an action-packed animated adventure
on 4 June 2017
This is a really good adventure set within the DC Universe. It utilises a storyline that was to be part of the animated saga, set immediately prior to Season 3 (Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series [Blu-ray]). However, with the cancelation of that series, the story went unused. Here, it's adapted into a standalone direct-to-video film. A sequel was made - Justice League - Doom - which draws on the same characterisations and has the same voice actors. Additionally, the Young Justice: Complete First Season (2pc) / (Dts) [Bluray] [Region A] [NTSC] [US Import] is set within the same universe.
The story here involves an alternate Lex Luthor - from a different dimension - journeying to the Earth of the Justice League. He asks for help, as his world is ruled by the evil Crime Syndicate. Freedom, liberty and democracy have been supressed ... instead of doing good, those with powers have become bad in this other dimension. Luthor has designed technology to traverse the dimensions, and he wants the Justice League to stop the Crime Syndicate. Superman agrees, and take the others with him ... all except for Batman - who refuses to go. The Dark Knight explains that there's enough to do here, on their own world, without trying to sort of the crime problem on alternative Earths.
The Justice League are, for the most part, successful in battling their evil alter-egos. But one villain - Owlman - eludes capture. He's the alternative Batman. And as soon as he discovers the technology of crossing over to other dimensions, he wants it for himself. With it, he seeks to find Earth-Prime - the original dimension. And he aims to destroy that Earth, thereby shattering the multi-verse and destroying all Earths. And so Batman has to stop him ...
This is an action-packed adventure, featuring lots of superhero battles. If you are a fan of animated Justice League films then I fully recommend it. And if you enjoyed the animated series then you'll discover how Wonder Woman gets her invisible plane, and how the Watchtower acquires its transporter technology. Overall, it's a lot of fun.
