18th March 2021 witnessed the long-awaited release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Back in 2017, Zack Snyder had to put his ongoing project of Justice League 2017 on hold, due to some family emergency. However, Warner Bros. did not have the patience to finish the work on the release of Justice League, due to which Joss Whedon was brought on board. 70% of the entire production was reshot by Joss and the audience was given the 2017 Justice League. But after a campaign that was run by numerous DC fans, requested Zack Snyder to be brought on board for the next narrative of the Justice League. Due to popular demand, the director was brought back on board, but even the new Snyder’s Justice League has some flaws around it. Here is a list of 10 issues that still exist in the Justice League.
DCEU’s Rushed Development
Just like their previous productions, DCEU in this narrative has looked like rushing with the production of the entire narrative. Seems like DCEU so stuck up with sticking to their roots, that they are too afraid to experiment or think out of the box. The production seemed to have rushed in, especially with more than half of the Justice League characters not getting their films. To discuss their back story, and this being done within the same movie where they have come together to fight the forces of evil.
Touches From The Original, Gone!
Before the release of Justice League Snyder’s cut, Zack made it pretty clear that he would be undoing everything that Whedon had initially implicate in the narrative of 2017’s Justice League. Which a lot of the fans, did not agree to be a very good idea. Whedon’s version had a far better take at comedy, compared to Zack’s, also the argument between Bruce and Diana over Superman’s resuscitation has been completely removed from the storyline.
Snyder’s version of Justice League is much darker than Whedon’s Justice League, but the comedy has probably taken a back seat with Zack’s Justice League. There have been several moments within the story in which witness characters make a funny quip, but it doesn’t even work well enough to force a smile on one’s face. Even with Ezra Miller’s perfect portrayal of the Flash so far, even he is unable to pull out the funny quips within the narrative.
Why Was It Rated R?
The movie was given an ‘R’ rating which raised many expectations, at least from the adult DC fans. But, when one walked in the movie and then out, you feel left disappointed. Because leave alone the fight scenes, which weren’t even bloody, there was not a single worthy F-bomb in the entire narrative. Might as well have given the movie a PG-13 rating.
Bad Action Scenes
In particular, there were two action scenes in the movie, which kind of became too monotonous. One was Diana in the bank scene, which had pathetic CGI and too many slo-mo shots. The second was the Gotham harbor scene, which was too long and boring.
Worse Visual Effects
The movie has had some beautiful cinematography included but missed out on several CGI issues. Especially with Wonder Woman in the bank scenes, where she just looked like throwing some dolls into the walls.
Steppenwolf Is Still A Sucker
In the Snyder cut we witness a deeper reveal of Steppenwolf’s standing in the film. But, apart from that, he is still a sucker of a character, even in this narrative. Apart from his motivations and inclination to completing his mission, he is still the worst personality character to have around.
Dialogues Are Unclear
The dialogues used in the movie felt somewhat unclear or unspecific in nature. Apart from Silas Stone’s message which looked almost there, it still lacked some extra punch. Whereas the entire movie witnesses dialogues and jokes which do not solve the purpose.
The Movie Is Self-Indulging
The four hours long narrative of the Zack Snyder Justice League seemed somewhat of a bumpy ride for a lot of fans. The movie has been overstuffed with so many plots, that it becomes confusing at times for few individuals who are not aware of the history of the character. Zack in many scenes could have shortened the plot or delete a particular scene altogether.
Improper Structure And Editing
Snyder’s cut lacks a proper structure, which is the proper portrayal of characters according to the chain of events and the arrival of characters. The plots seem to collide with each other and form the most mixed-up action sequence of 2021.
