Justice League: New Frontier (DVD)
Based on Darwyn Cooke’s award-winning graphic novel, this thrilling adventure reveals the origin of the Justice League. With Cold War paranoia putting Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman under government suspicion, only the gravest threat imaginable can force these heroes – along with an army of newcomers, including The Flash, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter – to unite in a spectacular showdown to save the world.]]>

This was the perfect way for the hero's to come together...batman knew about martian manhunter even when he was in his human form and martian manhunter couldnt sense that batman was in the room..awesome to make batman look awesome!!! they really went more into the individual hero's story's untill they came together it was a pure awesome piece of art...if you read comics and love comivs from silverage you'll love this movie.......if you dont read comic books and don't know about these hero's that much then you might not like it and just complain about the artwork...
All of the Justice League mainstays are involved, but Green Lantern, Flash and Martian Manhunter are the main focus. Their character arcs drive the feature, and are all interesting and reasonably well developed. This is particularly true of Hal Jordan, whose origin as Green Lantern gets center stage.
The look and feel of New Frontier is purposely that of a different time, not only in setting but also style. Golden and Silver Age character designs are used and the story itself focuses on changing attitudes and fears of the 1950s adapted to larger than life heroes and threats. Fans solely of modern comics might find this jarring but those interested in all eras should enjoy it.
The special features for the two-disc version are excellent, primarily the look at how villains evolved in comics through time and their relationships with the heroes they fight. Other features include a discussion of adapting the story from the comic and three episodes from Justice League Unlimited.
There's a lot covered and the movie moves at a quick pace, but I think it's works well and spends time in the right spots to flesh out the story. Overall New Frontier is a nice tribute to a different era and type of comic story and a strong addition to DC's animation library.
