      1 Cool Fight, Many Messes

      When something’s strange in the DC Hood, who you gonna call? Obviously Batman, but Justice League Dark introduces audiences to some other DC heroes that hair from the mythic/magic side of the Justice League. The story kicks off with people experiencing massive hallucinations. They see demons. Driven to insanity, some go on killing sprees while others are willing to take their own lives to escape. This leads Batman to be contacted by a spectre who sends him to meet with John Constantine. With the help of Constantine, Batman assembles a team of experts in the supernatural …. as well as Swamp Thing. What I enjoyed about this movie was the background given on characters I’d only seen in passing in other DC properties. You’re given a glimpse into Etrigan’s pain of always being used by humans never came up in previous shows or movies. Like Cyborg in the 2017 Justice League movie, I would’ve liked to see this more flushed out. Zatana hid her powers in plain sight by mixing cheap theatrics with real magic. Even Deadman (Boston Brand) gets a backstory reveal that gives you just enough to be interested in the character. What bothered me about the origins is that it’s just enough. Not all of their origins play into the larger narrative. Sure Deadman was a trapeze artist who was killed then resurrected with a karmic debt, but his karmic debt has no roll in the larger plot at hand. This makes for poor character integration. The only characters that had any real development were Zatana and Constantine. Their romantic past fuels inter-team conflict. Batman has to step in to be the adult in this room of childish magic users. I haven’t mentioned Swamp Thing more than once  so far. This is much like the movie. Swamp Thing seems to have something against Constantine. He appears earlier in the film, but then drops off the radar. It’s not until the final showdown that we get an ex machina appearance by Swamp Thing in which he delivers on one of the better battles in the entirety of the DC Animated properties. This is a far cry better than Batman and Harley Quinn (2017), where Swamp Thing appears for less than 2 minutes of screen time and has no real purpose. Sadly, the maze of twists and turns were no surprise. I found myself wondering if the plot was actually going somewhere, or if this was a glorified episode of Scooby Doo where Old Man Jenkins would be unmasked as the villain. Point in fact, the person you think might be the villain actually is. There were no surprises or plot twists that were not painfully obvious in the beginning.   While a fan of the DC Animated Universe, I found this to be another disappointing film. What could’ve been a solid match-up of second and third tier characters, turned into a hot mess of uninspiring plot devices with one cool (but short lived) fight. Not Recommended

      Sound! What can I say about the animated DC universe with its regular releases of titles that include everything from Batman to the Justice League. I love watching these films on a 180" screen w/ full 7.1 surround as well as ButtKicker Transducers! I recently found myself being drawn in more nod more into animated stories as they finally have taken the leap from the days when the IUron Giant broke the "G" ratings barrier and we finally got PG and a story that's a hidden classic. Jump forward a decade plus and we now have an animated series that caters to adults with language and story lines that need not be designed around a child's pointer of view. I highly recommend anyone start buying these DC series as they get released! Why? Support. The more interest and the more support this Genre gets the more we get released in return. As to this particular film I loved it! Nothing like relaxing with some popcorn and enjoying some amazing work. I love the voice actors and tireless attention to detail..

      When normal people start acting violent and claim that they saw monsters, Batman starts working the case only to be haunted by Deadman long enough to realize that normal detective work and even the might of the Justice League won't be enough. For those who love Constantine, he is recruited along with Zatana and Etrigan to discover the cause for these strange hallucinations. It was good to see the mystical part of the DC realm called in as a team. Even Swamp Thing is called in to help earth though he is a little less willing since he hates Constantine. For those who loved the Constantine TV show, he is even voiced by Matt Ryan, which adds great continuity for those fans as well. Some of these DC characters haven't been seen as more than bit characters in the Justice League cartoons to this point so this is great to see their return. Like the title says, this one is a little darker than the main series of movies, but still great fun for Justice League fans.

      Plenty Of Dark. Not Enough Justice League.

      Well... here is something that sounded awesome. The Justice League vs. demons from Hades, or at least it sounded like that. The truth is that of the major members of the Justice League, only Batman has a major role. Superman and Wonder Woman are bit players with barely a minute of time for each of their roles. What this really is, is a vehicle for John Constantine, who is the main protagonist in this video, but he (at least as far as the dialogue goes) is not a member of the Justice League. I was certainly expecting more action and interplay with the Justice League and this video did not deliver. As far as the story line, there is a ton of wizardry action between Constantine and other users of magic, but there is too much of it instead of good story content. It was okay, but not worth more than the 3 stars I have rated it at. If you are going to buy this movie, wait until it is heavily discounted.

      It is not an (R) rated film...

      Though Justice League Dark has an (R) rating, it's more PG-13 (FV). For those who watch animated films and anime, the following are rated (R) or (TV-MA) films: Todd McFarlane's Spawn, Black Lagoon, Ninja Scroll and maybe Samurai Champloo (harsh language). DC animators are best in the "cartoon" category while Marvel reigns supreme on the big screen. DC wants to be gritty and edgy but needs to understand that most of their audience are underage and wishes to be entertained. Batman: The Killing Joke was also (R) rated due to suggestive scenes but was nothing more than a hyped PG-13 film. Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League (The Series) were excellent shows for television. DC needs to remember what made them popular. To parents, remember, these story writers and animators are not children. Monitor what your children watch....
