Wasn´t dissapointed by the movie, but then again I really did not expect all that much from it when it finally came out.

Spoiler: show
Orm was portrayed really badly in my opinion. In the comics they managed to make him a complex character with understandable motives, but here he was just a pathetic, backstabbing WHAM.

And where was Vulco? I was hoping he would make another appearance since he already played a small roll in Flashpoint Paradox. That was really a wasted chance if you ask me. The revelation of his betrayl was one of the best scenes in the original story arc.

I also would have hoped to see some more scenes between Cyborg and Shazam. Those two are the best comic duo after Batman and Robin if you ask me :oldyella: New 52 Billy has really grown on me over time.

What I really liked about this movie, though was the portrayl of Batman. He really did nothing else than Detective work for the League (and gave Hal another lecture) which really worked if you ask me. In War they were still trying to hard to make him seem important during the big fights.

All in all I give this movie a 7/10. It was about as good as an average episode of Young Justice. Really wish this would come out as a show instead of a movie.

I agree with that plus....

Plus Mera felt like a lackey and Black Manta and Doctor Shin were wasted.

Throne of Atlantis was a big step up from JL: War, but still nowhere near the old standard of DC features.

Better than JL: War but not the best by far. It was nice to see Aquaman in action. I enjoyed the scenes with Batman and Green Lantern too.
