      Wow! What A Weird Ride!

      So if you didn't realize what this movie was about from watching the trailer or reading the description, let me warn you...this is a little out there. Let's start off by explaining the "Alternate Universe" idea a little. I'll try not to spoil too much. First, Superman has different parents. Wonder Woman is actually not from this planet. And Batman, is actually as his name implies, a BATman(i.e. a vampire). Don't let the cover art fool you. Even though you see the standard depictions of the DC Trinity in the background, they have nothing to do with this movie. Now all that being said. It really was a great movie. The animation was just as good as all the previous DC cartoon movies. The writing and acting was also just as good. If you're a fan of alternate history stuff I think you'll like this. If you're like me and getting maybe a little tired of the same old story lines(seriously, if I have to see Krypton explode or Batman's parents die AGAIN, I'm going to hurl) then you will get sucked in as you watch it. Because since everything you know is wrong(as it pertains to this universe), then you have no idea what's about to happen. Which for characters that are decades older than most of us is a pleasant change. If you're still unsure about this let me also remind you about where this comes from in real life. The same writer behind this also brought us Batman: The Animated Series. Need I say more? Seriously, go look up Bruce W. Timm. You should have no more questions after that. This Combo Pack has the usual DC features: A Sneak Peek at the next DC movie(SPOILER! It's Batman: Bad Blood), a couple behind the scenes things, and a couple of Bonus Cartoons(Legion of Super Heroes "Phantoms", Superman: The Animated Series "Brave New Metropolis"). Plus, all these modern cartoons look extra sharp and really good in HD. Also, if you're like me you can let the kid use the DVD version ;) In conclusion I really liked this movie. My daughter didn't seem interested partly because she LOVES Superman and Batman and these are not what she's used to. I would have given it 5 stars, but any movie where you have to concentrate on getting out of your own head can't be perfect.

      Not for JL purists, but still most excellent

      I admit that I've always liked Marvel a lot more than DC, but I have to grant that DC has, in general, better live-action & animated TV series' and animated movies. This one is one of the best offerings in the latter category. This movie is in DC's "Elsewhen" mythos, which puts a "what if" spin on traditional DC characters. [Call it an alternate reality, if you will.] The JL "Trinity"--Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman--do NOT have the same origins, costumes, and alter-egos that we all know. Rather, Superman is NOT the son of Jor-El and is raised my migrant workers; Wonder Woman is NOT associated with Greek mythology but is an alien [from a place you'd probably know but least expect]; Batman is NOT Bruce Wayne or a billionaire, but IS a vampire. Unless you're a die-hard comic purist, what's not intriguing about this? The movie's creators, cast, and crew, pull it off with style, too. The plot is very smart, gritty, and unpredictable--you don't know who the villain really is until near the end. The animation is in the traditional, excellent Warner Brothers fashion, and the voice cast does a superb job at bringing the characters more to life. This is definitely not your parents'...or grandparents'...or even great-grandparents'...Justice League. Instead, it's a brilliant alternative with elements of realism that fit contemporary sensibilities. Bravo and thumb's up to the movie's creators, cast, and crew. Just be advised: the movie is rated PG-13 and isn't for young kids.

      Not at all what was expected fromtm cover but not

      Looking at the cover, you'd expect another DC Justice League movie in line with the previous entries, especially because the "real" versions of the three (Superman, Batman, & Wonder Woman) featured in this movies are portrayed on the cover, albeit in a suspicious silhouette form. This is definitely not the case. This movie is in an alternate dimension where Clark is not Superman, but another being from Superman's home world (I don't want to give away many spoilers), Bruce is not Batman, and Diane isn't Wonder Woman. These three are the only three that form the Justice League and run it with an iron fist. It The plot took me by surprise and I kept waiting for the "real" versions of the three to show up and set thing right. It never happened. This story starts and ends in this alternate universe, which cleverly inserts the back story of the three "heroes." Even though it wasn't what I expected, it still was a pretty good watch. Great animation and distinct characters with good character development. If you are a fan of comics, DC, Justice League, and/or animation, you should check this out. It's very enjoyable.

      You think that would be obvious with a title like "Gods and Monsters" but you still see people questioning why some properties don't just churn out kiddy stuff all the time. Bruce Timm, who gave us the amazing DC animations from Batman TAS all the way through Justice League Unlimited, is back and giving an all new spin on the main DC trinity. None are the heroes you have known, but they are, if you are acquainted with the broader DC universe, not new characters, just lesser prominent ones being given new roles. The world around them is different as well, often due to how they have filled the roles their powers have given them. Here again, more side characters find them selves in different positions, like Dr. Sivana, Will Magnus, and Amanda Waller. The story takes a very adult view of things, showing the interactions between the first three heroes and how their actions change the world we knew. Lust, jealousy, betrayal, and heartbreak are all around. The title mainly refers to the choice the new trio is given at the end of the story, one which will hopefully feel as real to you as it did to me.

      A Justice League from a new universe

      DC puts out multiple animated titles each year and 1 is usually outside the main series. This is the one for this year. In an alternate universe to the one most people know: Superman's father isn't Kal-el and he isn't found by the Kents. Raised by migrant workers his worldview is quite different from the Superman of the main world. Batman isn't Bruce Wayne and Wonder Woman isn't one you know either, but using these three main changes Bruce Timm wrote a unique new world that still looks a lot like the DC titles we're used to. Are the heroes or villains? Should humanity appreciate their interference and how hard handed should the three be against the villains in their world. Though there is a lot of thought to the philosophy of this world, there is still plenty of the action that we are used to in the Justice League titles. It was a refreshing twist to what we are all used to.

      I have always been a fan of Best Buy’s DC animated movie Exclusive packs. They are my go to packaging when it comes to choosing where to pick up the latest DC animated movie. I can always count on Best Buy to be there for my family and I, to ensure that we got the best quality for our money. Even though lately Best Buy has on a few occasions let my family and I down. By either not having their DC animated movie Exclusive packs in stock or 95% of the packages are damaged. Which is a severe disappoint to me, because I’ve been a loyal customer of the DC animated movie Exclusive packs since Best Buy started offering the DC animated movie Exclusive packs. But still when the DC animated movie Exclusive packs are available, they are a great buy. All and all this product had the potential to be great if readily available, but in the end with the lack of quality control it was al’ight.

      Pretty Good DC/JL Movie

      This was pretty good. It was a different take on the heroes that we know. the Focus is on Superman. Batman & Wonder Woman. It's like an Elseworlds tale,"In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow." It's worth checking out to see if you like it. Some might others might skip it. If you can rent and see for yourself if it's a must own for you. Personally I enjoyed the new alternative takes of the DC Trinity. I enjoyed the Wonder Woman storyline a bit more, then the Batman & Superman ones. Not that Bats & Supes Stories weren't also good too.

      Better Than Average D.C. Movie

      I'd read quite a bit about this movie before I purchased it, so I knew what some of the twists the story line had taken when compared with other D.C. Comics films. Suffice it to say that this is NOT your typical Superhero movie...but it IS excellent!! I can honestly say that I enjoyed this more than any recent D.C release. I won't spoil anything here with this review. You'll just have to catch this one and see for yourself. Aside from some minor banding, which is common to 99% of the D.C Animation releases, the picture looks just fine. The DTS 5.1 MA Audio track is surprisingly aggressive and immersive in spots and suits the movie well. If you're a D.C fan..do yourself a favor and, at least, give this a rent. I made a blind purchase strictly on reviews I'd read...and I'm glad I did.
