Take a peek at an all new reality in Justice League The Flashpoint Paradox
DC has been nailing it with their animated features. Their latest feature Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox not only brings everyone's favorite characters back together, it also once again brings some of the original cast as well including Kevin Conroy (Batman: Animated Series), and Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights) as well as numerous new to the cast including son of Superman: The Animated Series voice Tim Daly, Sam Daly taking on the role of Superman. Does DC have yet another hit on their hands as they bring to life one of the coolest Justice League stories in recent years?
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox follows The Flash, who creates ripples in the timeline that disastrously alters the Universe. Now he must team with other heroes to restore the timeline while the Earth is ravaged by a war between Aquaman's Atlantis and Wonder Woman's Amazons, things these are not the heroes he knows. Once again DC knocks it out of the park with their animated films. The story here may be one of the best ones to date as well as one of the most violent. They continue to push the boundaries with their PG-13 ratings and are clearly not afraid to go as far as they can. The animation is top notch with a very Anime vibe without stepping out of the visual comfort zone of their usual films. They took an awesome approach with the voice cast mixing in those that fans are familiar with along with the newcomers making the alternate reality aspect work even better. If you have never read this story before there are some really awesome twists and takes on this version of the DC Universe as well as some great cameos by familiar heroes and villains as well as some cool new ones. This film is heavy on story which is one of the reasons it works so well and finally getting a story that focuses on the Flash is a fresh change, but have no fear you will get plenty of your other favorites both old versions and new. Have no fear there is still plenty of awesome action here that is sure to keep any hardcore fan satisfied. In addition to the above mentioned voices this film also features Justin Chambers, C. Thomas Howell, Michael B. Jordan, Kevin McKidd, Dee Bradley Baker, Dana Delany, Cary Elwes, Danny Huston, and Ron Perlman.
With the exception of the Dark Knight Returns films, this might be the best animated film they have released to date. It showcases everything in both story and action you could want and then some. They may be slow on the draw to get their live action films moving, but they are winning the war in animation with each getting better and better. While we still have a way to go before getting the live action Justice League movie we have been waiting for, you can at least be happy to know that the next animated film coming up Justice League: War is sure to keep things moving in the right direction.
