The overall consensus of these brief first reactions seems to come to a conclusion that Snyder’s vision is a massive improvement on the original version of the DC film.
With the embargo having finally lifted for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, critics have begun publishing their first thoughts on the film, and the overall response seems to be very positive.
The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez described the film as “FREAKIN’ AWESOME” based on his three times watching the film so far. He went on to particularly praise the amazing score produced by Junkie XL and noted it’s “action-packed” despite the four-hour time.
Critics generally concurred the expanded run time has offered the director extra time to explore characters and develop on the story of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman. Snyder has always had an immense talent for creating huge visual spectacle and this seems to shine in some greatly improved action sequences.
