Justice League Doom: Review

The Justice League is a group of superheroes with unspeakable power. What would happen if they started to use that power against humanity? That’s the exact question Batman asked himself. He prepares a contingency plan that can stop every member of the Justice League in case any or all members go rogue. The Legion of Doom (Bane, Star Sapphire, Metallo, Ma’alefa’ak, Mirror Master and Cheetah) led by Vandal Savage get a hold of those plans and one by one slowly start taking down each member of the Justice League. Once Batman realizes what’s happening, its up to him to help each hero and stop the Legion of Doom from destroying half of Earths’ population with a solar flare from the sun created by Savage himself.

DC has a great thing going with their animated feature division. Marvel excels at live action films but DC takes the cake in this department (but lets not forget about the Chris Nolan Batman franchise though). This flick isn’t one of the best I’ve seen from them but its still ten times better than any animated film Marvel has put out. The biggest plus for me is when they are able to get the voice actors from the animated TV series back for these movies. They MAKE the movie. They give life to these characters and do an excellent job at it. I couldn’t think of anyone else that could do Batman and Superman besides Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly. I can’t forget to give credit to Michael Rosenbaum and Nathan Fillion for voicing Flash and Green Lantern respectively. They both give a certain amount of “smartassery” (yes, I just made that up.) to each character and it suits them well. My only complaint about this feature is it seemed like there was not enough time and too many characters to properly tell the story in detail. Some parts felt a bit rushed but understandably so. With that being said, I would still recommend this movie and any other future DC movie to anyone else. Job well done DC!

Justice League: Doom is available February 28, 2012 on Bluray and DVD
