The reviews for Justice League are in and the news is mixed, with the film currently sitting at an uninspiring 51 on Metacritic.
This score on the film review aggregator, displaying scores out of 100 for all the latest releases in film and TV, puts Justice League just ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (44) at this stage.
So far there have been 31 reviews compiled by Metacritic for Justice League, and by comparison, BvS’s score was generated by 51 reviews. So there is still room for change for the latest DCEU effort, but the bad news is that these scores tend to go down rather than up as new reviews come in.
The general feeling seems to be that Justice League is an improvement on the likes of BvS and Suicide Squad (40 on metacritic) but a letdown following the very popular Wonder Woman (76).
Another metric which many fans gauge a film’s worth by is of course Rotten Tomatoes, who have rather ominously delayed their score for the film.
