Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR is enjoyable, even if at times it just feels like one big battle scene rather than an origin story of sorts. There's nothing quite like a scene in which Green Lantern calls Batman a "phenomenal douche bag" to let anyone more accustomed to the "Superfriends" Saturday morning cartoons of their '70s and '80s childhoods know that we're a long way from those days. Superheroes are now conveyed as deeply flawed, short-tempered, and misunderstood by humanity at large. The story is best enjoyed by those who are already familiar with such things as "Mother Boxes," "Parademons," and "Boom Tubes." The origins of Cyborg and Shazam are interesting, but it's all part of the frenzy that, at times, feels overwhelming, like trying to convey too much information and story in a limited amount of time.
