Just a week before hitting wide release, the social media embargo on Zack Snyder’s Justice League has broken and a variety of critics have been sharing their reactions on Twitter (the review embargo won’t be lifted until Tuesday, Nov. 14). So what’s the consensus?
Well, it’s better than Batman V. Superman for a start.
Overall, the reactions sound somewhat mixed, but skew a bit more to the positive side. We won’t know for sure until official reviews start dropping, but it’s looking like the critical consensus will be that Justice League is better than Man of Steel and Batman V. Superman, but not as good as Wonder Woman. That actually makes me excited to finally see it!
Here are some of the reactions making the rounds on Twitter right now:
#JusticeLeague is better than BvS and #SuicideSquad – it's lean, mean & packed w/ superhero action. I dug most of its lighter moments & I think it has one of the best action sequences ever in a DCEU movie. And of course Wonder Woman steals the show. pic.twitter.com/rW3UjpBUMk

I saw #JusticeLeague! Here’s what I thought. There are ton of things I’d change but it comes down to this: I had a blast! I got to see the team together and I had fun watching it. Ezra Miller steals the movie and #WonderWoman was perfect! pic.twitter.com/rgCI9fUuTs

#JusticeLeague is fine. It's more coherent & less idiosyncratic than Batman v Superman (which I loved, so make of that what you will), and tries very hard to lighten up on the gloom & doom of the DC universe. There are jokes and everything!

SO I saw #JusticeLeague -twice. Still under embargo, but: This is a fun superhero flick. Funny but still hero adventure. Reminds me of JL Unlimited ep. Likable interaction amongst recognizable heroes. There is a villain problem (no worse than Marvel's) – @aaronsagers

Justice League is better than expected, but not a home run. The interaction between the team is a lot of fun. The film sends the DCEU in a hopeful direction in line with where the brand should be headed. Flash and Aquaman steal the show. Cyborg and villain are the weak links.

#JusticeLeague is good!
(And I can finally talk about it!)
Wonder Woman is wonderful, Aquaman is surprisingly cool, Flash is hilarious, Batman is drunk, the story is coherent, and it's all surprisingly funny. It's not perfect, but really enjoyable!

To sum up: Justice League is not a trainwreck, so there’s no need to panic! It sounds like we’ll be in for a fun time when the film hits theaters on Nov. 17; just don’t expect it to be the next Dark Knight or anything.
