Above average telling of a classic JLA story

Summary: Cote, although ably written by the great Dwayne McDuffie, inevitably pales by comparison with "A Better World" a two part episode of JL series and one of the finest moments in superhero broadcast. Cote actually goes back to the roots of "A Better World", a 1960s comic-book classic called "Crisis on Earth Three" although Owlman's desire to destroy the multi-verse gives a very big nod to 1980s story "Crisis on Infinite Earths".
Summary: I did enjoy Justice League: New Frontier, but between this and that, I consider this the slightly better movie. My only real reservations actually was two members of the voice cast. William Baldwin does what he can, but lacks the mystery and darkness of what I associate Batman with. Mark Harmon is also too monotone for Superman. My other reservation was Superman and Luthor's relationship which I think could have been expanded more.
Any feature that can throw in both a Star Wars joke & a Star Trek joke is okay in my book

Summary: PLOT IN A NUTSHELL: When a heroic version of Lex Luthor arrives from another universe to ask the Justice League for help in battling the Crime Syndicate on his world, our favorite heroes find themselves locked in a life and death struggle against evil dopplegangers who'll stop at nothing to get what they want. But who is the greater threat - the thuggish Ultraman (an evil version of Superman) or the cold, cruel calculating Owlman (evil version of Batman)?
Summary: I really like Justice League adventures, since they espouse the spirit of cooperation among the DC superheroes which I grew up with. My favorite DC comics in my childhood were my JLA comics. I really liked the recent revival of the JLA on TV. And now, I welcome these new mature animated JLA movies. Crisis on Two Earths is exactly what the title tells us. There are two Earths in this movie.
the Justice League flies high and goes up against... the bizarro world of themselves!

Summary: One of the things that makes these DC animated movies, specifically those as of late (with very few exceptions) so strong thematically is that they take the foundations of the characters from the comics and the TV shows, keep them strong, and build upon them as their own forms of mythology. We see this in Superman: Doomsday with the concept of 'Can Superman be taken down?
Summary: I've seen a lot of these animated super-hero movies and this is in my opinion by far the best. It's no coincidence that it was written by Dwayne McDuffie, who also penned the wonderfully absorbing story arcs in Cartoon Network's JLA and JLU. I won't recount the plot, others have done that before me, but suffice it to say the script is intelligent, mature, doesn't talk down to the viewers, yet is also accessible to people of almost any age.
Familiar yet Fresh. An all new Justice League tale that blows away the competition(I'm looking at you Marvel)

Summary: Though this is not the first animated movie based on the DC comics Justice League characters, it sure is the better one. Compared to the previous "Justice League: The New Frontier", Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths benefits from a more action driven storyline and mature writing that hearkens back to the style of the award winning Justice League animated TV series.
Summary: I have to say I was skeptical when I reviewed the casting for this installment. I enjoyed "Superman: Doomsday", and "Public Enemies". I really like the animated movie series installments that Warner Brothers has been releasing. Having withdrawal from "Batman: The Animated Series" and "Justice League", these new animated movies are just what the doctor ordered. The main topic of discussion for this series will be why some of the main voice characters weren't cast.
Summary: Story/plot: Good. In fact better than some real life movies Voice Actors: Good. Professional quality. Artwork/Animation: Good. This is the US standard without becoming CGI. Length/Run-Time: Good. It isn't too short and isn't too long for my kid. Comment: I wish there were more animations on the justice League. DC is doing much better than it was with its animations over the past decade.
Summary: Ever wondered how Superman would act if he was evil? Or have you ever wondered how our favourite superhero's would use their powers if they were evil? Than this is a film for you! Dwayne McDuffie did a great job writing the scenario for this film. Although similar stories have been used in previous comics/animated films, he still manages to make it unique in appearance.
