Sweet Jeebus, but Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths is bad stuff - Alec Baldwin is even worse at being Batman than he is at being a father. I actually stopped watching 15 minutes in to watch this again just to revive my flagging awesomeness levels to the degree I consider sufficient while watching something with Batman in it. "Stop all engines. REPEL BOARDERS."
JL:CoTE has animation on a par with the cartoon series but not much better (not that this is a criticism), and the fights are okay, it's just that on their own they can't carry an entire movie and the thing as whole is pretty average in isolation while the pedigree of the creatives makes me expect better: written by Dwayne McDuffie, starring Nolan North, Gina Torres, James Woods - I mean James Woods plays a character who's barely hostile at all. What? What the hell, man? It's James Woods - the guy can't order a burger without someone calling the cops, such is his intense aura of inappropriate hostility that he exhudes at all times, and here he's cast as a quiet and measured schemer. Illiterate cats the internet over have a word for this: FAIL.
