When Hal and Ace are speeding on a highway just outside of Las Vegas, they pass a warning sign for the Nevada Test Site, stating that it is off limits by order of the United States Department of Energy. But the US Department of Energy (DOE) didn't exist in the 1950s; its predecessor then was the US Atomic Energy Commission.

Like all things on this hurtling sphere, I emerged from the molten center of creation. But mine has been a unique path. Isolated, I developed attributes beyond those of lesser beings. Then the sphere was struck by a vast celestial stone. Black chunks of death filled the skies and the world became a chaotic world of doom. Soon the sphere began to nurture new kinds of life.

Again I must mention having watched Batman: Under The Red Hood and Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, Batman Vs. Dracula, The Batman Superman Movie: World's Finest, Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm and also Green Latern: First Flight, this one here falls into the just-about-watchable (or bearable) category.
Out of all the above: Batman Under The Red Hood is still the best one I have seen. Then comes the Green Lantern: First Flight. The next in line is Batman/Superman: Public Enemies. That's it.
If you haven't seen the above movies that I mentioned, watch them first before you accept my criticism of this film.
A boring opening picks up slowly, gathers some momentum and keeps up the pace till the end. But this film is still not good enough.
And also talk about running out of ideas. The creature called "The Center" is just ripped of the movie Independence Day. I mean you don't need a brain cell to figure that one out do you? I think even the cartoon industry is on the decline in Hollywood!!! Also I think the film does not do justice to the animated TV series as well.
Bottom line: if you show this one to your kids and they demand a refund, or switch of the TV set and for once start doing their homework, you know you've made a wrong choice.
Score 5/10= passing mark.
Have a nice day. :)
