Fast cars, intense races, amazing crashes, all of the above has been delivered on screen before in films like The Fast and the Furious, but can the new kid on the block Need For Speed deliver the same thing keeping up pace?
Videogame adaptions haven't had a particulary good track record on Hollywood, ranging from subpar adaptions like Resident Evil, Doom and such that try to cash in on the fact that they're based on a videogame rather than actually…
DC is usually pretty spot-on with their animated material, however Justice League: War suffers from a few issues that bring down the film in its entirety.
The plot itself is based on the comic book Justice League: Origin, which is part of DC's New 52 reboot of the DC universe. The plot is simple enough, evil villain wants to take over Earth and enslave/repurpose its inhabitants, but unfortunately due to the overly simple storytelling there's not much more to it…
I was going in expecting a decent nonsensical action film, and it delivered, well except the decent part.
From illogical plot points to questionable decisions by the characters the film never manages to get any traction.
I was never expecting an intelligent film, but the quality of this film unfortunately surprised me in a bad way, which is disappointing since the trailers turned out to be more fun than the feature film itself.
