Justice League finds Batman fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Wonder Woman, to work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against a newly awakened threat .
Review: I've seen this film 3 times now and it's not because it's a masterpiece that I feel needs to be seen over and over again. It's because I wanted to make sure I knew how I felt because I really wanted this film to be perfect. On a film quality level it lacks a lot. The narrative is very basic - bad alien comes to Earth to take it over and a team is formed to stop him - the CGI at times is rushed and very poor for one of the most expensive films of the year, tonally it shifts because of the multiple directors, and finally the biggest mistake was not continuing the established emotional and critically acclaimed music from the previous DCEU films (instead we got a generic and poorly nostalgic score). However, this film does more right than wrong. Every one of the heroes has plenty of great moments, lines, and screen time. Flash is hilarious, Batman is cool as always, Wonder Woman is just as wonderful. Aquaman and Cyborg are badass, and we finally get Superman as he was meant to be seen from the comics. DC fans get to see their favorite characters kick butt on the big screen and if you are a comic fan you can't help but have a grin on your face. The added humor by Joss Whedon created a more universally liked film for the DCEU and one that the whole family can go see and have a great time. This film on it's own is a lot of fun, but it's still a generic mess and compared to what it should have been, is still a big disappointment.
Bottom Line: A really fun time for DC fans and kids.

I don't think giving one score to a film is fair. There's a lot of aspects that go into making a film. Some are made as an art form trying to convey a message, others are simply entertainment, and some attempt to be both, So I want to answer the main questions that any kind of filmgoer would want to hear in a friendly conversation. My reviews are meant to be simple, quick, and very informal :).
