Assembled by Vandal Savage, the elite members of the Legion of Doom—Bane, Cheetah, Mirror Master, Star Sapphire, Ma’alefa’ak and Metallo—are shown how to beat each and every member of the Justice League of America. Using the specific weaknesses of each hero, the Legion heads out to destroy their counterparts and bring them to their knees so Vandal Savage could implement the next phase of his plan: annihilating the majority of the human race so he can bring about a new world order from its ashes.
To make things worse, Vandal Savage didn’t discover how to destroy the Justice League on his own, and when the answer as to who was responsible is revealed, the JLA is rocked to its core with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.
Man, I love this movie. It features an all-star cast of all-star superheroes going up against an all-star roster of evil supervillains. Finally, we get to see the villains stick it to the heroes in a big way and not let up until the JLA is down. And I mean really down. It’s not often you see Superman on the brink of death, Batman humiliated and defeated, Flash completely screwed, Green Lantern a broken man, Martian Manhunter totally incapacitated, and Wonder Woman so messed up she doesn’t know what to do or which way to turn.
This flick is based on the “Tower of Babel” Justice League story arc by Mark Waid, who is arguably one of the best comic book writers on the planet. I can’t comment on this flick’s faithfulness to that storyline because it’s been over ten years since I last read it, but I do remember the overall premise and this movie delivered on that.
The heroes and villains look great in this movie, and it does well in showcasing their various powers and abilities.Read more ›
Maybe Bruce Timm set the bar too high with Batman: Animated Series, Justice League, and its follow up series, Justice League Unlimited. Because a great deal of what he's done since then doesn't even comes close to that standard. This piece, for example.
On a purely sensual level, the work is as good as it ever was. The art, the music, the production values: they're all still there. If anything, the artwork's grown still more lavish. We even get to see the old cast of voice actors re-united.
But on any kind of deeper level, we're a long, long way from Timm's heyday. The characters are one dimensional, there's no emotional or moral depth whatsoever, and... Just...
There are some supervillains who attempt to pull off a diabolical master plan. A diabolical master plan with a twist. If that's enough for you, then yeah, sure. Why not.
Otherwise, I'd have to say we've reached the point where the stuff Timm's putting out really is just for kids. It pains me to say that, more than you can know. But this isn't a film I could honestly recommend to adults.
The English audio is a true DTS-HD 5.1 track that will rattle your windows. There's also a good Dolby Digital 5.1 French and Spanish 2.0 audio tracks as well. Extras include a touching 30 min. tribute to the late Dwayne McDuffie who pioneered the inclusion of multi-ethnic superheroes in the DC universe and created the Justice League TV series; a 20 min. commentary on the relationship between Batman and the J.L. (who watches the watchers); a 6 min. documentary on Cyborg and his origins and two of the better episodes from the Justice League series. ALL of these extras are also in HD with HD audio! Very impressive!
The DVD is more spartan as it is one of those rare DC dvd/digital copy combo discs. All it contains is the movie and a handful of trailers. However it does have extra audio tracks including English, French & Spanish DD 5.1 and Portuguese & Thai Stereo Pro-logic.
Overall I'd rate this as one of the better DC movies. Four stars out of five!

Okay, it's going to take a lot to top 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns' as my all-time favorite DC Animated movie. But wow, this was great! O.k. Read morePublished on May 21 2014 by Raptor
