About this movie

Make your stand against evil with this exciting collection of 4 DC Showcase Animated Shorts starring favorite DC Comics super heroes The Spectre, Jonah Hex, Green Arrow and Captain Marvel! Chosen the world's protector against the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man -- pride, envy, greed, hatred, selfishness, laziness and injustice -- young Billy Batson accepts his destiny as Captain Marvel. Battling alongside Superman against nefarious Black Adam, Billy soon discovers the challenge super heroes ultimately face: is it revenge or justice? For bounty hunter Jonah Hex and hard-boiled cop turned vengeance ghost The Spectre, getting their hands dirty is part of the job -- maybe even the fun part. But Superman, Green Arrow and Black Canary follow an internal moral code to guide their actions. They know it's easy to get lost in the darkness of the fight, especially when villans like Merlyn the Magnificent and Count Vertigo place no value on human life.

All but green arrow were good. Personally arrow is a lame hero. The anime style makes these look awesome especially superman vs black Adam. The spectre was best one. The old school creep show vibe was cool. They should do full length movie of spectre with this animation. I don't think any other kind of animation would do better. Only gave it a 4 because theyre just shorts and they put green arrow in.

This is a collection of animated shorts, featuring DC Comics characters. I think it was mislabeled. I think the original title was DC COMICS PRESENTS or WORLD'S FINEST, which were actual DC comic books that would have a major Superman/Batman story and then several other stories involving other DC heroes. This movie is a great tribute to those comics and characters. Shame they changed the title to just the first story in order to sell more copies here.

Purchased on sale from Google Play as a digital download. Was expecting an hour long movie featuring Superman, Captain Marvel and Black Adam. Instead got about 22 minutes of them followed by three not very good short cartoons of the Spectre, Green Arrow and Jonah Hex. Even though I purchased this while it was on sale ($13 instead of $18) I still feel ripped off. If I had known up front what this actually was I would have delayed my purchase and maybe at most would have rented to watch. Such as it is I guess it's mine now whatever that's worth.
