The Justice League Declares War
In Gotham City, Batman continues to fight both crime and ever-growing public distrust. But when he and fellow superhero Green Lantern uncover a fiendish plot to destroy Earth, they agree it’s time for action. Forging an alliance with Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and newcomers Cyborg and Shazam, the Justice League battles villains to save the planet. This animated action adventure movie continues the saga of the legends of the DC universe.
This is the second DC cartoon movie to feature material from the New 52 series.
In the comic book series, Aquaman was a founding member of the Justice League, but he was replaced by Shazam in the film.
For the movie, Wonder Woman’s New 52 costume has been modified to make it less revealing.
In the earlier DC Comics series, Cyborg is a founding member of the Teen Titans. In the New 52, he’s a founding member of the Justice League, replacing Martian Manhunter.

Meet the Characters
The Flash (voiced by Christopher Gorham)
Also known as Barry Allen, the Flash’s powers are the result of a laboratory accident that left him with an extra-dimensional energy called the 'speed force'.
Green Lantern (voiced by Justin Kirk)
Green Lantern’s powers come from a ring bestowed on him by an alien. The ring is capable of emitting many different kinds of energy. His alter ego is Hal Jordan.
Superman (voiced by Alan Tudyk)
Born on the planet Krypton, Superman is sent to Earth for his safety. Raised there as Clark Kent, he uses his powers to protect the innocent.
Wonder Woman (voiced by Michelle Monaghan)
Wonder Woman (AKA Diana Prince) was molded from clay and brought to life by magic. She is the greatest super-heroine in the DC universe.
The world's finest heroes founded the Justice League in order to stop an alien invasion of Earth. During a criminal pursuit, Batman crosses paths with the arrogant intergalactic cop Green Lantern, and the unlikely duo uncovers an impending threat bigger and more deadly than anything the Earth has faced before. For the Earth to have a chance to survive, it will be a race to forge an uneasy alliance of its greatest super powers, including the Kryptonian alien, Superman; the Amazonian envoy, Wonder Woman; and the Scarlet Speedster, the Flash, Cyborg and teen super hero Shazam. Sean Astin and Michelle Monaghan provide voices for this DC animated cartoon.
You want a pretty decent idea of how a live-action 'Justice League teams up to stop Darkside from destroying the Earth' adventure will go, here you are. --Scott Mendleson, Forbes
Lots of fun. DC has upped the ante on this series with War. --Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
Warner Bros. Animated fans have come to expect a supremely high standard of excellence from the films featuring the characters from the DC Comics Universe and 'War' just doesn't measure up. --Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files

I am a Green Lantern fan, but, I always thought the Lantern was supposed to be someone who was more on the serious side, not the cocky, non-strategic thinker like this one was. Hal Jordan has always been confident, somewhat cocky but, more serious when the time came for the butt-kicking. This one was quite amateurish and got his buttocks kicked a little too easily.
Superman came off too cocky, too. I would expect, in the "real world" for these superheroes to be quite self-absorbed but, this was a big change in the Superman persona for me.
Batman was the only one who seemed to appreciate the seriousness of the situation they were in ahead of time. While I would expect him to be serious, the others were a surprise, to the negative. I wanted to see Batman do to Superman like he did in "Doom" or "Dark Knight Returns".
I did like what Wonder Woman was: funny, but darned serious.
Flash was as Flash usually is: some serious but, comic relief.
I did like the treatment of Cyborg. He, historically, is an afterthought. He played a serious and significant role here. Good.
It has been a long time since I collected comics and, I suppose there have been many new personalities instilled in the characters.
Maybe I'm just a dinosaur.
Overall, the storyline was well done. Darkseid is a big, bad guy. I do, sort of, think he went down too easily, though.
I would recommend seeing this. Not quite as good as Doom, but, worth seeing. I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could've.
Some people have said they don't like the voice actors, but I'm okay with each generation getting their own characters to appreciate. Just because I like Kevin Conroy doesn't mean I can't appreciate another Batman. Under the Red Hood is still awesome, and that one doesn't even have Mark Hamill!
I, like most, enjoyed the treatment Cyborg got. I think he's often underutilized, so it's nice to see him get some attention.
From my understanding, Superman is still supposed to be coming into his role, so he hasn't embraced his Beacon of Hope status yet.
I didn't like the treatment Green Lantern got, but he's the most true to form character from the comic... which was written by Geoff Johns.
Aside from the Divine Crowbar, there isn't anything that I don't enjoy/appreciate about this movie. I would love to see DC do all seven remaining volumes of this series.
While lacking in familiar voices for the cast that would present a familiar feel for those who enjoyed DC's previous animated offerings, the animation is a notch shy of top-notch and the performances are quite good. Other DC movies have had better action than this one, and more fleshed-out plots, though. Puzzlingly, though the first in line as far as animated "New 52" movies go, this one doesn't really try to establish itself as a starting point in the new continuity. It feels like a movie that should have happened after Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Shazam all had their own individual animated movies.
Nevertheless, the flaws didn't ruin the experience for me; if you're already a DC fan it'll probably be a blast to watch. Can't recommend it to newcomers, though. Dip into some other DC media first.
