Justice League: The Snyder Cut Review

22 Mar

-For the Uncensored!

In the dawn of cinema dwindling away, there is a reason why Justice League: The Snyder Cut means a lot to people. HBO Max, upon its premiere, on March 18th, crashed the site because everyone wanted to watch it at midnight. The story is almost a Ann Randian type of narrative that is long and creates such a weave of characters that only does permit the long form to see Snyders vision to completion. Over 4 hours long, it does represent Snyder’s major themes of heroism, mass worship, fear, and leadership in a world divided. All these themes sound so relevant in America 2021. When Steppenwolf says, “This world is divided. No Kryptonian. No Lanterns” (short for the hero Green Lantern), it feels oddly relevant. No one wants to work together. 

            The cast includes everyone from Gal Gadot, playing Wonder Woman, and Ben Affleck as Batman, to JK Simmons (from Oz’s Schillinger and Juno fame) and Amy Adams (Nocturnal Animals and Junebug fame) returning as Lois Lane from Man of Steele and Batman V. Superman. It was amazing to see all the names of each star have their own spot as they didn’t push them together on one title card. 

            The Snyder Cut bring us back to the end of BVS, and Superman’s last dying scream echoes around the world. When the mother boxes are found, that means Steppenwolf, who serves Darkseid (pronounced Dark Side), with the help of the Mother Box, almost took Earth. So the leaders of earth protected them, until Superman died.

            The scene where DarkSeid jumps off his ship, lands with his fingertips pressing in the dirt, and brings a handful of dirt in his hand, is awe inspiring. How could this character be so interesting when he has said nothing so far?

            The action scenes have the slow motion feel of Snyder’s 300 (2006), a Frank Miller comic. I didn’t look at my phone at all. I see why people were disappointed with the Whedon version of the film, but we’ll get to that later.

            They do get the sexual tension between Bruce and Diana. Even though Diana is still thinking about Steve Trevor. Batman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, and Princess Diana all have to be ready. Everyone has there pain and sorrow, and all of them are working to find themselves when the world has lost Superman.

            Steppenwolf finds that Earth, after 100,000 planets, has the equivalent of Anti-Matter, which is what Dark Seid was looking for.

            When Aquaman, and all the Justice League assemble, all they have to do is take down Steppenwolf. But not without Superman. The Motherbox can reanimate living and dead organisms, to change, or die. It brought back Barry Allan, or Cyborg, and so they use it to bring back Superman. You get that small hint of the dream that Bruce Wayne felt in Batman V Superman.

            I think the part that dragged was the first hour, but after that, it really did work. I think it had vision. I enjoyed a lot of the film. I think Zach Snyder deserves another chance at DC. I think he introduced a lot of themes that DC would run with like the Metahumans.

            Cyborg wants to link himself into the Unity, the three Mother Boxes, but Barry, the Flash is tripped up but it’s too late. The box explodes. But The Flash helps Cyborg enter the Unity, and when he’s confronted by his dead family, “come join us, you don’t have to be alone again” and he doesn’t fall for the trick. “I’m not broken, and I’m not alone.” 

            With the Mother Boxes destroyed, and with Steppenwolf killed in specular fashion, Dark Seid sees this, and he says, “We will use the old fashioned ways. Ready the Armada.” He even has a part where he sits in the famous sculpture, the Thinker, by Rodin. 

            The epilogue is about twenty extra minutes tying up all the loose ends. I won’t spoil the ending, because it needs to be experienced. I would definitely like to see Zach Snyder finish what he wanted to do. Snyder did in four hours what most Marvel films could not do. Tell a story. Create a complicated yarn into a visionary feast of darkness and light, and create a grand scope that is movie of 2021. Don’t let the Oscars fool you. Nobody cares about independent cinema anymore. 

            But most importantly, the movie, originally was plagued with studio interference, and with Snyder’s daughter, Autumn, committing suicide, forced him to leave the picture prematurely. DC hired Joss Whedon, but the horrible release and the mixed reviews didn’t help the 2017 cut either. This is the way Justice League needed to be watched. In its full veiny glory. 

            Final Analysis: 5/5
