That Was Atrocious
Things made to be all-ages or with kids in mind do not have to be childish or bad. Seriously, things that are made so that they can appeal to youth can still be fun and enjoyable for adults too. The thing is, so often we find pieces of entertainment that take the idea of, "For children," and use that as a synonym for, "Dumb humor, no plot, and otherwise lacking in enjoyment." For an example of a movie that is suitable for the young'uns but which is also great for grown-ups look to, "The Lego Movie." With that in mind other Lego-related animated films should be good too, right?
Ha, yeah, no.
"Justice League VS Bizarro League," is incredibly bad. The Lego games with DC characters tend to be fun, have a good plot, and feature computer graphics (of course). This movie sadly only has computer graphics and sorely lacks anything else.
The jokes tend to be pretty lame, with them being either Wonder Woman repeatedly tripping for no apparent reason, Cyborg stating things that sound vaguely racist for the writers to have him say as he's the only black character on the team (making it seem like it was what a bunch of white people thought a black man would talk like), or Batman having an inexplicable huge hatred for Superman.
The one positive thing I can say about the movie is that the animation is pretty solid. It kind of looks just like an unplayable Lego Justice League game--which is good as if this were a game it would be a pretty dreary waste of time. The fact that watching this at least didn't make my eyes bleed from awful animation is a plus.
Overall this was a quite bad movie, and one that no adult or child should be subjected to. Avoid it, avoid it like the plague.
1 out of 5 stars.
