Product Description

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.

Amazon.ca

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

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.

the multiple parallel universe scenario has been used several times. I did not expect anything new from DC. To my surprise, they use this uver-used storyline as a support for their characthers and their multiple enemies. Fight scenes are well-orchestrated and not as over-whelming as in the slightly above-par "Public enemies" and the desastrous "Brainiac attack". It was great to see Green Arrow and his mate in action.

Animation is slick and in the right tone for such release. I liked the "Personnage" role definition. The Batman is as dark and cold as I ever saw him. Superman ego is bigger than his shoulders. The final dialogue between Batman and Flash is memorable. The gang of alternate heroes is well selected and defined. You almost believe in this totally Sci-Fi story. Beware, this is a lot whole closer to Star Trek than it is to Adam West's Batman. Some good Modern DC stuff !!!!

Extras : Some great trailers, which you probably have all seen. The full TV premieres of the classic TY shows Wonder Woman and Aquaman (fun to have on DVD... for free). 4 unreleased episodes of JLA. But hold on, there were never released because they served as the base for DC full lenght movies. They are then redundant, but cool to have.

With DC, the price tag is always steep. This time, though, they loaded the DVD with all sorts of goodies. The Blu-ray version will become a POP Culture collector item.

i gotta say, DC continues to impress with their animated offerings.i
liked everything about this latest offering.not only was the story
really good,but the voice acting was stellar in my mind.the fight
scenes were spectacular,but they didn't overpower the rest of the
movie.i also really liked the opening title sequence.i thought it
really stood out.the movie also had a dark edge to it,which i really
liked.definitely adult oriented,which suits me fine.all i can say is i
hope they keep up the quality and make sure the movies continue to have
the adult edge to them.as an aside,there's a great bonus short included
called The Spectre,which i recommend watching as well.for me,Justice
League: Crisis on Two Earths is a 4/5

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.

I had seen a few reviews on this item, most were positive, & I agree.
Story is engaging, without seeming like tooo much of a re-presentation of an old concept.
I could only wish that it were 20 minutes longer.

I just received this DVD last week and have watched it at least 3 times. The bonus features are awesome! I liked how they went behind the scenes to promote the various straight to DVD movies that have come out such as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Public Enemies (Batman/Superman), the latest Batman venture, Under the Red Hood, etc.

I also love the short film about the superhero Spectre. I never knew about this superhero before I saw this short. There is also a bonus 2 parter Justice Leaque of America film at the end on Disc 2.

A really good buy and I highly recommend it if you're into DC Comics.
