Critic Reviews for Justice League: The New Frontier

All Critics (4)

  • The central problem with "Justice League: The New Frontier" is that Bruce Timm's clear, square-jawed animation style doesn't match the tone... Director Bullock, rather than using his film's style as a necessary distancing tool, merely revels in it.

  • a joy for an old-school comic book fan, and hopefully a view of some awesome things to come.

  • Much more of a sophisticated outing this time around, and while it may go over the heads of younger audiences, there's a lot to be gained for older folks looking for more than one-liners and knockdown drag out tussles between titans...

  • The first 45 minutes is fantastic. Pity about the rest . . .

    Even though it had allot of down or confusing times it's still pretty enjoyable in places, The plot was so over told it dragged, I did like the year it was set in as it felt pretty fresh but they didn't explain The centre villain very well and things just dragged along until the epic conclusion, It's not the worst DC animated film but it's far from the best too.

    How the JLA came together in a nutshell. A small nutshell. While it's good that the focus goes broader than simply Batman and Superman for a change the justice done the other frontrunners in the DC universe is not really justice. The work has a curious retro look going for it that's not offputting and the actors (quite a few names!) and music do well. If only it had been better written.

    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.

    I really was expecting to watch a Justice League kiddie cartoon but this was most definitely not a kiddie cartoon.I also expected to watch it just to be watching but it blew my mind how awesome Justice League: The New Frontier turned out to be.The story was great.It had way more then enough to keep me interested from beginning to end & I especially loved the old school vibe.This is an animated movie I'd recommend watching
