  • This Was So freaking good I really want to see more and I think this is better than infinity war and endgame for the bad ass enemies but endgame and infinity war has the best team up if we all had like multiple movies of characters in the dceu and knew there history like marvel and bonded this would be one of the top movies but I REALLY WANT TO SEE DCEU GREEK GOD MOVIE like zack should make one of how they clapped upas wen he was a teenager

  • Oh please god, don't let 4 hour movies become the norm. Film makers these days need a lesson in brevity, not further indulging themselves lol.

  • Better then the first one, But a bad movie overall.. I would give a 6/10, Hence,not up to the expectations. I don't recommend to watch and get your 4 hours wasted. Unexplained and extra Complicated plot. No moment of joy in a 4 hour long movie. You may enjoy 15-20 minutes and that's the actual total entertainment this movie could deliver. Wonder woman was uselessly over exaggerated and was given so much screen time,but still she proved no matter how much you give them opportunity,they will waste it and prove that women are weak. Man is the Real power. If this was to made, I question why they wasted so much money and resources again. They could have made another movie or netflix series instead. I found it only 20% better than the previous one, But I feel my 4 hours have been literally wasted. 👎🏼👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  • I agree it would have been better in a miniseries.u

  • Everything went RIGHT! Makes you wonder if WB & Whedon are Disney-cum-Marvel moles out to discredit the DC franchise.

  • Will this be released commercially on 4k? I don't have HBO Max🙈

  • "Infinitly better" *Gives B+ and Josstice League got B-*

  • Still shitty.

  • I think it's one of those things, if you like Zack Snyder, you'll like this. I see a lot of people complaining about his use of slow motion, but I think it fits with a comic book movie. You kinda see things the same as reading a graphic novel where it's basically a series of moments captured on the page. Batman (one of my favorite characters) is no longer a giddy child fanboy of Superman and has legitimate character development from BvS. It's not perfect but I still find myself wanting to watch it even after a few viewings. I've always liked big epics though so that's just my taste. It ain't perfect but it's fun to watch and feels faithful to the characters I grew up with.

  • 4 hours live action version of the super friends. I want to see the justice league. Where the hell is the green lantern?

  • Justice league was bad ?. I liked it

  • I'll give it 8 out of 10 but I expected it to be 10000000 out of 10 so Was the Movie Good ? Yes Was It What I Expected No

  • If you want a good 4 our movie that is never boring : Love exposure

  • 2:16 Cyborg, a (flesh)ed out person! Oh the (Iron)y

  • To be honest, Snyders version has something going for it which is better action and more content. Which for me doesn't justify calling it the better version... But yeah Josh's version had more context to the characters and felt more finished? Don't know how to say it exactly..

  • I thought that the best character they improved in this movie other than Cyborg was Steppenwolf. He was a vastly better villain because he had a fantastic design, badass voice and understandable motivations. Let me know if you agree!

  • All of this talk about a film but in the UK we can't watch it?

  • This version is way better than Joss Whedon’s garbage. Snyder’s version saved this franchise. 4 ⭐️!

  • Snyder is the wrong guy to make super hero movies. Now I understand why the studio got so scared of his movie (I've watch it). Snyder is like Nietzsche. He's a pessimist: God doesn't exist, existence has no meaning, and nothing is never gonna change. So, if you believe in that. Why do you want to make a superhero's movie? "Because I want to deconstruct the hero. It's a lie" So I say: - Fuck you Zack Snyder! We don't want your nightmare. Our world is already like that. We want to believe. Show to the world that hero's ideals can changing it, and not that they fall into becoming an image of our depressive selves. Your heroes are not heroes. They don't win against all odds. They give up to hopelessness. Snyder. You have no idea of what heroes are.

    • P.S. Your move is better than the one their put in theaters. Just because they unsuccessfully tried to fix your disaster.

  • Was to long. Yes it was cool to see cyborgs back story and should have been included... but waaaaay to much over dramatized “slowed time” moments probably added an unnecessary 20 to 30 minutes

  • He said he's excited but sounds soo boring with thile review. Monotone

  • Never saw the theatrical cut... but sorry guys this movie suck. If this is the best a 4hour version can achieve i feel bad for the poor guy who had to turn it into a 2hour one. What are you smoking stuckman, this movie was complete trash

  • Honestly, I would like to see what you thought of the film, beyond the notion that you're psyched to see that the filmmaker got to make his movie. To me, that sentiment can cut both ways. Yes, it is good to see that there is some bravery with allowing this to happen. But, unfortunately, Snyder's cut just isn't that good. Too many awful song choices, too many character destroying/defining choices, such as WW straight up killing humans or default Superman being a murdering psychopath (in both cuts). Flash has no character arc. Cyborg's arc was reduced to a juvenile representation of a good person. Most of the consequential scenes are a product of luck, sorry faith, such as Superman showing up at all at just the right time. And, come on, Martian Manhunter was Martha Kent? Why? So he could show up at the end to say he was going to join the fight now that he decided Earth was worth fighting for? Are we supposed to forget that he's been a General in the US military. So, what comes out of this in the end. In my mind, it provides evidence for why studios are as restrictive as they are. Otherwise, they get bloated nonsense that can look cool.

  • Kinda wanted to watch it before I found out amber heard was in it

  • Movie was awful omg

  • Seriously who the hell has a square screen?

  • 10 out of 10 !!!

  • Best part to watch this is the way Zach intended it...in parts. “His inclusion feels like something wed just enjoy seeing”.....right, thats a good thing, specially in the comic book genre with so many insides and back stories.

  • oh so epic Flash sequence in the end. Snyder you finally did it!

  • I need Imax version of Mission Impossible too!!!!!!!!

  • Disagree re: Cyborg. Better. Still bad. Also, the additions Snyder made almost tank it. The epilogue and associated scenes should be cut. They're awful.

    • Also, a lot of the film is still incredibly stupid...

  • when he mention the jokes are diled down i just could not help but smile. I still ahve not seen the cut but my god that made me happy. I remember watching the first justice League and i just thought, "WTF!! is up with all these shit punchlines all over the place! " It just srsly made me mad how bad it was.

    • see him evolve into a better director and shed some of his old tricks for new ones sorry to yap

  • Completely agree with you.

  • WATCH SAMURAI CHAMPLOO CHRIS!!! IF YOU LIKED COWBOY BEBOP THEN YOU'LL LOVE THIS!!!!!

  • The scene where The Flash goes back into time to save everything just shows what Zack wished he could do to save his daughter.

  • Tbh, I dont like the Snyder's cut, so many slow-mos and full of cringey moments (like the flash saving iris). And please, the 1st one was like Snyder's trial and error so let's not pretend he hasn't benefited from it. It definitely gave him ideas what is lacking, what works and what would not

  • Oh a decent cut of justice league! The previous version felt too bright and colourful PG 13 version, the Zack Snyder's cut is a hell lot better! Oh and Zack Snyder I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's suicide, my heart feels your pain I lost a brother 11 years ago, and that pain never heals that kind of emptiness I feel, i honour his memory by doing things we loved doing together, my brother would of hell loved this movie, thankyou for your hard work on the movie

    • I think this justice league deserve more ranking i think this definitely was A tier movie!

  • I’m not a DC fan and I don’t like any of the DC movies except for Wonder Woman, I watched the Joss Whedon version and found it atrociously bad so I had 0 interest in watching this one... until I saw Cosmonaut Picture Show’s review praising the movie, so I decided to give it a try and HOLY SHIT!! I had gotten chills like 6 times in the first hour of the movie, it’s so. damn. good. exhausting to watch but I couldn’t stop, I was so invested. just finished watching it right now and I’m really happy it was released. I used to think it was pointless to release the Snyder Cut, I even found all the campaigning a bit annoying but I was so wrong and thank god they gave him this chance!!!

  • This movie has better story than the first but the color is stupidly dark. It should have just kept the same color as the first movie.

  • 4:3 is horrible

  • It was a good movie, you don’t live in a perfect world, mention a perfect movie, all knowing, you unbelievable this guy

  • I didn’t mind the 4-hour time. I actually watched it in three sittings, but had planned to watched it in 4, I just couldn’t put it down. As long as the narrative allows it, I don’t look at the timer

  • I like ZS and JW. They are just two very different directors. And you cannot expect to hire someone like Whedon, and don’t expect him to change or put his personal touch in it. It’s like finding an unfinished DaVinci, and then give it to Picasso or Dali to finish, it’s going to be a mess. Both are capable of great work, but the styles are way different. The studio could’ve saved a lot of money hiring small time director to just finish Snider’s vision. But I think they underestimated the audience and didn’t want to give us a darker, deeper more mature movie, as it was intended, and they hire someone more heartwarming and fun. I love JW movies and tv shows, but this wasn’t a job for him with what was filmed already. Also they could have hired a director more akin to SZ, maybe the washoskis or Robert Rodriguez. But if all that hadn’t happened we wouldn’t have had this version, there was no way they would’ve released a 4 hour cut, I think everything worked out for the best. I just hope they make a sequel, I’m excited about Darkseid for the first time, even the same way I was excited about Thanos.

  • I don’t care about the black bars either, I care about watching the whole frame, as it was intended.

  • Honestly, after seeing the first, I really didn’t want the Snyder cut... I was like just let it go; but I have to admit...I was wrong. This movie was WAY better than the Josh version! Shout out to you Zack! My only critique, seriously, SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE AWAY SNYDERS SLOW MOTION BUTTON!!!! This movie would not have been 4 hours if he didn’t use all that unnecessary slow motion. It really got annoying

  • Its most def better than the first cut but the overuse of cg was really irritating me for at least the first 2 hrs and then it's like I either got used to it or it got better..it took me 4 days to finish the movie but I was disappointed when the runtime got near the end because the action scenes towards the end with them working together was pretty good and knowing that we probably won't ever see Ben Affleck as Batman again or Ray Fisher(who I've only seen in like 3 things but he's always good and I wish he was in more) as Cyborg again and even Henry Cavill as Superman(who wasn't in the movie enough but at least his lips look ok) and of course Jeremy Irons(whose great in everything) as Alfred..and then Batman didn't do much fighting which I guess I understand since he's the only one that doesn't have powers but they should've had some cool tech that gave him more power and let him be in the fights more..I was disappointed that they didn't fight Darkseid and as much as I love Ciaran Hinds I hate that they cast him as a completely cg character who really looked worse in this one cuz of even more unnecessary cg especially his armor which looked cool at times but it was just too much of it..Darkseid and his minion Dasaad I think his name is looked dope though and Menacing but then nothing happened with that and I guess it never will and then the ending even though it tried to explain that whole Flash scene from bvs it wasn't a good place to end the movie when we know most likely we'll never see what happens next and why did the Martian disguise himself as MARTHA!!? why was Lois even needed other than Pussy Control for Superman?...my main issues are the overuse of cg to the point where even the actors looked cg and then too much slow mo(which I know is impossible not to have in a Zack Snyder movie)including a couple scenes with some music that just doesn't go good together.. Barry is funny to me though he goes thru all that shit to save that one girl then he leaves her in the middle of the street to get hit by some other car instead of putting her on the sidewalk and also where did Flash get his suit? I think it would've been better if he had a low budget suit at first but then he worked with Bruce to make the suit he has...but anyways I know I'm complaining alot but it was still fun and even after 4 hrs I didn't really want it to end ...I'd give this a 7/10 and I hope it's successful...I'm glad Snyder can move on now after 10 years in DC world almost cuz man Dawn Of the Dead 2004 is my all time favorite zombie movie and I love the shit out of 300 and Watchmen was underrated so I hope we can see him evolve into a better director and shed some of his old tricks for new ones sorry to yap

  • I know I am off topic here but can we fans do the same for games of thrones season 8...because synder version was just epic....

    • No because this vesion is original andb4 yr old and previous justice league was doover

  • I love you chris!

  • It looked black-and-white

  • This movie was garbage, all your credibility was just lost

  • the next wrong to right: Batman and Robin : The Schumacher cut

    • Ive never seen a movie with that much error and stupid shit all over the place

  • I think this justice league deserve more ranking i think this definitely was A tier movie!

    • Nice Chris as alot better agree deeper darker image and richer backstory prefer Zack Snyder's suckerpunch as confusing movie as bring back Tim Burton vision

  • Snyder needs to do Green Lantern "Justice". Tired of WB's inconsistency. They're the reason why the DCEU's potential is never met.

  • He gets no credit for remaking a movie and getting to use hindsight. He spent 4 hours to give you a movie that's on par with Iron Man 2 when it should have been better than any other superhero movie ever.

  • they were all included..

  • they were all included..

  • I agree with you. Heard other reviews say oh, only x amount was different and I'm like did we watch the same masterpiece? It is a little fan serviced and a couple choices made knowing that this version of the DCEU is over. But as far as Lois is the key and the apocalypse versions in everyone's head has to actually deal with who is Bruce Kent's actual father. It could've been very Jerry Springer in the wrong hands.

  • This movie was still garbage, as was all his other movies

    • B+ Chris? Really? It was an A+ all the way.

  • Justice League Snyder Cut is so re-watchable. Joss Whedon's Justice League (2017) I only watched once.

    • Flash pushing a truck of random people to safety at 50 mph vs the world being destroyed and running so fast he reverses time. Gee, I wonder which is the better ending.

  • I couldn't do it. I made it an hour before I had to turn it off. It was just so boring. Maybe I'll give it a second chance but it was going nowhere to me.

  • I hated this movie so much.... couldn’t find a single redeeming aspect.

  • Black and white.

  • That is one of my things I also dont like about movies.. 2 or 3 hours max! This will allow movies to be 4, 5, 6 hours long on streaming.. Watch an hour or 2 at a time and continue it later like a tv series.

  • Nice Chris as alot better agree deeper darker image and richer backstory prefer Zack Snyder's suckerpunch as confusing movie as bring back Tim Burton vision

  • Ive never seen a movie with that much error and stupid shit all over the place

    • Someone pls look at when the Amazon Queen shot an arrow at Steppenwolf !!!!! its the most horrible CGI ive ever seen . pls look it slowmo its reall really bad

    • Diana save people from a Bomb in a Museum or someshit then Blow up the place herself .. when she look at aquaman video she says its a water breather then Bruce wayne say he was breathing air when he talked to him , then she said its a mix blood ( A MIX BLOOD ) WTTTTFFFF did she never saw a atlantean in her life ( everytime they talk under water they remove the water around them or when Aquaman trained on the surface with Vulko for hours and days ' did Vulko hold hes breath the entire time) or when Aquaman's mother went to the surface and had a kid did she hold her breath for years??? i can go on and on with Lots of Fail CGI or dumb stuff like Cyborg piloting the Nightcrawler when Alfred was controling it miles aways with a cumputer but Cyborg need to be Sit in the Car WWWWTTTFFFF Snyder pls

  • Joker was badass in The Snyder Cut. The scene where Joker laughs while an Evil Superman is about to murder and obliterate everyone is exactly what The Joker would do in a post apocalyptic DC Universe. Loved it.

  • Waaaaay better than Justice League and hands down more entertaining to watch! I saw this with my son at 10pm and didn't know what to expect and before we knew it it was 2am and we were staring at each other in awe at how cool of movie this was.

  • Still made Batman come off lame...

  • i wish i never seen the first release. it would of made more of an impact not knowing the story line watching this one. i did start to feel the length towards the end because of this. im not a fan of the guy playing Joker. i didn't like him in suicide squid either. very predictable and generic. i agree the point where they had joker i was done and wanted it over. the one thing for me that came to mind was how they didnt have Darkside in the first one. seems like a pretty important character.

  • its actually amazing, and as a long time jsutice league fan im so happy where this is taking off, also whenever superman comes in I get goosebumps

  • B+ Chris? Really? It was an A+ all the way.

  • Flash pushing a truck of random people to safety at 50 mph vs the world being destroyed and running so fast he reverses time. Gee, I wonder which is the better ending.

  • So I have never seen 2017 justice league so I’ve nothing to compare it to. I really enjoyed it probably the best dc movie so far looked great at points some humour didn’t work for me and some of the cgi is abit meh, but the fact it’s a completely different cut and it still looks this good, and having a 4 hour film is pretty great.

  • No the aspect ratio has always been 16:9 format presented in all studio projections. That's the anamorphic standard......before that was the letterbox edition formats.

  • That T-shirt......I need it.

  • This is an excellent film 4 hours for me flew by unnoticed. There are films in which you want to speed up the fight scenes slightly, but here you want to watch and watch this spectacle, especially in 3d format. Who is interested found it here 3d-hd club. After watching this movie, I immediately started watching Justice League 2017 and say that I caught face palm to say nothing. I was surprised at how bad the movie was. For sure, many who watched the 2017 film can refuse to watch Zack Snyder's Justice League. So how did you spoil your impressions of the first film

  • This version was exactly what I wanted. Being 4 hours, and pretty much just the whole, little edited mind dump of Snyder, of course it dragged a bit in some parts, I expected it. But I had fun watching the whole thing, the story and characters felt more like what DC was trying to do with animated series in some parts, like The Dark Night Returns. The cinematography was great, and the bonds between the team actually felt real, and stayed consistent with their characters/ personalities. I kept pausing the movie at some parts and imagining what it would look like in the comics, the whole movie feels like a comic come to life, which is just what I really wanted for the og Justice League film. Not some forced, campy Infinity War knockoff in 2017, it's like they forgot who the characters were and tried to force them into goofier personas.

  • It is very Enjoyable I give it A-

  • I love it.

  • Now I want the 3 hour long Avengers Endgame

  • Interesting what you said about the length of the movie. I think this review suffers from the same thing: too long. You basically said the same thing 3 times. 😉

  • I hate that so many of the shots in this movie were obviously not framed to be shot in this aspect ratio. There are so many shots with lots of headspace for no reason.

  • The only complain I have is Flash turning back time and saving the day. There should be some bad consequence of turning back time, like the one in the anime, but apparently there's none here, making it a convenience plot.

    • @S C its clearly something he doesnt do because he has a rule against it. We probably would have seen more in the next 2 movies.

    • @S C unlike time travel where you can go back decades ago i think reversing time will exhaust flash which will limit him only few minutes of reversing ability

    • @Prabhat Singh yea, but still, isn't "reverses time" a pretty OP ability with zero consequence? But it's very cool to watch, and the best sconce in the movie!

    • He didnt turn back time in anime he traveled in time. here he reverses the time both are different

  • Chris I think we all deserved this one, Snyder and all the fans. I just didn’t really enjoy the slowmo on the sledgehammers bringing down the gates

  • Is this fo real ? Lol

  • Great movie it was even better than I thought and I knew it was going to be good.

  • Some of the cringy stuff in Josstice league was actually from Zach Snyder, but he cut it out the second time because he knew people didn't like that, so Joss took the fall for it.

    • Can you source some examples? I'd be interested to know

  • Chris u make me feel a reviewer damn this review is good not great but insane

  • 2 critiques: A bit too much slow mo and revealing Martian Manhunter as Superman's mom being a bad look for all 3 characters involved Overall I loved it and watched it straight through

    • @lord donk lol yeah I know I didn't word my comment very well

    • Martian manhunter isnt his mom. Martian manhunter was pretending to be his mom. Martian manhunter is the army general.

  • One thing I didn't like about Martian Manhunter is that he was fully CGI. it's was a in the uncanny valley for me. Why didn't they take a leaf out of Marvel's book and make him like Vision and have the actual actor wear a load of prosthetics?

    • They were working from home for 6 months. Not a lot of time and they had a lot of covid restrictions.

  • i didnt have any respect for you before, and now i have even less (yes thats possible). Tell that to zods snapped neck.......

    • Superman has to kill zod. Youre an idiot

    • We all care so much

  • Give me all you got! Had me cracking up

  • Yeah.....it is proven by this movie and the Snyder-verse that Zack Snyder can do awesome (?) visuals and action scenes (without the damn slow-mo) but he cannot tell a story or do dramatic scenes or write a decent script to save his life. This movie had SOOOO MANY objective flaws and issues I cannot even! He loves comics but he doesn't understand them. Say what you want about Joss Whedon but he actually knows how to direct a movie and write a decent script.

  • Great redemption for zach, But ezra miller is NOT funny.

  • 1. Original version - 6/ 10 movie, meh , mediocre movie 2. 2020 version 8,5/10 movie , very very good movie ! Actually the best movie I've seen from 2020-2021 period

  • Amazing movie ! Finally I enjoy a movie after 2020 emptiness

  • I will watch this 4 HOUR FUCKING LONG movie again!! That’s how happy I felt with this cut

  • It's simple math, now that you have more, just skip what you don't want to watch. I don't understand the whole argument about the length of the movie. Everyone seemed to be ok watching long-ass series on various digital platforms, heck some people binge watch 6 hours straight.

  • "I'm always going to be on the side of filmmakers".... 8:50 yeaaaa definitely earned a downvote from me.

    • What why? He himself is an aspiring filmmaker so of course he will support other filmmakers.
