Not another job well done
28 October 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Robot Chicken: DC Comics Special" is a 23-minute television short film that was used as an appetizer for season 6 of "Robot Chicken" 3 years ago. There is obviously some Star Wars stuff, but here director Seth Green takes a journey into the world of superheroes. Apart from his usual voice cast, he gets help from Neil Patrick Harris, Megan Fox, Alfred Molina and Aaron Paul in this Emmy nominated special. The humor is basically the same as usual for "Robot Chicken" and from my perspective that means bad. There are really not that many funny scenes in here and the animation isn't my cup of tea either. sad to see they decided to make 2 more specials, maybe more to come, with this first one already being a failure. Sorry, but humor along the lines of Two-Face taking releasing a turd in the bathroom is simply not enough these days. Not recommended, even if I admit it was nice to see all these superheroes and supervillains united in one movie.
