This is a direct-to-video animated movie based on the 2011 Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. There is also a follow-up film, focusing only on Batman, Son of Batman which is already available.
This movie brings many of the DC Comics Characters together – some having no interaction with each other and only know rumors. This is the beginning of the Justice League history.
What I loved:
- Showing how the characters interacted when meeting for the first time
- Some of the dialogue was witty and I laughed aloud a few times
- How the world viewed the heroes and the beginning of the Justice League
- Wonder Woman using a sword.
- The origin of Cyborg
- A little hostility between two of the superheroes, that I think was well-done. Get a group of people together, even superheroes, and there’s bound to be some ego clashes.
What I didn’t like:
- Wonder Woman flying (without her jet). None of the original comics, to my knowledge, cartoons/TV shows/etc. that have her, show her flying. That is why she has a jet – in order to fly. Which is the same thing Batman says in this movie about why he does have a plane.
- Title. I think the original title of Justice League: Origin fits the movie better than War.
My rating 4.3/5 stars.
If you like comics, DC Characters, Justice League, etc, this movie is worth checking out.
Justice League: Throne of Atlantis – the sequel to Justice League: War is scheduled to release sometime this year.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
