Justice League: The New Frontier Reviews
Adapting the award-winning DC Comics miniseries DC: THE NEW FRONTIER by Darwyn Cooke, Justice League: The New Frontier spins a tale of the DC Universe in the 1950s, focusing on test pilot Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) and the Martian Manhunter. The story also features other DC characters, including Barry Allen (the Flash), Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and many more.
Its the New "Justice League" in the 1950's!
Its fun watching most of the popular "Super Heroes" in one flick but what I enjoyed most was the story telling. This version was awesome! Its darker and more sinister. I also got a glimpse of some of the other "Justice League" members who were gradually taken out of the group during the comics.
The animation is fantastic and from the credits I noticed a lot of Asian names, most likely Japanese and Korean I believe who mostly dealt with the art and animation department.
I hope they do more like/of this!
This one stayed closer to the source material than the other one and was a really good companion piece to the book.
It did have to sacrifice some of the story so that it could fit in the 70 minute time frame but it doesn't weaken the overall plot and feel of the flick.
The animation style is good and is pretty close to the original source material. i liked all the character designs and liked the retro feel to the whole movie.
The voices for this flick are excellent and varied. The casting was well done and it's fun.
All in all I really liked this flick and i hope they keep up the momentum and try and steer clear of the train wreck that was the first.
It's nice to see they didn't spend all the time with Superman having him catch bigger and bigger items like always seems to happen...
There's a balance among the superheroes appearances, though it mostly focuses on the Green Lantern, a hero I know next to nothing about.
Overall, great story, great characters, and one very cool reveal right near the end, if you ask me.
Jeremy Sisto's Batman voice is definitely the coolest!
