LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash isn’t as good as its predecessors, and obviously a far cry from the LEGO feature films, but it’s a fun movie especially for younger viewers and at only 78-minutes (w/ credits), it at least flies by.

THE MOVIE – 2.5/5

Plot Synopsis: Earth, a shiny jewel floating in the blackness of space… and for the robot known as Brainiac (PHIL LAMARR), the last piece to capture for his collection of planets. Not if the Justice League has anything to say about it! But when the methodical Brainiac zaps Superman (NOLAN NORTH), Wonder Woman (GREY GRIFFIN) and Green Lantern (JOSH KEATON) to different places in time, the race is on for Batman (TROY BAKER) and The Flash (JAMES ARNOLD TAYLOR) to reassemble the Justice League while Cyborg (KHARY PAYTON) and Supergirl (JESSICA DICICCO) battle brainiac’s drones back on Earth.

Quick Hit Review: I found the last LEGO direct-to-video release, Attack of the Legion of Doom, to be a pretty entertaining flick, self-referent and with some funny jokes while Justice League vs. Bizarro League was a major letdown. The follow-up is Justice League: Cosmic Clash and although there are some entertaining moments, it was a thin story and the jokes didn’t nearly land as hard in comparison with the others. The voice acting is still well done and Brainiac as a villain was fun but otherwise it’s an inferior entry into the series.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.0/5

This release comes with a standard slip cover. Inside is a DVD Copy and redemption code for the Digital HD copy. Unfortunately, the features are limited with only The Justice League: Caught on Camera (2:55; HD) which is just a gag reel.

 


VIDEO – 4.25/5

Warner Home Video unleashes LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash: Original Movie (quite the lengthy title) onto Blu-ray presented with a 1080p high-definition transfer (MPEG-4 AVC codec) and as one would expect, this animated action flick looks pretty darn good in HD. Colors are vivid and it looks like clean transfer free of artifacts and aliasing.

 

AUDIO – 4.0/5

The disc comes with a semi-robust DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which offers up crisp and clear dialogue levels throughout and for an animated movie, which sometimes don’t quite have the oomph compared with live action features, the action scenes come through really nicely and gives the lossless track some respectable depth.

 



OVERALL – 2.0/5

Overall, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Cosmic Clash isn’t as good as its predecessors, and obviously a far cry from the LEGO feature films, but it’s a fun movie especially for younger viewers and at only 78-minutes (w/ credits), it at least flies by. The Blu-ray released by Warner Home Video has good video/audio but is limited in the features department.
