Top 10 Rated Amber Heard Movies
1. Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021)
“Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” also known colloquially as the “Snyder Cut,” is a director cut of sorts for the 2017 American superhero film “Justice League.” As Zack Snyder was pulled from the project before its completion, this act serves as a course correction. The 2021 release is intended to be more faithful to his vision. Additionally, it is a sequel to 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”--another entry in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU).
The film’s cast includes Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, and Amber Heard. The film was very well-received by fans and critics alike, with many praising its more faithful adaptation of the source material.
IMDb – 8.0 / Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score – 94%
Critics Consensus: “An improvement over its predecessor, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is a more faithful adaptation of the comics--and will likely satisfy DC fans looking for a cinematic counterpart to their beloved graphic novels.”
