So last night, I finally gotten around to watching the Zack Snyder cut of “Justice League” on BluRay. I watched both parts in one night. That was Snyder’s original “vision” of the film.
To be honest, I didn’t like it all that much. Kind of boring. Way too much CGI that it felt very cartoony and I thought that Snyder over did the slow mo effects. You all know how Snyder is obsessed with “slow mo” in all of his films? Well that effect is all over “Justice League” and it was kind of tiring my eyes.
Plus the story was kind of silly and dumb. I can see why Warner Bros. refused to release it at first ’cause they were right in the beginning, it was pretty “unwatchable”.
So I don’t get all the positive reviews of this version and I felt that all this hype was for nothing? Don’t get me wrong, though… I thought the film had some cool moments and a few surprising cameos. I didn’t like the way Batman’s story was going in this one either.
Like the title says, I prefer the Joss Whedon version more which I will plan on re-watching pretty soon. Making a perfect “Justice League” movie is hard ’cause of too many characters and all, ya know?
I also thought Snyder’s version was too crowded with way too much star power actors, ya know? Whedon’s version was lesser of a headache.
WB’s shouldn’t have released Snyder’s version at all and kept it in the vault but they were forced to release it due to popular demand, ya know? I think Snyder is a fine film maker ’cause I’m a fan of most of his work. I just didn’t get why Snyder’s version was way “overhyped” and it continues to be “overhyped” now.
