JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time, unlike its DCU counterparts, is a big downgrade in quality especially with the story, but I get what the filmmakers were after: a tongue-in-cheek comedy adventure and throwback to the old cartoon series; however the humor is pretty basic and really only anyone under the age of 13 might get anything substantial out of it.

PLOT SUMMARY

Get ready for a battle of the ages when the Justice League faces off against its archenemies, the Legion of Doom. A mysterious being known as the Time Trapper (voiced by COREY BURTON) arises, and a sinister plan led by Lex Luthor (FRED TATASCIORE) sends the Legion of Doom back in time to eliminate Superman (PETER JESSOP), Wonder Woman (GREY DELISLE GRIFFIN) and Batman (DIEDRICH BADER) before they became super heroes. For Aquaman (LIAM O’BRIEN), Flash (JASON SPISAK) and Cyborg (AVERY WADDELL), along with teen super heroes Karate Kid (DANTE BASCO) and Dawnstar (LAURA BAILEY), the stakes have never been higher, the rescue mission never deadlier. So join the fight for the future as the Justice League confronts its ultimate challenge… the threat of having never existed.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

There’s nothing of note here, just two bonus cartoons (“The All New Super Friends Hour” Season 2 and “Super Friends” Season 5). Not even a scene selection, so kind of surprised this release even got a slip cover.


VIDEO – 3.75/5

JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time comes to DVD via Warner Home Video presented in anamorphic widescreen and colors are generally bright and the amount of artifacts isn’t over abundant.

AUDIO – 3.0/5

The “movie” is only given a Dolby Digital Surround track and although nothing noteworthy, is serviceable enough, just don’t expect any great impact during the action sequences, however, dialogue levels are clear.



OVERALL – 2.5/5

Overall, JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time, unlike its DCU counterparts, is a big downgrade in quality especially with the story, but I get what the filmmakers were after: a tongue-in-cheek comedy adventure and throwback to the old cartoon series; however the humor is pretty basic and really only anyone under the age of 13 might get anything substantial out of it. As it stands, it’s at least a watchable animated flick but hardly anything I will recall in a week’s time.
