The inclusion of Shazam instead of Aquaman as it is in the comic may make you wonder where this film is going or if DC has made a mess of a fine comic book origin story of Justice League (as the film is an adaptation of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee's 2011 Justice League: Origin comic storyline), but as the movie starts to take shape while other similar elements of the comic is maintained the movie became both fun to watch and I found myself laughing all through as our heroes get to meet each other for the first time.

Reviewing the animation as it is, I have to say that this modern origin story of the Justice League was just cool. I really enjoyed how most thought that Batman was a myth until they met him, and then there is the whole Hal Jordan, trying to be a lone hero thing and just kept tripping on his own beetle headedness; you need to see that for yourself.

Working together as a team was not easy for our heroes at first, as they went at each other numerous times before they finally worked it out that they were all good guys, and when they did, Darkseid didn’t know what hit him.

The action and humor of this animation is what will keep you glued to the end and when the movie ends you will wish there was more.

The movie plot is simple, the world is changing and the emergency of super humans and aliens is making everyone scared and cranky, as our heroes (Batman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Superman, Wonder Woman, Shazam and Flash (Barry Allen)) were seen more like threats than heroes.
Then an attack happens on various locations on earth and as our heroes battle it with this creatures (Parademon) who seem to be kidnapping humans, they are drawn together as each attack kept leading to a center stage of the grand entrance of Darkseid.

Our heroes then teamed up against their common enemy and joined by Cyborg who seemed to have information about these creatures and what they want, our heroes band together to dealt with the threat.

The movie deviated from the comic in other parts too, not just in the area of replacing Aquaman with Shazam, but if this is a preview of what is to come in the future concerning the DC universe, then I’m both thrilled and expectant of the next movies as DC has found a way to make me eager and curious on the Justice League’s next adventure.

Justice League: War is available on Blu-ray and DVD, get a copy for yourself you will be glad you did.
