The Centre: [narrating] Like all things on this hurtling sphere, I emerged from the molten center of creation. But mine has been a unique path.

Nice Animated Blend of Golden Age and Modern Comics
8 May 2008 | by mstomasoSee all my reviews

The voice talent cast is incredible. The story is nicely adapted. The pace is excellent. And the animation is OK.

Justice League: The New Frontier is a retold origin story for the Justice League. Plot heavy, and very consistent with its source material, this band of Golden and Silver Age heroes come together almost reluctantly to defend the earth, and to reclaim the American way, in response to an ominous, bizarre threat called "The Center".

The origins of Jonn Jonz and the Green Lantern are very nicely woven into this plot-heavy story. JLA: The New Frontier also incorporates much more character development than the average animated feature -and this is greatly enhanced by the amazing voice talent. Jeremy Sisto's Batman blew me away.

The only real flaw, from my perspective, was the rather stiff, traditional, animation. Nevertheless, this is a good fan film and worth seeing.
