|Batman, the most important part of any Justice League.|
The Justice League, consisting of Batman(Kevin Conroy), Superman(Tim Daly), Wonder Woman(Susan Eisenberg), Green Lantern(Nathan Fillion), Martian Manhunter(Carl Lumbly), the Flash(Michael Rosenbaum), and now Cyborg(Bumper Rombinson), have just encountered the Royal Flush Gang who has some strange new technology. It's revealed that Vandal Savage has some terrible things in store for the Justice Leage, as he creates the new "Legion of Doom".
This is one of the better DC animations they've put out. It's fun, action-packed, has a great story with some nice plot twists, and stellar voice acting. Can we talk about the voice casting? There's all of the original voice actors from the Justice League cartoon, including Kevin Conroy and Tim Daly reprising their roles as Batman and Superman respectively. And Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern! Let me say that again, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern. He is fantastic! Can we just reboot the Green Lantern movie with Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern? And just let Ryan Reynolds be Kyle? Please?
|NATHAN FILLION DAMNIT.|
|Martian Manhunter and others have new costumes!|
I really liked the story in this and it has a nice plot twist, though every imdb page and movie description seems to ruin it, so maybe don't look at any descriptions beforehand. That way you will enjoy the full surprise of the twist!
Even though it's a bit short, it's enjoyable throughout. it's one of DC/WarnerBrothers better straight to DVD animations with a great story, animation and voicework.
THE GOOD: Great Animation, lots of action, great story, original voice actors, Nathan Fillion.
THE BAD: short, doesn't feel like a full movie, small team.
THE VERDICT: $$$$$ Definitly pick this one up if you're a fan of DC and animated movies. It's worth owning as part of your Justice League collection.

ONE-SCENE METAPHOR: Batman and the Justice League fighting the Royal Flush gang. It's fun to see all their powers and it's nice animation, but really, shouldn't' Batman be able to take these guys down himself?
