Justice League: Gods and Monsters Review

Story Line: In an alternate universe, the Justice League is a brutal force that maintains order on Earth. Superman is named Hernan Guerra and is the son of General Zod, who was rocketed to Earth as a child and raised by a family of Mexican immigrants in a hostile and cruel environment, leading him to become short tempered and withdrawn from humanity. Batman is Kirk Langstrom, a scientist who has inadvertently transformed himself into a form of pseudo-vampire in an attempt to cure his cancer, feeding on criminals to satisfy his hunger after his hunger begins to eat away at his humanity. Wonder Woman is Bekka, wife of New God, Orion, but an altercation made her leave Apokolips and eventually travel to Earth using a sword conjoined to a mother box. The Justice League's unaccountability is ultimately challenged by the world's governments following the suspicious deaths of renowned scientists, including Victor Fries being found drained of blood in the Arctic, Ray Palmer's car crushed with a woman's boot print in the door, and Silas Stone burned alive by heat vision, along with his son Victor Stone.

My Thoughts: It's the golden trio but not quite. They are darker and more blood thirsty but I enjoyed this twist. Superman's back story is twisted as Zod makes him his kid. Relax there is no rape involved; Superman is artificially created. The ship lands in a hostile environment and he is raised by immigrants. Suffice it to say that he did not grow up as happy go lucky farm boy Clark Kent.  Batman's back story just made me sad. Having cancer and then testing on yourself never goes right. I am not sure why anyone ever thinks that is smart. There are steps to testing and to ignore them you cannot be surprised when you turn into Man-Bat and suck blood.  Wonder Woman's back story made me feel like I was watching that moment in Aladdin where he takes Jasmine on a carpet ride. I swear I was waiting for him to start singing "A Whole New World". Sadly her courtship does not end in a happy manner.

Epic battle of Justice League and the evil doers. What I enjoyed the most about this movie is that it was just that bloody. It was fun to watch. The cursing, the blood, the Justice League not being squeaky clean do-gooders makes you smile. This is another great addition into the DC Universe. I would recommend checking this one out. Let me know your thoughts.

Sneak Peak of Upcoming Film: Batman: Bad Blood - Batman is presumed dead and we explore Night Wing as Batman as they need someone to stop the underworld from taking over due to the loss of Batman. Bat Woman appears in this one and she is determined to find out what happened to Batman. We also get to meet Bat Wing. Looks like we will be subjected to the world without Batman.

  1. After buying it on Amazon on blu-ray and watching it I loved it I give it a 9 out of 10 I don't regret buying it and I hope they make more to this new version of the justice league and bring in new versions of the flash or green lantern
