I’m a fan of these DC Animated movies. In this latest feature, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War the Justice League is tricked by Darkseid and the results are disastrous. Darkseid turns Batman into a minion. The Earth is being mined by Darkseid’s machinery into ruin. And Superman’s powers are suppressed by liquid Kryptonite. Things look grim.
Surprisingly, magic comes to the fore in this movie. John Constantine joints Raven (from Teen Titans) to use their combined powers to change the trajectory of doom.
If you’re a fan of the Justice League and the magic elements of the DC Universe, you’ll enjoy Justice League Dark: Apokolips War. GRADE: B
