“Justice League: War” is an animated superhero film. It serves as the first instalment (following the “Flashpoint Paradox”) in a series of movies with a shared continuity, based upon the ‘New 52’ saga by DC Comics, and depicts the origin of the Justice League. The super-heroes featured include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg and Shazam – as they form a team so as to prevent the conquest of Earth by the villainous Darkseid. This is a very good movie, providing a fun and entertaining adventure in which the heroes to join forces – and yet, at the same time, it’s a dark and serious tale, touching upon some of the difficulties and tensions resulting from these heroes working together.

The story concerns the disappearance of several people from various cities. Just as the latest victim is about to be abducted, Green Lantern arrives – and confronts the mysterious attacker, who is revealed to be a Parademon. The creature overpowers Green Lantern, but fortunately at that moment Batman arrives. The Parademon escapes, only to explode when it uses an alien Mother Box device (which opens portals between worlds). Realising that extra-terrestrials are involved, Green Lantern and Batman seek out Superman for answers (believing that he is working alongside the aliens). Once they realise that Superman isn’t colluding with the enemy, the three heroes decide to work together. Meanwhile, elsewhere the Flash has discovered another Mother Box – and has delivered it to STAR labs, where it is being studied by Dr. Silas Stone.

Dr Stone’s son – Victor – is at the labs, when the device activates … the young man is fatally injured, yet the Mother Box fuses with him, transforming him into Cyborg.

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!

I loved this movie. Obviously it is based on the first 6 issues of Justice League new 52 comic. Warning this might contain minor spoilers. This is Justice League as an action movie. The name says it all. WAR!!!! The animation is great in the same style of The Flashpoint Paradox. Pretty much if you like that DVD you will like this one, if like me you loved that DVD you will love this one, and if you did not like that DVD (which means you are probably not a comic book fan) you will not like this one.

The edge this has over the comic version is that in the comic is even though the art work was great in the comics for me it felt like too much of the story has moved on in between panels. An example is in the comic I did not understand why Batman suddenly decided to take his cowl off in the middle of a fight to give Green Lantern a pep talk, whereas in the movie you understand bits like this a lot better.

The characters. In this 52 post flashpoint era's origin of the Justice League. These heroes are meeting each other for the first time. Batman is well Batman, the coolest smartest guy in the room always 10 steps ahead of everyone else and prepared for anything. Green Lantern is young with a huge chip on his shoulder he seems take the Flash's place as the team’s youngster. The Flash acts more like a veteran hero then the young jester that part is taken. Wonder Women is and emissary from Themyscira to the US. Her costume is in the new colour scheme, but the pants have been replaced by the more popular shorts. During battle scenes she is excellent (in which she prefers the sword to the lasso), the main problem with her is her dialogue she speaks like a 10 year old. Shazam is done well I think he does sound like a kid in an adult body like he is supposed to be.

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.
