Justice League: New Frontier is the second in a series of stand alone animated films (the first was Superman: Doomsday), and is a direct to video adaptation of the New Frontier comic by award winning writer and artist Darwyn Cooke, who was involved with this film as one of the writers and producers. Producer Bruce Timm was involved (the man behind the Justice League TV series) but this is a very different effort.

Set in the 1950s, the story features the origins of the Justice League heroes during an optimistic but still troubled time, with acknowledgments of the civil rights movement and paranoia about communism. We follow the origin story of Hal Jordan as Green Lantern as well as the Martian Manhunter, though Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Flash are also prominently featured. And of course, we get their formation as a team for the first time against a threat too great for anything but a combined effort.

Cooke is a fan of the "Silver Age" of comics, and there are a few more obscure comic characters making brief appearances too. As far as the main cast, it's Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks) as Superman, Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under) as Batman, Lucy Lawless (Xena) as Wonder Woman, Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser) as The Flash and David Boreanaz (Angel) as Green Lantern. The voice work is terrific, and even though Batman isn't in much of the film, Jeremy Sisto makes a huge new impression. The animation ranges from excellent to outstanding, and I think the retro montage created for the opening credits is worth the price of admission alone.

It should be noted this isn't for very young children, there's no swearing but there's an opening where an unknown character finishes writing a book about the malevolent force, and then shoots himself in the head.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but not as good as the comic book. Feb. 28 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great adaptation of the comic book. The animation mirrors the art of the book. The acting is good, especially Jeremy Sisto's interesting take on Batman. What a voice! Yet, the film felt a bit too short. If you have read the book, it takes its time building up the story and the characters, so that at the climax we actually feel for them. The book produced a lot of emotion for me. The film just didn't quite achieve that feeling, and that is a shame. If the producers had just allowed more time for the story, this could have been a truly great film -- a classic. That's why I'm giving it 4 stars.

It is a lot (a lot) better than the other animated comic book adaptations out there though. Worth purchasing. If only the Justice League animated series had taken some notes from this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie Aug. 20 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite super hero movies. It gives the best story of the origin of green lantern, whom happens to be one of my favorite super Heros. Everyone of my friends are greatly impressed with it on its retro look and feel to it. The story works great and the animation is well done. The movie has everything in it that even a novice fan would enjoy. It may seem like I am just rambling on, but this is one movie I tend to watch over and over again.

I enjoyed this! It was nice to see the justice leaguers done in a newer fashion where even Superman was done differently than the numerous other intrepretations had dipicted him.
Nice to see an animated Flash Barry Allen, I love Wally West, but the use of Barry made the Flash a little more serious in tone.
It was cool to see Wonder Woman as a physically intimidating person, & not the really sultry character potrayed in her own movie.

drawback- Once again, I wish WB would make these movies about 20-30 minutes longer.

The Justice League purists will probably dislike this movie. But I for one, rank this in my top three of all time for animated films. I crave movies that are driven by storylines, whether they are fiction or non fiction or both. This movie takes place in the 50's and touches upon real life issues such as the cold war, racism, ignorance etc. Basically, anybody whose politically right wing will probably hate this film. If you like real issues mixed in with your favourite heroes...you'll be like me and love this film. It's not for the young kids though. I really hope they make "Kingdom Come" as the next Justice League movie.
