Featuring the voice talents of Nathan Fillion and Tim Daly, Justice League: Doom is based on Mark Waid's much-heralded JLA: Tower of Babel. When Vandal Savage discovers Batman's contingency plan to defeat the Justice League should any of them go rogue, he steals it and learns the secret weakness of each superhero. Savage then forms his own army of supervillains and begins taking out the Justice League one by one. His ultimate plan is to exterminate the greater part of the human population and start a new civilization. With the priceless knowledge of how to defeat the Justice League, Bane exhumes Batman's parents, exploiting the hero's emotions to distract him long enough to gain the upper hand. Cheetah attacks Wonder Woman, implanting microscopic machines that take control of her visual and auditory senses, forcing her to fight everyone she encounters.]]>

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.
Without giving too much away, the primary villain puts out a call to some of the JL members' greatest foes including Mirror Master, Bane, Cheetah, Metallo, Ma'alefa'ak, and Star Sapphire. His plan is to have them individually take out members of the League and then, surprise, surprise, take over the world! Does he succeed? You'll have to watch the film to find out.
The story plays out quickly and is loaded with humor, especially a decent amount from Alfred Pennyworth early on, and as the plot thickens, we realize that the enemy has used one of the League's members' contingency plans in order to make an attempt at wiping them all out. As the individual members of the League fight for their lives, Cyborg is called in for the assist and helps them tackle their problems head on.
The animation is vibrant and clean, and all of the voice acting, especially that of Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern), Kevin Conroy (Batman), and Tim Daly (Superman) is excellent. The pacing is solid and I never grew bored with the story.
Overall this is an excellent addition to the DC Animated Universe. DC has proven once again that it has the chops to create some excellent animated films. Now only if they could telegraph that into their live action film universe!?!?!?!?
