JL War Spoilers:
So yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah, what the hell did I just watch? This movie was down right terrible and reflects EVERYTHING wrong with the New 52. First off, the animation is subpar, but my god, the lip synching was terrible. The lips rarely ever seemed to match up with the dialog. Secondly, the voices were quite bad, especially on Darkseid, Batman, and Hal. Yes, they did a lot better job of hiding Blum's voice than the trailers made it sound, but he just sounded robotic rather than godly. Batman and Hal were off on all accounts. Another issue is I just don't understand the need to put Captain Marvel in here. Not only did he feel out of place, but I just don't get it. He says the word "Shazam" to transform, and then says "Shazam' later and stays as is, then does it again and it transforms him. It just does not make sense at all. Not to mention what the hell happened to Billy. Gone is the sweet kind hearted always positive child and he is now a little sack of **** you just want to whack with a belt. How is this kid deserving of Shazam's power? In fact, that is the other problem here and with the N52. Except for Flash, every character in this movie was broody and ready to insult one another. There was not a single different character trait among them to make them not seem like the same character several times over. Speaking of Flash, how come he is in his non-N52 costume? That makes no freaking sense either!!! Superman killing Zod in "Man of Steel" made sense. His killing Desaad here does NOT!! However, the worst atrocity was Darkseid, or rather, I swear that Doomsday took Darkseid's Olympic clothing because this character did not even feel like Darkseid. He just felt like an unstoppable killing machine. There was no purpose to his invasion because this movie had no plot. It is like the writers just took the action scenes out of the comic and instead of turning it into DLC for "Injustice Gods Among Us," they made it into a movie.
On the positive side, the constant banter between Hal and Batman remained the best part of the movie as it did in the comic. Flash was golden. They did a good job of Cyborg. Other than that, there is nothing I can really praise this movie for. This is one of the worst, if not the worst, DC animated movie WB has ever done. It was insulting the audience, and as I previously said, it highlights everything that is wrong with the current state of the comics. Oh yeah, and Superman and Wonder Woman is just no no NO!!! NO!!!!!
Overall, I give this piece of garbage a 4/10 and that is only because the action scenes were sort of cool and there were good one liners in it (such as Batman stealing Hal's ring and his first words to Flash).
