Justice League:New Frontier: SE (DVD)
Inspired by the best-selling graphic novel by Darwyn Cooke and produced by the multiple Emmy® award winning animation legend, Bruce Timm, The New Frontier is the epic tale of the founding of the Justice League. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are all here of course, and so are Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and Flash - whose incredible origins will be told for the very first time. Strangers at first, these very different heroes must overcome fear and suspicion to forge an alliance against a monster so formidable, even the mighty Superman can not stop it. If they fail, our entire planet will be "cleansed" of humanity.]]>

The movie uses a villain of epic proportions to bring together the members of the Justice League, and it arrives at this consolidated group of heroes through a rather disjointed way. Stories about Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman, Batman, and Green Lantern all seem to be going on at the same time until they come together and the story makes sense. In a way, this movie reminded me of "The Usual Suspects", in which you didn't get what was going on until the end, but this movie was much easier to understand. I think that with a little bit of background it would have been easier to follow and then would have been more enjoyable from the get-go.
Like other Superfriends / Justice League adventures, the villain in this one is a real meanie and incredibly destructive. One superhero dies and then comes back; others suffer significant injuries which eventually heal. There are also a group of heroes which are unfamiliar and are not introduced, so you either have to have background knowledge or look them up after watching the movie; fortunately, these are lesser heroes which thus far have not played a big part in any stories I am familiar with.
In the final analysis, this movie presents an interesting story, a great villain, and a fresh look at the superheroes we watched and read about as a child. While I might have done a few things differently when crafting it, I wouldn't hesitate to watch it again. It was interesting, fun and entertaining - just what I wanted out of this type of movie. Enjoy!
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...
