Justice League: Doom
The end of justice.
An adaptation of Mark Waid's "Tower of Babel" story from the JLA comic. Vandal Savage steals confidential files Batman has compiled on the members of the Justice League, and learns all their weaknesses.
Bane isn't as awesome as he was in Dark Knight Rises, but he still manages to kick some ass here.
As for the film itself, not that bad. Has some problems and could have been better, but not a bad film.
Nice animation and an interesting idea for the plot. It was too short to accomplish something really good, but Batman still rocks.
Full disclosure: I'm a huge comic book fan, and have been for decades. That being said, I'd like to think that I can separate source material from finished film and that I don't mind changes, as long as those changes stay true to the core of the source material.
DC has been doing animated TV series and movies based on their comic characters for almost 20 years now, and many of them have been outstanding. While they continue to struggle with any feature film version of their heroes that isn't a Christopher Nolan production, they've proven they can do animated heroes well. There's a lot to like about this newest animated movie, but it does have problems as well.
Although the script deviates quite heavily from Mark Waid's original "Babel" storyline, "Justice League: Doom" is undoubtedly one of the better movies from DC's recent batch of animated features. "Doom" is violent enough that you probably wouldn't want anyone under 12 to watch it, but it doesn't suffer from the forced 'edginess' of many of DC's past efforts.
The movie presents a crisply-animated, large-scale clash between the Justice League and the Legion of Doom - what more could a fanboy ask for? - but it's also peppered with enough character moments that you don't feel like you're just watching an 80 minute fight scene. As a fan of "Batman Beyond," it was nice to see Royal Flush Gang show up in animated form once again.
Not the best of DC's animated outings, but very fun. The "new" Legion of Doom has some great characters and the Bruce Wayne/ Justice League storyline was solid, but needed more depth even for an animated film.
God, I miss Dwayne McDuffie. He really knows these characters and makes this extremely clever adaptation of an old 'Justice League' comic way better than it should be... it's not perfect, but it gets four stars for Batman's laugh out loud hilarious reaction to Superman's suggestion on how to stop a doomsday device...
Further proof that Batman is the coolest superhero
I really enjoyed this one. Batman's secret contingency plans to stop the Justice League (if they should ever go rogue) are stolen and used against them by Vandal Savage, an immortal, who is trying to wipe out the Earth to start a new civilization. This feature is one of the better DC Comics/Warner animated films. Action packed and exciting throughout. Recommended.
While better than other animated films of its genre, Justice League: Doom is not satisfactory enough for its audience.
"If I had I week I couldn't list all the reasons that wouldn't work."
What else can be said about this film that hasn't been said already? It's awesome, it's fun, it's funny, go and watch it, goodbye.
An immensely enjoyable thrill ride, but also an occasionally frustrating and short adaptation.
So for those of you not up on your comic book law Batman has a database of how to nullify Justice League members should they go rogue. Now the "what if the bad guys got ahold of this database?" should be a pretty interesting plotline, but this film pretty much squanders it.
The various methods of defeating the Justice League members are resolved pretty sharpish and the bad guys easily and quickly disposed of. The whole film was pretty flat and uneventful.
But the voice cast is all the regulars, which is good.
I really liked the story. Such a clever idea But it could have been a little longer; It resolved so quickly.
So glad they had Nathan Fillion back as Green Lantern here, as I much preferred him over Chris Meloni's take. And I really dug Alexis Denisof's work as Mirror Mask. I didn't even realize it was him! The other voice acting was superb but these two stuck out from the pack to me. And Kevin Conroy as Batman - need I say more?
If they ever get around to making a live action Justice League movie, this one should be JLA 3. Not an appropriate story for the first one, and the second one you'd want something heavier. This would be perfect for the second sequel.
Really glad I watched this.
Pretty solid movie. Some nice action scenes, good voice acting (especially by the great Kevin Conroy as Batman), and somewhat of a genuine dilemma that Batman has to deal with. It's short but sweet.
