Engaging noir tale is dark and violent; some cursing, nudity.
Justice League: Gods and Monsters feels like a bright alternate universe and something that's not just a fleeting plot device.
Another solid entry in the DCU line, Justice League: Gods and Monsters works best as an entrée into what should be a fascinating and highly entertaining series of its own. [Blu-ray/DVD]
A bold reworking and one I hope we can see more of in the future, just to hear Benjamin Bratt kick ass as Superman all over again.
Fun, quick and easily separated from the rest of the universe, Gods and Monsters is worth a watch for dedicated DC fans but is unlikely to sway any newcomers.
Marks yet another outstanding Bruce Timm production and a superior entry in the DC Entertainment catalog.
It's a little too self-referential, and unless you're a walking encyclopedia of all things DC, this has the effect of becoming occasionally difficult to follow.
I didn't enjoy this at all as I found it very dull and it seemed to drag on too much, The animation was ok and there was a good action scene at the end but that's all it had going for it, It's over told plot ruined it from being any good, It's not one for the kids as it had some bad language and a few bloody scenes plus the fact that it's too story heavy for kids to really get into it, If you're not a hardcore fan you probably won't understand what's going on either, It's one of those films where if you don't know the history then it wont appeal to you at all, I did know the history and I still found it to be one of the worst DC animated films to date.
DC explores an alternative universe in Justice League: Gods and Monsters. In this re-envisioning Superman is fathered by General Zod and leads an ultra-violent super-powered trio that work with the government to takeout terrorist groups; but after they're framed for a number of murders the government turns against them. Featuring the voice talents of Benjamin Bratt, Michael C. Hall, and Tamara Taylor, the casting is pretty good. Additionally, the artwork features some interesting character designs that reflect the darker tone. And, the violence is surprisingly graphic and doesn't shy away from showing blood and carnage. Incredibly bold, Justice League: Gods and Monsters is a thrilling Elseworld adventure.
Great twist on the normal Justice League and definitely not for the younger crowds. The story was really mature and darker than anything I've seen from DC animation. I would like to see more and greater stories like The Dark Justice League
Gods and Monsters give itself the leg up of being entirely set in an alternative universe, with no crossovers to pre-established canon at any point. This means that there is no shoehorning of unsuitable plot points or character arcs, and instead leaves this smaller Justice League the opportunity to just tell a simple story. Michael C Hall as a pseudo-vampire re-imagining of Batman was an inspired choice, and the new origin stories are all fascinating twists for coded DC fans, without being too out of grasp for newcomers. It's just unfortunate that all the good decisions boil down to an excuse for "Fight another robot villain because I said so" for about the billionth time in an animated DC venture.
