Lego Doom Reigns Down on Justice League in Latest Movie


Lego brings the DC Universe alive in again with their latest direct-to-DVD movie “Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom.” The 77-minute feature continues the adventures of the Superfriends in a world where it’s always hip to be square (or rectangular). Although kids are the main aim of the film, their parents will no doubt enjoy it as well. I think everyone grew up playing with Legos at some point in their lives.

Crime is on the run as the newly formed Justice League keeps Metropolis safe and this makes evil genius Lex Luthor very unhappy. Together with Black Manta, Sinestro and a gang of ruthless recruits, Lex builds his own league and declares them the Legion of Doom. With this super powered team of terror and a plan to attack the top-secret government site, Area 52, can Lex finally be on the verge of victory in “Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom?”

“Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom” doesn’t have much in the way of bonus material. There’s a featurette entitled “Click, Zap, Boom! Creating the Sound Design.” It goes behind-the-scenes and shows viewers how the sound team creates what you hear onscreen. It would have been great if a couple of the “Superfriends” episodes were included like they are on the DC animated movie releases.

Fans will be overjoyed with the Trickster mini-figure that is packaged with “Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom.” Older comic book geeks will recognize the voice of Mark Hamill portraying the colorful villain in the film. The actor also played the character in both the new and old live-action “The Flash” television shows.

If you’ve seen “The Lego Movie,” “Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite,” or “Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League” you know exactly what to expect here. We get a whole lot of ridiculously corny puns and one-liners that will leave your children laughing and, at times, the adults in the room groaning. However, “Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom” is filled with enough non-stop action and entertaining humor to keep your attention and leave you smiling in the end.

“Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom” is available now in a Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack.
