Just watched it last night when I rented it on PSN and liked it. I knew they were going to change the ending as they don't want animosity between main characters between animated movies. lol
Review: 'Justice League: Doom' Blu-ray/DVD
Just watched it. I thought it was pretty good. Was Bane in the original story though? I felt like he was thrown in there because of the Dark Knight Rises...
Only thing I didn't like was that, like you said, it felt a little rushed towards the end, and Superman kinda looked weird for some reason imo.
Favorite scene was Superman falling from the skyscraper as flashes of the other characters' struggles came in and out.
Its a great movie, i bought it on release. These films are so cool, its wonderful to see the comics come to life. I just wish Marvel would get back into it. I love the live action films but these animated ones seem more comic like to me.
anyways 4.5 out of 5 for me. one of the better ones.
All in all with the movie I was pretty impressed by it. The voice acting was top notch, as was expected, and except for a couple of little issues (like can you really have a LEGION of Doom with only 6 villians?) I will admit I was a little sad not to see Aquaman in this, but was impressed with how they did introduce Cyborg into the team (much better then how it's been done in Justice League).
Also loved the tribtue to Dwayne McDuffie. His contribution to comics will always be remembered.
I want to start off by sayng that Dayne McDuffie was a great writer and I think it is terrible that he is gone... However this movie is one of the biggest middle fingers to comics ever. They try to adapt a very intelligent and thoughtprovoking story and fails so miserably that I think I want to move out to the Kalahari desert to avoid it. The whole message that was in the comic gets lost and they remove what makes Batman one of the greatest superheroes of all time which is that he is human and very much likely to make mistakes and that one of those mistakes is always overestimating himself to make it seem like he was right in coming up with death traps for his friends and people who care for him because that is what morally responsible people do.
This movie ignores that and offers what is essentially a beat em up story in the vain of Mortal Kombat (very much better that Mortal Kombat of course) and ends with Batman not being human but being protrayed as being superior to everyone else and every other Superhero as inferior and that the Batgod will soon rule over the Earth like Bruce Timm always wanted him to do.
I am sorry for this rant I am just so pissed of that a comic book about characters and the whole Justice League is in the movie redused to what is essentially a batman and co. story with absolutely no depth or intelligence which I know for a fact Dwayne McDuffie did many times before and that sadly this is the movie that has been in his tribute. When I think about Dwayne McDuffie I will think much more about everthing else he did.
The two things is can praise in this movie is the voice acting and fight scenes because they are very good and make this movie watchable.
Good movie for my collection of dc animated movies. I loved Cyborg in it and how they made him pretty vital to the team. I only disliked the fact that like most other dc movies they would have like an episode from one of the tv shows that the star was in. Like All star Superman with it's Superman the animated series episodes, Batman under the red hood with it's two batman the animated series shows, and Wonder Woman with episodes of her feature in the Justice League shows. Is a good movie, but could've did like a Teen titans or Justice league episode or two for it's short length of film.
As a diehard Batman and JLA fan; I enjoyed it...... but there a few things that could had been better: it lacked the backlash that "Tower of Babel" had.....nothing against the Late great Dwayne McDuffie but maybe they could had made this part one of two; that way they could cover the emotional feeling the team felt after they found out that they were taken out by plans designed by one of their own.
Vandal Savage is ok, but Ra's or Lex would had been a better choice, I think the only reason "Bane" was in it is b/c of Dark Knight Rises coming out this year, Cyborg is a good character; but I think he was only in it because of his current status in the new line up.
