Justice Society World War II
Written by Luke Barnes
These days I am finding that a lot of the animated DC output is trapped in the meh zone, by that I mean it all just feels generic and samey, there is nothing to set one film apart from another. I used to love animated DC films when I was a kid, but recently I have been sorely disappointed, and this proves no exception.
None of the characters in this film felt likeable to me, and that is surprising considering that it is hard to make beloved superheroes unlikeable, yet they manage to find a way. The characters in this film range from boring and dull, to outright annoying.
The story feels uninspired also, are we not over the whole superheroes in history fad yet? Did Legends Of Tomorrow not entirely use up all the good ideas with the concept? Moreover, I felt myself getting so bored with this that my mind was starting to wander, and I was having a hard time paying attention.
Finally there are pacing issues galore here as well.
Overall, very meh, maybe if you were a DC diehard you might find something to enjoy here, but probably not.
Matt Boomer is trying
Every scene with President Roosevelt
The characters aren’t likeable
The premise is nothing we haven’t seen before
The animation feels samey
