Is The Snyder Cut A Better Movie? It’s Complicated – Movie Review
The much anticipated and highly debated Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the director’s cut is finally out on HBO Max.
For most people, you fall into one of two camps, the Snyder fans who have been campaigning and clamoring for this movie since Snyder revealed years ago that it existed. And then those on the other side who probably weren’t fans of the original Justice League and felt there was no saving it. For these two sides, it doesn’t matter what Snyder does, they’re going to love it or hate it.
But what if you fall somewhere in the middle? What if you don’t have strong feelings one way or the other? You liked some of what the first Justice League was trying to do, but you could also tell that it has its problems as well. Does the Snyder Cut fix those?
It’s a complicated answer. For myself, I fall somewhere on the scale between the middle and the side that thought the first Justice League was a bad movie. It had some great ideas but between Zack Snyder, Joss Whedon, and Warner Bros meddling it fell short of what it could have been. I didn’t think the issues the movie had could be fixed by adding in a few more hours of footage, but I was willing to give it a chance.
I’ve said in the past that if Snyder actually does a good job on this movie, I’d be one of the first ones to admit that I was wrong. So here it goes…
I was wrong. Kind of.
