Justice League: Throne of Atlantis (2015)

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis is follow up to Justice League: War. In comics there were other stories between these but in these animated movies these stories happen back to back. Last week I told reboot was in order to tell same stories again. I have seen this same story in another DC's animated movie. This time it is New 52 version.

Justice League: War told how Justice League got together. It felt weird how all of them happen to end up correct place correct time. This time movie can concentrate on story since heroes and their group was introduced first time. Story is about Aquaman and how Atlanteans attack Metropolis or where ever they attack.

Story begins as detective story. Movie benefits from staying in single story line instead of jumping from hero to hero. King of Atlantis was was killer during first movie. Prince blames humans. He wants revenge. Queen want to keep them hidden from humans. At this point Aquaman doesn't know who he is and what he has to do with Atlantis.

I liked Throne of Atlantis more than War. Darkseid was cool villain but story was quite weak. Justice League won by being stronger than Darkseid. This time things are not as black and white. There are interesting twists. Justice League outsmarts the villain to save the day. But this same story was already told in another animated movie. Maybe not exactly the same but close enough that reading synopsis you can't tell which is which.
