3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but could have been better
Enjoyed watching this with my son. However the amount of mistakes that the Justice League made during the film made them appear a bit dumb. Also bought The red hood batman movie and the batman in that is a lot cleverer.

4.0 out of 5 stars another great DC effort, 4 Mar. 2010
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome DCU film., 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a reason I like DC universe films and this is one of them!!

I know the storyline well (even loving the reboot for the DC new 52) and it lives up to it.

The different versions of each characters are great, evil green arrow, black canary, Lobo. Plus the Crime Syndicate are well and truly badass, especially the smartest and dangerous of them all who finds a way of wiping out humanity, OWLMAN!

This is definitely one you have to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars great story, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)
I was very excited to receive this film, and i was not let down in any way after watching it.
All of the main characters were portrayed in a way faithful to the comics, and what a treat it was to see Jon J'onzz on screen alongside Batman, the Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman.
The alternative earth characters were mainly reliant on the audience knowing the charactor that they were meant to be the opposite of, with only Owlman really being given motivation and rounded characteristics.
I found it gripping, with hundreds of little easter eggs for those who know the DCU inside out (a personal favourite being the brief appearance of 'Red Arrow' or 'the Jester' appearing at the beginning. As well as how Wonder Woman came into possession of an invisible Jet.) But the narrative was simple enough for anyone coming new to the material to understand, and whilst it was in no way an Adult story the delivery was grown up enough to look at serious issues and the darker side of charactors, with the climax to the film being very tense whilst at the same time being a piercing look into the psyche of one hero.
I would recommend this heartily to all fans of DC comics, or even those that just want a decent thriller that rewards rewatching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crisis on two earths (Justice League), 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths [DVD] (DVD)
Modern retelling of a great DC classic, i enjoyed it (having the original book), the grandchildren enjoyed it, having seen the latest Justice League animations, only one minor quibble, a little violent for very young children and i would suggest that parent/adult supervision required and a decision as to whether the child is mature enough for the animation, "Superfriends it ain't".

5.0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Two-for-One Ticket!, 20 Feb. 2015
The superhero known as Lex Luthor travels from a parallel Earth to ours and summons the help of the Justice League to take on the Crime Syndicate, an evil version of the JLA from his own Earth. Agreeing to help him, the Justice League travels to Luthor’s Earth and takes on the Crime Syndicate, pitting the likes of Superman against Ultraman, Wonder Woman against Superwoman, the Flash against Johnny Quick, Green Lantern against Power Ring, Martian Manhunter against J’edd J’arkus, Hawkgirl against Angelique, and, soon enough, Batman against Owlman.

In a true case of looking in a mirror darkly, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is a super heroic and super villained thrill ride that gives you two Justice Leagues for the price of one!

Such a simple premise but such a cool story. Why not have the JLA face themselves from an alternate reality? Who would win? If you’re fighting someone every bit as powerful as you are, would someone come out on top? What if they thought like you? Talk about playing with one’s shadow.

There’s superpowers galore in this movie as each hero gets to take on their counterpart and show what they are fully capable of. More so, you get to see what our beloved JLA would be like had they taken other paths in life as the similarities and differences between them and the Crime Syndicate are explored.

A bunch of other heroes make an appearance in this flick as well, guys like Aquaman, Black Canary, Red Tornado (a personal favorite), Firestorm (another favorite), and more. Kind of a throwback to Justice League Unlimited in that way.

Don’t be fooled, though, as this movie is more than just a superhero/supervillain slugfest. It gets into the deeper issues, the big one being about choice. In the context of the movie, if every choice we make spawns an alternate reality where the alternate choice(s) was also made, do any of the choices we make ultimately matter?

This movie is smart, interesting, and grabs you from the get-go. The action is top notch, the animation is ultra sweet, and if these direct-to-video DC Universe movies have proven anything, it’s that they know how to make a good Justice League flick. I can’t wait until they transfer that same know-how to a live action Justice League movie. Can you imagine how awesome that’ll be?

Anyway, back to this one. This is such a good movie and is a must-have on any superhero fan’s movie shelf. You not only get DC Universe’s all-stars, but the all-stars of a parallel universe as well. Like I said above, definitely a two-for-one ticket and definitely worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A matter of choice, 7 July 2013
By 
Paul Tapner (poole dorset england) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
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.

Extras:

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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent title from DC, even better than Public Enemies which was a very good movie, 26 May 2010
By 
M. I. Day "dayo1986" (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
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.

This a really good feature. It has a great story that is enjoyed by young and old alike. If you are a die hard DC fan then this is for you. If you like a good superhero story then this is for you too.
