DC’s Crisis Movie: A Small Review

Just saw DC’s new animated flick, Crisis On Two Earths.  Gotta say it was pretty epic.

Big Blue and the rest of the cast make this an action-packed romp.

The story?  Quite good.  In summary, Earth-2 (an opposite DC Universe where all evil characters are good guys and vice-versa) is being overrun by a crazed group of villains called the Crime Syndicate (evil JLA).  So Lex Luthor (good and leader of his Earth’s Justice League) builds a portal to get help from our JLA.  Immensely awesome fights ensue.

Pluses to this?  James Woods’ Owlman, Gina Torres’ Superwoman, and Martian Manhunter’s new threads.  Owlman and Superwoman are incredibly crazed, deranged, psychopathic, scary, and pretty compelling.

Minuses?  Ultraman, the President of Earth-2, Johnny Quick, and William Baldwin’s Batman.  Ultraman sounded like an Italian knock-off and was pretty two-dimensional.  Johnny Quick’s British accent made me want to slit my wrists.  The President of Earth-2 was just a big pussy.  If you recognize who he is it just makes you laugh, then cry when you see more.

Batman?  Well, no more William Baldwin from now on ok?  Pay Kevin Conroy more money.  Billy Baldwin’s Batman sounded too… nice.  Was he a badass?  Hell, yes.  But when your voice was so un-intimidating it kind of took a little of the cool factor out of it for me.

The Boss of Bosses... What a stupid name...

All in all, it was a great addition to DC’s Animated Movie lineup.  Marvel, take notes.  This is what we want to see.

Pay Kevin Conroy more money.  Seriously.
