BluRay Review (Australia)

I purchased this film as a blind buy after receiving a JB Hi Fi gift card as an early Christmas along with many other DC animated films on BluRay. I was very impressed at both how great it was and how original it was. The story is, in an alternate universe Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are getting framed for the murder of several important scientists and are out prove their innocence before and all out war. It's set in an alternate universe where Superman's dad was actually General Zod and when he was sent to earth he was raised by Mexican's instead of Americans, Batman is actually vampire after he tried to cure himself from a disease and Wonder Woman is the widow of Darkseid's son. The film was great with really good voice acting from Benjamin Bratt, Michael C. Hall and Tamara Taylor. The story was well executed despite the ending feeling cliché and tacked on. The characters are extremely likeable and have good chemistry together, they have scenes that make you really feel for them. The BluRay is as per 99% of BluRay's a 1080p transfer and looks fantastic. It is honestly quite hard to stuff up a BluRay release of an animated film, video quality wise, but even for an animated film on BluRay it looks extremely good. It has the perfect colour balance, great contrast and deep blacks. This somehow looks even better than the BluRay of "Justice League: Throne of Atlantis". The sound is so good, it blew me away. I had my speakers up on my home theatre system and pressed play and boy was I almost blown out of my house. It's your standard 5.1 DTS-HD audiotrack but even for that it sounds almost as good as some of the 7.1 DTS-HD audiotracks that I have heard on other BluRay's before. The extras are pretty good too as they include a sneak peak into their next film, a few featurettes and a couple of movie trailers. All up I would strongly recommend this product as it is a really good DC animated film on a well presented and beautiful looking BluRay. I'd give the movie a 7.4/10.
