How does 'Justice League' stack up to other DC superhero movies?

Our critics review “Justice League,” where Ben Affleck’s Batman and Gal Gadot’s Super Woman assemble a team of heroes to avenge Superman’s death and save the planet; “Mudbound,” where a white man and a black man return home to rural Mississippi after fighting in World War II; “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” starring Denzel Washington as a gifted and idealistic defense attorney who eventually finds himself in trouble.
