DVD Break: Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths - (2010) - (DVD) - (animated) - (library)
Another star-studded cast shows up in this 75 minuted animated movie with voices by the likes of William Baldwin, Mark Harmen, Gina Torres, Chris Noth and James Woods. The movie starts off with an action/battle scene and never really lets up until the end. Here we have two alternate earths where the second earth is populated with a Justice League of heroes who are the counterpoint of our Earth's villains, we meet Lex Luther the only remaining member and The Jester just before his demise. The Criminal Syndicate is taking over this alternate Earth and they are counterpoints of the JL on Earth: Superman has Ultraman, The Flash has Johnny Quick, Batman has Owl Man, Green Lamtern has Power Ring, but the most vicious villain is Wonder Woman's doppelganger Superwoman, who easily takes down anyone including Superman. DS enjoyed this one immensely; he thought it was a great superhero story and has said it his favourite of our Justice League marathon. My favourite was yesterday's The New Frontier. The animation is back to the slick, smooth modern style. This movie is rated PG-13 but compared to The New Frontier could have got away with a PG. Yes, there is violence, but only so far as cartoon violence usually goes, punch ups and beat-up evil guys. Killing is not the objective here. As to language, I only recall one "damn", again much tamer than the previous movie. Good movie, we've certainly had fun with the Justice League. Ds goes to camp next week so we'll be taking a break from movies.
