While the full-on review embargo for Justice League doesn’t lift until Wednesday of next week at 2:50 AM, some critics had a chance to see the film already, and the embargo for social media reactions is officially lifted.
So now, after years of anticipation, we finally have our first idea of what to expect from the Justice League film. On the heels of Batman v Superman, fans were incredibly concerned that it would feel an awful lot like that. However, based on these initial reviews, it sounds like the franchise is heading in a more viewer-friendly direction.
Check out some of the social media reactions below!
#JusticeLeague is clunky & uneven as hell, but it also gets the characters right and has a lot of fun along the way. When it’s over DC’s vision for these heroes going forward will make sense.
It’s a very small but very vital step forward. I dug it. pic.twitter.com/FrWkhBe69v

As with BvS, I did have certain issues but they weren’t big enough to ruin my overall experience. I’ll expand more when I do my full review.
Loved EZRA MILLER and JASON MOMOA.
I love that each character has equally amazing hero moments. Well-balanced. Simple. Fun. pic.twitter.com/ahOaLhrh6x

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

Justice League is not a perfect movie. It has story "flaws" and a simple, CGI villain.
BUT, more importantly, it gets the heroes right. Every member of the League is fantastic and it's tough to choose a favorite.
It's a ton a fun, start to finish.

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 was good & very fun. It’s going to be popular w/audiences, not only fans but mainstream viewers & families.

Those hoping for an instant classic may be disappointed here, but it does sound like critics have mostly come out with a positive slant here. And more than anything else, it sounds like DC nailed it where it counted: the characters. So long as they continue down that route, they can fix any narrative flaws in future films.
LRM will be seeing Justice League Tuesday of next week (sadly couldn’t make the Monday screening) but won’t have a chance to actually post our full review until Wednesday, but keep an eye out on LRM Exclusive for our reaction immediately following the screening!
