      Really Fun Movie Despite...

      Look, I grew up in the 80s and 90s so to me Batman IS Kevin Conroy and Superman IS Tim Daly. In previous DC animated films when those 2 actors were not providing the voices it was just a little off-putting. Not that those movies were bad, but it was distracting at points. However, this one? Great. Even though these aren't the guys I would have chosen, I didn't find myself groaning and longing for better days lol(which is good cause it looks like these are the guys from this point on). The dialogue between the characters is spot on. Every character acts and sounds how you would expect. Batman is serious and precise. Green Lantern is brash and arrogant. Superman is altruistic and a little cocky. Wonder Woman acts like she just got off the island but is strong and confident. Flash is mouthy and quick to action. Then you get Cyborg and Shazam. Again, my Justice League of old didn't look like this. But they work. This is a bit of a Cyborg origin story(maybe about 15 minutes broken up here and there). Where everyone else shows up doing what they do, Vic is suddenly thrown into this and is still trying to work out who he is now. Shazam is about what you would expect, an immature show off. Last but not least, there's Darksied. I think this is where the story really shines. He's finally the big imposing unstoppable force that you should fear. It's hard to create a story line where it takes everything the Justice League has to come out on top. With near god like people(Wonder Woman even describes them as the Greek Gods: Hades, Apollo, Hermes, Hephaestus, Zeus) it's always been a hard sell that some of these guys that can pretty much do whatever they want can't beat some of the clowns they go up against(not a Joker pun). But when a being the size of a building comes to destroy your planet, it's gonna take some team work. So, even though it doesn't look or sound like the Justice League I grew up with, it's still a fun movie and I find myself wanting to watch it again and again. This story is based on the New 52 Justice League Origin. If you've been away from DC for a while or was never much of a fan(I've always been a Marvel guy) this will bring you back in. I'm not saying you'll jump in with both feet, lol. But you'll look at DC with a new perspective and may make you check out some of the New 52 comics next time you go to your local shop. This ain't your dad's Justice League...and that's a good thing ;)

      I generally love DC animated films

      The animation used in late on these is not good. The voice work is god awful. I'm not sure where they're going with this. Flashpoint is far superior to this film. All around the voices seem wrong. The characterizations fall short. I'm not a fan of the NEW 52. Replacing Aquaman with Shazam is uncalled for. Too much time spent on a new origin story for Cyborg. Cyborg is a lame character and an ill fated attempt to give DC an African American character. Worse in this whole fiasco is a Green Lantern who acts more like Flash from the Justic League / JL Unlimited series. But by far the worse performance, voice acting, look ,and characterization is Wonder Woman. The actress's voice doesn't cut it. The sleek look of her outfit is lame and boring. I have never care much for Darkseid in general, but this version of Stan Kirby's characters is horribly drawn. It's almost as if they're admitting inferiority to Marvels' Avengers. For me DC has the best characters who've had the worse film adaptations while Marvel has had great films for their inferior characters. It's merely my opinion. I like seeing DC explore characters other than BATMAN, but it seems that when they do they're often uninspired. Green Arrow, Flash, Nightwing, Joker, Robin , or Aquaman would all have been better choices. A more attractive Wonder Woman, as in the first film they did of her is a better choice than this version. I'm sorry to report that I'm not happy with this film. I found it uninspired, and in many hard to watch in general.

      New 52 = Complete Desecration of DC Characters

      Posted
      RPerez

      Much like what is being displayed with the new 52 comic line, Justice League War provides a wealth of edgy, dark 2 dimensional characters that attempt to drown the viewer with over compensated action in hopes of forgetting 70 years of character development. Green Lantern is irritating and D'Bag. Shazam neither conveys the wisdom of Solomon nor does he display any power of Zeus. Wonder Woman is witless barbarian, and Superman is simply not Superman. BatMan and Flash are surprisingly in character and Cyborg's take is interesting but not enough to save this animated film. If you're used to the Bruce Timm's level of quality of action, story and character integrity do not bother wasting your time with this one. If' you're new to the genre and latched on to the new 52 character models than you'll be more than thrilled with this pale and hollow rendition of the Justice League.

      By all accounts this should be good a great writer and artist collaborating on DC's flagship title of the new 52 but overall its a stale uninspired mess, a retelling of the justice leagues origin story where all the characters feel like caricatures of themselves. And don't get me started on the movie it takes already stale material and make it somehow even less entertaining, with small tweaks to dialog and a weird sl*t shaming theme added to wonder woman's story, that wasn't present in the book not to mention Shazam... they switch out Aquaman for Shazam in the movie, and I know Aquaman's not that popular but Shazam horn dogging over Wonder Woman woooof. I mean at least Aquaman had sharks, there was one thing tho there is a scene with the Green Lantern gloating before getting back handed to the floor, where these two aliens jump in and pummel him into the ground then jump out as quick as they arrived that unintentionally made me laugh out loud.

      A great film to add to the DC Comics collection

      I have a few DC Comic animated films collected and this is just another great film to add to my collection. I've never seen the Justice League films or shows, I've always been into either Batman, the Flash, and my favorite superhero of all time, Superman. Watching this interpretation of how they all met, Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonderwoman, Cyborg, for the first time was really interesting, and quite enjoyed it. FYI: I never knew Superman to be so conceited. This film not only tell the story of these characters joining forces to save planet earth, it also focuses on the story of a particular character that always eluded me and never quite spent time getting to know, Cyborg. Though Cyborg's storyline took up a portion of the film, I felt like it wasn't enough. They really left me wanting to know more of his origins. Overall, this is a great buy if you're a fan of these DC characters

      Fun to watch once, but not the best.

      I'm a fan of all the recent DC Comics animated films that have been made over the last ten years or so, but this film, for me, didn't match up to their previous standards. I've felt the same about the last few titles that have come out. The story is very formulated. There is nothing new or original about the stories, characters, writing, or sequences. "War" in particular was lacking in story elements, choosing unexciting fight sequences over clever story telling, and rushing to an ending that left me wanting more. If you're a kid, or have kids, I'm sure this is great fun. For the grownup, I guess I'll have to enjoy the Marvel real life action films until DC can come out with something for my generation.

      Not your usual super hero animated feature

      As a Justice League fan I was eager to see another story involving the team. Some of the more recent animated features have had a more violent nature so I wasn't surprised to read that this movie fell into that same trend. The fighting is more intense and so are the results of the battles. With that said fans of the characters will enjoy the difference in tone and attitude if for no other reason as they are different than the norm. I would however recommend screening the move before sharing it with young children as the intensity of the fighting might jade them on the "friendly" super heroes they've come to know through the TV/Movie roles.

      justice league war is one of the top dc universe animations to date. an action packed adventure with crisp animation and great pacing makes one entertaining story. this is the first time the justice league comes together in dc's 'new 52' revamped universe and what better way than facing the hoardes of darkseid! unfortunately, as with most books translated into films, the storyline is altered somewhat and aquaman is left off the roster. however the movie makes up for such alterations with the addition of shazam and a teaser after the credits which sets up a very exciting sequel . highly recommended!
