Just plain awful
7 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What in the world has happened to the DC quality ethic? This feature was so bad I wish there was a way to get my money back. I can't believe I paid for something this terrible. Flash is so slow that Grodd can catch him. Whoever did Batman's voice seems to have something inserted into an internal cavity, and what the heck is Robin doing with the JLA? The art was bad, the script was bad.(How is it Karate Kid can take on 3 super villains at once, see the fatal flaw in the Time Trapper and not be able to take down Robin in a fight?) Who wrote this and how did DC allow this fiasco to take place? There are thousands of fans who are much more qualified to write scripts than whatever third grader they chose. The dialog made me cringe the entire length of the feature. Heck, you could probably pick someone from random on the street and they could out write the clowns that committed this crime against comics fandom. I began to have high hopes with the Bruce Timm Justice League Unlimited series. The art was a bit sub-par, yes, but still effective, the writing,characterizations and acting by the voice talent really put that series above everything else that had ever been done. Then when Crisis on Two Earths was released, it looked like DC had reached its potential. But now this rubbish. I'm hoping the DC guys read these reviews and take action. This stuff has to go away. Here's hoping the upcoming Arkham Asylum piece vindicates DC. I'm beginning to lose patience.
