Justice League

When is too much just too much? I don't know about you, but my tolerance for superheroes and Computer Generated Imaging is running pretty low; I'm sure I'm out of step.

Director Zach Snyder ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice") continues to do what he does best: PG-13 action movies based on comic-book characters. In addition, the script-writing team is exemplary, headed by Chris Terri ("Argo") and Joss Whedon ("Avengers: Age of Ultron"). The central issue this time is the discovery of three boxes which, when combined, can generate enough energy to destroy the world.

Despite this feeling of overkill, they are all here. Look at this cast!

Part of this huge cast:
  • Gal Gadot ("Keeping up With the Joneses") Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, who brings the fighting power we take for granted, also offers warmth and grace to the group.
  • Ben Affleck ("The Accountant") Batman/Bruce Wayne is inspired by Superman's humanity. He wants to bring him back to life because "the world needs Superman."
  • Ray Fisher ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice") Victor Stone/Cyborg has never been dead before; now he's not sure if he's grateful to his scientist father for bringing him back.
  • Jason Momoa ("Frontier") Aquaman/Arthur Curry is Mister Macho, until... Oh, wait until you see for yourself.
  • Ezra Miller ("Suicide Squad") The Flash/Barry Allen - Now you see him, now you don't. This kid brings energy and enthusiasm plus a big dose of hero worship. He's a delight. He asks Batman, "What's your super power?" To which Batman replies, "I'm rich."
  • Amy Adams ("Big Eyes") Lois Lane will always regret how poorly she coped with Clark Kent's death.
  • Diane Lane ("Trumbo") Martha Kent has a new problem. The bank is repossessing the family farm.
  • J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") Commissioner Gordon has an old problem: damage wrought by Batman when he comes to the rescue.
  • Jeremy Irons ("Their Finest") Alfred Pennyworth always takes care of things for Master Wayne.
  • Henry Cavill ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E.") is Superman/Clark Kent; here he comes to save the day.
This one will make a lot of money. I looked at the screening audience in the theater and the young men were eating it up, particularly The Flash. Women liked looking at Superman and Aquaman. Different strokes...
