to believe, all of the actors were great.
But, the plot and the villain sucked and Superman's death just fucked up so much of this that I have to dock it serious points. I couldn't see anything with Caville and the mustache, which was great, but Steppenwolf's CGI was HORRIBLE.
So, I give it a respectable 7/10 but it's not up there with even most of the Marvel movies as the characters just didn't have the time for me to get to love them.

T D says:

It was far from perfect. FAR. But I kind of enjoyed it.
