Brief Synopsis – The newly formed Justice League must try and find a way to stop the heir of Atlantis from destroying Metropolis as revenge for an attack on their city.
My Take on it – I have always been a fan of the DC superheroes and really enjoyed reading all of the Justice League comics from the 80’s and 90’s.
I wasn’t sure of what I would think about the recent reboot of the storylines which have taken place in both the comics and the DC/WB animated universe.
After seeing this film, I can now affirm that I’m really beginning to enjoy the way these charactrrs have evolved in this reboot.
They have such a positive energy here and they have managed to make things a bit darker yet more realistic seeming at the same time.
The updated costumes and personalities of the heroes make things even more interesting because it all works extremely well while also making some normally unlikeable characters more likeable here.
As always, the voice cast is superbly chosen and I love hearing Sean Astin’s voice as the extremely loveable Shazam!
Bottom Line – I’m really liking the new Justice League reboot series because it gives so much new energy to the team of superheroes. The changes made with the costumes and personalities work really well and make some of the characters even more likeable than they would be otherwise. Great voice cast as always and I really love hearing Astin as Shazam! 😉 Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – While this film’s events takes place after Justice League: War (2014), in the comics there is a five year gap as the events of Justice League’s six issue origin story take place five years ago when superheroes were first emerging (around the same timeline as the Superman Action Comics), while the seventh issue of the series moved the timeline to the present (where most of the other New 52 series take place).
