Justice League: Doom
Why I Saw It: Almost all of the DC Universe animated features have been really enjoyable; not necessarily great films, but enjoyable. The concept behind the storyline intrigued me, too.
What Was It About? Someone has found the weaknesses of each member of the Justice League, and they’re seeking to nullify them one at a time.
Rating: 7.7 out of 10
Memorable Performances: This was an animated feature, so I’m not sure exactly how this applies. I do like the voice work of Kevin Conroy, as always, and having Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern was a great choice.
Potential Nominations for Film Quest ’12:
Favorite Parts: I thought the very ending with the discussion between Superman and Batman was a strong scene.
The Regrettable Aspects: The first part of the movie, where the Justice League were fighting the group named after playing cards, could’ve been explained better and perhaps had a less convoluted storyline. The Wonder Woman battle with Cheetah was a bit tiresome. Green Lantern’s diversion could’ve been established a bit better to help us understand his motivations.
Would I watch it again? Absolutely, as soon as my son is old enough.
To Whom Would I Recommend It? Anyone who likes the Justice League or superheroes in general.
Next up, King Of California.
