3.0 out of 5 stars Not great but still very enjoyable
Yeah, I can't say I absolutely love this movie when really, it's nothing special. But it is however very, very enjoyable and fun! The voice acting is pretty damn good, the action is great, the dialogue is ok, the music is good, and the plot is absolutely fantastic! So, not a masterpiece but oh my good the action scenes and the plot are just awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars another great DC effort,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)i gotta say, DC continues to impress with their animated offerings.i
liked everything about this latest offering.not only was the story
really good,but the voice acting was stellar in my mind.the fight
scenes were spectacular,but they didn't overpower the rest of the
movie.i also really liked the opening title sequence.i thought it
really stood out.the movie also had a dark edge to it,which i really
liked.definitely adult oriented,which suits me fine.all i can say is i
hope they keep up the quality and make sure the movies continue to have
the adult edge to them.as an aside,there's a great bonus short included
called The Spectre,which i recommend watching as well.for me,Justice
League: Crisis on Two Earths is a 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars A matter of choice,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)Another animated movie take on DC Comics Superhero characters, in this case their Superhero team the Justice League.
This film is a new take on a storyline that DC have done a few times down the years. All about a parallel DC universe. Where life as people know is startlingly different. The people are all the opposite. Heroes are Villains. And vice versa.
Thus Superman in this world is the Ruthless Ultraman. And Lex Luthor is a hero, who has been fighting a losing battle for year's against the Super Villain team the Crime Syndicate.
Lex's last desperate gambit is to cross universes, and to ask for the Justice League to help. But fighting a world where the villains are so powerful that most have lost the will to resist is no easy matter. Especially when Owlman, this world's twisted version of Batman, has his mind on other things..
The movie runs for just over seventy minutes. It has some nice and colourful animation that is very easy on the eye. The creation of characters that are similar to and yet so different to the ones that we know grabs from the off. Comic fans will have lots of fun spotting a few interesting cameos. But those who don't know their dc comics continuity will have no trouble following things.
It has lots of excellent action sequences, fight scenes in which you really feel that the heroes have a hard task on their hands. There are some subtle touches of humour. And it does ask a few interesting moral questions of the viewer about when to stand up and fight. Without ever letting this get preachy or stand in the way of the action.
It doesn't use any of the more regular voice actors from the other dc animated films. Initially people familiar with those may find it a tricky adjustment to make, to hear all the characters sounding so different. But you do quickly get used to that. James Woods in particular does turn in an excellent and subtle vocal performance as Owlman.
Parents be aware this is a 12 certificate thanks to mild action and violence and language, so it's not suitable for very young viewers. It is though an excellent new take on an old story, and well worth 4/5.
The dvd does begin with a trailer, but you can skip that via the next button on the dvd remote.
It has the following language and subtitle options:
Languages: English,Castilian Spanish, German.
Subtitles: English, Castilian Spanish, German.
In addition to, as usual with these dc dvds, having several previews of other releases, you also get
DC showcase: The Spectre. A ten minute long animated feature involving the supernatural wrath dealing character. This takes it cues from the 1970's comic Wrath of the Spectre, and sees him investigating a murder in Hollywood. A haunting look at the seamy underbelly of the place, it's also done in the style of a 1970's film with lots of great little touches to emphasise that, and is a really great watch.
There's also DCU; the new world: A 25 minute long feature interviewing a few executives and writers from the company about he direction they were trying to take their comics in - as of the time it was made. It is now somewhat out of date, but it's an interesting look at how comic companies work and absorbing viewing.
There's also two episodes of the cartoon show Justice League. Both are twenty two minutes long, and are parts one and two of a story called A Better World. Which is available on other dvd's, but is included here because it's another take on the Crime Syndicate. And it's very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent title from DC, even better than Public Enemies which was a very good movie,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths [Blu-ray] [US Import] (Blu-ray)This film shows the beginnings of the Justice League, such as building their "watch tower" and forming the team ethos that makes the Justice League a severely different superhero group to a certain Avengers.
This involves excellent animation cinematics, great voice work, james woods as Owlman was such a nice touch, and the others make for interesting voice partnerships.
A great watch with good fight scenes and story telling.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class Justice,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)Solid story, good ensemble cast to enforce the theme of ying & yang and parallel lives. Batman steals the show as ever and ends up saving the day.
Strong recommendation for those that love Justice League
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice animated take on a comics classic.,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)Thoroughly enjoyed this. I read the comics it was based on when they first came out and, while this is in no way a strict retelling of that story, for a start there's no Justice Society, always one of my favourite groups, it still works very nicely as it is. I particularly liked the characters of the various Crime Syndicate members and the way Johnny Quick was used, was excellent.
My only complaint with DC animation is a generic one: why do I have to wait so long for them to come out on Region 2. I've known about this for a long time, but have only now been able to enjoy it. Come on DC, simultaneous publishing please, what will you lose by it?
4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ever DC animated movies,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)This animated movie showcases DC's universe very well. Not only do we see the Justice League in action, but they are pitted against their direct opposites (which always is fun to see in comics). The plus points of the movie were the voice acting, story and overall slick animation. Negatives - very few, only wish they had Kevin Conroy in for Batman. Highly recommended to kids and adults alike.
2.0 out of 5 stars not bad but the voice acting ruins it,
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)A pretty good film but the voice acting ruined it for me. James woods isn't bad but thats about it. I can't remember which Bladwin does the voice for batman but he was a bad bad choice.
5.0 out of 5 stars amazon,
