Gayle On Film: 'Justice League'

Gayle On Film: 'Justice League'

Justice League: B+ NO SPOILERS: Batman has got a problem. Earth is once again in peril and reeling from the death of Superman, so the "rich" guy (his words) with toys needs to build a team. He knows Wonder Woman is a lock to join him. The Flash (Ezra Miller) would be a great find if he can track him down. Aquaman (Jason Gamboa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) need a little more convincing, but time isn't on Batman's side. Super villain Steppenwolf is seeking to subject the planet to his dark powers, and like many films of this type, the villain is seeking pieces to a powerful enigma to get exactly that, and he's not afraid to wield his electro-axe to get it. Matter of fact, there's a lot of wielding of power as if you're watching the feats of strength in a Festivus gathering in this action-heavy offering. View Now
