Film Review: Justice League – the New Frontier

22 Jun

 Synopsis: This animated feature is set in the 50s during the era of cold-war paranoia with a population that doesn’t trust superheroes and a government that doesn’t trust anyone. There is a malevolent force which has watched humanity grow in strength and violence and it has decided it has to eliminate it. Also included in the plot are shortened versions of Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern‘s origin stories.

This film’s setting is really used to great effect and the heroes have a classic Golden Age look about them (though their attitudes remain anachronistically modern, especially Wonder Woman). I’m sure there references to many of the other DC characters that I’m just not very familiar with.

Overall the main story was fairly routine. There may have been just too many characters and the story tried to do too much. Aquaman got one line and I don’t think Green Arrow even got that. Even though I liked it I think it’s going to mainly be one for the comic book fans

Rating 7/10
