The Spectre: Interesting enough I suppose
30 January 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I'm not particularly familiar with The Spectre and I guess that's the point of these DC Showcases, an opportunity to become acquainted with lesser known heroes.

With the neat voice talent of Gary Cole & Alyssa Milano this DC short gets to the point quick.

It tells the story of a detective searching for a killer of a Hollywood actor, meanwhile the shadowy figure that is The Spectre is handing out his own brand of justice.

Again not being familiar with The Spectre I didn't really know what to expect and have to say it has a real film noir feel about it. Combine that with his powers seeming somewhat overpowered and I'd be curious to see more.

The Good:

Good voice talent

Well animated

The Bad:

Limited due to the time constraints

Things I Learnt From This Short:

Gary Cole needs to do more voice work
