The arrival of a heroic Lex Luthor--yes, you read that correctly--leads Superman, Batman, and the rest of the Justice League to confront their evil, alternate-universe identities in Crisis on Two Earths, a terrific addition to the DC Animated Universe (DCAU) line of direct-to-DVD animated features. Based on Grant Morrison's JLA: Earth 2 graphic novel, the action brings the core Leaguers (Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter, though not the Dark Knight, who stays behind to ruminate on the evils of his own world) to a second Earth where their villainous counterparts rule the roost as part of the Crime Syndicate. What ensues is a solid mix of drama and action that, surprisingly, doesn't end with a wall-to-wall brawl between Justice Leagues. Instead, the story takes intelligent forays into the reality of a world ruled by super-villains, and the consequences of intruding on that reality. Though the story is a reworking from the failed Justice League: Worlds Collide feature (which was designed to serve as a link between the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited series), Crisis on Two Earths never feels like a patchwork effort; rather, it's well conceived and stands solidly next to some of the best DCAU efforts. The scripting is supported by a solid cast that includes Mark Harmon as Superman, James Woods as Owlman (the alternate-world Batman), Chris Noth as the "good" Lex Luthor, and William Baldwin, who acquits himself well as Batman, but can't replace Kevin Conroy.

Extras are plentiful and include the gritty, Steve Niles-penned DC Showcase for The Spectre, which also turned up on the Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam DVD; the live action pilots for the '70s-era Wonder Woman with Lynda Carter and the unaired, threadbare Aquaman; two bonus episodes of Justice League, both dealing with alternate Earths; and a 30-minute look at the powers that be at DC Comics and the changes that have been wrought at the company. A handful of sneak peeks at upcoming and previously released DCAU DVD releases, including Batman: Under the Red Hood, round out the set. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

In a parallel Earth ruled by the Crime Syndicate, the Justice League must fight their evil doppelgangers in a battle that would be dead even, except that their malicious counterparts are willing to do the one thing Batman and Superman never would: kill.

3.0 out of 5 stars James Woods as Owlman - Buy It Aug. 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If there's 1 thing this movie is missing, it's a real showdown between Superman and Ultraman. It's true that there are definitely plenty of battle scenes between the Justice League and the Crime Syndicate, but it's unresolved because of world-ending stuff. The real highlight is Batman vs. Owlman. My only complaint there is that it seems Owlman has too much of an advantage over Batman. Don't get me wrong, I always enjoy seeing Batman unexpectedly lose and not win automatically "because he's Batman," but here it feels like it's just the opposite extreme. Maybe he was losing on purpose for the final turnaround. Still, it's worth owning if only because of James Woods as a sociopath.

4.0 out of 5 stars crisis on two earths May 20 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I liked the Justice League TV series more than the movie. In the series, there was also some episode that was similar to this movie. For this one, the villains did not appeal to me. If they were more similar in character to their counter parts, it may be more interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but Not Great April 7 2013
By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If you enjoy superhero cartoons you'll enjoy this one. It's a well executed piece of work with outstanding production values, a tight storyline and a polished finish. But... Like most of the more recent DC Animated Universe (DCAU) movies to come out, it just doesn't have the depth and resonance of Bruce Timm's earlier work. You know - the stuff from back when all the shows really did make up a cohesive universe with its own continuity.

These days... the characters aren't quite so three dimensional; the dialogue not quite so mature. Perhaps as a result I find that I just plain don't care quite so much about either the characters themselves or the world they inhabit. I definitely get the feeling that Timm is more of a pure producer these days. That he isn't so directly involved in the actual writing.

For those deeply entrenched in the history of the DC comic book universe, this is a movie that references, but is far from married to the "Crisis" meta-series in DC comics. Fundamentally it is its own work, and needs to be taken as such. Personally, I think that was a wise move. You just can't compress something the size and scope of the comic book Crisis into the length of a movie and not wind up with a total mess.

Another real achievement that the creators of this work can be proud of is that they did manage to make the character of "Owl-Man" (Batman's alternate universe evil double) a credible and non-ridiculous opponent: surely a feat well nigh on par with making Shakespearian comedy actually funny.

But... in the end I find that I can't help but come back to where I began. This is a good movie. It is fun to watch. But it's not in the same league as Bruce Timm's earlier stuff. The stuff that made me proud to be a fan of the superhero genre. The stuff that easily held up as at least as intelligent as any of the live action dramas made for "grown-up" TV - if not considerably more so.

Theo.

Justice League Crisis on Two Earths is yet another in a long line of both DC and Marvel mini-movies that seem to be popping up with increasing frequency these days and is about average for the breed. (i.e. - pretty good.) The hook this time is an alternate earth on which the Justice League has been practically wiped out and our Justice League is recruited by an alternate good guy Lex Luthor to save them. Simple as that.

The animation is good, but not stellar and the plot at times is pretty ridiculous even by DC Universe standards. And unlike some of the more recent DC movies like Supergirl's origin in Superman/Batman Apocalypse or the Wonder Woman movie; I never really could connect with the storyline and it's characters. I'd rate the plot and character development at a 3.

However when it comes to action, this movie does exceed in spades! From the beginning with Lex Luthor's escape to our world; it's one battle after another with super heroes battling super villains at a drop of the hat. And there's something really neat about Superman versus Ultraman or Superwoman versus Wonder Woman. It's non-stop action. Overall, I'd rate the action a solid 4 stars.

Like all these DC & Marvel Bluray movies; this disc is loaded with extras. There's a 10 min. short on The Spectre which has been done art nouveau style complete with scratches and spots. It reminded me of an old Bogart film. There's also a 30 min. documentary on the effects of 9/11 on the DC Universe from Identity Crisis to Alternate Universes. And in addition, trailers on Under the Red Hood, Superman/Batman Public Enemies, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern First Flight. And as usual, these are not your normal trailers, but extended mini-documentaries that range from 8 to 12 minutes long!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect, But It's Kinda Close Feb. 28 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've always been interested in the whole Mirror Universe thing, and different series like DC Comics and Star Trek have done a really good job with it, so when I heard about this movie coming out, I knew I wouldn't be able to let myself not see it.

I had my reservations, though. I had read Grant Morrison's graphic novel "Earth 2" which focuses on our JLA against the CSA, and while that was rather well done, I knew how muddled up the history of DC Comics is (for whatever reason, they feel they have to redo everything every decade or so and make things even more confusing than they already are). This movie's writers had a lot of alternate evils do go through and work with, but fortunately, they didn't disappoint.

Both our guys and their darker reflections were brilliantly depicted, right down to their voice actors. Mark Harmon (most famous as the lead of the TV drama NCIS, Gibbs) carries the strength and heart to play Superman, while Josh Keaton (currently known as Peter Parker in the Spectacular Spider-Man series) and Vanessa Marshall, who are usually smaller-time, comedic voice actors add a humorous, colourful flare to The Flash and Wonder Woman. Jonathan Adams seems to be channeling Carl Lumby as the Martian Manhunter, but manages to do a good job giving you both a familiar feel and a touch of something new to the character. William Baldwin as Batman I was iffie on when I first heard it, however it grew on me over time, as did Chris Noth's Luthor. I guess since this version of Batman was a bit more cerebral than standard versions, Baldwin's calm portrayal was suitable and added almost a sympathetic edge to it that even the great Kevin Conroy sometimes lacked.
