Justice League: The New Frontier Reviews

September 19, 2012
It deserved better treatment than a silly way of being handled and performed. It also seemed rushed quite a bit with few dullest bits and some violent bits as well. Although, it's a cool superhero film with a good thought-out story and good action; but it's so far the least of the DC Universe Animated Features, and of the Justice League filmography. (B)

a new take on the classic justice league. a better villain would have made this film much better.

Didn't love it, but it was an interesting take on the Justice League.
July 22, 2014
Solid adaptation of a 6-part comic book set during the late fifties, featuring Justice League members who not only must come to terms with their disenchantment of the US government's paranoid anti-communist persecutions, but must also save the world from an ancient threat that awakens to destroy it in the wake of the nuclear age. Comic book fans will love seeing retro versions of their favourite heroes (Green Lantern in particular is well presented) in a sprawling, adventure packed yarn that tantalizes with it's historical references and stylized design - although the animation, as usual with many of these straight-to-dvd Warner Bros. comic adaptations, errs on the side of minimalistic.

A well cast sort of Watchmen for the DC universe. The film has a lot of potential that is never realized due to a stupid 2nd act and forgettable villains. It seems like every dc character ever is just thrown into the fray without thought or reason for them being there.

This feature IS the comic book limited series in motion. From the color pallette to the Cold War setting, everything goes right. With the appearance of each (truly) iconic member, you eagerly await the next. For better or worse, depending on your preference, this is not a Superman-Batman-Wonder Woman centric film. Each member is spotlit and well characterized.
It will take your grandparents back to the beginning of DC's universe while taking the rest of us for a fun Earthbound adventure.
Now, if they would only follow it with a sequel that has the sidekicks involved!

A pretty good first half meanders off till all there's left is to tie up a couple of loose strings and end it quickly. Excellent source material (and vintage costumes that would make any posters worthy to frame) could have easily been made into two movies. Instead, several early scenes are too brief and towards the end the plot just seems lost. With one more hero making an entrance in the final minute - and I didn't notice any foreshadowing of him either.

A great story about what it takes to be a hero and the real world effect of DC's characters, the Martian Manhunter is the real star here and that's as great as it is surprising. The uninteresting alien threat and some silly parts in the final conflict let the side down.

finally managed to get to see this after 7 yrs and it was worth the wait. Its well voiced, and a good story. Its difficult to juggle such a large cast of characters but JL:NF does it well. The animation style works too, capturing the feel of the era its set in.

FANTASTIC MOVIE!!! SOOOOOOO AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August 13, 2008
This was ok. We have the start of the Super Power Registration Act (which they did in the Marvel universe as well). Flash and the Martian quit because of it.)

Lo mejor de la película es que Aquaman no sale más de 1 minuto.

Nice work, DC. You do have it in you.

bljah, ovo nije ni za fanove

Definitely missing Kevin Conroy as Batman, but it does have NPH as the Flash! But otherwise, it's a pretty good origin story - pretty interesting setting it in the '50s! Superman doesn't have much do do and instead it focuses on Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern & the Flash, which is a refreshing take. The enemy is a bit simple and too reminiscent of 'Independence Day', and it's a bit short at 70min, but otherwise well done!

An exciting and visionary take on the DC Universe, Justice League: New Frontier delivers a bold and unique adventure. The story follows an ancient evil known as the Centre that rises to threaten mankind; meanwhile several superheroes emerge to meet the challenge. The '50s setting adds an interesting aspect to the story, and is enhanced by the retro animation style. Additionally, an all-star cast that features David Boreanaz, Neil Patrick Harris, Lucy Lawless, and Kyra Sedgwick has been assembled. However, the film feels fragmented and the villain isn't developed very well. While there are a few flaws, Justice League: New Frontier is an ambitious feature that's quite entertaining.

Not the best DC animated movie.
June 5, 2013
Random and poorly-constructed, this early entry into the DC Animated Universe follows a sporadic origin story that culminates in a poor final boss battle. There's hardly any tension created between this team-up initially to make the characters any more enjoyable, and any time you let Green Lantern save the day, instead of Superman or Batman, you're making a big mistake.
