Having recently read the graphic novel on which this film is based I was pleasantly surprised that the film came over much, much better. For an animation, the characterization is spot on, Batman being especially excellent, though - as with the film - one wonders at the short-list the Guardians of the Universe had to choose from when they picked the arrogant, loud-mouthed knucklehead, Hal Jordan, to be the Green Lantern of sector 2846 (if memory served me right?). Hal was always the best GL and though he went through many altered persona, as the Green Lantern of Earth, there was none better. A pity the writer of this story had to infantilize him (we already had that with the junior version of Captain Marvel - sorry, Shazam!).
Overall, this film is worth buying and enjoying, but beware the Region 1 as it only played on my laptop through VLC software (a lot of Region 1-tagged dvds do play on my Panasonic combi). One thing I can't get my head around is this insatiable desire of modern comic writers and film producers needing to re-invent the origins of our much-loved heroes (see Justice League: The New Frontier or the excellent Justice League tv show opener: Secret Origins). Hell, we know where they all came from; let's get down to an original story and save wasting half the film reminding us Superman is an alien with heat vision eyes or why Batman's on a mega-revenge kick.
Despite these comments, buy this - you won't be disappointed!

For fans of JLA, JLU and DC animated movies this is a little heart-breaking. The Nu52 reboot also included personality transplants and really destroyed the characters of the big 3. Superman's charm is gone. Always overpowered, he was also written in a way that kept him likeable. He is now overpowered, arrogant and high handed. To new fans/young fans this is probably a great movie but it is interesting that their heroes are less likeable and less layered. The quality of writing has deteriorated and the sound track is weaker. It is bigger and glossier but ultimately hollow. I have found it excruciating to watch the deconstruction that has gone on since the reboot and this movie encapsulates it.

I enjoyed this one - there's a certain familiarity about it as its yet another origin story for the Justice League but it was fun enough and funny enough to rise above this.

Based on the work of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, it shows us the modern (New 52) versions of DC's big hitters coming together to fight an alien invasion. This time around its Darkseids turn to try and conquer the Earth with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, The Flash and Shazam on the other side of the fence.

There's plenty of action here with Darkseids parademons getting sliced and diced in various novel ways by our big boys (and girl). There's a decent amount of imagination to the city wide smackdowns taking place to prevent fight fatigue and its shot through with witty scripting to bring a fair few chuckles (Bats and GL steal most of the best lines).

The animation is good as you'd expect and the voice cast is solid enough even though Nathan Fillion is not on board this time out (such is life). Jay Oliva is in the directors chair - he usually does good work (Emerald Knights, Dark Knight Returns, Flashpoint Paradox etc) and this is no different. Stick around for the end credits to get a peak at the next film in the series - Throne of Atlantis - which is a decent film in its own right but nowhere near as much fun as this one.

For the casual moviegoer, the DC Universe Original Movie "Justice League: War" is simply an uneven and ultimately wasted 79 minute running time. For longtime fans of the previously titled DC Universe Animated Original Movies, it's a heartbreaker.

Skilled action and dramatic director Jay Olivia does his best with a screenplay by Heath Corson that is solid, although dialogue and characterizations could have used a second pass. Both are undermined by this being the most miss-cast film in the DCUOM history. Even legendary Voice Director Andrea Romano can't squeeze the right emotional performances out of this cast at virtually any moment, crucially the critical ones.

Returning composer Kevin Klieisch ("Superman Unbound") delivers another 'low-budget, overtly synth sounding' score that has fans longing for the DCUOM days of the master Christopher Drake, along with past composers Kevin Manthei, Robert J. Kral, and James L. Venable. Why Frederick Wiedmann, who nailed DCUOM's previous release "Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox" with a sound that was both organic and fresh was NOT brought back to score this new film is a travesty.

The plot is a relatively straightforward, and at times improved, adaptation of Geoff Johns, Jim Lee and Scott William's first 6 issues of DC Comic's The New 52 title 'Justice League,' giving audiences a Joss Whedon 'Avengers' origin take on the classic 'Justice League' story. It's the first team-up for Superman, Batman, Wonder-Woman, the Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg.

For the film, writer Corson swaps out Aquaman for Shazam. Believe it or not, it's a wise move. Shazam is played by Oscar nominee, SAG winner, and LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy star Sean Astin.
