Justice League: First Reactions Fairly Positive!

The Justice League social media embargo has been lifted, so we finally have access to the critics' initial thoughts on the movie. Most of them agree that it’s a good, if not great, movie.

Warner Bros. had originally set the review and social media embargo to remain in effect until barely two days prior to Justice League’s release, prompting concern that the studio lacked confidence in the movie. Then, the rumors that we would see the first set of Twitter reactions yesterday proved inaccurate. The rumors that the embargo would lift today turned out to be spot on.

The first reactions to the upcoming DC superhero extravaganza are in, and it feels safe to assume that we won't be witnessing another Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Suicide Squad. Most of the critics seem to have enjoyed Justice League, but it might be wise to avoid thinking that Justice League will best Wonder Woman's Rotten Tomatoes approval rating.

Based on the critics' reactions, it appears that the superheroes are quite remarkable and the movie offers plenty of humor. But like the majority of superhero movies, this one lacks an impressive supervillain. Other reviews point out that there are issues with the narrative.

It must be noted that these are just brief reactions and the full-review embargo is still in effect. There's been no official confirmation, but it’s likely that full-length reviews will also come earlier than expected.

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.
