Overview

Justice League: Justice on Trial utilizes its original 1.33:1 full-frame transfer and provides a clear picture. The bright colors and superb animation jump from the small screen and create an excellent viewing experience. The 2.0 channel stereo transfer represents a significant improvement over the version initially released on the television. The sounds do stay centralized and are limited by their origins, but it still is a worthwhile transfer. Considerable force emanates from the central speakers, which conveys a memorable listening experience. Each Justice League episode features a brief but informative introduction from producer/director Bruce Timm. The entries run for about two minutes each and present the creators' plans for the classic comic book characters. Timm also discusses the appearance of each of the major characters in "The Look of the Justice League." "The Justice League Watchtower" includes brief audio descriptions of each hero, accompanied by descriptions of their specific powers. Video highlights run for about 30 seconds and showcase classic moments for each member. Finally, the I.D. game provides simple clues and a logo for each hero. Viewers who have watched the episodes or know much about comics should have little difficulty.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
What are Superfriends for? How about saving Aquaman's underwater kingdom of Atlantis and clearing the falsely accused Green Lantern's name, for starters. This collection contains a pair of two-part episodes from the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network series that reunites the 1970s-vintage D.C. Comics super-group of costumed crime fighters -- Batman, Superman, the Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawk Girl, and Martian Manhunter. In "In Blackest Night," the Justice League (minus Batman and Wonder Woman) races against time to defend Green Lantern, who is on trial for destroying a planet. And our heroes make waves in "The Enemy Below," wherein the very buff Aquaman is usurped in a coup by his brother. This series boasts thrilling animation, thoughtful contemporary interpretations of these iconic characters, smart writing (how Green Lantern's accusers solved their "lawyer problem" is particularly amusing), and deft voice work (Michael Rosenbaum's Kevin Spacey-esque Deadshot). Some of the action packs a primal punch and may be too intense for younger viewers: At one point, for instance, Aquaman is forced to sever his own hand (offscreen, thankfully) to save his son's life. Our verdict: This series does the erstwhile Superfriends justice.
