Fast paced but ultimately soulless
11 June 2012 | by marijumanjiSee all my reviews

The fast and furious action moves the plot along quite well and Keith David does a very nice job on the introduction. Ultimately the outsourced Korean animation and low production values hurt the project. They also seemed to try to pack in way too much exposition, but I suppose this was necessary especially for viewers unfamiliar with DC lore.

I enjoyed Justice League. The special features on the DVD that dealt with the history of the Justice League were particularly interesting. Compared with any number of A-list animated films this movie just doesn't stack up though. The average movie goer might find some enjoyment with Justice League: The new Frontier. There is decent writing mixed in with the usual comic book weirdness. For comic book geeks this will score a few points higher.
