PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not up to speed on the storyline that this film follows but I have enjoyed most of the DC Animated Universe so far. One has to wonder if the eventually arriving big screen universe can contend with what they are doing on home video. Let’s see if they can match their own quality. I will likely rent this on Amazon.com or wait until it comes to Netflix if they choose to run it. Will you be renting this one or purchasing on DVD when it comes out in a few more weeks. Let me know down below.
