Review: Justice League Doom

DC animated movies are always a treat, and most importantly, the JLA always gives me a reason to laugh at Batman. On his own, Batman is seen as an idiot, and never heroic, in JLA he is always so insecure that he didn’t even joined the team for a long time just because of the fear of getting overshadowed by others still always ready to take help from JLA in his personal missions, Batman all of a sudden just becomes this asshole, a guy so stupid that it gets on peoples nerves.

The story is very simple, what if some personal enemy of the JLA finds some way to take him out? Well, Batman of course as some arrangement for that too happen, and when the villains get a hold on these documents. What follows, is a well executed attack on the JLA using Batman’s methods. Vandal Savage is a under-rated enemy for JLA since a long time. he has fought JSA and various versions of JLA and came closer to destroying earth multiple number of times and that’s why he serves the best replacement for Ra’s-Al-Gul. Also Cyborg was an idiotic choice as the 8th member of the team but that’s a different story.

The voice cast (which reunites Tim Daly, Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg and others) also increased my excitement greatly. Add in a great Legion of Doom lineup with some new character designs and the battle that takes place in the climax where each JLA member taking on their opponent is well planned. Certainly a watch-able movie.

My Rating 4 out of 5 idiotic excuses given by Batman.

    First and foremost, I dint like the storyline as compared to the comics. The way they keep making the villains less convincing is a joke. Vandal Savage hardly frightens as compared to the ultimate Dark Seid. Moreover, the part where Bane gets to Batman is not complete, the humiliation was there but it only fed batman’s alter ego more.

    Moreover, Batman is NOT so weak as they keep showing in the fights.. he is ALWAYS prepared in fights is being lost out by DC

    And as far as the villains chosen .. it was a sham, WonderWoman continues to be treated as a weak superhero. WOnderWOman is an amazon and that too with FULL blessings from GODS
    , ffs and cannot be so easily scratched by a leopard joke :X

    Personally, this movie gets only 3 out of 5 from me as generally they make great animated movies most of the time; but not this time.
