    Been watching interviews with the cast and they all really seem to get on well with each other. Apparently they are the best thing in the film.

    Quite a lot unexpected surprises in there too. Expecting Hal Jordan and I think that the Suicide Squad will show up. Arkham maybe.

    Not expecting much but that's probably a good thing.

    Gadot is refusing to do more films if Ratner is still involved.

    There was a screening last night and fanboys are loving it. Critics less so. Reviews will be up soon.

    They all seem to agrees they've finally got Superman right. That's about it. Better than Suicide Squad appatenly.

    There's 2 credits sequences. One at the start and one at the end. Again, fanboys going fucking nuts over these.

    Edit: WB are hiding the RT score until the day of release. Don't know how they can do that but the last film to do this was the last Fantastic Four.

    Things that are worse than Suicide Squad.

    1. Pouring molten steel into your urethra.

    That is all.

    The reviews I've read said that it's 2hrs of good characters (with the exception of cyborg) in a bad story.

    And that the infamous CGI 'tache removal has been done incredibly badly and makes superman look like a princess Leia-esque, uncanny valley Waxwork.

    Filmstarts (a German film site has released its first "social media impressions"). Quick translation of the tweets from several of the site's reviewers:

    #JusticeLeague is both a step forward and back for the #DCEU. Rounder on the whole than #BvS or #SSQ, but not as enthralling as #WonderWoman. Otherwise: humour and team chemistry top, action solid, villain weak.
    Two awesome action scenes and great heroes - especially the Flash - are responsible for #JusticeLeague being much better than the poor #BvS. CGI (#Moustachegate - nuff said) and the ever fatiguing final battle are the major weaknesses.
    #JusticeLeague is the most entertaining team-up DC film that skillfully combines the new characters with the old. The action is solid, the villain a creepy, quickly-forgotten CGI monster.
    Ezra Miller as the Flash is finally the comic relief that the DCEU was in urgent need of. So you can gloss over the fact that the effects weren't exactly of modern quality. #JusticeLeague is solid popcorn cinema.

    The Flash's little quips were painful in the videos so they must be holding back all the good stuff if he's a successful comic relief.

    Much in the trailer looks like really obvious green screen and BvS looked really shit at times, Bat mobile chase especially.

    I imagine they're referring to Captain Robot looking like a special effect out of Babylon 5.

    Bearing in mind that these are from German reviewers and I don't know if they were watching the German dubbed version or the original English version. The reason I point this out is because it has been known for irritatingly squeaky comic relief characters in the past in English to be made slightly more bearable in German dubs.

    I'm on the fence right now about The Flash based on the trailers. His "Oh, it's the batsignal" line was pretty poor.

    They sound like they've gone too far the other way in trying to make it funny. That's fine if the story is still good and the threat feels like a threat, otherwise it's a bunch of gruff men telling jokes in stupid outfits.

    Review embargo lifted.

    2 stars from Empire.

    Edit: It has one very minor spoiler.

    Edit 2: Looks like it's getting savaged by the critics.

    "it's consistently embarrassing to watch" is definitely a quote for the back of the bluray.

    1 star from the telegraph.

    2 star from the guardian.

    I can see Affleck quitting after this critical panning

    It is quite funny that they have rewarded the numbskulls who liked the 'tone' of the first raft of movies with a happy shopper avengers.
