Trivia

While this film's events takes place after Justice League: War (2014), in the comics there is a five year gap as the events of Justice League's six issue origin story take place five years ago when superheroes were first emerging (around the same timeline as the Superman Action Comics), while the seventh issue of the series moved the timeline to the present (where most of the other New 52 series take place).

Goofs

A drunk Arthur is talking to/fighting to protect and free a red lobster in a seafood shack. There is no instance where a live lobster will have a red shell. The red shell occurs only on contact with boiling water. Thus, either the lobster was dead and Arthur hallucinating, or the artists made an enormous colouring mistake. See more »

Incredibly entertaining!
21 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, directed by Ethan Spaulding, written by Heath Corson as well as Geoff Johnson was an exciting and entertaining animated film. Though Aquaman has made many appearances in the Justice League Animated Series, this was the first time he stared in his own animated feature film that was full of Shakespearian twists.

Not too long after the events in Justice League: War, directed by Jay Oliva, Metropolis faces a new aquatic threat as the Ocean Master Orm attempts to persuade Queen Atlanna, of Atlantis, to fight the surface dwellers in an all-out war for the death of their king. Meanwhile, a young man named Author Curry, who will be later dubbed Aquaman, is thrown headfirst into the fray. After learning his true identity as a royal son of Atlantis, an Atlantian named Mera, at the request of her queen, retrieves Author so that he could fulfill his destiny as the new king of Atlantis. However, unlike Queen Atlanna's desire to use her son Author as a beacon that would bridge everlasting peace between Atlantis and the surface dwellers, Orm, also known as Author Curry's half-brother, yearns for the annihilation of the surface dwellers by using the destructive militaristic might of Atlantis. Through the aid of the Super 7, which will later be crowned the Justice League, Author Curry must accept his destiny as the future king of Atlantis and prevent a war that could destroy both worlds.

Unlike most Warner Brother DC Animated Films, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis focuses more on a monarchial power struggle which was quite refreshing as it had a classical approach. Be that as it may, there were still plenty of realistic action scenes as Author Curry and the Super 7 fight an abundance of foes. Furthermore, the animation was absolutely stunning! While some might complain about the level of graphic violence, I personally believe this level of carnage creates a convincing atmosphere which has made DC animated films more enjoyable to watch.

In the end, this animated feature film was an exceptional addition to the Justice League Animated Movie Series and will make any DC fan an enthusiast of the legendary Atlantian King, Aquaman. A definite 7.
