Jake T. Austin,
While in the comics Aquaman is a founding member that participated in the storyline, in the film he is replaced by Shazam. See more »
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 »
2. It is set-up for a sequel featuring the exact same characters (there is an after-credit scene).
3. Batman appears to be invincible, with the infinite ammo cheat on and untearable suit.
4. Wonder-woman behaves like a child.
5. Darkside is just a bully, with no motivation for his actions. He also carries on fighting when he really shouldn't be able to, and his omega blasts vary in power depending on who they hit.
6. The whole film is pure action with no plot and just a bit of characterisation.
7. Cyborg is a joke. No-one can explain how he got his powers, how they work, what they are, where the ammo come from, what the AI is etc. i know it doesn't explain much in the comic either, but if you willing to scrap Aquaman, then you can make other needed changes to.
8. Superman's transformation at the end is left unexplained as to how.
9. They use the 'reset' switch ending to get rid of thousand of enemy para-demons in one quick sweep (like the end of Avengers). Again it makes no sense and feels like a cheap resolution to a big problem. Too many shows are doings this and it needs to stop.
This is highly fun to watch. The animation is great and I don't have any problems with the voices like the other reviews. There is lots of fighting between the heroes, the monsters, Darkside etc. but thats all it is. Its as though it was written for children, but then we have swearing in it and our heroes acting like bullies and stealing stuff.
As a story, its lacking in every department. There was potential for greatness but it was never utilised. Watch it, enjoy it. But there are superior DC animations and this wont make it into anyone's top 10. But its worth watching.
