Overall, I’d give “Justice League” a resounding “meh.” Maybe it was because I’m such a Marvel fanboy, I don’t know, but a lot of the movie left me with an aftertaste of disappointment.

One big issue I had with “Justice League” was The Flash. The character is relatable and funny, but I kept getting Quicksilver vibes. The two had very similar scenes in “Justice League” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” respectively, and it seemed that the writers at DC wanted to cash in on Marvel’s marketability. A key difference between The Flash and Quicksilver is that Barry had almost no serious moments. It made him seem like he was just present for comic relief.

Another thing that annoyed me to no end was the garbage CGI. It’s 2017, there’s no good reason DC’s graphics department is still lacking. Cyborg looked like a cartoon character with half of a human face photoshopped in. Steppenwolfe, the villain, was even worse. He looked like he was ripped right out of a cutscene for a mediocre fighting game released in 2009.

The writers didn’t allow the to clash nearly enough, so it felt less like a team and more like a bunch of angry demigods punching a lizard person.

All things considered, Cyborg was amazing. I’m definitely biased since I grew up with “Teen Titans,” but I thought Cyborg was easily the best character in the movie, and the only reason this didn’t have a lower score.
