Rating: ***

Cast: Troy Baker, Grey Griffin, Nolan North

Brainiac targets Earth as the next planet for his collection of shrunken worlds, but the Justice League forces him to retreat and revise his strategy. As a result, his second attack creates a temporal vortex that sends Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Superman into different time periods, which leaves Earth at his mercy. Batman and Flash build a time machine to rescue their teammates, while Cyborg and Supergirl attempt to stall Brainiac's forces. Once the team is reassembled, the final battle for Earth takes place between Brainiac and the Justice League's version of Voltron.

Similar to "Gotham City Breakout" (2016), the movie succeeds primarily due to the delightfully grumpy, paranoid, and angst-ridden Batman. Troy Baker once again delivers a fantastic performance, and the supporting cast is quite strong as well. The writing is fun and clever, although the caveman humor tends to be tiresome. The action is fast and furious, and never lets up. A good time all around.
