Pretty good JL film

This isn't your typical justice league film. It depicts a world where the bad guys win and the justice league "supposedly" die. It has lots of fighting (not as bad as other ones) but overall one of the best dc animated films.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (7 ):

The first sequence, as the team works together to defeat a group of diamond thieves, is rife with forced character interactions and overwritten dialogue. With so many characters and so little time, it helps to know a bit about Superman (Tim Daly), Batman, the Flash (Michael Rosenbaum), Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg), Green Lantern, J'onn J'onzz (the Martian Manhunter), and Cyborg before going in -- but unfortunately, even then, it begins awkwardly.

But when the characters divide up into separate storylines, they're each allowed to shine -- and then the final re-grouping, and the display of teamwork, are most satisfying. Much like Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, this lean animated feature includes some exciting, suspenseful action scenes, complex themes, and even some humor; it's all amazingly economical, given the 77-minute running time. The violence may be a bit brutal for younger viewers, but teens and up should find plenty to like here.
