Mae Abdulbaki, Screen Rant

To be sure, Snyder’s Justice League is tonally consistent, whereas Whedon’s was not, with the subplots ultimately running parallel to get the characters on the same page eventually. There’s an effort made to tell a cohesive story and it works in some respects… The film still won’t be for everyone. But, despite everything, it has its fair of shining moments. There’s a clear direction Snyder’s Justice League has that the 2017 version of the film does not, and for that alone viewers can appreciate this film a whole lot more because of it.

Matt Zoller Seitz, Roger Ebert

Zack Snyder’s Justice League is so fragmented that it could’ve been titled “32 Short Films about the Justice League.” It often makes momentous promises or sets up seemingly important relationships which it promptly forgets. It’s so bombastic that it makes Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice seem modest. It will mainly please the people who clamored for it. Even fans of the genre might consider it a bit much. It owes as much to rock concerts, video games, and multimedia installations as it does to commercial narrative filmmaking. It’s maddening. It’s monumental. It’s art.

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

You can see from a mile away where it is all going – or rather from three hours and 55 minutes away – and for me, the Justice League still does not have the colour, flair, snap and zap of the Avengers in the MCU; it comes to life most in the regular cityscape settings that it seems keen to avoid. But there is something absorbing about this operatically strange twilight-of-the-superhero-gods that might yet turn out to be daybreak… Snyder’s film may be exhausting but it is engaging. Justice is served.

Siddhant Adlakha, Observer

Zack Snyder’s Justice League may feature altered scenes from its chopped-up counterpart, but it’s unlikely to play any differently to general audiences — apart from feeling like more of a slog. Its mere existence guarantees that someone, somewhere will be satisfied, but the film’s improvements are hardly enough to fix what was, now quite apparently, a flawed endeavor from the start.

Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist

While it feels like cultural factions have been fighting over Zack Snyder’s Justice League for years, the winners ultimately will be the fans. ‘ZSJL’ is a fan cut as much as it is a director’s cut, with all the indulgence that the notion applies. As for any continuation of the story, as the fans hope, that seems gravely unlikely considering the direction Warner Bros is headed. But for a director who had to abandon his grand superhero project because of a family tragedy and because a big movie studio tried to wrestle control of the film, which was too much to bear at the time, one supposes, this postmortem collectible for die-hard, is about as good as an outcome as one could get.

Jordan Farley, Games Radar

But for all the controversy that has surrounded Justice League from its troubled production on, it’s almost a relief to have Snyder’s version out in the world, and the question of what should have been answered. Neither the magnum opus some may have expected, nor the catastrophic car-wreck of the original, it’s a fascinating, flawed climax to Snyder’s grand DCEU experiment.

Matt Singer, Screen Crush

For long stretches, Zack Snyder’s Justice League feels more like a rough assembly than a director’s cut. It appears to include every single shred of footage Snyder shot, no matter how superfluous to the story. It will absolutely delight the hardest of hardcore Snyder heads. I’m not sure how more casual viewers will react to a longer and bleaker version of the same movie they already saw and dislike.

Jenna Anderson, Comic Book

The film is an unabashed and cathartic labor of love — one towards Snyder’s daughter Autumn, one towards all of the fans who campaigned for it to see the light of day, one towards the kinds of compelling storytelling that the Justice League was initially founded on, and one towards the beautiful weirdness of the DC universe. At its core, it is also a well-executed, entertaining story about the power of human connection and inspiration, one that feels both timeless and timely despite being (mostly) conceptualized and filmed nearly half a decade ago.

Britany Murphy, Geeks of Color

I am happy to report that the intended vision is miles better than what audiences were subjected to back in 2017 and it was great to see a fully-realized trilogy (MoS, BvS and now ZSJL) from Snyder that kept the tone of his vision and the world-building surrounding it. Kudos to Snyder and his team for pulling off something that was indeed epic in scale and mythos, which showcases the characters, heroes and villains alike, in all of their complexities in the way Snyder wanted them to be seen.

Bilge Ebiri, Vulture

It’s not hard to look at this latest cut, the product of $70 million worth of VFX, reedits, and reshoots, and sense a newfound power in its vision of sacrifice and tragedy, in which parents toil to save their children, children toil to save their parents, where the dead rise, and where shattered pasts are rewritten and redeemed. The Snyder Cut has its share of problems — when you get the best of Snyder, you also get the worst — but it’s an undeniably passionate and moving work. It earns its self-importance.

Alonso Duralde, The Wrap

The result is a superhero epic cropped for Imax screens but designed for at-home viewing, where audiences can either binge the entire 242-minute running time or use the helpful chapter breaks (six parts plus an epilogue) to turn the movie into a serialized event. Either way, the end result is a very mixed bag; the enhanced running time allows Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio the opportunity to flesh out the story and the character introductions (and at this length, it dang well better) but at the same time, Snyder’s particular brand of storytelling, sound design, editing and visual sensibility is very much on display.

Alex Zalben, Decider

On the opposite end of the spectrum, while Whedon’s simplified plot helps provide explanations of what’s happening, there are times when Snyder’s myth-making is more satisfying, if less sensical. In the theatrical cut, Superman’s resurrection is tied to Batman feeling responsible for his death, which works better for Batman’s arc, but makes less sense as to why the heroes need Superman. In Snyder’s version, Steppenwolf invades because he knows Superman is gone; ergo, the heroes realize there’s something Steppenwolf must be afraid of, and they need to bring Superman back to defeat him. It’s plot over emotions, and I guess your mileage may vary depending on which side of the coin you think is more interesting.

Matt Goldberg, Collider

It is a longer version of 2017’s Justice League, but it is rarely better. There are some good additions here and there, but nothing to justify the vastly extended runtime. There’s nothing here that transforms the 2017 cut of Justice League into a better movie even if it’s now more in line with Snyder’s artistic sensibilities.

O οδηγός σύμφωνα με τον Zack Snyder για τον τρόπο που αξίζει να παρακολουθήσετε το Cut του Justice League είναι ο εξής:

Πρώτο διάλειμμα

Η ταινία ξεκινάει με το Κεφάλαιο 1, Don’t Count On It, Batman, που είναι μισή ώρα. Εκεί ο Batman προσπαθεί να ενώσει την ομάδα, ψάχνοντας τους υπερήρωες. Ακολουθείτε από το επίσης 30λεπτο κεφάλαιο 2 με τίτλο The Age Of Heroes, που θα αρχίζει να δίνει μεγαλύτερο βάθος στις υποπλοκές της και την δράση. Μετά ο Snyder προτείνει να γίνει το πρώτο διάλειμμα.

Κινηματογραφικό Διαλειμμα

Η ταινία φυσικά δεν έχει κάποιο διάλειμμα, αλλά εαν είχε προβληθεί στις αίθουσες θα είχε αυτό που προτείνει ο Snyder να κάνουν οι θεατές (σε διάρκεια 15 λεπτών) από το σπίτι στο Κεφάλαιο 4 με τίτλο Change Machine. Τα 3 και 4 καλύπτουν ένα πολύ μεγάλο κομμάτι της ταινίας και είναι 1 ώρα και 20 λεπτά. Παράλληλα, όπως αναφέρει ο σκηνοθέτης έχει το αγαπημένο του κομμάτι “Beloved Mother, Beloved Son”.

Η τελική ευθεία

Τα τελευταία 100 λεπτά (1 ώρα και 40 λεπτά) καλύπτουν τα τελευταία 3 κεφάλαια (μαζλι με αυτό του επιλόγου δηλαδή, που αποκάλυψε ο Snyder). Ίσως να θέλουν οι θεατές ένα διαλειμμα μετά το έκτο, αλλά θα μένει το 20λεπτο του επιλόγου που είναι πολύ κρίσιμο.

Τα κεφάλαια που θα χωρίζεται είναι τα εξής:

  • Don’t Count on It, Batman
  • The Age of Heroes
  • Beloved Mother, Beloved Son
  • Change Machine
  • All the King’s Horses
  • Something Darker
  • Epilogue

Η σύνοψη είναι η εξής: Στο ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, αποφασισμένος να διασφαλίσει πως η θυσία του Superman (Henry Cavill) δεν ήταν μάταια, ο Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) ενώνει τις δυνάμεις του με την Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) με σχέδιο να δημιουργήσει μια ομάδα υπερηρώων που θα προστατεύσει τον κόσμο από μια απειλή καταστροφικών διαστάσεων. Το έργο αποδεικνύεται πιο δύσκολο από ό,τι φανταζόταν ο Bruce, καθώς ο καθένας από αυτούς θα πρέπει να αντιμετωπίσει τους δαίμονες του παρελθόντος που τους έχει κρατήσει πίσω, αλλά θα πρέπει να τα ξεπεράσουν για να μπορέσουν να σχηματίσουν την λεγεώνα των υπερηρώων. Τώρα ενωμένοι, οι Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) και The Flash (Ezra Miller) ελπίζουν να μην είναι πολύ αργά για να σώσουν τον πλανήτη από τους Steppenwolf, DeSaad και Darkseid και τις φρικτές προθέσεις τους.

Δεν θα χρησιμοποιηθεί ούτε ένα πλάνο από το αντίστοιχο του Josh Whedon. Παράλληλα έχουμε και τα επιπλέον γυρίσματα που γίνονται πλέον, τα οποία θα δώσουν ένα ακόμα 5λεπτο περίπου. Σ’ αυτά θα δούμε και τους Jared Leto (Joker) και Joe Manganiello (Deathstroke).
