Lego DC Comics Super Heroes- Justice League: Cosmic Clash Blu-ray Review

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes- Justice League- Cosmic Clash Blu-ray

“Lego DC Comics Super Heroes- Justice League: Cosmic Clash” is in line with the last two movies. Make of that as you will.

“Lego DC Comics Super Heroes- Justice League: Cosmic Clash” begins with the reveal that the villainous Brainiac has been traveling the galaxy shrinking planets and collecting them for preservation. The next planet he has his eye on is Earth, but first, he has to contend with the Justice League (Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Flash and later Supergirl). Unfortunately for the JL, they suffer a set back when 3 members are displaced in different time periods. Now, Batman and Flash have to travel through time to find them AND stop Brainiac.

Much like the previous 2 films, “Lego DC Comics Super Heroes- Justice League: Cosmic Clash” is aimed at a much younger audience unlike the more adult oriented DC animated films like the recent “Batman: Bad Blood.” Personally, I have no problem with this as it’s a nice gateway to a larger DC universe for children. What I do have a problem with his how these movies turn out.

3 years ago, DC put out a flawed albeit fun movie titled of “Lego Batman: The Movie- DC Super Heroes Unite.” Unlike the 3 Lego DC Comics Super Heroes films, this one had the perfect balance of humor that appealed to kids and adults alike. Now, granted, they are making a theatrical Lego Batman film that will likely scratch that itch, but I wish they would go back to that tone for this series of films. Sure, it’s cool to see DC references and or cameos by the likes of Vandal Savage, Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, but those moments aren’t worth wading through some truly annoying humor. Seeing things like a watered down Supergirl, a Mecha Leaguer (don’t ask) or Batman and company playing hide and seek just isn’t funny or cute. There’s a proper way to make the characters funny without making them come off as cringe worthy. Just look at the Lego Batman or Lego Star Wars specials to see how it can be done right.

Note: There are 2 editions of this release. One contains a mini Lego figure and the other does not.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.85:1 1080p. How does it look? The vibrant colors of the CGI animation always shine in hi-def.

Audio Track: 5.1 DTS-HD MA. How does it sound? This busy track has no problem juggling the numerous sound f/x, music, and voice acting.

Extras:
* DVD copy and digital copy.
* Legoland coupon.
* Trailers for other Warner, DC, and Lego products.
* “The Justice League: Caught On Camera” is an animated gag reel. It’s nothing special.
