Zack Snyder’s Justice League is double the pleasure and double the fun. It may be painstakingly long… but it is good nonetheless. Check out the details in my parents guide movie review.
Zach Snyder’s Justice League drops on HBO Max today, March 18th! The original film was directed by both Synder and Joss Whedon and many complained that the film felt very uneven due to this fact. I may be one of the odd critics out because, I did not hate the original film as many others did, in fact I enjoyed it. Sure it had its flaws, but overall I thought it was an entertaining film. When Snyder announced he was working on it and will release his cut, I was super stoked, until I found out it was over 4 hours long! Check out all the details in my parents guide movie review.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Parents Guide
Fuelled by his restored faith in humanity, and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly-awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes in Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League Age Appropriate
Lets take a look at what parents need to know before allowing their kids to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Language: Zack Snyder’s Justice League has some stronger language than the original, with words including: f*ck, b*tch, a** and sh*t.
Violence: The movie is dark, like many DC films, and contains lots of violence with hand to hand combat, weapons, guns and there are even shootings and death. One scene shows a man attempting to shoot children during a robbery.
This film runs over 4 hours long, so keep this in mind when your child wants to watch this, it may lose their attention or you may want to watch it in sections. One good thing about this long film is it is broken into 6 parts and an epilogue, so there are plenty of chances to pause the film for intermissions and pick it back up later.
Zach Snyder’s Justice League feels like a Snyder film, from the never-ending slow motion scenes, visuals paired with dramatic musical selections, to even the Snyder classic ‘Hallelujah‘ played during the end credit scenes. Synder is definitely a slow-motion master stylist with hero shots mid-air as they are about to punch or stab someone, and he did not hold back in his Justice League cut. Most importantly, the film finally feels like part of the Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman trilogy. It definitely has a darker tone, as was intended, and he himself has stated before, this version is more of an apocalyptic movie.
There is no denying that these are four long hours, but Synder did fans a favor breaking the film into 6 different parts with also an epilogue at the end. This allows viewers a chance to pause and pick up the film later. I surely did! This length also allows Synder to really delve deeper into the characters and their back stories, particularly that of Cyborg and The Flash. Their arrival finally makes “sense” in Synder’s version and produces much more likable characters.
Zack Snyder’s Wonder Woman is everything, I mean EVERYTHING! This is the Wonder Woman audiences want, strong, fierce, and totally bad-ass yet gentle at times. The beginning robbery scene highlights all of her most treasured traits and I believe it will have fans calling for Zack Snyder to make his way into the Wonder Woman sequels.
Most importantly, this version of Zack Snyder’s Justice League presents more of the classic Justice League aspects. Themes of being stronger together, instead of just heroes coming together to take on some evil forces. Fight scenes are highlighted with this teamwork theme and we begin to see the bonding evolve as the movie develops.
I do not want to give away too much and spoil the surprises, but in saying that, audiences will get some surprises, particularly in the epilogue. I still believe this version could have been trimmed down some but I was pleasantly surprised by how fast it went by for me. It would not surprise me one bit if the old Justice League falls by the wayside, and in time this version becomes the only one fans want to consider. There’s no going back now, and DC should take notice of fans opinions if they want to go toe to toe with their rivals in the future.
