Released a year after ‘Batman Vs Superman’, Zach Snyder’s 2017 film ‘Justice League’ is a new addition to the host of films available on Netflix.

Following the tragic death of Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) form a league of powerful beings to protect Earth from Steppenwolf.

With new recruits Aquaman (Jason Mamoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher), they struggle to work together as the newly-awakened evil wreaks havoc on earth.

One better aspect of the film is its incredible use of fast and slow motion. Every scene in which The Flash uses his powers is executed wonderfully. However, a lot of the other visual aspects are not as wonderful – the CGI of Steppenwolf has an awkward, video-game feel.

There is a rushed sense to this film, lacking character development and makes it somewhat difficult to understand if unfamiliar with the comics.

However, Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen acts as a much-needed comic relief amid the dark tones of the film and both Miller and Mamoa give charming performances alongside the polished characters of Wonder Woman and Batman.

It is a great watch, but it would benefit you to familiarise yourself with the characters first.
