Goofs

When Shazam says his own name to introduce himself to the other heroes, the lightning that transforms him from Billy Batson to Shazam, and vice versa, does not strike. However in the New 52 continuity (upon which this film is based), the word "SHAZAM" only works when he intends for it to. Otherwise he can say it without effect. This was necessary when they changed the character's name from Captain Marvel. See more »

Quotes

Cyborg: I think what Lantern is saying is that it's time for some teamwork. So let's pull it together.
Shazam: Yeah, baby, clap it up.
The Flash: What's the plan, then?
Green Lantern: Well, he blasts those beams out of his eyes, right?
Wonder Woman: It's settled, then. We blind him.
Green Lantern: That's as good as a plan as any. Yeah, we follow and we stay out of sight. I'll turn on the fireworks to get his attention. Princess, you in striking distance and stab that son of a bitch in the eyes.
Wonder Woman: Like poor damned Oedipus.
Shazam: Yeah, what the hot Greek chick said.

Justice League: War is entertaining, but not completely satisfactory
16 April 2014 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

If something good came with the global reboot of DC Comics (known as "The New 52") is that it allowed modern writers the opportunity to rethink the old relationships between the superheroes from that universe, and create completely new dynamics, but influenced by decades of established continuity. In other words, they recreated the DC universe for a new generation, studying the pros (and cons) of past generations. The film Justice League: War pretends to do the same with the DC animated universe, initiating a new continuity separated from previous films (such as Justice League: Doom and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths). The result is generally good, even though I think it was a mistake to start the new phase with this film. The screenplay is based on the story Origin, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Jim Lee, and even though it diverts a bit from the original material, it respects the personality of the heroes and the naturalness of their interactions. The voice work feels a bit insipid. None of the "classic" actors came back, and I guess it will take a few movies for the new ones to find their characters' rhythm and style. The animation is normal and the action scenes compensate their lack of emotion with a big scale and visual spectacle to some point. However, my main complaint is that there isn't any time to properly introduce so many characters. I think it would have been better to first produce two or three films dedicated to individual heroes (or at least by couples), where the necessary time could have been employed for us to get familiarized with their differences and attributes in this new universe, instead of agglutinating them in a collective movie where they can barely dedicate five minutes or less to every one of them. And I don't say this as a fanboy (even though I undoubtedly am), but as a casual spectator. In that level, I found Justice League: War entertaining but not totally satisfactory; nevertheless, I think it's a good starting point in this evolution from DC Comics. I don't know whether the reboot was a good or bad idea; but I'm glad it didn't damage the animated universe. However, that might mean that they will never make the film Justice League: New World Order, my favorite story from this team. Bad luck. Maybe for the next reboot 50 years from now. By that time, I will be... ugh... I shall better not think about that.
