5.0 out of 5 stars Putting the fun back into funny books, 30 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Justice League: New Frontier [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I read the graphic novel on which this is based a couple of years ago, so I'm already a big fan of the story. Great pains have been taken by the animators to retain Darwyn Cooke's unique graphical style, which must have been very costly, but well worth it. If you're a DC comics fan who can remember those wacky 60's and 70's comics with that chequered black-and-white strip across the top, you'll know what the title of this review means. The main thing I remember is that these comics were fun, and that's what comes across in this movie. There are some serious, even sombre plot lines in there which do make the story more satisfying, but the overriding feeling is one of exhuberant optimism. More power to DC for acknowledging that you don't have to go "dark" to be entertaining.

Do you happen to know if this US Blu-Ray works on a UK PS3? This doesn't seem to be out in the UK yet!
