The Justice League are a team of great power, but also of personal secrets they thought safe. That changes when the immortal supervillain, Vandal Savage, has Batman's Batcave secretly raided to learn them all and more. Soon, the Leaguers are individually beset by their enemies who attack them with inescapable death traps specifically designed with that information. With that, all seems lost until an indomitable Knight and a young Titan combine to deliver salvation even as Savage uses the opportunity to implement a far grander scheme. Written by

In the original comic book storyline Wally West was serving as the Flash instead of Barry Allen. This was due to Barry Allen being lost in the Speed Force at the time and he did not officially return until 2008, which was 23 years after he was originally killed off. See more »
The communication with Superman when he flies to the sun is traveling faster than the speed of light.
Radio waves/electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed as light, and should thus have taken several minutes to reach Superman when he was close to the sun. See more »
Hello, Bruce. Sorry I couldn't be there for this, but I have a rather large check to pick up. Payment for dealing with you. Oh, you were concerned about where I put your parents. Don't be. They're very close. Rest in peace.

Justice League: Doom is a lot of fun, yeah, it's a little light on story, but it has several awesome moments.
I really liked the previous Justice League movie "Crisis on Two Earths", it didn't have a great story, it had a very familiar cartoony premise, heroes vs evil versions of themselves, but the action and animation was great. The voice acting was a mixed bag, James Woods was perfect as Owlman, but then you had William Baldwin as Batman, and he wasn't terrible, it just didn't feel right, Josh Keaton was good as well, I guess I'm trying to say that the replacements did a fine job, but in this movie, the original Justice League voice actors are back, okay, Tim Daly steps in for George Newbern, they are both superb, so that doesn't matter so much, and he did the voice for Superman in the Bruce Timm animated series, so he preceded Newbern and all that. The voice actors do matter and make the movie, for me, a lot more enjoyable, I could just, you know, sit back and not worry if there were any miscast actors or anything like that. Bumper Robinson is a great addition, he voices Cyborg, a character who has been pushed since the 52 relaunch, and that's excellent, I didn't like the character when he was on Teen Titans, he wasn't annoying like Beast Boy, he was just boring, here, he's pretty cool, with a lot of gadgets, weapons and tricks up his sleeve, I hope to see more of him in the future. This movie is more in the line of "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies" in that it's mostly just one brawl and action scene after another, which is fine, like in that movie, strangely the animation seems a little off, or lackluster when compared to some of the other DC Animated Universe movies. As much as I don't like "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse", the Darkseid vs. Superman and Supergirl fight was beyond awesome, the action scenes here are merely good, hey, it's always fun to watch Batman go up against Bane, gets me more hyped for TDKR.
As for the character designs, Cheetah, Bane, Star Sapphire and Mirror Master all look really cool, Metallo was a little disappointing, and didn't look very menacing. The ways the villains take out the heroes are pretty creative, though the one involving Green Lantern left me scratching my head, how could they know, for sure, that he would quit? But then they explain that later on and it makes sense, within a comic book movie context at least. The violence is not that heavy, and some moments seemed more silly than shocking, like Batman's hand bleeding like crazy, Cheetah ripping someone's throat off, Rambo-style was cool though. So, Bane knows Batman's secret identity, shouldn't that be a problem? Okay, I guess you could argue that the whole honor and Luchadore tradition or whatever prevents him from revealing the identity of a fellow man with a mask. Anyway, the movie is great fun, not the best DC Animated Movie, regardless, if you like these movies, you should get a copy so we could get more of these beyond 2012 and for many years to come.
