Is It Any Good?
Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part One catapults the DC universe into a cosmic showdown, delivering an Avengers-style superhero spectacle. The storyline, inspired by a classic comic arc, throws our heroes into a multiverse mess with evil doppelgangers and a cosmic disaster in the mix. It's like a superhero rollercoaster, with a few quirks along the way. The constant jumping between alternate Earths can make it feel like a time-traveling treadmill at first, and the action scenes might trigger a bit of déjà vu from other superhero tales. But as the story unfolds, it starts making more sense, and the audience will find themselves rooting for the heroes to save the day.
Though it's called a Justice League movie, it mostly follows The Flash. The animation is top-notch, the voice acting's on point, and it lays the groundwork for what could be an exciting trilogy. Whether you're a long-time fan of the DC heroes, or new to the franchise, you'll be able to jump right in and enjoy the movie for what it is, an action-packed adventure with some heart.
