When Vandal Savage discovers Batman's secret contingency plan to defeat the Justice League should any of them go rogue, he steals it, forms his own army of supervillains, and begins taking out the Justice League one by one.]]>
Extras are plentiful, with the 36-minute documentary A League of One: The Dwayne McDuffie Story leading the pack; it's a heartfelt tribute to the writer-producer, whose love and respect for the DC milieu led to his stellar work on the Justice League series (and many other titles) before Justice League: Doom marked his final screen credit prior to his death in 2011. The 20-minute featurette Guarding the Balance attempts to address the moral issues touched upon by the film, while Cyborg, a supporting player in Doom, gets his own short showcase as an apparent launch pad for his own future status as a lead hero. There's also a pair of JL episodes and a preview of the next DCU feature, Superman vs. the Elites. The extras are definitely worth a look, while the feature itself will either intrigue or leave viewers wanting. --Paul Gaita

This movie like all the previous animated movies are a animated feature which are always nice and has the feel to it of the Justice League animated series series. This film also introduces Cyborg which is a character some people might not be familiar with, even though he was a hugely popular character in the animated cartoon series of Teen Titans and has had some good success in comics recently, and is a nice change of pace to the story. This film does a good job of plot twists and those not familiar with the Babel story will be shocked at some of the things that happen.
The film is rated PG-13 like the other films that DC has released so parents with younger kids should be aware that it is given this rating not only for intense action and some blood, but several of the heroes weaknesses are used against them in a dark way, and some are tortured, so there is some emotional drama going on that you do not previously see in the other animated films. You also have the usual Superman beating up on villains type of action.Read more ›
I also really enjoyed the character design. The stylization was just enough the make the drawings more handsome.
This movie and JLA: The New Frontier are my 2 favorite DC releases over the last 12 years.
"Doom," doesn't just take on the Justice League, it deconstructs each of its members. It's one thing to beat Batman (Kevin Conry) up, but quite another to bury him alive with the corpses of his parents. We all know the Martian Manhunter (Carl Lumbly) is vulnerable to fire, but what would happen to him if he was set perpetually ablaze? In a lot of ways the fate that befalls each of the Justice League feel like a throw-down between two elementary school comic fans: anybody can beat Superman (Tim Daly) with a kryptonite bullet, right?
What makes "Justice League: Doom" so much fun is how it takes common horror movie plots and applies them to superheroes. Flash (Michael Rosenbaum) gets trapped in a "Speed"-like diabolical trap in which he can never slow down without exploding. Filling this Jigsaw-esque role is Vandal Savage (Phil Morris), the DC universe's resident Dr. Phibes.
If that was all there was to "Doom," it would merely be a noteworthy addition to the DC Animated Universe. "Doom" is also a tongue-in-cheek throwback to the cheesy animated series, "Challenge of the Superfriends" and the Legion of Doom, complete with domed fortress and an unlikely agreement to work together to take down the Justice League. Hilarity ensues.Read more ›

I wish I knew it's really stupid since it just allows people to complain about nothing before release. What I really am puzzled by is the ultraviolet complaints why do people think the publishing company is going to care what they write on Amazon?
